Although wireless networks and connections are possibly the best invention ever, there are always two sides to the coin. Having to avoid additional house electrical wiring running along the floor and tripping someone up as well as additional and unsightly hacking to walls are some positive points. Some of its disadvantages however feature themselves in inaccessibility due to natural and artificial obstructions as well as invaders and hackers tapping into the air space.

To address the aforementioned, it seemed a logical move to consider running an Ethernet connection through existing electrical wiring. As power supplies one's residence or office with electrical energy, it can also function as a channel for data to be transported within the vicinity of the premise. This certainly reinforces the factor on security as well as increases the geography for network access. There is also practically no degradation in network strength as power is constantly switched on unless there is an interruption from the main supply.

Attach a special adapter to the modem or router to connect to the internet. This adapter is then plugged into the wall's power socket to set up the network via the location's electrical wire size. Depending on where the computers or peripheral devices are located, adapters of similar kind are then plugged into the closest power sockets on the walls and connected to these devices. Once everything is connected, a local area network is formed without the need for messy cable configurations, hubs and switches. In the event there is still need for a wireless network, one can be easily set up.

Alternatively, there is also the capability to utilize existing cables for Ethernet connection as conduits to power supplies. Similar benefits as above mentioned include no additional wiring as data and power run over the same physical infrastructure. It is recommended to check regional standards on power and data cabling to avoid untoward incidents such as burning out devices connected to the network, overheating cables, short circuits and fires.

Computer cables can be data cables used to move data between various components such as keyboard, CPU, monitor, printer, scanner and other multimedia systems. These power cable manufacturers enable high-speed data transfers within the input and output components of the computer.

A computer uses different kinds of cable to operate. It needs an AC power cable, a high-speed serial bus connector, an USB cable, a digital video cable, and a modem connector cable. A new PC comes packed with all these cables. These cables are also sold as a single commodity and are readily available in the market.

All types of cables used in a computer have different purposes. The ac armored cable is just an insulated conductor and gives power to the PC. The high-speed serial bus connector is a data cable used to transfer bits and bytes from the input devices to the output devices. USB cables are used to transfer data from other sources such as digital cameras, video recorders, mobile phones, mp3 devices etc. the digital video cable is used to transfer high resolution video contents from the computer to a TV. Modem connector cables are used to link the PC with Internet service providers for accessing the Web.
