Great Choice For Just Out Of Reach Areas 04/07/2014
These power-line adapters are super easy to set up with any system, essentially they plug in and work. No Wireing, Easy Setup with WPS. The wireless adapter which you can use as its own wireless access point or you can “clone” an existing wireless network by using the WPS feature on your wireless router, or if you prefer you can set the feature up using the setup disk provided which suprizingly enough does not require the installation of any software running directly from the mini cd. As far as Linux is concerned... no issues. Access to the device is available through your browser with the default user name of admin and default password of admin.
Windows Defender on my Windows 7 Ultimate system did however see the disk as a potential threat as it did turn off the firewall for access to the adapter, not a problem during setup but be aware that it does do this and you may need to restart the firewall after completing the setup. I still think the idea of a power pass-through feature on these devices would be a great addition. Being able to use these devices and still be able to plug-in your lamp to the same outlet would be nice.
Great choice for those “Just out of wireless reach” areas that are common in most homes. Especially in my turn of the century farmhouse whose walls are twice as thick as more modern dwellings. Wireless is always an issue and the old tin roof doesn't help either. My kitchen and one upstairs bedroom were added on after the building of the original house, so there is an outside wall that as far as wireless is concerned cuts them off from the rest of the house. This device allows devices in these two rooms to connect without dropping out from time to time, and the best part is that there were no wires to have to contend with. If I had not installed all my ethernet wiring years ago I would certainly have used these instead. So much time and effort saved with the use of these. I would recommend power-line networking to anyone that is adding networking to their existing home. New construction however, I would still go with a hardwired system simply to save on blocking outlets with these.
