Sling Media currently ships the Slingbox without an integrated wireless adapter or USB port. If your living room isn’t hard-wired for data, connecting requires the purchase of a network bridge. SlingLink attempts to capitalize on that oversight as a branded HomePlug Powerline network adapter. I prefer the Sling folks focus on providing wireless support, either built-in or as a USB accessory, with Slingbox2 rather than peddling uncommon network gear.
Sling Media says: With Intellons HomePlug standard technology, SlingLink adapters allow consumers to quickly and easily connect Sling Medias Slingbox an award-winning product that allows consumers to access their living room television experience at any time, from any location in the world to a home network, by simply plugging the adapters into existing electrical outlets. With SlingLink adapters, every outlet in a home can have the same broadband connection available. This is especially important where the TV or cable connection is not located in the same room as the customers home Internet connection.
