I bought two of the DHP-309AV kits and set up all 4 of the units with the same encryption key. I have one of them connected to my router, of course, and the other three are for a network printer, a DirecTV DVR receiver, and a desktop computer. These three network devices are at diverse locations in the house.

Setup is easy (but see below) and it's nice that each unit comes with an ethernet cable. The connectivity seems to be reliable and with adequate bandwidth.

I like the status LED's.

I really have only a couple of gripes. One is that I get a little bit of background noise on a recording system that is near the the unit connected to the router. Possibly if I got a longer ethernet cable and moved the unit to the other side of the room it would go away. For now I just unplug it from the wall when recording. This may not be a fault of these particular units, but rather one of the caveats of the technology in general, since (from what I've read) it basically turns your house wiring into a sort of broadcasting antenna.

The other is that this product is somewhat poorly documented. Only by reading lots of product reviews beforehand did I have a trouble-free setup. Here is what you need to know:
1) Initially set up the encryption key with the units on the same circuit. If you use two plugs in the same room you should be on the same circuit. Then you can move them anywhere in the house.
2) The button for encryption key setup should be pressed for no more than 2 seconds, not at least 2 seconds as the quick start guide implies.

Other tips:
1) Heed the warnings in the documentation and always plug the units directly into the wall.

I purchased this product because my wireless router was simply not offering enough signal strength to fully allow my PlayStation 3 to play comfortably online without any interruptions. The box includes two adapters, two blue ethernet cables, and product manual, quick start guide, and a CD. It's very easy to setup, and it works extremely well. Even from where the first adapter is plugged in, on the uppper level, I'm still able to get roughly 120 mbps to my PS3, which is suitable for HD video streaming. Overall, I would recommend this product for people who are having wireless unreliability or for large homes.
The only con I would give is that the first adapter that must stay plugged in to the router can get a tad hot and so can the other adapter, so I just unplug both of them when I'm not using them.

So, according to D-Link customer support, the "only problem" with these devices is that they have to be "on the same circuit" to connect.

That's the "only problem", huh? And were there any other problems at the play, Mrs Lincoln?

My house is about 3,000 sq ft and must have 15 separate circuits. The odds of any two rooms being on the same one are...long. In any decent-sized house, what are the chances that two arbitrary rooms will share the breaker? I mean, really?

So, useless.

The "worse than" part is this. The device has a "PowerLine LED" that's supposed to tell you "that the device is connected to the PowerLine Network." On both my units, this LED is glowing a pretty, steady green, which is supposed to mean not only that they are in communion, but are communicating at 80+ Mbps.

Turns out, not so much. According to D-Link tech support, all that LED is really saying is that the device is getting power.

Gee, I thought that's what the "Power LED" was for. Silly, silly me.

What a disappointing waste of time. I'll be requesting my return authorization pretty much the moment after I hit "return" on this review.

I wish I could give it zero stars.

ADDENDUM Turns out it's d-link tech support that's worse than useless, as is the documentation that accompanies the product. Thanks to the managing editor at SmallNetBuilder.com, I learned that PowerLine networks DO in fact work across circuits. He suggested that I reset the adapters to their factory settings and have another go.

Here's where d-link's marvelous documentation comes not play. The quick start that comes with the adapters says NOTHING about how to reset them.

Two problems on my wireless home network are a personal PC at great distance from the Access Point/Router [AP] and a heavy resource user in the form of a security DVR. After reading reviews re the PowerLine technology for extending an Ethernet circuit I bought this D-Link Starter Kit that was advertised to get up to 500 Mbps for devices connected to a router by bridging the distance through the house wiring. Before purchasing I called D-Link Technical Support and discussed the limitations of the equipment and the technology. I was told I could obtain nearly the same speed and signal strength for devices located far away from the router, AS LONG AS BOTH ADAPTERS WERE ON THE SAME ELECTRICAL PHASE. The Technician repeated and EMPHASIZED, the operating constraint was the PHASE of the wiring, not the circuit segments.

I understood his comments to mean, in modern house wiring two legs or phases are connected to the customer distribution panel from a utility transformer. Customers then distribute the wiring throughout the house for phase to ground circuits [120 VAC] and phase to phase circuit [240 VAC]. If BOTH ADAPTERS are ELECTRICALLY connected on the SAME PHASE, regardless of the individual circuit location, then the D-Link PowerLine Device will operate as advertised. Any OTHER connection WILL yield unpredictable or inoperable results.

Because the PC problem was in the section of my house that was electrically two distribution panels away from the AP, I was not too surprised that the PowerLine solution did not work. I WAS surprised with the results from connecting the DVR, which I determined WAS on the same phase as the adapter connected to the router.
