Summary: It works great with my Netgear XAVB5004 and two XAVB5602. I looked for a second XAVB5004 for months since I didn't want to fill my router with powerline adapters. I saw a used Netgear XAVB5004 on Amazon for over $300. The D-Link AV 500 was $88, new. The D-Link AV 500 is a 4-Port Powerline Adapter and integrated perfectly with my two types of Netgear Powerline Adapters. Only one port on my router is used for these four powerline adapters and this works for me.
Good solution but will not achieve the advertised speeds

Summary: This is a good alternative to wireless. I am concerned about security and wanted to physically attach all my devices. While this does work, it does not achieve the desired speeds as advertised. I think the only way this is possible is if all of your circuits are on the same run. It it goes through a circuit box then the speed is greatly decreased.
Summary: Seriously D-Link this product, the documentation and usability is disgraceful. As CEO you should be ashamed that you would oversee such rubbish leaving your company. After 6 hours I have given up. If you read the reviews you will understand customer frustrations. I know some people are writing good reviews but I think potential purchasers should understand the the people who get these things working are clever geeks, meant as a compliment guys, as am I.
Excerpt: This product (and all the D-Link power line adapters) will only work for outlets on the same electrical circuit in your home. I'm not sure why they don't tell you that. How many homes have all the outlets on the same circuit? My guess is none that are built to code. If you're thinking you're going to create a whole house network with this product, think again. You're not. I verified this after waiting 1/2 hour on hold for D-Link tech support.
Summary: This switch is unable to get Internet connected even the device is just out from box. I get a replacement from Amazon but the result is the same. There is no trouble shooting procedure included inside the package.
