You could always run a really long ethernet cable inside some buried PVC pipe
From the research I did it didn't matter, you only had to be on the same phase(so technically, if two houses in a street were on the same phase they could use this networking). I hope it isn't an issue...

Cool, they are all in my budget(this is going to be a long term investment so I'm ready to pay a little bit for it). I'm curious though, why would it be the best purchase?

i tried all sorts of home networking options before i discovered something great.
the builder of my house used cat5e for all of the phone lines.

who uses a home phone these days?

wired up the house using the "phone lines"....
Um... a year or two? Nonetheless, using cat5 or cat6 cable is out of the question, I tried to make that clear.

It's from a brand that is well known for solid products and It supports gigabit ethernet at good speeds. I'm assuming you can't wait for 3 weeks (ETA on the tp-link) and that speed is important to you.
