If you're looking to finally set up that home network, but don't want to deal with a spotty wireless connection, Newegg.ca has a pretty good deal on a powerline adapter you might find useful. For a limited time, you can pick up the refurbished Netgear Powerline Network Adapter for on sale for $19.99; down from $49.99 and a pretty decent deal for the plug and play networking peripheral. Normally, a pair of these devices can start at around $60 depending on the brand so getting a few for $40 isn't that bad at all.
Though it's a refurbished unit, chances are they've been returned to Newegg because buyers were expecting two adapters in the box. It should be noted, however, that you do need two or more of these to make a successful networking connection. Using just one of these does nothing for you as it has no end to connect to. As they say, it takes two to tango and it's applicable to this as well.
The deal is live now but is a weekly limited time promotion. Shipping is extra.
