No support for OS X if it doesn’t work when you plug it in. Mine didn’t.

  • Summary: I purchased this for use in a small apartment so I could have a hardwire connection for a Linux PC without wireless that was in a different room (20 feet away) from the router. It connected initially but was unable to maintain that connection for more than 5 minutes.

  • Summary: These work so well. I made my basement into a mancave and play xbox online and use my laptop down there. Wifi would reach down there, but it was spotty. My wife already used these for her work computer (works at home as an IT consultant) so I figured they'd work fine for me as well.

Problem Solver

LA Lady, Amazon

  • Summary: This solved the problem of a router at one end of the house and a second computer at the other. I bought one about 5 years ago, and it eventually died. This newer version is slimmer and more compact. My computer has never been faster

Works well.

  • Summary: Works well. I have a wireless router on the first floor, and a desktop on the second. I ran the speed test at 4 different sites, with the wireless I got a consistent 12-13 mb, download and 1.19 upload. With the Powerline Nano, I'm getting 20-22mb download and the same 1.19 up.

  • Summary: Great solution for distributing fast Ethernet in a home. My wife complained about slow speed and unreliable connections using Wi-Fi. I purchased the Powerline 500 adapter kit and simply plugged them in. Instant satisfaction. They work flawlessly.

Set it and forget it.

rvb1976, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: We moved into a fairly new house that was wired for cable and ethernet when it was built. However, the ethernet was only run to the upstairs bedrooms and not to the first floor. We didn't want to arrange the living room with the TV situated where the cable jack was located.

These are great. They have saved me more than once

Anthony, Amazon

  • Summary: as a profession I install networks. When a client needs a piece of hardware installed tomorrow in a tight spot or atop of a stairwell surrounded by block and iron and drywall and you don't have the time to run cabling, well here is your solution. I've used them for temp and permanent installations.
