It extended my network but it disrupted my existing wireless network

Seth C., Newegg
5 March 2015
  • Summary: I can't use this now and since it is defective I need to pay to have it shipped back....
  • Pros: When it was connected on the same circuit the speed and latency was great. Easy to setup. I was able to stream 1080p at 60fps to my tablet using Limelight for gaming downstairs.
  • Cons: When it was plugged in with the same room as my wireless access point it would start dropping signal. I tried two different access points since I thought maybe there was some bad shielding in my PoE AP but both had issues. It wasn't until these things were removed and all my equipment was reboote...

Not Possible

Paul B., Newegg
21 February 2015
  • Summary: How can this be advertised as having 200Mbps speeds when the LAN connection is 100Mbps???? In any case, when connecting these next to each other on the same circuit (ideal scanario) I only got half the transfer rate of a direct connection.
  • Pros: Not sure there are any unless wireless is absolutely not an option...
  • Cons: Slow, even side by side... REALLY slow when on a different circuit (same panel)

2 Mbps - all I could get from it

Maksym O., Newegg
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Worthless.
  • Pros: Worked right out of the box.
  • Cons: 200 Mbps? Seriously? Real speed was 2 Mbps max, when connected to outlets that are close enough to each other. When directly connected to the router, I got 17 Mbps download speed. Huge dfference.

It would be great solution if it's working ok

Anonymous, Newegg
2 October 2014
  • Summary: I tried restarting both devices, changing plug places, reinstalling firmware from Linksys website (it has only one available and its the same on the devices) and no solution at all.
  • Pros: Easy to install (plug&play) Low latency between PCs
  • Cons: Critical issue: Randomly lost connection (synchronicity lost?) Depend of the distance between devices, connection can drop 50% (or more), but that's ok: you still have 100 Mbps. The problem is its not a trusted solution if you have random disconnections: It can happen after 15 minutes or 4 hs (Do...

Eric, Amazon
29 August 2014
  • 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.

Don't buy this

Laszlo Neufeld, Amazon
27 July 2014
  • 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.

Don't Buy It

Thomas G., Newegg
4 March 2014
  • Summary: This should be stated in the specs so people don't waste time returning this. Why even make this item.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: According to Linksys, this does not work unless it is on the same circuit breaker as the item that attaches to the router. What are the odds that the remote room is on the same breaker....ZERO

Don't waste your money

Gregory D., Newegg
31 December 2013
  • 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 ...
