The Netgear XAVNB2001 is a Poverline AV 200 Wireless-N Extender Kit featuring a Powerline AV 200 Ultra Adapter (XAV2001) and a Powerline AV 200 Wireless-N Extender (XAVN2001). The former establishes an initial connection from a broadband connection to the outlet, while the latter receives that connection from a remotely located electrical outlet, and then wirelessly transmits it to PCs, TiVO, Slingboxes, televisions, and gaming consoles. Both XAVNB2001 components are plug and play and include automatic security and the ability to pre-test an electrical outlet connection—thereby helping users determine which one offers the greatest performance potential.

When is this going to become available? Annoying how early this was announced and then not yet released.
