  • Better than cabling everywhere...just.

    I just set it up and ditched the included Cat5 cables because WHY D-Link, seriously...? Nobody will get anywhere close to 2 Gigabit speeds over Cat5 cabling...So dumb... Anyways...my home is almost 50yrs old (original wiring), and the AV2 2000 plays 4K off Netflix, and Youtube, Google Play Movies, etc no problem...but for some reason it struggles with 4K content off my NAS whereas with a direct wired connection that never happened. We'll see...but at least I don't have to deal with 100' cabling everywhere anymore.

    The fastest powerline product I ever used, getting 200mbps speed from basement to upstairs, same speed as the direct connection with a cat6 cable. It makes a tiny noise and not sure it could be last longer.

    It is the fastest powerline I ever tried, I got 200MBps speed from basemen to upstairs, it is the same speed as I got with a cat6 cable direct connection. The only thing I concern, it makes a tiny noise and I don't know if it could last longer.


  • 100 mb port only

    Be aware, this is not a gigabit connection. It has a 10/100 port only. I connected it to my switch and it showed only a 100mb connection. Don’t fall for the marketing. When it’s “up to”, there are loopholes that can be used in what they can claim.


  • Works as intended

    From upstairs to the basement finally got internet down there. The AV500 would show us a red light and give us a bad connection of 1-2mbps but with AV2000 get around 20mbps, still short of what I pay for but considering how far it is and also how far it is on the circuit breaker which is what matters the most, it does the job. Been through a few other products, just pay the extra for this and you won't be disappointed. If this doesn't work, you'll need those new big routers that are used for commercial purposes to get internet in your home.


  • So far so good!

    Was struggling with my wireless connection to my work PC at home with slow speeds. Tried some Wi-Fi extenders/boosters with minimal results. Purchased this about a week ago and I have consistent 55Meg now at my PC. I've heard from others that running the dryer or other high voltage appliances caused interference with their connection and speed. I've had no issues with my VPN staying connected around the clock and it works great.


  • Max speed achieved 80-90Mbps versus the 140Mbps achieved via Wifi

    I purchased this device to improved the speed going to my android box as hard wired to the router gets speeds over 300Mbps but maxing out at about 160Mbps via wifi connection.. I was disappointed to find that the speed achieved with this product claiming to be up to 1Gbps produced speeds nearly half of what I aheivex wirelessly..

    This item was excellent value on sale. With wireless N, the PC was getting 15 Mbps. I used this item to build a local network with a D-Link gigabit switch in room upstairs from the router. Now PCs and printer are giabit connected. Internet download speed is over 175 Mbps with Shaw 150 service!
