Summary: Wireless signal from router could not make it to this area of house. This PLWK400 power line kit did the trick. Installed it in outlet inside of house near camera. Works great. Plus, I also got better wireless coverage from this device for other rooms that only had less than ok coverage before...
Perfect for boosting your weak signal on the opposite end of your house of where your wireless router is located.

Summary: This was super easy to hook up. I have devices and equipment that require WiFi on the other end of my house and this perfectly helped my signal level. One of my devices is a WiFi thermostat and it requires a good WiFi signal to properly function.
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.
Summary: I needed something to help my new vizio co-star to establish a reliable connection. Before, youtube will stream but it kept downgrading the quality of the video. The play-on software couldn't even stream from my server because the wireless connection was too slow.
Summary: Like many other reviewers my unit is up in minutes but by default the network is insecure. Trying to use the software from the CD is useless (it does not run on Windows 8) plus the "password" in the back of the unit does not work.
Works fine but such a hassle to install... tech supports is good

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.
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.
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.
