Summary: These are a very good solution to getting your network or internet connection to parts of your house that wireless cant reach or isn't practical for your needs. There is little to no loss of speed from one end to the other.
Summary: Internet, wireless or otherwise, can be a patchy, difficult proposition. I've used this item in several different contexts successfully. If you don't have an internet jack in a particular room, but need one, this can get that for you.
Summary: I'd been using a wireless N bridge setup to connect a smart TV, media player and PS3 to my FIOS network for the purpose of Netflix and video streaming. While it worked OK, there would be episodes where the streaming would be interrupted when the kitchen microwave would be used since it interferes...
Summary: I haven't tried this unit in "real service" yet but did unbox it and did some speed testing. With two macintoshes (a Powerbook G4 running Tiger and a Macbook running Snow Leopard), I measured speeds using iperf, first using a direct CAT5 cable running between them, then with the pair of MCAB1001's...
Summary: I bought the Netgear MCAB1001 because I didn't want the router supplied with my Verizon FiOS internet, the ActionTec MI424WR. Verizon configures their routers with a custom firmware that maintains at least one administration backdoor into the device (on port 4567) and explicitly forbids you from...
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.
Summary: I run a computer repair service and have used these in multiple installations to connect computers and other devices to a FIOS based network. Setup is easy: -Use the included CD to load the control software.
Summary: Purchased this product to eliminate a cable running from my office to the living room TV. Everything about it has been great so far. The setup was very simple, plug in the first unit to the coax and the ethernet, plug in the second unit to the coax and bam, internet connectivity over the coax.
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

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.
