Summary: I needed a solution to connect my WD TV Live Plus media streamer downstairs so I can access Netflix, etc... Unfortunately, it's not wifi capable unless I buy a USB wifi adapter for it. This is the perfect solution. I connected one adapter to my modem upstairs, plugged it in. The other adapter, I plugged it downstairs and connected my WD TV Live Plus to it (also connected my Blu-Ray player) and it works perfect. Way better than the USB wifi adapter solution.
Summary: I plugged in and it just worked! Bought this pair at about $70 (tax included) when on sale, otherwise, a little bit pricey. I've not tested the speed but it does not matter to me because we mainly use the laptop for web browsing. The built in outlet is definitely helpful. I'd suggest that when you buy a pair, do take this as a must-to-have.
Summary: The setup was easy and the hardware is nice. After installing and changing the encryption key I did a test. All network devices and router/switch support gigabit ethernet. Finding 1: Windows Task Manager reports the link speed to be 100mbps Finding 2: Best file transfer speed seems to be ~6.8 MB/s (54.4mbps) Finding 3: WAN ping times <25ms This should be fine most internet usage, but if you're streaming HD media, you may get stuttering for 1080p with surround.
Summary: Got these to pipe internet upstairs where I can't run a line. They are simple to set up (plug and play) and seem to work great. I have mine plugged into different circuits and they work fine. On the terminal end I plugged a Dlink wifi access point into it and it "just works", lol.
