Buying ZyXEL PLA401v3 is the best investment I have ever made since right off the box it saved me tons of money avoiding the necessary to pull LAN cable to my backyard Florida room. Product worked seamless as it mentioned. No hassle with settings and extremely satisfied using the product.

This product has worked flawlessly since the day it was installed. I've never had to reset them or mess with them in any ways.
These Zyxel units worked great right out of the box. Both units found each other and worked with good speed to share internet and support online gaming.

Solves Low Signal WiFi problems7/12/2011
In our house, the cable internet drop and WiFi router are in the basement office room, and my daughter's bedroom and her Win XP laptop are up one floor and at the far end of the house. Her WiFi signal has always been marginal no matter what we did to improve it. Enter the ZyXEL Adapter set. I plugged one unit into the router, the other into her laptop, and both of course into nearby wall outlets. The units saw each other and began working right away. Very easy. And two months later, still no problems at all. A couple of caveats. 1- If you share electrical circuitry with other people (e.g., in some apartment settings), you will want to set up encryption between the units and that is somewhat more difficult. 2- To insure best results, make sure you can plug each ZyXEL into a wall outlet without going through a surge protector or power strip.
Great Solution for Townhomes/Condos5/23/2011
I live in a townhouse and am not able to snake cable through the walls or under the floors. I've been through several 802.11 wireless products and all were flaky - probably because of the number of other routers in the development. These hooked right up and gave me a solid 100Mbs connection. I'm going to do the whole house with these!
It was simple to hook up and it worked perfectly without any setup. Network speed was excellent. I highly recommend this product.
