good solution but will not achieve the advertised speed.

  • Summary: This is a good alternative to wireless. I am concerned about security and wanted to physically attach all my devices. While this does work, it does not achieve the desired speeds as advertised. I think the only way this is possible is if all of your circuits are on the same run. It it goes through a circuit box then the speed is greatly decreased.

Less than I was expecting

  • Summary: I ordered this product to get increased bandwidth to a part of my house that wireless was having trouble with. First of all, there is no Mac software accompanying the package. Oh well, I dig up my old Windows PC and use that. I could not get the software to work on the PC. There is very little troubleshooting info on what the problem might be. I plugged in the units and was able to push the correct buttons on the units to establish a private key for encryption.

Wow! Worse than useless

  • Summary: So, according to D-Link customer support, the "only problem" with these devices is that they have to be "on the same circuit" to connect. That's the "only problem", huh? And were there any other problems at the play, Mrs Lincoln? My house is about 3,000 sq ft and must have 15 separate circuits. The odds of any two rooms being on the same one are...long. In any decent-sized house, what are the chances that two arbitrary rooms will share the breaker? I mean, really?

Regretfully, I Have to Return It

  • Summary: Two problems on my wireless home network are a personal PC at great distance from the Access Point/Router [AP] and a heavy resource user in the form of a security DVR. After reading reviews re the PowerLine technology for extending an Ethernet circuit I bought this D-Link Starter Kit that was advertised to get up to 500 Mbps for devices connected to a router by bridging the distance through the house wiring.

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Fungerar klockrent, bara postivt att säga. Har ett mindre hus med ganska nydragen el, men det skiljer sig mycket prestandamässigt beroende på i vilket uttag man kopplar in enheterna. Som jag kör nu så får jag ut ca 100 Mbit vilket är mycket bra. Kopierar filer i omkring 12-13MB/s över nätverket. Garanterat en av de bättre på marknaden, dock så kan jag tycka att man borde kunna få ut ännu högre hastighet.
