Works fine but such a hassle to install... tech supports is good

Teena, Amazon

  • Summary: I was excited to get this - we get a lot of rebuffering while streaming Netflix through one of our WiFi BluRay players due to poor signal strength, so, after reading the great reviews, I thought this would be the perfect solution. It solved the problem, but not without frustration.

Does what it should do

Eugene, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: It solves a major headache. You can avoid running cables throughout your house just to get internet in a place that your router can't reach. It gives a great range and works fast. Pairing can be a hassle, but it usually works pretty quickly after you figure out what you have to do.

Only supports 2.4 GHz and problem with Win8

A reviewer from Cocoa Beach, FL, Linksys
8 April 2013
  • Excerpt: I spent a lot of time with their tech support because at least when I purchased it, the software did not work with Windows 8. Also, it would be very nice if it supported 5 GHz. It has helped cover most of our condo with Wi-Fi.

Wireless is very limited

Jim Love, Amazon
22 February 2013
  • Summary: As a Powerline device, this brand and model work fine. Setup and connection is very easy. However, the range of the wireless is quite disappointing. It seems to be designed to broadcast to the room it is in, and little, if any, more.

Good, Affordable Option for Wifi Extension

Kevin, Amazon
2 February 2013
  • Summary: I'm not very tech savvy and had to spend about twenty minutes with online chat support (it's not plug and play). However, once we set it up and restarted the computer... voila, we had wifi in the farthest reaches of our house.

User Review

nzmsv, NCIX.com
7 July 2012
  • Summary: This is a kit that consists of an Ethernet-powerline adapter and a powerline Wireless N access point (the AP also has 1 Ethernet port). The AP is acts as a repeater: it extends your existing network, so you need to already have a router set up (the AP does not do NAT or DHCP).
  • Pros: Works as described, extends existing network
  • Cons: Configuration is awkward

Sencillez y calidad pero con un problemilla

oscar, amazon.es
21 November 2013
  • Summary: El producto se compone de 2 equipos. Uno directo al router y el emisor final. La configuración es sencilla siempre y cuando la linea eléctrica sea el mismo punto. Es decir que si apagas un diferencial y se apagan todas las luces y enchufes lo coloques en ella. Esto es común a todos los PLC.
