The Actiontec HLE08500-01 is a powerline ethernet adapter. It is Actiontec's older ethernet adapter, as it uses an older version of the HomePlug AV standard and can only provide 85mbps networking speeds, instead of 200mbps. It is compatible with all routers and gateways, and can be used to either create a Home Plug powerline network from an existing ethernet netowrk, or as a means of expanding an existing Home Plug network. Due to the lower speed and relative ease of installtion, the Actiontec HLE08500-01 is most popular as a way to connect game consoles to a network, rather than computers.
