I may have received a dud.

Felix Ng, Amazon

  • Summary: This product has vastly improved my internet connection... somewhat. Previously I had a high-latency, wireless solution which was suitable for low-bandwidth browsing. Replacing it with powerline networking miraculously improved my connection... for a few days.

Works great

  • Summary: These are really amazing little devices. Our wireless router is in the office and there are areas in the house where we just didn't get a wireless signal. We also had a handful of devices we wanted to hardwire (to quickly download movies or other files).

These devices work well but the information you get about them is really confusing

  • Summary: First - Linksys or Cisco have three products with very similar names. I think these are the three versions: 1/ Box containing two different devices - one plugs into the wall AC and your router.

Meets my needs exceedingly well; installation/configuration process a bit nebulous

  • Summary: My situation: Our primary Wireless router was on the main floor. Signal strength worked tremendously well for the main floor and basement, however the signal strength in some upstairs areas is poor making it impossible to surf the web, stream videos, etc.

Works GREAT

A reviewer from Chicago, IL, Linksys
22 February 2014
  • Excerpt: After a change of modem/router by Comcast, my WiFi was super poor. I was advised by a Comcast installer about Linksys PLWK400. This item is GREAT. I now have a "hard wire" in my basement and great WiFi in the whole house. Only negative comment is I had to look online for directions to install.

Works great!

  • Summary: First I bought the Linksys RE1000 range extender. We had connectivity issues with iPad's, iPhone's, laptops, Blackberry's, etc. Basically anything that moves around the house while on WiFi. The RE1000 works as a proxy so your devices get a fake MAC address when connecting to it.

home electrical service wiring problems

iamsam1956 from Collierville, Tn, Linksys
28 December 2013
  • Excerpt: The product is great, performs as advertised. The installation doc was a little misleading in the area of 'wall outlet' usage and here is what you need to know, the device uses the 'common' side of your home's electrical wiring so you can use any outlet in your home that is wired to the same service...

Not for all situations

Mofo, Office Depot
7 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I hoped to extend my Wi-Fi range to a diffeent building on our lot. The device worked OK in the house, but could not reach the second building. The problem was apparently too many circuit breaker boxes to traverse. Other reviews had warned about this issue, but I tried it anyway.

Excellent 200Mbps adapters--don't waste your money on most 500Mbps on the market

J. Martin, Amazon
19 November 2013
  • Summary: UPDATED ON MARCH 3, 2014: I recently bumped up my internet speed and began running some speed tests to verify this. I was surprised to find out that the throughput over these powerline adapters had dropped by over 50% since I originally reviewed them.

Does Not Work With AFCI Circuit Breakers

Michael "Snowflake", Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: Easy to set-up, but constantly trips AFCI circuit breakers (arc fault). Apparently, this is a known problem, but I missed it.
