TEK1, Amazon
19 March 2014

  • Summary: Took me about 15 minutes to set up. Worked as advertised. Followed the included instructions. Did not need to use the included Windows-only Setup CD software. Bought this to replace a power-line ethernet adapter (Netgear XAVB101). I also ran some speedtests for comparison purposes.

Works like a charm - even for VLANs

R. Atkins, Amazon
2 January 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this item to complete the installation of a roof top wireless internet service on a multi-unit, condo residential building. There was no possible way to bring down the requisite Ethernet line from the roof however, there were coax lines pre-installed for use with satellite dish antennas.

Great product with clear and simple setup instructions

Lyndon Washington, Amazon
31 December 2011
  • Summary: The MCAB1001 adapter kit turned up, well packaged. Opening the box revealed a single two-sided sheet of instructions, with informative step-by-step guides. I managed to add the first adapter in my office, where the cable modem is attached with a minimum amount of network downtime.
