TRENDnet Logo
 

TRENDnet's 200Mbps Powerline AV Adapter Kit with Bonus Outlet, model TPL-307E2K, and comes with everything you need to build an HD Powerline network from any electrical outlet. Connect the first adapter to your network and plug the second adapter into any outlet on your electrical system for instant high speed network access.

Never lose an electrical outlet with the built in outlet on the front of the adapters. The compact housing does not block adjacent electrical outlets. A noise filter maintains optimum connection speeds when household devices create electrical background noise.

The adapters will automatically connect with no installation required-TRENDnet recommends pressing the 'Sync' button to automatically change default encryption keys. Use up to 6 adapters to network devices in different rooms without running new cabling. Power Save mode reduces power consumption by up to 80%. Quality of Service technology prioritizes video, audio, and online gaming. Advanced AES encryption secures your network. This adapter is ideal for use in buildings that interfere with wireless networking signals.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, still strong after 1 year of uses

Pros: Works as expected, easy set up, very reliable, and great for extending my network to my basement where i have my office. As I recall, I was happy about the price, too.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: None. Great purchase!

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: stronger connection than wifi.. when it works.
I'd had planned on using this to connect to my htpc upstairs in my bedroom while the router is in the basement. The plug works fine in the bedroom, but the one connected to the router is inconsistent, therefore I lose connection upstairs.

Cons: As stated earlier, the adapter is very inconsistent. The connection works fine at first, but after a few minutes or so, the connection is cut. I check in the basement how it's working and the adapter shows absolutely no activity. I have to unplug and replug the adapter every time it stops working. So far my experience is very disappointing because I see a lot of potential.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Anonymous,

Sorry for any inconveniences it may have caused you for unstable connections. I am just wondering if you can get stable connections when both are used in the bedroom or elsewhere before one is moved close to your router in the basement. Also, you can swap adapters to see if it makes differences or not. Please ensure not to plug into power surge protector, GFI outlets, UPS or close to any appliances if possible. If it still doesn't help please contact me directly at Adrian@trendnet.com with “Newegg TPL-307E2K” in the subject line and I will respond immediately to assist. I am hoping to hear from you soon and help to restore your faith in TRENDnet.

Warmest regards,

Adrian

1 out of 5 eggsGreat when it works the other 90% of the time...

Pros: Allows network access from anywhere in your home without the worry of thick walls blocking a wifi signal or installing new cabling.

Cons: Constantly loses sync. After running into several issues the first couple of months and contacting tech support I was able to get it to hold its sync for about a month before having to re-sync. Then the utility they had me download would not recognize the adapter at all. So now less than a year out I'm left with 2 dead adapters. You should have have to re-sync every 2 weeks to 1 month to access the internet.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Jon,

Please accept our apologies for this matter. Please contact me directly at adrian@trendnet.com with "Newegg TPL-307E2K Product Review" in the subject line and I will assist you to RMA your product ASAP. I look forward to working with you directly in hopes to restoring your faith in TRENDnet products.

Warm Regards,
Adrian.E, TRENDnet Sales Team

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest way to extend a network

Pros: This is a great device if you are trying to extend your home network, either wirelessly (AP plugged directly into your router via powerline) or just a direct connection via the powerline. Too many people try to extend their wireless networks by placing a repeater somewhere in the middle, but then all you are doing is relaying a weak signal.
This device is pretty much Plug-and-Play. I am renting, so I do not have the luxury of running cables through the house, nor would I want to with this capability. It has been completely full-proof - full duplex and the lowest throughput I have experienced (even with the dryer, plasma TV, and dishwasher running) is 100Mb.
Worth every penny!

Cons: Somewhat bulky

Other Thoughts: Because of the "Bonus Outlet" this device doesn't even use up available plugs. I plugged my Access Point (AP) directly into the Powerline adapter and can even move it from outlet to outlet if I need to move the AP to a different part of the house for some reason (say a picnic in the backyard - where I wouldn't normally leave the AP, but want to have it available during the picnic).

5 out of 5 eggsThankyouthankyouthankyou

Pros: Simply put, I LOVE THESE THINGS. I know Newegg reviews can run the gamut from 1 egg to 5 eggs on the same product, but I must say I don't get the negative reviews on here.

Here's my story. In 2004 I bought a new wireless media server to stream music and movies from my office to my living room (diagonal across the entire house -- about 80 feet, 140 electrical wirepath). For the past 8 years I've tried repeaters, extenders, mediaserver to router connections, etc but could never get a wifi signal consistent enough to avoid hiccups. I could've run an ethernet cable through the attic, but i have a notoriously cramped attic -- plus cables have been known to fail, in which case I'd be stuck troubleshooting or running a replacement.

Well, things came to a head last year, when I went all WAV/FLAC in my music collection from MP3s. All of a sudden it wasn't just XVid/DivX that were skipping -- it was my music, which should have sounded so good broadcast losslessly but instead sounded like my kid with hiccups. Mostly it was the inconsistency that killed me -- it would work great during the day, but at night it would die when the rest of the family or neighborhood came on wifi. In desperation I tried these out.

Wow! Plug into office outlet. Plug into living room outlet. Switch mediaserver from wifi to wired. Bingo. DivX films and shows that skipped for years now run perfectly. Transcoded FLAC to WAV music? Flawless. I've owned the Powerline AVs less than a week, but I couldn't be happier.

Cons: None so far. Price was great too.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy networking

Pros: Really easy to setup, aka plug and play.
Speed is nice, not as much as can do a wireless N
I bought them to link my garage to the house network and plugged an AP in the garage.
Wireless was not an option for this link.

Cons: None so far

4 out of 5 eggsMixed bag

Pros: Simple setup, works without using the software or CD.
Good throughput. I moved a 1 GB ISO in 4 minutes over a short distance in the house, and the same file took 4:25 at the far end of my property, through two breaker boxes and 200 feet more cabling, and a 100' extension cord.

Cons: Ordered two sets. One of the 4 adapters is DOA. I am RMAing tomorrow.

Other Thoughts: I will add an additional review after some experience.

5 out of 5 eggsIt simply works

Pros: Simple plug in and use. No problems.

I have my router and one module in my living room. The other module is in my basement for my X-box 360. I can stream netflix in HD, no trouble.

Cons: The software seems useless in my opinion. Not sure what it is for. Still trying to figure it out.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Well

Pros: Easy to use. Plugged in one to the wall connected the ethernet to router. Plugged the other in the room where my desktop is and plugged in the ethernet. Worked straight off. Boom, wired internet connection for my desktop. Quick and easy set-up is good. No need for the software if you don't want it.

Cons: Software is kind of lame. You have to have passwords for your devices which are printed on a label on the device. Tried entering the passwords into the software, but I constantly get a "Password is Invalid" error when I've checked, re-checked, and checked again that I've got it right. Also, my sync function doesn't seem to be working correctly, but it's no biggy. I don't think anyone near me has these, so I'm not too worried about someone hopping onto my network.

Clunky software/password issue/and sync function issue takes the egg off for me.

Other Thoughts: It works. Works well. I'm getting transfer speeds well above my rated internet speed which is exactly what I was looking for. I'm not worried about streaming over my network, I just wanted a wired connection for my desktop.

You get to keep your outlet there too and it DOES NOT block adjacent outlets at all. So feel free to plug this in, plug your powerstrip back into it and then keep your other outlet free too.

If you're looking to stream lots of stuff over your network, these probably aren't for you. If you want a wired connection for your computer then get these.
