WILL NOT WORK UNLESS IT IS CONNECTED TO SAME CIRCUIT BREAKER

John E. Garnache, Amazon

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

Harlan, Amazon
18 October 2013
  • 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.

LONG LASTING

Adriano German "Wolfchants", Amazon
31 August 2011
  • 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. THE ONLY THING I DON'T LIKE IS THAT THEY DON'T SELL THIS AS A PAIR.THE OTHER THING IS YOU CAN'T REALLY TELL WHEN THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT WHEN IT GOES BAD.

They work well but do not last

Nick Damato, Amazon
13 April 2009
  • Summary: These work well but seem to burn out fast. I bought a set of these about two years ago and it worked really well at first but died after about 10 months. So, I got a second new pair and that pair just died after about 14 months. When they die they do it gradually over about a month. At first performance lags, then you get inexplicable drop-outs that are intermittent. It will drop out maybe once per day.

Simple, Easy and it works!

R. Sung "pkc", Amazon
15 March 2009
  • Summary: I've been looking for a way to put my network printer onto my home network and found this tool. My printer didn't come w/ wireless so I thought my only options were either really really long cable or an ethernet to wireless bridge (most of which have terrible or inconsistent reviews). Then I found this. Within a minute I had my printer networked. Some additional time to setup encryption (so my annoying neighbors cannot snoop into my network) and I was good to go.

This is an awsome product and excellent Netgear's Customer Service

f117b2, Amazon
4 November 2008
  • Summary: Update on 02/22/2006. I have 3 of them. One was bought in May 2005. It stopped working on Feb. 10 2006. I called Netgear Customer Service and asked for a replacement. The thing has 3 year warranty. They just asked me to send the bad one back and would send a new one back to me. I received the new one on 02/21/2006. Thank you Netgear, and keep up the good job. One thing is important, don't forget to register your product.

Not great, not bad

SL "pismo10", Amazon
4 November 2008
  • Summary: It works (which means it is perfect in the minds of many because so much networking equipment is very fickle) but thats not really enough to give it 5 stars. So I plugged it in, it worked, it is 1/3rd the speed of a wired connection and it only worked at some outlets depending on which subpanel, location, etc I was on. It in no way should be considered a replacement for a hard wired connection but it is a fairly good substitute.

Works as Advertised, a Few Points to Consider

R. Williams "code slubber", Amazon
4 November 2008
  • Summary: After making a music room in my house that had no windows and sound baffling insulation, it was impossible to get a wireless signal in. Got these and was up and running in no time. Connection is fantastic, always full strength, top speed. However, on a couple of occasions, the adapter on the server side got unplugged and getting the network back up was a hassle. Sure it has to do with getting it to request IPs from the router.
