Were you referring to HPNA? It has been arond for a while and is valid option. Your speed it greatly reduced compared to ethernet or USB connections. The truth be know, you generally have a 1.5 to 4 Mbs HSI connection. Most websites will not let you have more the 500kbs (.5Mbs). There are some exception but not enough to build you LAN around.
The standarsd (common) speed for HPNA is 1.0 Mbs. The new standard will be 10Mbs. Too much information to list here. Check out the link provided.http://www.hpna.com/
Edit for legend.
Mbs = Mega Bits per Second
MBs = Mega Byes per Second
1 Byte = 8 bits
MBs is 8x faster than Mbs. Just FYI
