If you want to install lightning-fast Ethernet in your home, you have two options. First, you can pay a contractor hundreds or even more than $1,000 to run Cat6 cable and install Ethernet ports. Or if you’d rather save your money, you can pick up a D-Link GigaBit PowerLine Internet Adapter Kit on Amazon for $50. Simply plug one box into an open power outlet next to your router, then plug the other box into a power outlet near your computer or anything else you want to connect to Ethernet. Voila, you’ve got gigabit Ethernet, and all the data runs over the power lines that are already wired in your home! Have more than one device you want to connect to Ethernet? Just buy additional adapters and plug them in anywhere in your home.
