Tut systems Longrun network over phone copper alternative?

hi all,

I have a client using a pair of Tut systems Longrun adapter (ie. http://www.amazon.com/Tut-Systems-LR2000T-LongRun-Adapter/dp/B00006B6W5) which allows extending a network over phone lines.  these were discontinued in 2007 and Motorola bought Tut Systems.  One of the adapters is dead and i'm unable to source a replacement.  Are there any similar products?

The customer runs a 12 apartment resort and when they had the building network cabled with cat5 to each apartment (many years after building construction) one apartment could not have cat5 run to it, so they installed these longrun adapters instead and used the copper telephone connection to the MDF to also run the LAN connection (i suppose similarly to ADSL but i think the adapters use a different technology).

Are there any similar cost effective products?  I know you can get an ADSL based system for local use within the building but this is just for a single room so an inexpensive solution is essential.

cheers
nathan

powerline network
COAX network (MoCA)
or most phone line has 2 pairs, you can try to make them in to RJ45 and test it.
