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. 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.
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.
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.
Summary: I have been a customer at Amazon since it first started and have bought hundreds and hundreds of items over the years, but I have never, until now, written a review. I absolutely have to write this one because this product has so exceeded my expectations. This is the first technology product I have ever acquired in my thirty years of being in the technology field that has worked flawlessly in the first ten seconds of use.
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.
Good for mixed environments and getting broadband out of the basement

Summary: Overall I am very happy with the Netgear XE102. I have two Macs (running OS X 10.2 and 10.3) and an old laptop running Win95. The Macs are in my second floor home office, the laptop is in the family room, the cable modem and router are in the basement. (The cable company offered "free installation" of broadband service; this turned out to mean "we'll hook up a cable modem at the point where our cable enters your house, and if that turns out to be the basement and you...
