    "would buy it again...So I glad I tried it...There are times when WiFi isn't the way to go and in big houses, or multi-story houses with many walls, this is a superior way of adding additional routers and wired connections....NOTE, in general you CAN NOT use these with Dish and other satellite alternatives to cable (wrong end of the spectrum) and in my case I used it without cable channels, so less of a chance of interference"
