Summary: After trying get my wireless working right across the house and upstairs I just got frustrated with drop outs! Now that I have this guy setup and 2 other power line 500's in other rooms I have yet to have any problems and get 1g throughout the house!
Summary: I have several 200 units. Some would work with this 500 unit others will not. Can't figure it out. Can't really see any speed increase with this 500 setup. A bit disappointed. It works, but not much faster.
Summary: I have had this unit for three weeks. It works well when it's connected. The problem is that I have to recycle the power quite often, even though all the three LEDs are lit solid, it just won't connect.
Summary: I got the 200 mbps adapter kit last year and wanted to upgrade to the 500 mbps this year. I replaced the old equipment with the new 500 mbps and it works great. Our LAN speed is improved and stable.
Summary: These powerline systems have improved a great deal over the years. The powerline wireless untis that I first encountered, years ago, were very difficult to set up. Now they are virtually plug-N-Play.
Would recomend this over wireless for streaming video.

Summary: I have two systems and use the one base and two hubs. I use this to connect my DVR to the internet and to view DVR recordings from other rooms. Much better service than wireless and easier to setup and more secure.
