This is the upgraded version of Netgear's previous powerline offering. That model was advertised as 14Mbps but I never saw one run at that speed. This one is touted as 85Mbps and I was able to get a solid 45Mbps even with both units plugged into expansion strips (which Netgear warns against). Good choice for folks living in condos or apartments with too many neighbors already having interfering wireless networks. Included software is for diagnostics/security settings and only runs on Windows 2k/XP but the unit actually works with any computer OS that supports ethernet connections (Mac, Linux, older Windows versions).

Received the unit. Plugged it in. Acts just like a wired connection. Fastest connection I've had to my PC about 100ft away from my router... Great Product

Cure for WEAK WIRELESS

by Raymond on 9/27/2006

I bought this because one room in the house is really far away from the wireless router and the connection is not reliable. This device seems expensive up front but if it saves you from a long wire run, it will be money well spent. I put a hub on one end to support the three PCs in the 'game' room. FYI - This is a plug and go device with no setup required.
