Goes where ethernet cant and is just as solid and fast
18 January 2012
Summary: We needed to get one of our older model Xboxes working successfully as a WMC extender to stream TV upstairs from the HTPC. We tried the proprietary MS wireless N dongle but it didnt have the throughput, and we couldnt run ethernet to that room. I tried ZyXEL powerline router and adapter, but the router failed quickly and didnt hold connections well. I almost gave up on powerline solutions until I bought a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router to replace the ZyXEL.
Pros: Plug and play, runs solid and fast as ethernet so can use on WMC extenders and anything else
Cons: IMO pricing is high on all powerline stuff, but at least this model will not dissapoint
Summary: this product works and it works great no issue at all plug it in press the button and connects always remember to pair them up and stick with the same brand as you can get issues if you don't very well made good quality from tp link money well spent
