The computing giant's new portfolio of digital home networking tools includes gateways for creating a PC and peripheral network using phone lines, Ethernet connections or 802.11b wireless networking tools.

HP's two new notebook PCs are part of its Pavilion line, targeted at consumers and small-business users. The zt1000 includes a 56Kbps modem and optional Bluetooth and embedded 802.11b capabilities.
Prices for the zt1000 range from $1,399 (£968) to $2,099, depending on options purchased, HP said. The company also debuted the new ze1110 laptop, one of HP's lowest-priced laptops, with a starting price of $1,099 after a mail-in rebate.
The new notebooks and home networking products are currently available in the US only through hpshopping.com.
