Summary: Love Trendnet. The adapter just needs to be plugged into an outlet (directly - NOT into extension cable) and voila - you have wired internet. Superfast and works fantastic in all three levels of my 2600 sqft house. The adapter is on the highest level of my house and delivers superfast internet into all corners of my house.
Summary: I have struggled with other solutions (wireless signal repeaters, strategically placed wireless access points) and this was the last attempt before crawling under the house and wiring rooms up to 100 feet away. Was a bit skeptical because of older home with several electrical subpanels between Point A and Point B. But the Trendnet was fabulous, couldn't be easier to set up, and worked (and has worked) flawlessly since installation. Very fast speeds ...
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: Had a problem with my new apartment that the wireless signal wouldn't reach too far as was quite spotty...this really effected the playback of Netflix/Amazon Prime on my TVs. I was debating with getting an extender or trying these out and I decided to give these a try as I wasn't sure how great of a signal I would get even with the extender.
Summary: I already had a pair of Trendnet powerline adapter's in use at my home. I needed to add access to another area and found that Amazon was selling this 4 port unit for less than a single port for some reason. Was simple to use. Just plugged it in and it picked up my existing signal. No pairing or reset needed. Having the multiple ports came in handy. These days everything can connect to the internet. The TV, DirecTV box, Blu-ray player, and stereo can all connect.
