Ease of Use


by Dougall on 9/15/2010

It works stupid easy. I have docsis 3.0 with Comcast. With 802.11n wireless I was getting 16Mb. That jumped to 47Mb, after switching to the powerline router. I just plugged it in and it worked. No software required. It works with almost any network setup. Mine... Internet - Apple Airport Extreme - WD Powerline router - Linksys switch

It just works

by A customer on 11/8/2010

I am pretty tech-savvy, but I think even a tech-phobe could make this work. Plug in one box to the wall and your internet connection (router). Plug the other box into the wall and your PC (or any other box that needs internet). This particular install was a Quest DSL connection to a Mac. Didn't see any speedup over the WiFi we were using, but it is a lot more reliable (WiFi commonly dropped or reduced signal strength).
