  • Summary: The “Linksys PLWK400 Powerline AV Wireless Network Extender Kit” would not work at all for me. I fussed with it for a whole day. I paid attention to all instructions and suggestions. I used only wall outlets (not extension cords), tried different outlets around the house, etc. Nothing had absolutely any effect. I tried the Utility Setup, but it would not install from the CD. Received message: “Operation system needs Windows 7 SP1 or later“.

  • Summary: I bought these powerline adapters because I thought they were more reliable than wireless, big mistake there, you get optimal rates only at the right outlets you choose. Tried everything to improve their performance, including firmware updates and factory reset. I ended up with an adapter in another room and had to run a long ethernet wire through the door. I would say avoid these unless you are sure the adapters are working fine at the desired positioning.
  • Pros: Easy set-up
  • Cons: weak reception/transmission, needs positioning for optimal signal, poor wifi
