Works really well while it works

DADE L., Newegg
13 March 2015
  • Summary: Mine probably just had something wrong with them - they were still super helpful and I do really like them otherwise.
  • Pros: I was able to get a LAN connection upstairs in my house which was super awesome. Things run really well and are a breeze to set up.
  • Cons: Sometimes disconnects for me. Probably once every hour or so. It really hurts my experience playing games as the outage normally kicks me off of whatever game I'm playing. I often end up just going back to WiFi.

Disconnects

Mathieu B., Newegg
26 September 2014
  • Summary: It may be due to some house appliances, but I couldn't find out which. Your own setup may greatly influence the performance. I got good performance otherwise. To avoid the same mistake I did: you need to plug powerlines in the wall outlet directly and not through a powerbar or the transfer rate will...
  • Pros: Very easy to setup
  • Cons: Frequent disconnects that lasts about 10 seconds when used intensively.

It's ok

DPR, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: Works most of the time. the signal will drop fairly regularly but then come back. The data throughput rate is slower than expected - though I suspect that's because of where I have the devices.

just in a little nook built into the wall that causes bad wifi) it is more stable connection then the wifi

C.O., Amazon
17 July 2014
  • Summary: For the location I'm using it (not far away at all, just in a little nook built into the wall that causes bad wifi) it is more stable connection then the wifi, however where my wifi gets 30+mbps in that location, this only puts through about 15.

Not quite as expected...

Linda S., Newegg
25 March 2014
  • Summary: As a long time Linksys fan, I own multiple products from repeaters to routers and adapters which I have used over the years. Earlier products seemed to be more reliable than those products of late.
  • Pros: Easy to install...push button pairing. Soft green indicator lights to confirm that they are paired.
  • Cons: No manual included in box, no software included, however, can dowload software from Linksys website. Has dropped connection many times in the time I have owned it, necessitating reset procedures frequently.

Not as fast as it says it is

Tahir B., Newegg
11 February 2014
  • Pros: A nice looking gadget. If you can't have a wireles in your home then this is pretty neat. Works right out of the box. Basically you have nothing to do. Just plug it in and it works.
  • Cons: It actually slows down my connection a lot and I ended up not using these. It should be at least faster than your wifi to actually make sense to use this.

Easy setup but far from advertised speeds.

Nathan R., Newegg
10 January 2014
  • Summary: These may work in a brand new apartment or in a new house but in my apartment I had absolutely no luck getting what I would call "good speeds for the money".
  • Pros: Super easy setup. It really couldn't get any simpler. Plug into wall and either hook it up to your router and your pc. Easy as that. Instantly recognized the other adapter in a couple rooms away.
  • Cons: Far below advertised speeds. I have the Linksys WMP600N on the same PC and my speeds have always been good but living in an apartment building it is starting to get cluttered with everyone having a wireless router. I wanted to try these out to see if I could get both stability and speed without h...

13 November 2013
  • Summary: The pros I listed were of a replacement unit after I did an RMA on it. My first one had extremely bad disconnection issues (approximately disconnects for 30sec every 30 minutes, even disconnected while talking to tech support once) which after going through Linksys tech support, allowed me to RMA...
  • Pros: Good speeds from different floors of the house. Easy to setup
  • Cons: See below.

does not play well with others

Alexander S., Newegg
6 October 2013
  • Summary: If your PowerlineAV network consists of Linksys only, it wight work without any problems - Mine consists of many brands (Zyxel 500, Tp-Link 200, trendnet 200) - they all work well together and recognize each other without any problems, and their utilities list/measure everything properly - no...
  • Pros: works (kind of)
  • Cons: - freezes occasionally (frequency depends on network position) - utility does not recognize other brands - other brands' utilities won't recognize it

Marshall L., Newegg
24 September 2013
  • Summary: I'd probably be much more happy if this actually got here on time.
  • Pros: Fast adapter, extra Ethernet cables.
  • Cons: SLOW Shipping. Paid extra to get it shipped faster yet it took longer than free shipping to get here.
