An absolutely terrible product on all levels.
If I were to dream up a terrible product, this would probably exceed my expectations. For starters, the device requires an awful Windows-only GUI to pair the security keys with each device. Forget about using these if you're a Mac/Linux/BSD user and want any security on the adapters. Secondly, there are error messages during configuration that have zero definition of what they mean. Things like (paraphrasing, I don't remember the exact error): "RMQ Status Error!!!" Uh. Ok. As a network engineer of +10 years, I don't believe I've ever encountered such an error. Certainly none with so many exclamation points or with such a scary and ill-defined message. Next, let's move on to the devices themselves... after battling with them for over 4 hours, I finally managed to sneak up on them and get them to play nice with each other. Yay! Go into the other room where the TV is to see if Netflix on demand is there. It is! Great. Success! Turn off TV to have dinner before girl (who has patiently waited 'til now) gets steaming hot... and dinner gets cold. Turn TV back on. No Netflix. No network. Wha? That's right. In less than one hour off, the devices lost their configuration. How did these devices ever make it into production? Oh, and this wasn't a case of a bad pair, as I bought four of these piles of garbage and had the same issues pairing any two of them together. Needless to say, mine went back. One last thing: if despite my warnings you still purchase these, they *must* be plugged directly into the wall and may not into a power strip or UPS, but that's the case with all of these type of units as far as I know.
