      Set-up was not as straight forward as I would have hoped, otherwise 5 stars. Couldn't get the two adapters to connect and had to reset 3 times. 3rd time was the charm and now works as advertised. Happy with the product!

          Comments about D-Link DHP-501AV PowerLine AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit:

          We have an old house and have been trying, for years, to get internet from one end of the house to the other. This is the first product that has worked. It works very well... A nice, clear, signal and it was simple to set up.
          I small suggestion for next year's model...make the box a little smaller on top so that the 2nd plug can be used in the electrical outlet. The box currently blocks it.
