HomePNA Ethernet Adapter
The HB2000 is a HomeNet to Ethernet Bridge which connects
any Ethernet device to a high speed access device or to a
HomeNet LAN for Internet and Intranet access. This Bridge
brings you the newest Ethernet compatible technology that
uses the telephone wiring as the network's physical wiring
thereby eliminating the need to install new wiring. It is
designed to operate on the telephone wire installed in homes.
With this Bridge, every RJ-11 jack is Internet-Ready. Devices connected to this Bridge can share any high
speed Internet access line-V.90, ISDN, cable, xDSL or wire-less modem.
This Bridge allows you to connect PCs and Ethernet enabled devices, such as Switch, HUB and printers, to
a HomeNet LAN by simply plugging into the existing RJ-11 jacks. This Bridge's 1 Mbps throughput
provides the bandwidth necessary to support existing networking applications such as application sharing,
peripheral sharing and file sharing.
For providing a LAN networking solution, the Bridge acts as a high speed network access device for 1
Mbps Internet service that shares the existing telephone wire with POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service)
service. This allows multiple PCs to access the Internet concurrently. The Bridge also distributes bandwidth
within a customer premises that use V.90, ISDN, Cable, wire-less and xDSL modems to deliver high-speed
access to the outside of the customer premises.
