      Answer

      Unfortunately it only works with the one router. The other routers don't have the network over power hardware needed built in to the device.

          Answer

          Yes you can plug in a device with a LAN cable because it has one output. I don't think the speed will improve though. The speed is determined by many things, i.e. your bandwidth, ISP, the router you are using, etc. So consider these factors as well.a

            I put out a good bit for my router which is a ASUS AC-1900 dual band router, would this work easily with the Netgear - dead spot terminator wireless adapter? I don't want to waste my money. Can you help me figure it out?   (1 Answer)

              No, this will only work with the router it was designed to work with (Netgear R7300). The device uses your homes electrical wiring to transceive data. The router has to be able to inject the data into the electrical system. Imagine asking if you can buy tickets for a train that goes to a city where there are no train tracks connected. This is essentially what you are asking.
