Wired internet without the hassle of trailing wires

Excerpt: "-When I bough this product- About a month ago I moved from the second floor bedroom to the loft, my existing wireless adapter worked okay but found the signal was a lot weaker than it was downstairs, I also had a slower connection so I struggle watching YouTube videos, I also had connection drop outs more often than I did while downstairs. -My Experience- I have owned a pair of these powerline adapters for just over a month and has been the best ...
Pros: Easy to set up, more range than standard wireless
Cons: short cable included, only one device for each powerline adapter
Conclusion: I got a pair of these and didn't need to pair them up they just worked out of the box. I don't need encryptions as I'm in a detached house. I did however use a cheap switch for my other pc's.The cheapest one I could get. Pat Keegan's advice is good though.
Conclusion: Used a pair of these to connect our router to a wireless access point at the rear of our house, so we could get WIFI in the kitchen & garden. Plugged them in, pressed the buttons and they just worked.
Conclusion: I picked up a set of these at the weekend from those helpful, yet surprisngly underpaid, folks at Novatech....:) They didn't work "right out of the box" as they'd have you believe. A little setting up was required. Nothing particularly difficult though. Here's a couple of tips if you're contemplating these as a replacement for a dodgy wireless link: Uninstall any management software for your old wireless card before starting.
Conclusion: Further to the previous review: I bought one of the single plugs recently. It was the same model and spec as the pair I originally reviewed. These continue to work so well that I've begun looking around the house for other things to hook up (I keep examining the wife while she's asleep for a likely USB connector - don't go there..:) The single plug is an easy expansion. I plugged it in, pressed "pair"....and it worked. Just like that.
