Summary: I have a 25mb dsl line and the router is upstairs in my house. My PS3 is downstairs and via wifi I normally get download speed ~5mb and upload of 700k. Hooked this up and it basically doubled my d/l speed to about 9.7mb. Gave it 4 stars only because I am selfish. I can go to speedtest.net on my computer upstairs and I get ~25mb d/l speed connect and via wifi. While I never have gotten over 15mbps on my PS3, my computer downstairs has given me the 25mb d/l via wifi.
Summary: After multiple attempts to synch, i resorted to reading the instruction manual... DOH! After I did what it said, I synched up immediately and all is well - I was running around 120Mbps. All four devices (BD Player, Apple TV, SMART TV and AV AMP) all work fine, and now I get no lag at all for Netflix or Amazon. The only reason for the dropped star, is that I cannot get more than 120Mbps no matter what I try or which power sockets I plug into.
Summary: So what they never tell you about this product, not anywhere that I could find at least, is that the more things plugged into that circuit around your home (not just more network adapters, just anything period), the worse the performance. I had to go around my home unplugging everything that wasn't absolutely necessary to get this thing to 198Mbps. With everything in my home left as normal, I get between 95Mbps - 130Mbps.
Ideal way to get internet connectivity around the house

Summary: I have several Directiv units using these adapters to connect to the internet for downloading content. They are simple and effective. I have been using them about two months without any problems whatsoever. I had more trouble getting internet to my house than I've had getting throughout my house.. Follow up: With just under a year of use the single unit feeding the internet into the powerline failed and this 4 plug unit is losing connectivity more frequently.
Summary: I purchased this along with a TPL-402E2K. I had issues with one of the TPL-402E's but got resolved through TRENDnet. This adapter installed in seconds - less time than opening the package. It's a solid items that delivers. I totally recommend. I may get one of the wireless units that allows me to plug one item in wired while providing access point... All interactions with TRENDnet were excellent.
Summary: I purchased this product thinking it included both transmitter and receiver as do all their products. The description did not say just receiver included so I feel deceived but I could have been smarter. Do not purchase this product by itself, worthless. Had i known that I had to spend another $70 to get a receiver, I would not have purchased as first item.
Summary: It took some time before being able to connect devices. All technical support comes from overseas and many of the staff were poorly trained. After all the units I purchased were programmed correctly, they worked fine. They need to improve the manual.
