FOR SALE: Actiontec MegaPlug AV 200 Mbps Ethernet Adapters

FOR SALE: Actiontec MegaPlug AV 200 Mbps Ethernet Adapter Pair $60

These are Like-New and barely used, and I still have the original packaging. They worked great in 99% of my home, just not on the 2 outlets I needed to use for my application. Ive since replaced them with some 5GHz 802.11N hardware. If you have good powerline-based control coverage in your home, these will work well for you. Just happens that the outlet I had to plug the router-side of these into is the only one in the house that does not work (I had no flexibility without running a low-WAF extension cord to use it). The same outlet I wanted to use also is an X10 dead zone in my house, as Ive tested it.... What Im trying to say is these did not work for my particulat scenerio, but should for someone else. They have 4.5 stars with 48 reviews at Amazon ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000QG ... oh_product ), so you can see for yourself. I bought them in May 2008, and used them for a week before I switched to the 802.11N harware. Ive been keeping them around becuase I though I would still use them elsewhere, but I get such good coverage with my hybring 802.11n 2.4/5Ghz network Ive decided to sell them. Im thinking the best candidate to buy these is someone who already has some working in their home and wants a great deal on 2 more adapters, or someone whos been wanting to try them but thought theyre too expensive.

I paid $119 on Amazon in May 2008. Street Price appears to be around $100 for new.

Your price: $60 for the pair.


Here are all the specs:

Supports HomePlug AV speeds up to 200 Mbps
Great for distributing TV signal or high-bandwidth content through power lines
Co-exist but not interoperable with 14 Mbps and 85 Mbps HomePlug devices

What this means, essentially, is that you can make all your files top-secret, for your eyes only, and never worry about outsiders snooping around your personal business. Features
