Good alternative to running cables throughout your home.

  • Summary: I like the product. I did what the instructions said; I plugged one into an outlet, hooked a Cat5e cable from my modem to the device, and plugged the second device in my bedroom to my computer. The speeds are alright; I pay for the 105/20 package from comcast.

  • Summary: I needed to extend my wireless network, but a wireless extender with the extra hop was way too slow. I connected one of these directly to the router at my modem, the other in a room across the house where I attached an access point.

  • Summary: I bought this set-up as part of my on-going project to eliminate Cable. I first bought an HD Home Run network tuner to use my Mac Mini as a DVR.

  • Summary: I've been having trouble with a wireless connection for years trying to reposition devices for better reception, but I believe the general congestion with my neighborhoods air waves has been getting worse. I saw this product today and decided to give it a try. It worked rite out of the box.

Nice Product - Boosted Speed 4X Over Wireless G

D. Witkin, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: Although most of the reviews here were very positive, I was a bit skeptical about this product. I've used another product designed to work over power lines (i.e., X10 devices) and was disappointed that they seemed to work intermittently.

  • Summary: There are times that a wired LAN connection is preferable to Wi-Fi. Some examples are for streaming movies and for areas with borderline reception. It just so happens that our family room is the furthest area from the Wi-Fi access point.
