Summary: 1. The mac address & password label have been removed. 2. The bandwidth is extreme low & lossing packets. (about 2~3Mbps bandwidth which means you download speed will be around 200K/S.) I did test my TPlink single powerline, and it can give me full speed (30Mbps) under the same network environment.
Summary: Like some others have experienced, I got 2 PLS400 units instead of one PLE400 and one PLS400. However, both units were bad as I have another set PLS/PLE units to work with. Additionally, the serial number / password stickers were removed.
Summary: I bought the TP-LINK TL-PA211KIT some time ago, and have always been very happy. They were a breeze pair, and were very reliable. In the 22mo I have owned them, I have had a single glitch, where unplugging one for 5 seconds resolved the issue.
Pros: 1) expands by 4 ports, not one. 2) I got them on sale for $39.99
Cons: 1) No manual or any type of documentation. I normally don't even care about this, however since I ran into issues right from the get go it would have been nice. 2) They don't like to pair. I have in fact never been able to get them to pair with each other, and then only with with my existing set ...
Summary: i plugged, it didnt work. Called linksys, they said it doesnt work in different breaker circuit. I tried then both in the same room and worked as advertised, fast and no set up process. guess what?
Summary: Plain and simple - if the device you're trying to connect is on a different circuit breaker - do NOT buy this product, it won't work. Connect the devices - no network. Instant chatted with support and the person told me plain and simple - this device HAS to be on the same circuit or it won't work.
Summary: In closing this is the worst piece of junk I have ever purchased. Not only did it not work as promised, but it has also messed up my router, another piece of junk Linksys the E4200, but that is another story for another day.
Pros: It was on sale.
Cons: 1) This thing won't work if you have an existing power line connected. Okay that's understandable. 2) The speed from this is mediocre at best. I would get better speeds from my wireless before this was connected to the router. 3) It drains all the speed and leaves none for the wireless devices. 4...
Summary: Got this cause its suppose to be faster than wireless. I'm only getting 7 down 3 up versus 35 down and 6 up on wireless and I'm pretty close to the router. I had to return another power line kit by another manufacturer which didn't work at all and now this one is an expensive, sorrowful...
Pros: I can get a signal.
Cons: I'm getting much faster speed from my wireless..?
