Good devices, but I've never seen them get more than 40mbps

Steve, Amazon
19 December 2014
  • Summary: This is a great way to get an Ethernet connection to an isolated location. I use these to connect non-wifi TVs so I can stream Netflix/Hulu etc. They work pretty good for that. I've used these in locations with relatively modern wiring and circuit breakers and I am never able to get much more than...

Works!

Daniel W., Newegg
13 December 2014
  • Summary: Not sure how this would work with mult devices.
  • Pros: Wasn't sure what to think of this device when I first was saw it, saw afew reviews saying it works fine and the couple that didn't. So I took a chance to see how it would do or if it would even work at all. But ya worked great, simple set-up got a great speed boots compared to my wireless card.
  • Cons: The signal strength goes up and down (green, to amber) don't really see a decrease in speed tho might be minor but might be a distance thing or wiring not sure but.

I'll stick with wifi, thanks.

Michael V. Kordus, Amazon
29 November 2014
  • Summary: From the second floor of my home, I did a speed test comparison against a Netgear Nighthawk router. When I went straight wifi, I was consistently getting 10 Mbps. When I hooked up the the Powerline Nano Adapter, I was barely getting half that, 3 to 4.8 Mbps.

Grow Your Network without Running CAT Cable or Wireless Annoyance.

Book Glutton, Amazon
21 November 2014
  • Summary: Many of us would like to use our computer in a certain room or area of the house, but it really is too expensive, or too difficult, or not practical to run Cat5/6 Cable to the location (drilling holes, going through walls, floors, ceilings, etc.).

... concrete walls in my house that unfortunately do a great job of blocking wireless signal

maswell, Amazon
20 October 2014
  • Summary: I got these to transcend the concrete walls in my house that unfortunately do a great job of blocking wireless signal. I hooked one up to the cable modem, and the other up to a wireless point on the other side of the house. So they work -- great right?

I have a Century Link modem with built in wireless wire router that sucks in a major way

Jeff, Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: These have worked incredibly well. I have a Century Link modem with built in wireless wire router that sucks in a major way. If CenturyLink didn't drop the internet altogether, the router would drop the connection at great frequency.

Would recommend as a more "dependable" alternative to wifi-only in an ...

TBT, Amazon
29 July 2014
  • Summary: The product works as advertised - to a point. I get 35 mbps on wireless devices (phone) yet the connection coming through the powerline adapter is maxing out at around 28 mpbs. I am still giving 4 stars because it does work, I don't "need" 100 mpbs, and I just can't know for sure if the limitations...

Glad I Purchased It!

J. Edwards "GuitarPlaya2000", Amazon
4 April 2014
  • Summary: At first, I was a bit apprehensive on purchasing this item, because I'm not sure if I have a noisey electrical line in my home. I just didn't feel like re-packaging the product and mailing it back, etc. But to my surprise, it worked like a charm.

WOWIE ZOWIE! It works great...

LL "LL", Amazon
1 April 2014
  • Summary: I have an outdoor ip camera 200 or more feet from the house which was wired with Rj45 and worked fine, until I ran over the cable with the lawnmower. New cable or take a chance on Powerline? I rolled the dice with Powerline. In short, the system worked great. Plug and play, literally.
