Summary: I had a TP-Link 722n I bought from Newegg since it's the highest rated, most reviewed USB Wifi Adapter. It works great but occasionally it will fail and I already been through 3 of them. It's like out of nowhere, after 3-4 months of using the usb wifi, they just have driver issues or something.
Summary: Works great...it is an excellent way to get Cat 5 to any where in the house. Though there might be some limitation on speed..depending on what is running on the same circuit...we found that when our gas dryer was running the transmission speed between the devices was limited.
Summary: I wish they made this clearer. it is not even in many of the reviews, but only after purchasing and having problems did i find out that these are not really meant for older buildings and/or apartments.
Summary: These adapters do work most of the time, unless the router is re-booted. The boxes will then need to be re-synced to each other by unplugging both. Using 1 at each end of the house. At least 60-ft apart.

Summary: I plugged one in by router, attached plug to router as though it were a new computer then plugged the other one of these into a room across the house and plugged it into my roku. thats it. I turned on my roku and its as if I had run a line directly from the router to the roku. no codes no questions.
Summary: Ok, I had a few doubts about this when I bought it. However, it took about 10-15 minutes to have it up and running with encryption. Works like a charm and solved the poor wireless signal I had in the 2nd bedroom.
Summary: I already own the Netgear 85Mbps Powerline Network Adapter XETB1001, which I use to stream HD 1080 from my server, it has worked flawlessly for 2+ years, a single HD stream requires ~6.6Mbps bandwidth to work well.
