Summary: just got off the phone with the poorest customer service you could imagine. Reason enough to not buy! Finally found out it will only work if the plugs are on the same circuit breaker! now tell me...what the f...good is that? how many houses have only ONE CIRCUIT BREAKER? LAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Older unit that works better than most newer units

Summary: I needed this older design Power Over Ethernet Module to replace a 4 year old item that failed. It self configures and you just plug it in. A lot of the newer ones require you to install software on your computer and to go through a setup procedure. Happy with unit.
Summary: NETGEAR XE102 IS PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD, YOU INSTALL THE SIMPLE SOFTWARE INTERFACE, PLUG THE TWO UNITS AND YOU'RE ON. I'VE HAD THIS FOR ROUGHLY 9 YEARS. SO IF YOU HAVE DOUBTS THIS IS A VERY GOOD UNIT.
Summary: I've had a pair of these for a long time and needed to expand my home network to the master bedroom (for a Roku box) and the other side of the den. The new - used, actually - units plugged in, synched up, and all done.
Summary: I'm able to establish connection using this device, but the speed is patchy, and worse, everytime i shutdown or suspend my laptop, I have to go to the originator plug and cycle the power, then go back to the other end of the house and do the same on the destination plug.
Summary: As far as I've seen, I get a great connection with fast speeds (note: I use this for XBOX LIVE). I've noticed some hiccups, altough that's probably just Comcast being Comcast. All in all, I recommend this item for those looking for a quick and easy bridge (it's plug and play).
Summary: This works ok, but not as well as hoped for. But be warned -- the SEE IT NOW video link from THIS product shows truly wireless adapters. This is NOT one of those so I'm not sure why Netgear would show those in a video for a non wireless adapter.
