TV glitch mars Xbox 360 Kong game

These are HomePlug adapters which allow you to turn your domestic power cabling into a network. Very easy to instal (just plug them in), and simple to configure. I used to have five Airport Express units around the house, but bandwidth was not the best. I now have eight of these boys replacing my 802.11g network and I can now stream movies from my son’s PC to the media center downstairs without any jumps or skips.

They’re the dogs.
