You got that right The_berzerker and ultimate-Presence. I've never thought that it is possible but you know it's already there. I'm just thinking if there is a posibility of using it in LAN. Putting up a small home network and securing the LAN. I need to do alot of research about this stuff.
Thanks to all of you guys!!!!!
More power to Firewall team..
Re: Power Cable that can be use to transmit data

A concept of Networking over Power Line Exist and is also used in the cornes of our globe.. Its called as "Power- Line Networking " . Here some Infiormations about it.... Hope this helps
1. Power Line Networking works only over 110 Volts
2. The maximum speed of Power Line Networking is 14 Mbps
3. All devices under s GRID will be able to hear the data passing thru... Which means your neighbour & his neighbour and onnnn can hear & process your Data.
4. There also exist a Secuity mechanism in it... Its a Data Encryption.
5. There are many companies who still market such products.
I can confirm that this technology exists and works. For obvious reasons the electricity supply utilities would love to get onto this as a way to boost their revenues - have a look at
for example. But at present there is no widespread takeup, just a few kits available for networking within the home.
As to the security aspects of pushing data around your power lines, according to current information the system uses a certain level of encryption but basically ypou are right - your data could quite easily end up in someone else's house along the street
