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 have three of these, which I use because my wireless connection does not extend reliably to my second floor. I was using one for a blueray DVD player with internet connection for Netflix, etc, and suddenly in the middle of a show, I lost internet connection!

It might be worth 5 stars, but I am stingy with those.

  • 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.

worked fine

  • Summary: These worked great. Was happy to see some medium length cables included since most of mine are way too long or too short. No brainer install... plug them both in, plug one into your router, plug the other into your device/computer.

  • 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. I needed to move the HD Home Run upstairs because I couldn't get a strong enough signal for the tuner on the HD Home Run in the basement where my router...

Simply Works, but unknown security status

  • 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.
