Customer Reviews of ZyXEL PLA4201 500 Mbps Mini Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter
I was skeptical that this product was actually going to work. I plugged 2 of them in and my network was up in minutes. The internet is now super fast since I'm off of a wireless connection upstairs.
Just plug it into any wall socket, connect your ethernet cable to your router and away you go. Plug in another in any room and attach the ethernet cable to your TV, DVD player, or other device and see speeds of at least 10-40Mbs.
I have been using this to extend my Internet to my basement. I paired it with the powerline AV 500 Mbps 4 port switch and it works perfectly. It was simply plug and play and I did not have to do any other tinkering. The cool thing about it is that it turns off automatically when not used. I would highly recommend this item.
