Summary: Didn't work well for me. Tried to use it to extend my network over the power line to a detached garage/workshop 50 ft from the house. Low bit rate data exchange, also couldn't access my iTunes library from the shop, my main purpose for using it.

Summary: This product works most of the time, but occasionally have to reboot one or both to get a connection to my network. Having said all of that, I am still OK with offering a 5 star, because this product has allowed me to use my network in other rooms which would not be possible, otherwise.
Summary: I was leery at first about these adapters but was happily surprised. The setup is easy and I get virtually the same through put speed through two of these, one connected to the router and the other connected to my laptop, as I do with the laptop directly connected to the cable modem.

Summary: I would give this product 4 stars if AMAZON didn't send me an "open box return" on the first try! This is now the 2nd time in 3 technology gear purchases where we have received obvious open boxed return items shipped out as new.
A nice implementation but don't give up of traditional Ethernet cabling just yet

Summary: Important context: Our house is fairly large so the intent of bringing in Powerline was to provide a high-speed and more stable alternative to 802.11n. Unfortunately our house has two electrical home runs -- effectively 2/3 of our house is on one set of runs and the remain 1/3 is on the other (a...
Summary: I was disappointed. I expected this to unit to provide higher point-to-point speed than the older 200mbps units I had been using for the last three years. The older product was slightly faster. The "500Mbps" refers to total network bandwidth, i.e.
