NETGEAR XE104-100NAR Powerline 4-port Ethernet Adapter Up to 85Mbps

3 out of 5 eggs OK but not the greatest 12/06/2011

This review is from: NETGEAR XE104-100NAR Powerline 4-port Ethernet Adapter Up to 85Mbps

Pros: Easy setup, just plug it in and you are ready to go. I do a lot of side repair work and these are great for when I'm working on a computer on my kitchen table that doesnt have wifi.

Cons: 85mbits is very optimistic for performance. They may have got that in a test lab, but in real world you will not get close to that. I live in a brand new house (2 years old) and the best I get is about 5megabits, and thats on the same circuit breaker. I get about the same performance across different breakers in the house.

Encryption software doesnt work on Windows 7 very well.

Flakey performance when they get warm, so if you have them plugged in the back of a desk with poor air circulation you will have reset issues..
