    Product not the best; customer service atrocious

    I purchased two NETGEAR Powerline Network Adapters on March 27. I went to Bestbuy on the following Monday and purchased another unit. I wanted to get rid of all network cabling for my home network and entertainment devices. Powerline adapters were the way to go. On April 5th I attempted to register the three adapter sets (six units) through the NETGEAR registration site. I was able to enter the registration numbers for four of the units. The site informed me that two of the serial numbers were not valid. Confused, I sent an email to NETGEAR Customer Service and that’s when the third-degree examination began. They wrote back and asked for copies of my receipts. I sent them a copy of the BESTBUY order conformation email but did not have a copy of my BESTBUY email for the two I brought from my BESTBUY store. As of April 7th, I have heard nothing from NETGEAR Customer Service about my registration numbers. As for the NETGEAR Powerline adapters themselves, I had read how the adapters had a tendency to drop network connections seemingly at random. I started getting this problem within two days of installing the units. I saw a suggestion that I tweak the WiFi settings of my router. I did. This helped somewhat. Finally I unplugged all the units, plugged them back in and reset them by pressing the adapter reset buttons. I think this finally solved the random dropping of connections. I give the adapter three stars because I think the adapters themselves could have been better designed–the reset button on the units is recessed inside the case and requires a paperclip or other thin device to press. The three stars are really a reflection of the very low opinion I have of a customer service operation that responds to a complaint with a bevy of ridiculous questions having nothing to do with the complaint. Where would I have gotten serial numbers for the product if I had not purchased it? I would not recommend NETGEAR adapters for the two reasons given.

    Purchased the Netgear Powerline 1200 for my workshop which is 190 feet from my house. Had a wireless extender unit installed previously which stopped being able to connect with my router. I wanted a relatively less expensive means to get internet in my shop than either installing a long range wifi antenna or running a cat5 cable. The 1200 was easy to install. Just find two electrical plugs adjacent to both the router and the intended computer on the other end. Connect the Ethernet cables on both ends. The press the security button and wait for them to connect. Two drawbacks are immediately apparent. Although you get a plug on the face of both units, the 1200 may cover the other plug on the electrical outlet depending on were you plug it in. The other is that the signal goes through two breaker boxes. There is a lot of noise interference on the path between the router to the intended computer. It runs at the lowest speed. There are three speeds green, amber, and red. Mine runs in the red speed. Having said all of this the 1200 delivers the internet in my shop. I stream videos from YouTube with no trouble. One thing I have noticed is that I have shop lights on four separate switches. While the shop lights are cold (when I first turn them on) and I use more than one set, they cause so much line noise that the Netgear 1200 disconnects. If you do not have any other method of delivering reliable internet remotely from your router, the Netgear Powerline 1200 will do the job.

    Does exactly what it says

    I live out in the country and well only ran 1 cable for Internet and that's connected to our WiFi router. I'm a gamer and would get frustrated with less than dependable lag from games like rocket league and fortnite. I thought that it was something I had to deal with because getting the whole house with Ethernet connections was just more of a headache than I wanted to put up with. Then I heard about this product and was still skeptical and over the course of 2 months finally decided to give it a try. Well how stupid I am for waiting. Works completely fine with no lag and I can be a happy gamer now. Now if I suck its my fault and not the "servers". Unless I keep doing bad, then I'll blame servers again to make myself feel better. Only con is that it makes a high pitch noise that most older people probably can't hear but I'm young enough to hear it... So that sucks but I'm totally fine with that. So all you young'ns get a headset for gaming and if you don't game... Well listen to loud music, hum, play drums, or use it as a meditation sound and become one with nature or find yourself. Anyways 10\10 would recommend!

    Best Solution for me

    I recently started renting a room on the third floor of a house, and the wifi is transmitting from the bottom floor. I am a new PC gamer and wanted a solid fast connection, and the downstairs wifi was not cutting it. For an arm and a leg our internet provider was willing to route cables through the walls up into my bedroom (landlord not willing to have ethernet cords running through hallway). I stumbled upon this solution without meaning to while at BB looking for wifi extenders. I had never heard of this type of internet solution (ethernet extended through power-lines? weird...). I quickly read reviews on my phone and decided to try it out on a whim. The set up was straightforward and there's even a security option in case...um...hackers tap into your back-porch outlet hoping there's internet? Anyway I feel better knowing its there. The extra outlet on these devices was a selling point and worth it for me. Most importantly, THEY WORK! My internet speed went from 2-3 mbit/sec on the wifi to a solid 30 mbit/sec on ethernet through these devices. This has cut my download times by a factor of 10 (significant when games are over 10 Gb). HD videos no longer freeze when streaming. In other words, it works exactly as if I had the ethernet straight from the router/modem into my computer. Would recommend these for someone in a similar situation.

    Pass-Thru = great, PT + Dual Ports = BETTER!

    A friend who'd already purchased powerline adapters warned me in advance to look for unit;s with a pass-thru outlet. So, let's get the praise out of the way -- technically they are great and the pass-thru is helpful. Now, for the rest of the story: I thought I was so smart - until I discovered that I needed dual ethernet ports and NG doesn't make one with both pass-thru + dual ports. Also the top surface of this powerline adapter juts up too high above the 3-prong outlet so you can't plug in another grounded plug above it into the outlet. The ground wire just won't go in. Period. [Don't you just hate it when that happens?!?!] In other words -- where are you going to plug in your UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) if you can't share that same outlet, you can't plug it into the pass-thru without getting a wiring issue alarm -- and your UPS and or computer don't have extremely long cords that will allow you to situate your UPS across the room plugged into another outlet? (None of them have long cords. Trust me). Didn't someone test these powerlines out with a UPS + PC and and realize that they don't share well with others. #DesignFail

    Good product to extend wifi to hard to reach areas

    I had challenges with wifi in my home due to the location of my router downstairs in the front of the home, the numerous wifi signals in the neighborhood (including 2 from a school behind me), and the multiple items in my house looking for a wifi signal (Xbox, Playstation, pool controller, iPhones, iPads and laptops). I tried using a multi-channel wifi router to no avail. A repeater plugged in upstairs did not help much. So, I tried a set of the Netgear Powerline adapters. My first test was with the pool controller in the yard. I connected one to my Uverse gateway, and the other one to the pool controller. It worked great. No more messages telling me that the controller was offline. I then bought a second set and moved a wifi router upstairs. Much better wifi signal throughout the house and yard. I also connected one to my son's gaming desktop upstairs and it works great. No configuration required with the second set. It immediately recognized the initial set and works great. I have tested the internet speed and I get the same speed vie the Powerline adapters as I do on the computer connected directly to the Uverse gateway. I may just buy another set since they are so simple to add wired connections to the house.

    I play blade and soul which is a game that is extremely ping dependent than most other games to do well whether it be in PVE or PVP. The lags affect my dps (damage per second) and my ability to execute my combos quickly in PVP matches against other players which really tilts the f*ck out of me. This powerline adapter basically shores up those 200-300 ms pings and i've had a consistent 90-130 ms pings after I hook up the powerline. It's very easy to set up and once I was connected, my gameplay improved. It's also good for watching videos online compared to just being connected through a wireless usb adapter that I had to use before this so no buffering.The adapter also had a wall socket to it's face so u don't have to worry about losing a wall socket completely from the adapter and having to move and switch different appliances/devices to another area of the house.

    Best tech purchase I have ever made

    This device does exactly what I wanted it to and then some. I have literally the same connection speed as when i tested it plugged directly to the modem. For context, I am an avid PC gamer that has over the years refused the addition of a wireless network card in my PC. I have recently moved into a situation where the room my PC is in has 0 ethernet jacks, or cable jacks, so i can neither set up the home ethernet network or even move the modem. This solution was seen initially as a reach as I have read a lot of it has to do with wiring in the house. Maybe I got lucky, or maybe this product is a lot better than people are giving credit and its really their internet that's bad or their wiring that is faulty. The room I am in used to be a garage and has terrible old wiring, and I have bad suburban comcast (moving from beautiful richmond city verizon) so I don't really see that being much of an excuse. Either way an easy 5 star from a happy gamer.
