Not a good idea if you already have reasonably good wireless
1 week ago
Summary: If you already have reasonably good wireless coverage, don't get these adapters. Unless they are close together on the same circuit, transfer rates will not be much if any better than most wireless signal transfer rates. And if they are close enough and on the same circuit, you could probably just run an Ethernet cable.

Summary: I am a high speed internet services provider, and I just completed an installation on a large 8500 square ft authentic, certified castle and was not able to run CAT-5e cable throughout the home. The walls were solid stone, and was constructed over 25 years ago. The home was not wired for CATV, or CAT-5e cable, so we could not run CAT-5e cable at all. So, we purchased the Netgear Powerline 500 Nano adapter kit and it worked just as Netgear said it would.
Good speed, connectivity between the two Powerline Adapters seems good so far

Summary: I replaced an earlier model Netgear Powerline set with these new ones. The earlier model worked great for two years and hen suddenly they could not "talk" to each other so the computer could not get an Ethernet connection when plugged in to it. This new set is faster than the earlier model and so far connectivity seems to be excellent.
Summary: This starter kit is all you need to move your Wi-Fi from point A to point B in any home. It is an amazingly fast set-up, you will be streaming in less than 5 minutes, and drop out rates are history! Well worth the price!
Summary: Outstanding product. Quadrupled my bandwidth. I would also recommend checking that you have a gigabit router. I did that improved my bandwidth even further. The only issue with the device is that sometimes it has to unplugged to 'resync' with the other end.
Summary: I had used a couple of Netgear 200Mbps powerline adapters in my previous home with great success and so decided to give these a shot. I'm using these in a home built in 1968 going from the family room to one of the spare bedrooms one floor above. The status indicator LEDs indicate a perfect connection most of the time, but now and again degrade to the middle of road indication for connection quality.
Summary: Works great. I've been using it for a couple of months now and I haven't had any issue with it losing connection. I am using it on outlets that are on the same circuit though, which is supposed to make a fair amount of difference.
Summary: I've ordered the refurbished version of this set twice now and each time they have worked flawlessly. Considering the refurbs were about half off it makes for a great deal. You don't get the original box and the original manual but who cares. Just go to the Netgear website for it. Just make sure you upgrade the firmware after setting it up. Obviously the speed you get will depend on how old the electrical wiring is in your house and the speed of the connected devices.
I recommend this as a way to extend an internet connection without having to run wires.

Summary: I sent this to my son, who had a 200 Mbps adapter. It immediately sped up his connection and installed easily without problem. I recommend this as a way to extend an internet connection without having to run wires.
Summary: I needed to connect a computer to the network from another room, and these worked great! Took me only a few minutes to plug them in and get them operating. I have been using them for several months now, and they continue to work very well.
