Who Would Ship Only 1 of These?!

  • Summary: I received the package on schedule, but there was only ONE Powerline in the generic brown box! When the webpage said "1 for $$, 2 for $$" it seemed obvious you're buying 1 PAIR, since obviously it takes a minimum of TWO of these to even work in the first place. Even the picture shows two of them. Someone is apparently opening the Netgear package, splitting the contents and selling for double the price.

easy setup, but poor transfer speed in my house with central AC

  • Summary: One of my IT friend highly recommended this stuff to me, as he was getting consistent 100mbps over powerline in HIS house and could watch DVD (even Blurays) without any lag. Well, that's not the case in MY house which is built in 1970s. My house is a pretty typical single family ~2,000 sq ft in size. The two adapters were located 1 upstairs and 1 downstairs with about 100feet or so in distance between them. Setup was easy.
