The Actiontec HLE08509-01 is a powerline networking four-port hub. It is one of Actiontec's next generation powerline networking products, and it uses the latest Home Plug standard. It can provide speeds up to 200 Mbps when used in conjunction with other 200 Mbps equipment. It is designed to work with a Home Plug ethernet adapter to provide four additional ethernet ports off of one outlet, however if Home Plug powerline networking already exists, the ethernet adapter is not necessary. The installation is simply plugging the device into an existing network. Devices such as this are popular choices for connection a home theater to a network, as most home theater devices are plugged in nearby and do not have Wi-Fi built in.
