Would only have been useful in 2001 - before wireless internet

  • Summary: This is how this thing works: 1 unit gets plugged into the wall and into your wireless router or your modem. The other unit gets plugged into the wall in a different room and you have to use an ETHERNET CORD to connect your device to it. The only "wireless" thing about it is that the 2 units communicate wirelessly, but otherwise you have to plug everything else in. SO not worth it for the price!

  • Summary: Only getting about 80mbps between two outlets on the same circuit and about 25 feet apart vertically. It could just be the old wiring but I would think the short distance could do better with these.

I'm Happy if These Work for You - All I got was Worked!

Electronic Baggage, Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: Three hours of trying to setup is my limit. Bought these to replace a first gen Powerline adapter setup that I've used for years as an early adopter of the tech. I bought two kits for a total of four adapters to use on three outlets with one extra in case I wanted to get a signal in another room eventually. The initial setup with the utility was fine. The most frustrating part of the experience is that the adapters all found each other easily.

Poor connection over 20 feet of power cable

Rob Lenderman, Amazon

  • Summary: Maybe the connection is not poor, but when I attempt to copy the files from one end to the other, I get less then optimal speeds. Sometimes I can't even break 1 MBit. If you have a wireless option, I would recommend it over the powerline solution.
