SO much more consistent than wifi

I do tons of research b4 buying, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • 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. Updating to the newest one or using the CD driver doesn't work. It still works but it will eventually cut out.

  • Summary: Brings internet from my basement up to two levels to wired computer on second floor. It must also be running through 2 different fuse boxes to get there, but works fine.Very cool.

Fast and convenient

  • 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. Other than that we are happy with the performance.

No good for apartments/older buildings

  • 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. apparently there can be a couple issues in this regard: 1) the electrical lines are older and "dirty"-- that the signal gets a lot of interference.

Flawless Plug and Play

  • Summary: I've been using these for about a year with security cameras and have had zero problems. Highly recommended. And I'm happy to see that some of the newer pass-through models are not as bulky.

It Works!!!

  • Summary: Did not think these things would work worth a crap. But. . . they did. Just plugged them in and there you have it. The internet on a desktop in a room with no internet. What a concept.

Seem to have some issues

Monte, Amazon

  • 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.

You have to love something that works this easy and works well

van, Amazon

  • 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. just faster speed.

Just as advertised

Michael D'Angelo, Amazon
11 June 2013
  • 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. Now that laptop is wired and my wife doesn't get kicked off anymore when she logs into work. I bought an additional box and wire my Apple TV as well. Works without a problem and was just as easy to connect a 3rd box and encrypt. Highly recommended.

Excellent Value, Excellent Product

  • Summary: We built our home in 2007. If you have ever built a home you would understand the sheer amount of decisions you have to make. One decision I wish I had mad differently was putting ethernet in our office. Just never thought about home networking when we were building. When I finally decided some 5 years later that I wanted a wired connection, it seemed like it was going to be a majorly difficult, and expensive process.
