of no benefit

  • Summary: Signal strength stayed the same after installing. Was hoping this would be of benefit, but I only get 53% signal strength with or without it.

  • Summary: The device is great when it works. I am able to connect my smart Tv to the internet. The issue that I have with it is that the network 4 port adapter does not have any network connectivity when it comes out of its power saving mode.

If you can't dedicate an entire outlet, don't go powerline

  • Summary: I couldn't dedicate an outlet (plug nothing into the same outlet as either of the units) thus, I couldn't get over 6-11Mbps. If this represents your situation, then power-line isn't for you.

It's OK while connected.

  • 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.

Generator owners beware!

Supermuncher, Amazon
19 November 2012
  • Summary: If you have a standby generator beware of which circuits are connected to that panel. I wanted to consolidate some of my gear and thought hey lets remove some of the routers and run straight from the line coming into the house to the routers.

When it works, it's fine.

J. Georges, Amazon
11 November 2012
  • Summary: The issue I'm having is that the XAVB5004 occasionally disconnects from the network, It has happened twice during the last 7 days since I set it up. Netgear tech support has proven totally useless.
