Summary: These damn things are amazing. They just work. No programming, no fussing and fighting. My PS3 is out of wireless range, so I hooked up the LAN using these adapters. Been using for a year now. Streaming Netflix, gaming, internet, YouTube, and streaming music from a local media server.
Summary: I have 2 story house there was no way for me to get cable to the second floor, wanted to see how good this will work, well it did just that, it works great, I have it in my finished basement to watch Netflix and in my office on the second floor.
Summary: While it is true that the box contains software to configure the devices with fixed IP address settings, my suggestion is don't bother. Plug one into the wall, near your router and connect its network jack to the router with a network cable.
Summary: decided to give these a go as my WD TV Live Streaming Media Players wi-fi wasnt able to get a stronge enough signal from the router thats located in the basement. This thing worked straight out of the box and has been amazing.
Summary: I used this to connect my slingbox which is not in the same room as my router. I previously used the sling link turbo to connect it via wireless. That connection was horrible, it would often drop and wouldn't display with high quality video .
Summary: only mistake I made was not to read instructions. I plugged the device in to a power strip which caused the device to fail. The instructions said not to do this. Once I plugged into the the wall directly it worked like a champ.
