If you're like most people, you don't have an Ethernet jack right next to your television - or a hot tub in the living room for that matter. And while having both would be splendid, the SlingLink can at least resolve one of those dilemmas.The SlingLink TURBO brings network connectivity to any electrical wall outlet, making it ideal for the modern living room. With four switched ports, it connects your Slingbox, game console, DVR, computer or anything with an Ethernet jack. And it's compatible with any home router.Just plug one SlingLink TURBO into the wall near your router, and plug in the other SlingLink TURBO wherever you have your Slingbox installed, and voila! You're connected to the Internet. However, if you're into that post-Apocalyptic look, with wires hanging throughout your house, or if you'd enjoy the company of an expensive technician sent to re-wire your home, then the SlingLink is probably not right for you.
