5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine in an old house!

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: I wanted to get better speeds from the basement of our inner-city row home to the third floor. Our house was build in 1906 and is wired with a combination of knob-and-tube and modern wiring. It took a bit of fussing with the button on the side of these units, but once I figured it out they have been much faster than a wireless signal and have consistently connected.

Cons: I wish they were a bit smaller. I'd also like to see the setup guide / notes printed on the units themselves.

Other Thoughts: Note that you have to have an Ethernet cable plugged into each of these units for them to communicate with one another. This is due to the fact that they enter a power saving mode when no Ethernet signal is detected.

5 out of 5 eggsDoes The Job

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: * Just plug it in and it works. No tech knowledge needed.
* Speeds are good enough for internet access of nearly any speed.

Cons: * Speeds are lower than advertised, but still plenty good for most purposes.

Other Thoughts: While the speeds were lower than advertised, I'm sure this is highly dependent on the electrical wiring of the location installed.

5 out of 5 eggsSecond set bought

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: These adapters are priceless. Plug both into the wall, computer into one then the modem/router into the other. Hit the "encrypt network" button to secure the connection through power lines. 35 Mbps down and 6 Mbps up for each device connected and 0% packet loss. Highly recommend to replace wireless networking issues with interference and packet loss.

Second set purchased since it was a little more than a single unit, and I have a spare for other future devices.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWorks As Expected

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: * Simple to setup, but more advanced configuration available, if you want it.
* Works as expected
* Offers decent level of encryption
* Has Pass-Through for electrical outlet

Cons: * Could be faster, but much better than what I had.

Other Thoughts: On sale at $25 for a pair, I think this is a very reasonably priced network solution.

I used these to replace some old ZyXel PL-100 units that were advertised as 85 Mbps units. These PLA4111 units are advertised as 200 Mbps. Based on my testing, these new units are 3.67 times faster without using encryption (the PL-100s didn't support encryption, so I wanted to test the same way). All other factors were kept identical when conducting the test (same electric outlets, switch ports, computers, etc.). The only difference was the actual power line adapter units. Based on this test, the new PLA4111 units are far more improved than the advertised speeds would indicate.

That being said, my N300 WiFi router was able to perform the same network test almost 40% faster than these new PLA4111 units. Considering 300 is 50% faster than 200, that again seems to be reasonable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked!

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: It was easy to set up and pretty much plug and play, No software required, Nice to have the pass through AC socket for plugging in something else such as a power strip.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Set up for two older people in house that wasn't wired for internet and who bought a new computer without built in WiFi for a 2nd office. Works well, they're happy, I'm happy.

1 out of 5 eggsLow performance

This review is from: ZyXEL 200Mbps Fast Ethernet Powerline Wall-Plug Pass-thru Adapter, Starter Kit - 2 Units (PLA4111KIT)

Pros: Does not block your outlet. That's about all

Cons: Well, it said up to 200Mb/s so I thought I should get maybe 100Mb/s. Heck I would be happy with even 60Mb/s, it will still be faster than my wireless. But all I managed to get is about 20Mb/s. Now my house is relatively new, about 12 years old with copper wiring and not big at all so the distance between the units was probably less than 50ft. Yet I got red link quality light and the 20Mb/s or so I mentioned. Returning and may be trying one of the 500Mb/s units from another manufacturer.
