They call it GameNet, and say it’s designed to speed up the fun for players who use a wireless connection to the Internet. What it is, actually, is a home wiring network device that transfers an Internet connection to any wall plug that is part of a home or office wiring system. These have been around for several years, and they work pretty well.

The $170 package from is targeted at game players who have poor wireless connections in some parts of the house. Like any other power-Gamenetline networking system, it can be used to connect computers as well as game machines. The kit comes with two adapters that plug into electric sockets and the computers or game machines are in turn plugged into those. Set-up was a snap and took us about two minutes. The kit come with a disk of software that appears to be totally useless; drop it in the circular file, you don’t need it.
