Easy setup, works well (though I got 16 Mbps at best). My only peeve with this product is BAD DESIGN : the height of the unit above the pass-through is too high, such the power outlet above becomes unusable!
Brainless setup, fantastic solution for hardwiring a network
Got this for our new desktop PC, already have a too many devices on our WI-FI so decided to try a more direct line, super easy setup, plug and play and the signal strength indicator on the unit itself (green light means strong, yellow is medium etc.) gives you an idea if the AC outlet is the correct one to be using. Also the AC passthrough is especially handy as you're not losing a plug. Only problem is it takes a few seconds for it to intialize whenever starting up again but minor quibbles. Will likely get a couple more for other rooms.
Forget the one star review from chris, he obviously bought the wrong product as this is unit is made specifically for wired network connections rather than as a wifi extender. (*sigh)
This product is as idiot proof as they come!! Both plug in units are the same so there is no confusion which unit connects with the modem and which unit plugs into your wall outlet to provide internet in the house. The speed of the data being sent via the house electrical system and the reliability of the system in the short time that I have had it in the house is as good or better than I had imagined when I first started to research the options to stream the internet in a 30 year old home.
It was simple to set up... I just plugged the Adapter into the wall plug in the living room, ((NOT a power bar.)) Plugged the 2nd one in the far room in the basement. It is just like a wired gigabit Ethernet connection, but uses your in house power plugs. You can even run a long extension cord from an outside plug to the corner of your yard if someone tells you to play outside.
I've had these for over a week now and they are working very well. I have my WiFi extender connected, using an ethernet cable, to the one nearest my computer and it works great with high speed and almost no disconnections. I previously returned a different brand of powerline extender because it was constantly losing the connection.
Not being much of techy as far as computers are concerned, but after enlisting my daughter's assistance we moved the modem from the the room that had the desktop to the basement entertainment room. This was to accommodate Wifi for the Smart TV, we then decided after some research on her part to purchase the Netgear product It was simple to setup and install for providing the internet signal to the desktop in the original room. In retrospect I believe that maybe that I could have done it without help - only kidding Elaine!
Setup was really finicky and I found the WiFi performance terrible. It wasn't too bad when I plugged my computer into the LAN port on the device but that kinda defeated the purpose of why I bought it in the first place - which was to extend and improve the WiFi coverage in my house in areas that were far from my current router. Even with my computer plugged in with the LAN cable to this powerline adapter, I was getting faster upload than download speeds...not cool. Maybe I got a defective unit but I gave up after several days of experimenting with it, connecting, resetting, re-connecting etc. and returned it. Got the Linksys AMPLIFY AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender (RE6700-CA) instead and I'm super pleased with that device. Instantly strong, solid WiFi signal, super easy to set up. Linksys wins hands-down over this Netgear device.
