I'm going to be using it in our kitchen where we do not currently have any sort of network access. From what I've seen, I have two options:Or, I could pick up a Linksys WAP11 (Wireless Network Access Point) and use my home's existing 802.11b network. The brand-spankin' new firmware for the WAP11 allows it to be a wireless bridge and act as a client to another access point which would work great in this particular case.
Given the distance and angle between the kitchen and the Apple Airport upstairs, I suspect that I wouldn't get full bandwidth out of a wireless connection, so going with the HomePNA technology might be a better choice.
Unfortunately for me, I have to decide fast since the PE102's are on sale at CompUSA for $50 off only through tomorrow (they're only $100 apiece now). For comparison, the WAP11 is $250 (with a $15 mail-in rebate).
Hmmm... I guess I've answered my own question in terms of lower cost and probably better performance. What do you all think?
