Cons: This is advertised by Cisco/Linksys as being able to work anywhere in your house. It does not. After several hours with Linksys tech support trying to get this thing to work from 1 outlet to an adjacent 1 I asked the tech if we were able to actually get the thing to work where it was, if it would work upstairs where I wanted to use it on a different circuit.
Other Thoughts: Would not recognize both adapters on same circuit unless both were connected to the router via rj45 (VerizonFios supplied Actiontec router). Could not get this to work after several hours with tech support. Gave up after realizing that this would not perform the way it was advertised. Even the fine print at the bottom of the product tour says it will work on all power outlets in an electrical system. I purchased this after watching the newegg tv on powerline networking with the guy from Qualcomm where he says how great these things are and how surge protectors and different circuits don't affect performance of these devices anymore like it did a few years ago. The idea is great and I could definitely use this as my router is in one corner of the house and I have very weak signal at the opposite corner upstairs. Even if you have only one circuit in your house or office, I would avoid this item. I'll have to read some reviews of other brands before I try again. I tried this even though there were no reviews on the product here at newegg. Taking one for the team. Avoid this product.
