LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Playing video games online often limits avid gamers to one television or computer in the home with a poor connection not optimized for serious online gaming. For gamers looking for a solution to their connection troubles, Corinex introduces GameNet, the latest in online console gaming connectivity solutions.
For $169.99 and with a simple two minute installation, consumers can connect their gaming consoles to the Internet from any room in the home and experience the ultimate gaming adventure.
GameNet creates a secure, faster than Wireless, 200 Mbps connection with mobile plug-in adapters which utilize the existing electrical wiring in the home to create the fastest, most stable connection between the Internet and any Ethernet-enabled gaming console. GameNet can even connect multiple game consoles together for large gaming events.
After reading this far I was impressed. I thought GameNet was some new form of broadband. 200 Mbps connections, that just sounds awesome! then i got to thinking.
If this thing connects to your own broadband connection what is the point of having 200Mbps in your home? You still have the bottleneck that is your DSL/Cable ISP service. Why would anyone pay $169.99 just to have 200Mbps in their house? My Wi-Fi router does 54Mbps wireless and 100Mbps wired, which is good enough for me.
So, can anyone out there tell me why I might want to buy one of these?
GameNet is designed for use with XBOX, XBOX 360, Wii, PS2, and PS3.
By connecting one of the GameNet adapters to a broadband modem or computer and plugging it into a nearby power outlet, gamers can plug the second adapter into the Ethernet port of their game console in any room of their home. The adapters automatically configure to provide consumers with a secure and fast Internet connection. As rooms are rearranged, the adapters can be moved without harming the online connection.
GameNet is available starting today for $169.99. For more information and to purchase GameNet, visit Corinex at www.corinex.com/retail.
