Works, but not as advertised

Penna Guy, Amazon
21 June 2015
  • Summary: Before I got this, I was excited about the potential. I have a basement plus 2 floors. My router and modem are in the basement, while I work from my second floor study(which is probably 50-75ft max from the router).

Its ok in the same room, very slow in separate rooms

  • Summary: It is a good product, but it does not make miracles. The longest the distance between the 2 adapters, the slower the speed. If the adapter has to "travel" to the electrical switch box, then the speed will be really slow.

Buyer Beware

  • Summary: I mistakenly thought that this TP-LINK TL-PA511 KIT AV500 Powerline Gigabit Adapter Starter Kit, had wireless capabilities. But I was wrong, so I returned it. Based on all of the high ratings which have seen for this brand, I purchased the TP-Link TL WPA 4220 Wireless WyFY Adapter Kit from another...

I returned it.

  • Summary: It comes with 2 CAT5 cables. I have a gigabit network at home and I routinely transfer files between my computers at 100 MB/s (800 mbps). The one place I am missing such speed is the 2nd floor where the bedrooms are, and I was hoping that I could fix that problem with this device without having to...

  • Summary: Works well enough if you can't penetrate through WiFi or you have a device that must be direct ethernet. Definitely not faster than my Wifi

Does not live up to promise

ty, Amazon

  • Summary: First the good Setup is easy, plug in one, plug in the other and push the button on the first and then the second. It syncs quickly and to add more, repeat. For the most part they are reliable, only occasionally have I had to unplug and I'm not 100% sure if it was this things fault or not.

Works okay, but flaky performance

A. Ramallo, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I've been using this for about a month now, and when it works it works "okay". It definitely isn't as fast as straight ethernet, but it isn't slow either. Fortunately, it is able to achieve the maximum 30mbps speeds that my internet plan provides, so speed isn't exactly an issue for me (though your...

Does its job with a few noticeable flaws

Alex Pritchard, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: I bought these to avoid running cables through my apartment, which has an extremely inconveniently located coax port. They definitely work at a basic level. I have three main complaints about them: 1. I was unable to achieve a high quality signal between them.

Not compatible with GFI circuits...

M. Lesak, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • Summary: Based on the reviews, I know the product works, just not for my home. I live in a newer home and most of the outlets in the house are GFI based on building codes. After contacting support due to poor performance, I found the following info on their website: http://www.tp-link.us/faq-901.html...

Ottima l'idea, non il prodotto.

Alessia00Ma, Ciao

  • Summary: Un paio di anni fa, incuriosita da una pubblicità su amazon che indicava un'offerta di questo apparecchio, ho deciso di provarlo, anche perché, avendo in casa più computer, necessitavo di collegarli tutti tramite cavo ethernet, per evitare le onde dannose del Wi-Fi.
