5 out of 5 eggsAwezome device..

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: I couldn't wait to write a review for this device.
Is amazing and for the price I paid I will definitely buy more once goes back on sale again. The installation was so smooth. No device could be easier. Just connect network cable to router and plug into AC line.

Cons: None so far. Hope it will last forever

Other Thoughts: A hardwired network line wherever you need it. Even on your basement. I was concern that I don't have many AC outputs available by my router so i used an power strip and it still works without any issue. Connection speed is very decent.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product!

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Almost zero loss from a wired connection. Gets the same speeds as my office computer connected directly to the router/modem 25 down and 5 up. Now i can throw away the netgear usb wifi dongle that dropped the connection every other minute. I was pulling my hair with the wifi. This will provide a solution for all my htpc and consoles for streaming to each other. Got it on sale for $30 which was an awesome price to try it out. I had my doubts about powerline but now with a hands on i cant believe I went so long without it!

Cons: I didn't buy them sooner. No real cons they do what they are advertised to do and do it well, no chance of dropping a signal with it.

Other Thoughts: Im going to buy another pair for my additional htpc and ps3.

No real cons they do what they are advertised to do and do it well, no chance of dropping a signal with it.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Connection, Fast & great price

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: My previous problem with power-line Ethernet systems has been variability of connection. These are rock solid.
They go from the den on first floor (South) to radio room/ office on second floor (North). These two locations are on different circuit breakers but the same power panel. Have a 600 watt amateur (Army MARS) HF radio off same circuit. Price was really low!

Cons: None so far. Warranty is short , 1 year. My Black, WD HD is 5 years for comparison.

Other Thoughts: When I first installed them, they did not work! I then removed them and placed both units plugged in back to back, 1/2 " apart on an extension cord. I then hit the crypto reset buttons for 2 seconds, PER THE INSTRUCTIONS. Worked perfect! Then I moved them back to installation locations; den on first floor (South) to radio room/ office on second floor (North). Now work perfect - solid.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible...

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Easily connected, just slow

Cons: Horrible throughput... Before I upgraded to AT&T gigapower (300 MBps up and down) the speed was fine. Now that I’ve upgraded light years beyond my previous internet connection I can’t get these adapters to go above 40 MBps. Tried same room outlets 5 feet apart, same room same outlet, different rooms directly above each other with the similar results. Tech support is useless, talked to two people and currently on hold to speak with a supervisor. The funny thing is this is advertised at 500 MBps, but the specs say the RJ-45 port is 10/100. I’m no IT expert but I’m pretty sure when the connection maxes at 100 MBps that you are not going to exceed that.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks quite well

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Easiest way to get network to remote parts of a house. Plenty fast enough connection for streaming HD video too. Just plug in and you're good to go. I also found that more of these used together improve things. I have 4 in my house now.

Cons: I have seen them quit once in a while. Unplugging them and plugging them back in makes them work again. Fortuantely it's rare that this happens.

Other Thoughts: One thing folks need to keep in mind on these is that they only work if your outlets are all on the same "side" of your electrical service. All homes have two 110V lines feeding from the pole. That's why you see two rows of breaker switches. One line on one side and the other on the opposite side. If you plug in one of these extenders in a plug and another in a plug that might be on the other side of the breaker box, it won't work. The fix here would be to have an electrician rewire your breaker box to put all outlets on one side only.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Wi-Fi Replacement

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: The DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini kit is just what the doctor ordered for our HTPC. We live in a three story townhouse and the 802.11n signal always struggles to get to our HTPC in the opposite corner of the house, two floors down, which tends to lead to buffering and inferior quality with Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, etc.

The DHP-309AV kit fixes all of that. It really is as easy as plugging it in, pushing a button to get the two talking to each other and then plugging in the ethernet cables.

A quick Speedtest.net run shows there is zero loss between the adapters, getting 18MB/s down and 2MB/s up with a ping of 26ms, just like the PCs wired directly to the router. It doesn't get any better than that on our cable connection, literally.

Cons: Works best plugged directly into an outlet. Using an extension cord or power strip does not work as well. In fact, the power strip I tried (a brand new, well rated Belkin strip) didn't work at all. If available, you'll want to use a dedicated wall outlet.

The supplied ethernet cables are quite short, approximately 3 ft long.

Other Thoughts: As mentioned in the Cons, the PowerLine kit works best when both are plugged into the wall directly. It did not work at all through a surge protector, but does work acceptably well through a cheap extension cord. It is able to max out our cable connection up and down through the cord.

If you don't have an outlet right next to where you're using them, you should consider buying a longer ethernet cable so you don't have to use an extension cord for the PowerLine adapter.
