Exactly what I needed to add an access point in my home
28 May 2015
Summary: My home has the cable coming in through the basement, which means if my modem and router are down there I get little to no wifi reception in other parts of my house. These allow me to have a second router acting as an access point upstairs in my living room, providing a strong signal throughout the...
Summary: The Powerline adapter worked great. I did have some problems with a dated CD disk but just downloaded the utility from the website, and it installed fine. My wife just loves the result. Her download speed jumped from 15 Mbps (wireless) to 75 Mbps (TrendNet).
Summary: Pro: Allows network connection via ethernet cable. More reliable than wifi. The built in electrical outlet is a plus. The LEDs are bright enough to see during the day. Con: I have to manually reset the adapters by pressing the reset switch in the tiny hole after every power failure.
Don't bother with passwords (they will not work) - you can setup your network without them.

Summary: Don't forget to secure your network by changing the encryption key a.k.a. network name, which are the same things in the context of these powerline adapters. If you are willing to rely on auto-generated encryption key by the device, then you don't even need to install the software utility that comes...
Summary: I love these adapters! They have performed flawlessly and are a breeze to setup. If you're looking to take advantage of wired connectivity when wireless won't simply do, these are a must for you!
our home's electrical system isn't the best so it may just be luck

Summary: Decent item, but it doesn't get near the speed as the last set of 200Mbps I got. In all fairness though, our home's electrical system isn't the best so it may just be luck. At the very least, the item is high quality in terms of construction and outlet placement.
Summary: I had one of seven month old Trendnet 200 units die after a power failure, and when I came for a replacement I found Tiger Direct had them on clearance for $27.99. $28 is a great deal for any 500 unit with pass through connections, since they used to sell for approximately $61 on Amazon.
Summary: Product works great and plug 'n play installation. No mess with network cables. Connects virtually everywhere at your home power line. Connections within seconds and one can enjoy the same speed like connected via real cables.
