Plug and Play, Works Great!

Jacob T., Newegg
12 April 2015
  • Summary: I was really nervous about buying this because this is one of the type of products that no matter where you go there are serious amounts of bad reviews. But was very satisfied with this product and would have bought two when it was on sale if I would have known that!
  • Pros: Works immediately after setting it up. All I had to do was plug the router/modem in on one side at the back of the house and my HTPC in on the other side and works fast. Granted my internet at the house atm is really slow but i don't see a difference between wired/powerline!
  • Cons: None really, but I wish I could get a third power line plug for another device like it shows on the box. lol

Drop connection every few minutes

Xiao L., Newegg
3 April 2015
  • Summary: Do not waste money on DLink product, I have DLink IP Cam also, they are all junks.
  • Pros: easy to use, plug and play
  • Cons: Drop connection every few minutes. It is not compatible with ZyXel 500MBps powerline adapter. It only works for one day; it drops connection every few minutes. I had to buy another pair of ZyXel adapter to replace these 4 adapters. The utility software could not event detect the adapter even I pl...

Works perfectly everywhere

Robert S., Newegg
27 February 2015
  • Summary: I have an old house with lousy wiring. My expectations were low, but bought it on sale, so . . . Results are such that I couldn't expect more from this product.
  • Pros: Totally plug & play. Connected to router upstairs, back circuit. 2nd unit downstairs and will connect on front or back circuit. My Netgear WGR614 is probably dying - disconnects often, and only getting 12Mbs out of max 18 Mbs. With powerline attached, actually getting 20-22 Mbs - higher than I'm ...
  • Cons: So far zero.

Works, but not ideal

Jason C., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Summary: Bottom line is that this product works as you would expect. Simple setup with decent throughput. There is an issue where one of the units is emitting a high-pitched noise that can get very annoying. I contacted D-Link for an RMA and that entire process has been a nightmare.
  • Pros: - Convenient - Fast, easy setup
  • Cons: - Emits a high pitched sound

Great Solution

Herbert S., Newegg
9 February 2015
  • Pros: Was looking for solution to extend network connectivity in apartment. Bridging Wifi was not working consistently. So looked into Powerline. This is a great solution! Works flawlessly. Setup was simple as well. Great to extend wireline network reach where WIFI would otherwise be of low reach.
  • Cons: None to date.

works Great

Alan P., Newegg
3 January 2015
  • Summary: I should keep some of these sets when I have to find a way to get internet run for friends,
  • Pros: These have worked great connecting our living room to the office. I kinda wish it had gigabit ethernet but in reality, it's mostly used to allow for a remote access point, and for that it's more than enough. At the price it sure beats running cables.
  • Cons: No gigabit ethernet

AMAZING

Steven H., Newegg
31 December 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this for a long run out to an out door barn(about 300 feet from my house) to configure a security camera, and WiFi for my use. Once the weather breaks I will give it a shot.
  • Pros: Simple plug and play. I have one plugged in to the outlet next to my Verizon Fios router, and the other in a room off a sub panel in my house. The two detected each other in no time, and there was 0 latency. I pay for 50 megs down, and that is what I got!
  • Cons: none that I can see

I'm impressed

Sin T., Newegg
31 December 2014
  • Summary: I was a bit skeptical before setting up the powerline Ethernet network in my house. I was quickly won over by this pair of adapters as well as another pair of a different brand I purchased not long ago. These two pairs of adapters worked like a champ.
  • Pros: - Easy to set up - Stable with good throughput
  • Cons: None so far.
