Great way to extend your network!

Pros: I have a room in my house where I simply couldn't get a good wifi signal from my primary broadband wifi router. I tried 2 different kinds of regular wifi repeaters, and never could get a reliable signal in that room. I finally got this netgear powerline wifi extender PLW1010-100NAS, and it was an immediate success. The basic setup is very easy. Plug the small powerline adapter into the wall near your router, connect a network cable from your router to the powerline adapter, plug in the powerline wifi adapter wherever you need the wifi signal. Then you get it all connected securely by pressing a button on each adapter for 2 seconds, the adapters connect to each other, and you're all set. Very simple.

Even connecting to the wifi signal is simple, using the security code helpfully taped to the powerline wifi extender itself. Of course, you need to immediately go to the wifi setup page and change the setup admin password and the wifi passwords, but it took me less than 5 minutes to go through all the wifi setup menus to change the wifi SSID name, passwords, set the time zone, etc. Which brings me to the thing I didn't like about the setup instructions...

Cons: The included manual seems to indicate that just plugging in the adapters will get you an immediate powerline connection, but it won't be secure. I found that this was not the case. Just plugging the adapters into the wall did not result in a successful connection. I had to follow the procedure to set up a *secure* powerline network, pressing the button on each adapter for 2 seconds, before I had any network connection at all. You'll want to do that anyhow otherwise anyone with a powerline adapter could get right on your network, however the manual seemed to indicate that this was purely optional. This is a big omission especially now when network and computer security is so important. Likewise, the wifi setup page in the included manual told me how to get connected for the first time and get into the wifi setup menus, however there was zero emphasis on changing any of the passwords! The default factory password is - guess what - "password"! Yup. So again, minus one star for the manual making zero suggestions on getting in there to change the passwords. This is the very first thing that anyone setting up a new router does, yet it's not highlighted in the manual.

Overall Review: But how FAST? is it? Fast enough to stream HD video from my broadband router, over powerline, then over wifi in a room that previously had zero network. That's fast enough for me. Numbers... My main computer wired directly to my broadband router gets 120Mbps download speeds on the speedtest site. Speedtest reported 55Mbps download speeds, over powerline and wifi using this Netgear PLW1010-100NAS with only 11ms ping times. That ought to be plenty good for streaming or gaming.

So yes, I strongly recommend both this product specifically, and netgear's line of powerline adapters in general. This is not the first netgear powerline product I've purchased and used, and I've found all of them to be fast and reliable network adapters

very good wireless speed

Pros: easy to setup and use
my friends wife was constantly complaining her rogers wireless modem was dis-connecting

Does The Job

Pros: The instructions were straight forward and easy to follow for the physical connections. Since I've gotten this up and running, so far, the product has worked as advertised. I have extended both my wired and wireless networks using this product. I recommend this product.

Cons: Setup didn't work until I power cycled my router.

Ultimate Option For Big Houses

Pros: Solution, easy set up, outstanding speed.

Cons: Cost, Unable to use more then one, Cant use same network name, Netgear support is a joke!

Overall Review: The biggest unknown variable is how old your electric panel is. Seems as though if over 15 years this will NOT work. Units MUST be on same electric panel to function. Would be nice netgear if you could add more wireless units, lord knows I have tried.... so I guess if you have a modern house with 5000 ft of floor space with loft and stainless fixtures causing all kinds of dead spots would be nice to have a couple in use.

Other tgan that 1 bar dead spot now 5 bars pulling 80mb on air!!! Dropped my jaw and customers. Noted the wireless unit does get warm.

pleasantly surprised

Pros: Speed much better than expected. using testmy.net, got 30mbs down and 11mbs up. Service / router is 150mbs fios. A prior powerline ethernet setup was much slower. Was considering running cat5 in the the plaster and now will defer indefintely (big yay).

Cons: Print on back of the device was tiny, needed a magnifying glass to read.

Overall Review: Used in a NYC apartment. So was skeptical about wiring etc.
