Works flawlessly and better than expected

N. Hurd, Amazon
24 May 2014
  • Summary: I read a lot of the negative reviews and was a little worried but decided to give it a shot. It works great is way better than my weak wifi signal. I have the modem upstairs on the other end of the house (about 2500 sq ft) on a different circuit breaker than the intended outlet for this. I was worried about the distance and different breakers but it works fast with no problems. I tried a wifi booster and I still lost too much speed.

Great speed

Own Rules, Amazon

  • Summary: Have four of these units and they work flawlessly. Get very close to the same speeds as my desktop wich is directly connected to my modem. Hardly ever looses signal -- and when/if they do, a simple unplug/plug at all the stations solves the problem in mere minutes. Very satisfied. Wish they were wireless as well...

It really is as easy as plug and play

Lockhart, Amazon
23 September 2013
  • Summary: I was having trouble with the quality of streaming on my new SmartTV hooked up over wifi, which is on the opposite end of the house from the router. HD quality would drop to a pixellated mess randomly. After some research, I came across these little doo-dads. I read and read, trying to understand in my non-technical brain how they worked.

  • Summary: It works as advertised. I have had two others. One only lasted a year and the other is still working. Internet connection is much faster than wireless when tested several times.

Worked like a charm

DivideDave, Amazon

  • Summary: I'm very happy with this item. I've been using my ZyXELs for about 2 months now and it's worked 100% flawless.Installation went without a hitch - this baby was totally plug and play. My ZyXELs are plugged into surge suppressors, which I thought might cause a problem, but that works okay too.

Love these adapters

Ron T. Mccargar, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • Summary: We have a fairly large house and wireless doesn't cut it for a solid/fast connection. Currently we have this and 2 others (the ones with the pass through plug) for picking up the signal over the electrical wires and they have all worked great. I've had no problems with Netflix or other services being slow (but we do have fast internet to begin with.

As long as its on the same circuit it works perfectly

  • Summary: This works as long as it is on the same electric meter. I tried to use it in an apartment building but they had separate meters so it didn't work. It worked perfectly at my house though.

Compatible with Netgear Powerline AV 200 Adaptor

e1e, Amazon
19 July 2012
  • Summary: I have a pair of Netgear Powerline AV 200 Ethernet Adapters which I use to connect my desktop to the router. Now I want to buy another powerline adaptor to connect my laptop. At the beginning I thought I had to buy Netgear branded powerline adaptor to be compatible with the existing ones, after reading so many good reviews I wanted to give this a try.

Just works - 30 second setup and great speed

Adam Byram, Amazon
11 July 2012
  • Summary: Wireless gets pretty unstable in our living room since our wireless router is on the opposite side of the house and up one story. Laptops can deal with the instability, but our Roku has trouble maintaining a solid streaming connection. I installed two of the PLA401v3 units and so far, they are working flawlessly. Setup literally took 30 seconds...plug in the included ethernet cord, connect it up to the router, plug in the ZyWEL, and then repeat with the second unit.

Great way to get rid of intermittent wireless problems

Carver Smith, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • Summary: Using these is a great way to make a connection more stable plus you don't have to encrypt the signal which makes it faster. Everyone notices that immediately.
