Extremely Unreliable

Jimmy G, Amazon
3 days ago
  • Summary: DON'T BUY THIS! It may work most of the time. But when it doesn't, it may take hours or days before it works again. It is extremely frustrating because you may spend hours trying to figure out what is wrong. All the lights on the device indicate it is working when, in fact, it is not working. I have confirmed that it is not working by connecting directly to my router (not using the powerline connectors).

Don't waste your money and time. Not really plug and play and a headache to make it work. Too many buts

  • Summary: Don't buy this product, too many buts and workaround to make it work and finally could not make it work as expected. It's not really plug and play (as described online). I purchased this product hoping I could expand my Internet connection to other parts of the house using the A/C wiring. I was wrong.

Problem solved.

Michel Le, Amazon

  • Summary: Love it. My wifi router is at the opposite end of the house and I had such a weak wifi signal on my computer. Now it's all good, except that times to times it doesn't wake up with my computer. I have to unplug the cord, turn on my wifi to get started, plug it back in, wait for all the lights to go green, and turn off my wifi. But this is a minor annoyance. Great performance and value for the price.

Warning: Don't use more than two of these devices at a time!

  • Summary: Update 3/6/15 If you do buy these devices, I'd recommend purchasing power noise filtering devices for any sensitive electronics you may have, eg. computers, routers, TVs, stereo equipment, etc. I purchased Tripp Lite Isobars. Don't plug these devices into the isobars though. They communicate via the noise they generate on the power wiring and that noise is filtered out. Update 2/27/2015 Down rating from 5 stars to 2 stars.

  • Summary: Zyxel provided excellent service advising me on the purchase and helping with the setup and installation. The ability to use the house power lines to extend the ethernet has been a big help.

  • Summary: A quick way to get ethernet connectivity. Latency using the network over powerline is minimal. A much better alternative to wireless when there latency is a factor

Tanu501, Amazon

  • Summary: You won’t get the full advertised speed (nor should you expect to), but it works very well. I use it in a NYC apartment and even being on separate floors (but behind the same breaker box) it is sufficient for streaming Netflix, etc. Note that an idle connection takes a few seconds to re-establish itself when you first try to get data, so don’t be surprised if a connection doesn’t always work right way if it has been idle for a bit.

Not as easy as it seems/claims

Jie Yin, Amazon
20 September 2014
  • Summary: If you are living in a house with different circuit boards for different floors/rooms moderately wired with UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and/or whole house surge protection equipment (i.e. any decently built modern house), you can pretty much forget about plug-n-play with this powerline ethernet adapter - buried deep in the poorly written instructions are warnings dressed as "trouble shooting tips" to rule out any reliable links between the adapters ...
