    Works perfectly, great for gaming!

    I purchased this specifically for my gaming setup when I got a PS4 last December. My bedroom is upstairs in the furthest room from our router, so the wi-fi is terrible. To make matters worse, our internet is unreliable and tends to drop or slow down at any given moment, so I just didn't want to deal with the drop offs. I set this up as a dedicated connection for my PS4 and it works perfectly. I set one up right next to the router downstairs, and the other in my bedroom on the second floor. I never have issues with the internet and can play online multiplayer games like Fortnite BR as well as stream videos from Netflix and YouTube without any issues. Every now and then, I need to unplug it and plug it back in if there's a problem with the internet, but that's rare and I can usually just do it quickly before I start up my system, and it's fine again for a long time. This doesn't effect my gameplay or the reliability of my connection. Overall, this was very easy to set up and I'm really happy with it. I plan on getting another console soon and I might set that up in another room, and if I do I'll definitely pick up a set for that one too!

    So with this product I was able to plug it in an outlet and then from the outlet to the modem. It’s comes with 2, so the other one was plugged in another outlet and connected to my camera system. This enables me to view my cameras (my system is wired, not wireless) on my phone when I’m away from home. My only complaint is ever so often I’m not able to view from my phone, so I have to unplug one and resync it to the other. I’m not sure why they stop communicating with each other. It’s fine if you come home everyday, but in the event you were out of town it would pose a problem. It’s very random so I can’t say it happens every week. A more accurate account would be at least once or twice a month.

    Great Internet Connectivity

    I bought a set of these to try out in my 2-story home. I needed to get internet connectivity from the wireless router on the first floor to the far end of the second floor and WiFI would not reach with a steady signal. After very easily linking the two adapters near the router, I simply plugged the second one in upstairs and immediately had full speed connectivity, just like being plugged directly into the router. Great product - great price - so I bought a second set to connect my two WiFi enabled TVs and now they stream better than ever.

    I bought the Powerline AV200 Nano Adapter Starter Kit so I could hook up an audio receiver to the internet. The receiver is upstairs and my router is downstairs. For some reason, the receiver didn't have a wireless option. The connection was simple. Just plug it in a wall outlet and use the cat 5 cables (included). It works great. I bought an additional kit and was able to set up an old router as an "access point" upstairs. I now have a strong wireless signal throughout the house.

    We tried to use this, but for some reason the internet speed would go down when the laptop was taken of wi-fi and connected to the adapter. We tried it a couple of times, and havent used it ever since. I'm giving 2 stars, because the laptop did connect to the internet, but the speed that the adapter let pass through was less that using wi-fi We might give it another try. Cannot reccomend this product at this time.

      Hi, thanks for reviewing our Powerline kit!

      We’ll be happy to address the concerns you have about your network speed.

      Please bear in mind that the theoretical maximum channel data transfer rate of Powerline Adapters is derived from HomePlug AV specifications. Actual data transfer rate will vary from network environment variables including: distance between adapters, network traffic, noise on electrical wires, building material and construction, quality of electrical installation and other adverse conditions.

      We highly suggest making sure your Powerline Adapters are plugged directly into wall sockets; no surge protectors or power strips as these will interfere with the connection. We also recommend ensuring the adapters are plugged in the same directional orientation to match polarity.

      We’d love to follow up with you and answer any questions you might have. Please send an e-mail with your contact information and a copy of this review to USSupportTeam@TP-Link.com and we'll gladly have a Support Agent follow up with you directly.

      Thank you again for your feedback. We hope you'll keep TP-Link in mind for your future networking needs.

      Best Regards,

    I had been looking for something to hardwire my personal computer, work computer, and my gaming system because even though I have excellent Wi-Fi signal I also get lots of interference from all the other Wi-Fi signals in my apartments. I was able to get this up and running plus secured, so no one steals my internet, within a minute or two and it blows away my Wi-Fi speeds.

    My home office is on the opposite side of my house from the router so I have weak wireless signal so I bought these to see if they will help and sure enough, they did. I saw a 200% increase in speed over wireless. Setup was also a breeze! I was up and going in a couple minutes. Note that these work depending on your home's electrical wiring and may no work for all especially much older homes.

    Its simplicity is its weakness

    The product's setup is overall simple to follow, but it is when technical difficulties arise that the product's simplicity becomes very complicated and frustrating to troubleshoot. When the item lost internet connection, I took over three hours troubleshooting. The manual and online help did nothing to resolve the issue. I was lucky to have fixed the problem by accident. For the price, it is an ok buy.

    The TP-Link works perfectly. I had a room that was 200 feet away from my Linksys routers. The signal was weak and I installed a Smart TV. I did not know if these AC adapters would work. I used the TP-Link and plugged-in an Ethernet cable to the TV. Wow, it worked great and I save a bundle not having to buy a stronger router or to run an Ethernet cable to the room.

    I had terrible reception from my wireless because of a metalic door between the rooms, so I put one of the injectors in the modem room, and one in the poor reception room. I then plugged a wireless router into the power line injector. Now my room has full bandwidth! These are so much easier than running cables from room to room. They are ingenious!

    I needed wifi in my garage but my router was at the other end of the house so I ordered this kit. Plugged one adapter into the wall and connected to the router. Then plugged the other adapter into the wall in the garage and connected to an old router I had configured as a wifi access point. Problem solved. There is no configuration required.

    I am really extremely impressed by the easy way of set up process .Really works just as advertised, as easy as plugging in and going. Now I can get signal downstairs, where I couldn't before. By the way, I have been using it for a few days, the signal is very stable.

    I bought this kit for a client that had to use a WiFi connection to her desktop computer (no way to get ethernet cable to computer because of home construction). The WiFi signal strength was marginal and the computer would randomly drop the wireless connection. This kit allowed me to get a wired connection, and it's working well.

    I needed to connect a device on the other side of the house that did not have wireless capability, and this was the perfect solution. Tried it with a PC and while not quite like being plugged into the router, it was pretty close. Network speed was better than WiFi. Setup it fool proof too.

    My PS4 wouldn't stay connected wirelessly to the internet, and the router is in a completely different room, so this product allows me to stay connected like I was wired but it is still in the next room and no stringing wires through the house. Definitely recommend for all PS4 users.

    We use these in homes that have have a wimpy Comcast or Verizon modem / router that are not strong enough. Work great and no setup just plug them in and hook up your Ethernet cables and boom instant connection. No configuring.

    Extra simple, plug them in push the button and you're done. I was ready to throw away my laptop due to poor wireless performance, although this didn't mfix the wireless, it did cure the speed problem. I will recommend this

    I bought these to stop the use of wifi unnecessarily. The kids love streaming Netflix and they always forget to turn off the blu ray when they're done. This product is like using the Ethernet hard wired in.
