Customer Reviews of MegaPlug A/V 200 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapter & 4-port Hub
This works flawlessly, and is very simple to use. I simply plugged the 1-port device into a router and wall socket in one room, and plugged the 4-port device into a wall socket in another room and hooked-in a computer and printer. Everything worked without the slightest trouble, and it seems much more reliable than wireless in general (have not had to unplug/reset either device even once). The real test will be time, as I have had similar devices from Netgear and RocketFish in the past that "died" in less than two years. Although I have not had any issues with this yet, this type of product, in general, seems particularly sensitive to power anomalies and, by it's very nature, will not typically work well (if at all) when plugged into a UPS or surge protector.
