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.

  • 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.

works great

peter t., Newegg
12 January 2014
  • Pros: Much improved over AV200 Netgear unit and 3-4 times faster than first gen netgear unit from 2007. Internet download speeds increased from 18MB/sec download to 40-50MB/sec download (matching speeds for PC connected to router through gigabit switch). Easy to use, didn't bother with bundled software...
  • Cons: none.

Works well in pairs, but needs better software for linking multiple sets

jmiller, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: Bought two sets. The first set works great. Fast. Happy with this. When I tried to link all four together though (one to router and 3 around the house), the software to program them from Zyxel is not intuitive.

Invest in this instead of wireless

Lisa M., Newegg
27 November 2013
  • Pros: As soon as I plugged them in they started working, it reduced my lag in game from 60 ms to 20 ms, it boost my online speeds from 20 download 15 upload to 30 download 25 upload. It also completely reduced my jitter to 0! Best networking buy I've ever had!
  • Cons: The only con is the cables that came with them are too short. They were so unreasonable and I had to go out and buy longer ones.

Good hardware, sucky software

13 November 2013
  • Summary: Withholding one star due to software unfriendliness. I work in software and can tell you this application can be made a lot more friendlier.

Worked after a try or two

Attn4d, Amazon
10 September 2013
  • Summary: I bought this product for an apartment where a wire could not be ran from one area to another. Wireless would have worked but was not sufficient for streaming videos from one computer to another so I figured I would give this a try.

Good product

Jonathan P Leslie, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • Summary: This item fit the bill of my situation and provided a better solution than wireless. Very easy to setup. Definitely need to follow the instructions of plugging directly into a power outlet and not into a power strip which will degrade the signal. Shipping was very fast too!
