These work great.

TEK1, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • 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.

Great for extending Ethernet for FIOS subscribers

Richard Park "Rick in LA", Amazon
27 March 2012
  • 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...

Simple, Easy to install, and fast, see speed test

AG "AG", Amazon

  • 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.

Great new product

Almightyrecht, Amazon

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.

  • Summary: I have 3 of these throughout my home. They are awesome. The LAN is fast which is what is needed for streaming movies all over the house like we do. They have been in service for over a year.

Good for internet

J. Set "Joshie B", Amazon
25 November 2011
  • Summary: Item is not as easy to setup as Netgear would have you believe(say its PnP). Followed instruction that came with it and had to spend over an hour with tech support to get it working. Totally backwards from directions, need several splitters for coax to cable box and modem.

E. Willis "superic", Amazon
23 November 2011
  • Summary: This Netgear coax adapter was easy to set up and get running. It ships with the latest firmware (as of 11/22/11). The instructions when you're setting this up for DSL use make it seem like you have to have a cable modem but you do not.

Works great if you don't want to run CAT5

Bart, Amazon
2 August 2011
  • Summary: If you are looking for a way to get a hardwire ethernet connection to a computer in another room without having to pull cable through walls, look no further. After reading many of the reviews here and elsewhere, and comparing it to ethernet over powerline, I decided this was the most fool-proof...
