The SlingLink TURBO is a plug and play device. 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 you're done. You can also use it with any other device that needs to be connected to the Internet. This SlingLink Utility software adds security to your home network by limiting powerline network access. With it, you can decide which SlingLinks (and other HomePlug 1.0 compliant devices) are allowed on your network.
