To extend a network using the electric lines in your home, you'll also need a separately sold NETGEAR Powerline Network Adapter such as the XE102, XE103, or XE104. Simply plug the XEPS103 into a wall outlet and connect it to your router with an Ethernet cord. Plug the other Powerline Network Adapter into any wall outlet and you have an instant Ethernet port to plug a computer, gaming console, or other networkable device with an RJ-45 Ethernet plug.
