Telepone lines provide an already existing infrastructure in the home that can be utilized for broadband communications and home networking. A communications node can be connected to every telephone outlet in the house to provide a network through the telephone lines. However, most homes are not wired adequately to provide ubiquitous connections in the home. Some homes may only have one telephone outlet in the entire house. Therefore, the telephone line networking system is limited in coverage. One of the ways to increase the coverage and still use the telephone lines for networking is to combine the telephone network with either power line communications, wireless communications, or all three methods. This hybrid provides excellent coverage throughout the home and small office.
