Summary: This really works and set up is easy. You need to plug into a wall outlet, not a power strip, apparently. Faster than my G wi-fi and doesn't degrade. Good for remote places in your house, old computers with ethernet only and streaming on playstation.
Holy Set-up Issues Batman! Once you clear that hurdle they're great!

Summary: I bought these after purchasing a different brand from Newegg. Plugged them in and they appeared to work right out of the box (which some of the packaging said they would do). It wasn't until I ran the "Setup Utility" that the fun really began.
Summary: I had some old Linksys powerline adapters that were going bad so I was looking for an opportunity to replace them with something new. I bought 3 of the TRENDnet, 2-packs (6 units) and have installed 4 units.
Excerpt: Straightforward to set up, needed s/w install to enter device passwords and network names to enable encryption. Sometimes I manually have to do ipconfig /release & ipconfig /renew on the remote Pc to get a connection.Saw approx. 14 Mbps sustained throughput by way of my electrical wires.
Excerpt: Plug it in - it works! As other people noted, on a 2 plug outlet, will slightly block the upper outlet ground. Function in a three floor constructing with 40 offices and elevator. Plugged 1 in the back tech room, into a 5Mb hub and into a surge protector powerstrip.
