Networking solutions are a dime-a-dozen these days, but Amped Wireless
has a new solution that's actually far more useful and practical than
most. The company's new A/V Net Connect is a home Wi-Fi network bridge
for audio and video devices, enabling network connectivity for things
like Blu-ray players, game consoles and TVs. The AV3000, as it's known,
basically eliminates the need to run long, unsightly Ethernet cords to
each and every component in your house that needs an Internet
connection. Game consoles and other set-top boxes around the TV come to
mind; they need to be online, but it's rare to find an Ethernet port
near your TV.
This particular box uses five Ethernet ports, so that up to five
non-networked devices can be brought online. It'll work with most
802.11b/g/n wireless routers, and it also features a 300Mbps 802.11n
wireless bandwidth channel for streaming HD media. The box should be
available soon for around $99.99, which sure beats laying miles and
miles of Ethernet cord.
