Powerline Ethernet Adapters by ZyXEL

by Norm on 1/29/2014

Placed my order with routine shipping and received product VERY quickly. Opened the package, plugged the two units in, hit the sync button on them and had a solid Ethernet link set up and operational. Units have been working great for over a week now. This saved me from trying to find a pathway to fish wire from one side of the house to the other.
