    ZyXEL PLA5456KIT reviews

    PLA5456KIT AV2000 HomePlug AV2 Pass-Thru Powerline 2-Port Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (2-Pack) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Option For an Xbox 360 I used this to hook up my now older Xbox 360 since it does not have a WiFi connection. I didn't want to deal with installing a network line and didn't want a cord running across the floor either, so this was a good option. Basically just plug the units into the wall and then attach the network cables and your done. I didn't have to sync anything or push any buttons, since I didn't elect to encrypt yet as I wanted to see if they work. Powered on the Xbox 360 and it started updating (been off for a year) and didn't appear to have any connection issues. My installation is in a house with a single electric box, the two units are installed on different breaker circuits.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was sceptical. I was wrong This works for me! Extremely easy to setup. Almost the same speed as a computer directly connected via Ethernet, to my home router. I had a laptop in my shop ( separate building rom my home ) that had OK WiFi coverage. I'd use it for YouTube and Pandora. Both YouTube and Pandora would sometimes stop or stutter. Not anymore...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, easy setup, good speed I have 4 units in the house all spread pretty far apart and the speeds are pretty good. I use them to connect security cameras. I had been using them wirelessly but the connection was flakey. It seems rock solid with these adapters. I imagine a lot will depend on your specific situation - home wiring, distance between units - but in my case they work as advertised I'm happy with them.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked for me I wanted to hook up my bedroom TV with TiVo Mini to my TiVo Roamio Plus in my living room without running wires all over the house. I am getting the great signal indication on the device and I can successfully watch my TiVo without running any wires.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and super fast delivery. The HomePlug devices worked exactly as described. I simply plugged them in, made the appropriate ethernet and PC connections and I had fast internet service at a remote PC without having to run cable throughout the house. Delivery was the very next day as promised.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for what I needed I had fiber run to my house, and the entry point, where the supplied modem/router was on a different floor than my PC.� I got these with the hope that I could connect my PC to the router without having to run hard-wired connections (which I'd like to do, but on my own schedule).� Anyway, I plugged them in and hooked them up, synced them, and....nothing.� My PC could connect, but no internet connection.� After some fiddling around, the solution I found was that the router was not assigning my PC an IP address, so I had to set a static IP address on the router copying the gateway information from another computer.� After that, the adapters connected right away.� I have a gigabit connection, and through these, I can max out at around 300mpbs download speed.� Shortly after I installed these, I had to change the room that I had my PC in.� I unplugged, moved everything, and plugged back in and it was connected immediately.� I would easily have given these 5 stars if I hadn't had trouble getting them connected, they were the perfect solution to my problem.� Someone who isn't familiar with DHCP/Static IP might have some set-up difficulties if they run into the same problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hardware, poor user guide once it's up and running it performs well... but the setup/user guide leaves lots of room for improvements... thought I had a defective pair that did not transmit/receive/pair till I try several combinations ... setup guide not very helpful in critical details. Mention of utility program to change ID names on units for extra security.... again poor documentation and the program does not display/respond intuitively. 5 stars for hardware, only 2 stars for docs.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I plan to buy more of these I needed to extend my network about 75' to the other end of the house. Running cable would be very difficult if not impossible. The ZyXLE HomePlug AV2 solved the problem. Setup was very easy and performance has been rock solid. Having two Ethernet ports was a big bonus. I saved having to also add a switch. There are a couple of other locations where I need an Ethernet connection and I'm seriously considering using the AV2 for them.
