From what I have read this seems to work better in newer houses

M. Parsons "M", Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Have not been able to get these to work. I found via google it can vary by your houses wiring. I live in a house built in 1968 with aluminum wiring. I am switching over to copper pigtails soon, but I don't know if that will make any difference.

Barely functional

Rudy, Amazon

  • Summary: This thing worked ok, the internet speeds were a little slow but may be because of my home wiring. However, they function erratically. Sometimes they would both sleep, most of the time only one would sleep (power saving mode) at any given time.

Angelo F., Newegg

  • Cons: After 2-3 weeks of usage, the unit connected to the modem stopped working. No lights whatsoever.

Alan M., Newegg

  • Summary: I bought this kit for use in a remote farm. I followed the setup instructions to a "T." It saw both devices when connected to a router and to a 2nd laptop. However, neither allowed connection to the internet despite using the cables provided with the kit and Cat5e from the router to a computer.
