Pros:

I bought this so I'd be able to stream Netflix movies and have broadband supplied to my DirecTV receiver without having the internet modem located in the living room. When I had DirecTV installed last month, I moved my modem into the living room, sacrificing my upstairs home office internet access speed temporarily, until I made time and $$ to have a planned CAT6 internal cabling installation. I was using the home office computer with WiFi temporarily. After reading reviews of the ZyXel powerline adapters, I got this kit, hoping that I'd be able to place the modem upstairs in the office again, and still have enough speed in the living room for Netflix/DirecTV broadband.

I received the kit today, and am happy to report that no software installation is necessary; I just plugged the 4-port adapter into a wall outlet in the living room, the single port adapter into the home office wall outlet, moved the modem back upstairs and plugged in the ethernet cables accordingly...solid green lights on everything, and my download speeds downstairs for Netflix HD streaming are identical to when the modem was directly cabled to the Netflix device! My home office internet speeds are back to wired broadband speeds, no wiring nightmares downstairs in the living room.

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

See pros above. I bought this kit at another site (1 day special at $35 less than Newegg's price), although I normally buy from Newegg.
