Summary: The only way I could get them to work is to plug both units into the same socket. I could not even get them to work with a socket that was 8' feet away let alone on the other side of the house.
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.
Summary: I ordered this item upon advice from a customer support person at Cisco. I followed the directions and found that the signal from the PLW was too weak to be any use. The customer service told me that all of the adapters need to be on the same electrical circuit for it to work efficiently.
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.
Pros: Easy set-up
Cons: weak reception/transmission, needs positioning for optimal signal, poor wifi
Summary: Installed easily, functioned briefly. The main issue was that I could no longer connect to my networked PS3. I contacted Linksys and we quickly determined an IP conflict. I was then told and this is a direct quote from the Live Chat support from Jeffrey (18183) to All Participants: I am very sorry...
