  • Conclusion: Netgear's Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter Kit (XAVB101) offers a speedy, secure alternative to running CAT-5 wire throughout your home. We put this adapter through the ringer and it still ran cool and performed well.
  • Pros: Great performance. Runs cool and is easy to install. Simple LED troubleshooting system.
  • Cons: Encryption and configuration works only with Windows.

  • Summary: The Netgear XAVB101 should not be thought of as a replacement for traditional in-wall ethernet cabling. It should be seen as a means of reaching “the last mile.” What I mean is that it works well for getting ethernet out to areas of the house where you may not always need ethernet or where it would be impractical to run cabling. One such instance would be in a living room where you may have network enabled gaming consoles (PS3, Xbox 360, etc.).
