    TRENDnet TPL-406E2K Reviews

    TPL-406E2K 500Mbps Compact Powerline AV Adapter Kit is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great but be careful with the setu I am using this adapter to connect a network media streamer that lacks Wi-Fi. It works very well once it is set up correctly, with no throughput issues or dropped connections. I had not realized how finicky the setup is. You cannot plug anything into the other open outlet on either side of the connection. A multiple outlet adapter or surge protector is also out of the question. As a result, the short Ethernet cables that come in the box may not be enough. I had to get a 15-ft cable from a local hardware store. I am deducting a point for the skimpy manual. It only has a few basic diagrams and does not make it clear how to avoid the initial problems that I had to deal with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug N Play Literally plug it in and go. I did install the TrendNet Powerline utility and upgraded one of the units firmware to the latest version. They have been used by my kids to stream Netflix, Hulu Plus etc for the last couple weeks and no issues noted. I am getting consistently between 135-160Mbps transfer. I do know that nothing stutters when streaming and so far we have 3 rooms using these devices (I bought 2 sets), even when we are all streaming at the same time. We also use them for our security camera's and they work well for that also.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expected issues; none found As other reviewers noted about this and other Powerline Ethernet adaptors, the type and location of the outlet is critical to success. That written, after connecting this it performed well. My computer's info showed it was sending data at the rate advertised. The only slowdown was of the Internet connection itself, but other than that it's a good alternative to hardwiring Cat5/6 cable to various points. Just make sure to read and understand the instructions--especially about creating a new password should this be in an area with multiple parties on the same electrical circuit or feed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Exactly as Advertised duplicate Note - duplicate review. 75 feet pushes WiFi to an extreme and greatly degrades performance, and I'm too lazy to pull 75 feet of Ethernet cable. Also, this Trendnet kit costs less than that much cable or a WiFi extender. Truly plug and play, the software just gives a little extra control over configuration options and isn't necessary for normal use. I'm completely satisfied with quality, installtion, and performance. Great value for the price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best yet Of course, time will tell, which is all too true when it comes to powerline networking: I've found the technology is more vulnerable than most. (Don't freak out. Firewire is more prone to burn outs than USB but it still rocks.) However, the new generation of fast powerline networking is the fastest yet, and this model is the most compact, and has feature-parity with the competition. Be careful timing that button push when pairing the units!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick! I tried the powerline approach after a wireless bridge just wouldn't work. I needed to get the 'net to my Samsung Smart TV and was getting a constant network interference error. (I'm sure this was the tv's fault and not the bridge.) So I tried this adaptor, and everything works great. It's super-fast with no dropouts. It was so easy to set up, I thought for sure something was wrong--just plug it in and go!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny My desktop computer is at the far end of the house and even after attempting to move the router, it didn't help with the signal and would get slow 1-2MBPS speeds. The setup of this product is simple. Tested the speed and now I get about 30+MBPS speeds for download. This is a major improvement and worth every penny.
