Re: power line to ethernet
This is a developing area. It takes a lot of sophistication to
put signals over ANY powerline. First, it is stopped by the
transformers. Second, it is shared with anyone on the same
transformer. Third, you do not want to think about lightening.
Fourth, it is as or more challenging than cell phones in the
city and uses the same sort of Code Division Multiplexing.
Think about what happens to the anntenna properties of your
power lines in your house when you ... turn on the toaster. - RM
