Great alternative to stringing Ethernet wire to our family room!

Griff450, Amazon

  • Summary: Have been putting off for years a project to hard-wire Ethernet access to our family room smart TV, DVR’s, etc. With the greater throughput vs. Wifi, I was most pleased with this solution. Did have to find the best transmission fit with the source outlet for this signal but once I resolved that issue, this system has been perfect!

  • 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.

Simple, elegant and effective.

  • 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. This four port "switch" component worked perfectly with my already existing NetGear powerline devices.

Would recomend this over wireless for streaming video.

Joseph D Niffen, Amazon

  • 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. You may have to power up and down the systems a 2-3 times a year, but that takes about less than 3 minutes, depending their location.

It just works

James S., Newegg
27 November 2013
  • Summary: I was fairly skeptical that this would work, but having recently moved to a two-story house from an apartment, I needed some way to extend my network. After numerous failed attempts to fix my problems with different wifi antenna placements, I decided to give this a try. I am amazed at how well it works, and have recommended this to friends with similar issues.
  • Pros: Extremely easy to setup. 4-port adapter is great for connecting different appliances in entertainment center.
  • Cons: As others have mentioned, it runs hot. Make sure there's adequate ventilation around the units.

Similar to XAVB5001

Andrew M., Newegg
1 November 2013
  • Summary: We've had a pair of the single adapters running at home for over two years and they have worked great. A digital TV tuner box (HD Homerun Prime) in another room feeds up to 3 HD streams at once to our Windows Media Center PC for recording TV shows. We can browse the internet or download stuff at the same time as Media Center is recording those TV shows, no problems and no glitches.
  • Pros: The single white adapter with this Kit is XAV5001 which we have used successfully for 2 years. Can stream 2 x HD videos at the same time as VOIP (internet telephone by magicJack). Maintains stable connection (unless router or cable modem is interrupted).
  • Cons: It's warm to the touch so don't block airflow around it by pushing furniture up against it. If router or modem gets disconnected or powered off then back on you'll need to unplug and replug the powerline adapter so it can renew connection to the router.

Inexpensively provide church to church video conferencing

Joseph S., Newegg
28 October 2013
  • Summary: A very sophisticated appliance that can save a lot of money
  • Pros: Trivial setup for a single, Low security, point to point, connection
  • Cons: Must be used responsibly. In the absence of IEEE standards for wiring electric systems, must be tested before use.
