Summary: From poor wireless in our back bedroom to near-cabled connection speed. Very nice. Unfortunately, the labeling didn't make it clear that this was the 200, not the 500 version of the product. Would have been better if I'd have known I wasn't get top of the line.
Summary: I don't know how exciting a review can be that is supposed to emulate a cable. The good news is that it works and the 4 port switch on is particularly handy. The tool to configure encryption isn't amazing, but it works for OS X so that is plus that many other ones don't have
Summary: Very simple to use. Plug one part of the device into your internet router and then plug the other part of the device into the electrical outlet near the items you want to hook up to your network.
Summary: I have only had this for a few days, but hookup is a breeze (took about 5 minutes from openning the box to fishing wires under my furniture behind the TV), and it is much faster than wireless G.

Summary: It wasn't as simple as I had hoped. The easiest plugs to use gave me 31 MBPS, which was much less than I had hoped. Using an extension cord, I checked all the plugs in the Home Theater, and the best was 41 MBPS, but that was on the other side of the room from my gear.
Summary: The Netgear XAVB1004 Home Theater connection kit is a Homeplug device that allows you to access your home network through your power line. Simply plug the gray brick into the wall, attach your modem or router to it, plug the switch into another power outlet and you have an internet connection at...
Home theater enthusiasts, a product like this is a must

Summary: If your household is like mine several of my home theater components can connect to the internet with wires. The problem is that my modem and router are in a different room and running cable to the entertainment center could be a problem in your house.
Summary: I did not want another wireless product in my home. I thought about running a long wire from where my router is to the TV area but that would have included making some holes and minor construction. An IT guy at worked suggested this because he uses the same product.
Summary: Wanted to provide internet access to my new TV using something other than another wireless device - though there was a proprietary USB wireless-N link available for it. I liked the expandability that this package provides if we add other devices (PS3, X-Box, BluRay, etc..
