Excellent product. Want to secure the network after it's set up? Read my review

Summary: Yes, I'll admit, it was a pain setting this up. Here's the explanation: It IS plug&play, all you have to do is plug in the first box into your router, and then the second box into another outlet anywhere in your house (and it DOES work on a power strip and a transformer), I know because I use this...
Summary: I bought this to expand my current verizon wireless network to cover the house from the basement (where router is located) to my son's room which is on the second story. To just plug in two devices and the software on his pc and to have his reception go from 1 bar to five bars was great!
Summary: I was hesitant but chose to go with the product. I've had a lot of WIFI connectivity issues in my house and was about to lose hope. This device is like having the actual WIFI router right next to your computer. It was a very easy install. [....]
Summary: I found this a little harder to set up than I expected. The webpage for changing the settings would not come up. I finally figured out that I had to run the utility (installed from the cd) first. Then I could change the settings (i.e. set security).
Summary: My wireless router has been pretty much useless. Buying this range extender kit was the most economical solution to my "can't get a signal" problem. Using this couldn't be simpler. One of the units has an outlet, one does not.
Summary: We had a four-year old "B" wireless/router in which the "wireless" part gave out. I spent hours trying to get a new, major-brand "G" wireless/router to work. So --- I then tried this Netgear Powerline system. The kit has two pieces, each about the size of a nitelite.
Works great - relatively easy set-up (for a techie).

Summary: I bought this item to extend my wireless network in my 3 level home so that my Playstation3 could talk to one of my XP computers, which funtions as a media server. I initially had a 70% signal at the Playstation which was inadequate to maintain a good enough connection to stream music/video.
Summary: Very easy to install, worked perfectly first time, no installation problems. However I understand this may be because I have a Netgear router -- I don't know if making it work with other brands would be as easy.
