Summary: Set up was incredibly easy - the 2 adapter set comes with 2 5' Ethernet cables which were each long enough for my purposes. Plugged them in and have wired internet service to my laptop. Worked also to plug the ethernet right into the back of my LCD television.
Summary: I used wireless routers for years. For one thing, wireless range is only "not quite" to the end of my house and the gargage is out of the question. Signals are weaker the farther away you get. With several computers in the house and an xbox to boot,I was always looking for a way to make it better. I have bought 3 routers. The last one was the latest and greatest router. No change.
Summary: The item(s) were easily installed and worked with no problem. Unfortunately, I had recently upgraded my Comcast cable system from the older Motorola to the new "X1" system. As soon as I plugged-in the TrendNet adapters, my X1 system acted-up. As it happens, Comcast is having all sorts of problems with it anyway, but there's no doubt that the Trendnet adapters added to the problems.
Incredible Way 2 Connect your Non-Wireless Devices
17 October 2013
Summary: I bought this kit for thirty dollars on special. I've had powerline adapters in the past and these really outperform the original versions. My internet download speed from my provider is 12 Mbs and doing a speed test through these devices maintains the speed. Highly recommended over wireless in many applications. Very reliable.
Summary: I have two of these units as well as two TPL-303E's. They worked fine for months, but then one of the 303E's failed to connect to the network. I then made the mistake of going to the TRENDET website, and downloading the Powerline Utility so I could add it manually, as the user manual instructed. By carefully following the instructions in the user manual, I ended up disabling every single Powerline device and trashing my network.
Summary: Setup the password and used the devices just for printing to a non-wireless printer instead of getting a printserver or leaving my computer on all the time for that service. Worked well. Good enough for printing and scanning. Problem is when I moved plugged the units in and they found each other fine but the computers could find the printer. Pinging the printer (same IP address as before) wouldn't work.
Summary: I bought two sets of these to replace an old Netgear PowerLine system that is no longer supported or compatible with the new standard protocol. It's as plug-and-play as it gets-- I didn't have any issues with these and the speeds are very close to advertised.
