Simple install - easy to use. Rocks when you want a wired connection for noisy servers hidden in the basement but don't want to run Ethernet through walls and ceilings. Gives me additional ports at the router (3 more after Internet) and four ports in the remote location. Love the product and speeds seem just fine.

-Mike quote

Device really needs a duel channel router for performance. Otherwise, should be pretty good on thru-put. Will test it after acquiring one.
