What is a PLK300? Linksys does not mention it on this site. I can find online vendors who list the product, but no pictures and no specs. Also, I cannot find anyone who has reviewed this product. Maybe PLK300 is just a typo.
Are you perhaps looking for a PLK200? As best I can tell, this is the same as two PLE200 devices.
Both the PLK200 and the PLE200 are listed as "in stock" at CDW.com

I just recently bought the PLK200 kit, so when I stumbled across this, I returned them and bought the PLK300. The kit includes a PLE300 1-port adapter and a PLS300 4-port adapter. The biggest change with these does in fact seem to be the form factor - but it is a nice change. It feels more solid, plugs in via cord, and seems to be less hot. One interesting thing for a Linksys product - this actually didn't come with any software. Just a CD with the manual. So all there really was to do was plug it in and watch it work. I noticed the old PLE200 software does detect them. Security is setup using a simple connect button.
Speed seems to be pretty much the same as the PLE200's - maybe incrementally faster, but that could just be me being wishful (mine is clocking at ~145 Mbs - data transfers at about 5 MB/s). It is nice having a 4-port switch at the other end of the connection. I'm hoping that soon they come out with the stand-alone PLS300 so I can expand to one other location.
