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. I installed the power line adapter and ran the internet directly to my desktop as well as a Netgear wireless router and the adapter works perfectly.

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 I experienced are due to the hardware or the powerlines in my building.

Glad I Purchased It!

  • 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. Everyone has a desktop in my home, 3 including myself and they're located in different rooms. This beat connecting the various computers via Wi-Fi any day.

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. I didn't push any buttons whatsoever. And, it passed through several circuits in the breaker box and THEN through over 100 feet of cheap extension cord, outdoors.

Works like a charm.

Adam D., Amazon

  • Summary: I hooked this up in a room about... 30 feet away from the router? and the signal is amazing. I'm using it for a security system so this does what I need it to do.

  • Summary: I have been using powerline networking for years. Started with Netgear devices back when they called it Home Plug and I believe they were 54Mbps. I love these "Nano" sized adapters and I am very happy with 200Mbps, not in any hurry to go to 500Mb. This is the second set of the Netgear Nano adapters I have purchased. They are plug and play. Nothing to it. The first pair I used to set up a powerline network for my brother from his house to an exterior building.

second computer adapter

Tracie Flack, Amazon

  • Summary: Worked really well, right out of the box. We got a second computer for my son's room for Christmas, and on Christmas day I was hooking it up. I took seconds, and I was connected to the internet.

Works Great

Antonia Porth, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: Solved my problem. Had a great blue ray, but when I moved I did not have a direct network connection and it was not wi-fi ready. This works by making your electrical outlet into an extension cord for you direct wire network connection - it works great!!

Functional and cost-effective

Stuart Oltman, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: If you have WiFI strength issues in your house due to long distances, concrete walls or floors, etc, I've found this wired method using ethernet cables to be the best solution, and this particular Netgear product works perfectly...provided you have no other brand of similar product installed in the house. That may seem common-sense to some, but it almost caused me to return the product.

Works well for Roku HD streaming

Richard, Amazon
2 October 2013
  • Summary: I have a wireless network and although the signal is strong it sometimes can be spotty. I have another older set of NetGear powerline adapters that I currently use for a dead spot in the house. I read the reviews and information provided by others and decided it may be what I need to solve the dropped Wi-Fi signal issue with my Roku (HD). I plugged it into the wall and connected the Roku with the supplied Cat5 cable. I set up the Roku to use the Ethernet connection.
