      Works fine for surfing, too much ping time

      My home wi-fi doesn't quite reach the edge of my house, particularly my theater room. I tried using a wi-fi extender but it didn't really work, so I went with these. I have 300Mbps internet and I'm able to get a solid 120Mbps where I have the receiver installed. It's not bad and that's more than fast enough for gaming, video streaming, etc. My issue is that the ping time has increased drastically. It went from 5ms (what I get when I'm in range of my wi-fi) all the way up to 150ms. That means that Netflix has to really buffer before it can start streaming, gaming is downright impossible too. I will probably keep these simply because it works good enough for my NAS storage unit. I had a 5 port gigabit ethernet switch hooked up to this so that my PS4, Xbox One, Apple TV, and NAS could all get fast internet in my home theater room. Now I'm running a grouping of ethernet wires through my wall to get to my consoles, my Apple TV is able to use my wi-fi connection just fine. It could all be due to the wiring in my house as well. It's a little older so I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it. I will likely replace this whole setup with a series of wi-fi extenders throughout my house once I have enough funding. Until then, this works OK.

      Powerline Internet Signal 200 ft to Detached Shop

      (SOLVED) I built a shop out back of my house. I buried 2-1/2" conduit from my power meter and gas meter to supply the needed utilities at the shop. When it was time to pull CAT6 through the conduit, I learned that it would get interference if pulled along side of the power drop and code would not allow it along side of the gas supply line. After debating trenching for CAT6 and line of sight wireless I had about given up on a cost effective Internet in the shop. I began researching powerline ethernet extenders. I read many reviews with a variety of outcomes both good and bad. The results and stability were fairly consistent with the Netgear Powerline 1000. The most important thing that I learned through all of my research is those having the best results have a more direct line between the powerline adapters.I experimented using the pick a plug feature on the Powerline 1000 and was confident that with the proper combination of placement for the adapters, that I would get a strong signal and in fact I was finally able to get a green Pick A Plug LED, which signafies a full ethernet signal. I accomplished this by locating one powerline adapter outside in the ONT box next to the power meter service and the other located in the first 120 volt outlet exiting the shop subpanel. Thanks to this technology I have Internet speed equal to the Internet in the main home. I hope my review helps others in gaining a successful powerline Internet connection.

      I finally just got tired of the lousy throughput of wireless. I had tested and tested and tested and found I was only able to get 25 Mb/sec throughput even when I placed any number of devices less than 15 feet away from my router (100 Mb/sec Comcast) but found that devices hardwired to the router consistently had full throughput as advertised. I did some research and tried to eliminate interference between wireless access points and other 2.4 and 5 Gb/sec devices with just about no success and was at the point where I was going to drop $279 on the newest, latest and greatest WiMo router when I thought I would try these babies. Plugged them in and easey/peasey they synced and I found I was getting the full bandwidth anywhere in my house I put them. So I spent about $70 instead of $279 and plugged in the things that required better bandwidth (like streaming to my Roku and my laptop). They are small, unobtrusive and have been working great with no loss of sync and perfect speed for over 4 weeks. love them and recommend them highly!

      How in the world does this not have a full 5 star rating for all the reviews! This product is super easy and required nothing from me but the energy to walk upstairs and plug it in the 2nd socket. I opened the box read the instructions which were short and to the point. I plugged one in the plug behind my router/modem, and then connected to the router/modem. All the lights were green and suggested in the instructions. Walked upstairs plugged the other into the other plug and connected to my NVR security system. BAMMMM!!! worked without any other energy from me other than plugging into the plug. All I can say is WOW!!! I have not done a speed test on it but I will say I am getting full connection and fast playback from my NVR security system as when I tested directly connecting to the router during my NVR system test prior to full install. I did not have this before with the wireless setup I had even with a gigabit router. Also people that say these are high compared to others are just talking :). Compare this price to another Gigabit Powerline Adapter and you will see it is priced in the same ballpark.

      This product is exactly what I was looking for. I plug it into the wall with Ethernet cord from my router, and it relays the signal through the electrical socket to the other piece which plugs via Ethernet cord to my x-box one. The signal is sent through the power lines. I never knew the power lines could send data also. The signal maintains its strength and I am able to game from way back in my basement. This product is perfect for sending a signal at a distance. This product must be used with Ethernet cable but they also make one which is like $20 bucks more that sends a wireless signal. You could purchase 2 sets and use up to 8 plug pieces. Me and my roommate share our signal to play Star Wars Battlefront and it handles everything with no lag. I definitely recommend this product to anyone trying to extend their internet signal into other rooms. Wi-Fi does not compare to hardwired Ethernet cable directly.

      Please note that I understand that every home is different so, take this with a grain of salt. The room I used this in was upstairs and a a few rooms away from the router, which is downstairs. The set up was super easy and the connection was established immediately. The only bad part was the connection speeds. The best I could get was 40up/10down. My cell phone wifi was faster. Also, when an appliance is plugged in and used on the same electrical line, the speeds completely bottomed out. I ended up returning this and getting the NetGear AC1200 Dualband wi-fi adapter and the speeds on that are 100up/15 down. Every home is different, so my recommendation is to try it and see if it works. If it doesn't, Best Buy is great to work with on the return.

      Works just as advertised. Package comes with two Network Extenders and two LAN cables. I am, by no means, a networking guru. My son (networking guru) told me about these and I am really glad he did. 1) Plug in first Network Extender near primary router. 2) Connect to router with cable (provided in package). 3) Go to an outlet where you want a stronger wifi signal (or as a means to connect to a desktop by cable) and plug in the second Network Extender . Signal travels from primary router to Network Extender #1, through house electrical power lines, to Network Extender #2 where you can use a cable (provided) to connect to a laptop, desktop, or a secondary router configured as an access point. Voila! Instant signal and range. I connected my second Network Extender to a secondary router configured as an access point. If I can do this, so can you.

      Good option for where WiFi isn't available

      I used this to connect my gaming console to my router that was on a different floor. The signal strength wasn't the greatest so I was looking for a better option. This did the job but at a cost. I worry about security since this uses the wiring to transfer the signal. I read online that the signal ends at transformers but I worry about someone being able to connect to my network. There is a security option button but I don't know if it works. By default they all share the same internal name. This means anyone who purchased the same brand could connect to your network. I attempted to connect directly to the extender using its IP address to confirm the name change but was unable to. So, if your not concerned about the potential security issue (apartments are especially at risk) and you don't mind the price (personallly I think it's a little too high), this is a great option.
