      I had to mount 4 wireless IP cameras a distance from the router in a large building. The wireless didn't work for this distance. I researched the powerline network adapters and read some of the reviews. I settled on the Actiontec units. It's just simply a plug and play unit. It works very well and at a faster speed than the wireless would have been. I'm very pleased with the product and the purchase price from B & H.

      One device in the first kit received was DOA, it was promptly replaced by B&H. When it was finally put to use, it worked for a few days. Then the link would no longer happen. We replaced it with another vendor adapter which worked correctly, this confirmed that the choice of the power outlet was fine, since it has to be on the same circuit so we thought that was the problem originally, but the new unit worked ever since. Several monts later, we tried the Actiontec unit elsewhere, again, it linked for the major part of the day but that was it, the next day, it refused to link ever after.

            Using our power wiring to extend our internet coverage 100 yards to our "guest house" is the perfect solution. A power passthrough would be an improvement.

              I have always wanted to add Internet in my basement (man cave) but wasn't able to run a wire. This product was so easy to hook up and now I am able to watch movies from my T via Blue Ray.

                        I am using this product on a Raspberry Pi device which is downstairs in my living room. My wireless router is upstairs. I am getting very fast, reliable connections and speeds so far without any problems. I chose a Powerline adapter because the wireless sometimes choked on HD video connections. It doesn't anymore.

                        Initially, my Raspberry Pi would not connect. I tried swapping out the ethernet cable with another one and it connected fine. Try this if you have problems.

                          Our router is located in another building and this allow us Internet service in the church. Plug it in and go, no software needed.

                          Needed this before we spend mad money on repeaters.
                          Just got another one for our Pastors house.

                            Plug the units into separate AC outlets, connect your modem/router at one end and your device at the other end and you are DONE! No setup, no problem, works right out of the box. More products should be this way, kudos to ActionTec.
