I bought this for my home theater so that I could hook up all the internet-enabled components. I used to think that when a product was Ethernet-enabled that meant that you had to run 100 feet of Ethernet cable from your router, through the walls, and to your components. That sounded messy to me so I always looked for WiFi-enabled products. I initially thought about buying a bridge instead but my understanding is that the Powerline adapters were faster since they are a wired connection. I can't verify that but that is what I was told so double check.

I was also told that for the Powerline adapter kit to work, both outlets must be on the same circuit. I don't know about you but I am not an electrician and I really do not know what this means. So I just crossed my fingers, bought this product, and hoped for the best.

The product contains two adapters; one that you plug into an outlet by your router and another that plugs into an outlet wherever your other equipment is located. You also get two Cat5e cables which I find to be a little on the shorter side so you may want to buy a six foot or longer cable. There is no instruction manual included just a small diagram. Honestly, you don't need an instruction manual because the four-step diagram really sums up the installation process.

Here is what you do:

1. Plug the single port end into an outlet by your router
2. Connect it to a port on your router
3. Plug the other port near the other equipment
4. Connect this port to the port on the equipment

That's it, no settings to change and you will be online (assuming both outlets are on the same circuit.

Some of the reviewers on this site may be a little confused, as Amazon is selling three different types of Linksys Powerline units; two of them are wired units and one features a wireless extension mode of operation. Note the selection box that allows you to select single port, 4 port and wireless units. Most of the negative reviews seem to be directed at the wireless unit, although there are a few complaints about the units not working unless they are plugged into AC outlets connected to the same circuit breaker. That was not the situation in my large house. I tried the 4port WIRED unit in three different areas of an 8500 square foot house; each area was on its own AC sub-panel, obviously with different circuit breakers and different AC panels in use at each end of the powerline internet circuit.

The Linksys wired units worked perfectly for me in all three areas that I tried. I just plugged them in and was up and operating with a high speed wired internet circuit within about a minute. No configuration was required, as I am only using a pair of the Linksys units. I think the button on the side of the 4 port wired unit is used to configure pairs of these power line units if you are using more than one pair of them in your house. The manual is not too clear on this.

I didn't try the wireless units, but the wired 4 port unit worked great for me and is highly recommended if you have large distances to cover, or if you are experiencing wireless network interference (usually periodic signal dropouts or slow transmission speeds) from your neighbor's wireless routers.

I wanted a wired solution to various points in my house to get the full bandwidth of my cable modem, which can get > 50 Mbps download speed with a direct Ethernet cable connection to my router. The initial reviews I read about these devices sounded fairly good, so I purchased a few of them. My initial tests were ok. I could get 20-30 Mbps download speed, which was not the full bandwidth of my cable modem, but still slightly better than my WiFi connection speed. However, after using these powerline adapters for a period of a few weeks, I would notice that I would regularly (couple of times per hour) lose my Internet connection for 10-15 seconds while using Skype voice calls. I would also sometimes lose my connection while streaming Amazon video to my TV. I knew that these devices were the problem, because this never happened with WiFi.

I called Cisco/Linksys to try to troubleshoot the problem. Their only solution was to propose to send me a new device. But I had already purchased 6 of these and could reproduce the problem with any of them, so getting yet another device from Cisco was not going to solve my problem.

Luckily, I did some more research and found the Actiontec Ethernet to Coax adapters on Amazon. These devices work great. I can get a full 50 Mbps download speed (same as a direct connection to my router), and I never lose my Internet connection. Perhaps the Linksys powerline adapters are as good as it gets for powerline technology, but the Ethernet to Coax adapter is just a better solution (much faster speeds and more reliable connection). I have returned all of the powerline adapters to Amazon and am now very happy with the Actiontec adapters.

I plugged each adapter into power outlets in different rooms on different floors and the product worked immediately with no setup. It literally took one minute to connect the adapters to my wireless N router and to my PS3 and Dish Network receiver on another floor. The speed was solid enough to stream on-demand content, but I have not performed speed tests yet. Granted, I have only used this product for one day thus far, but so far it operates as advertised. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly everything was up and running. Will update this review should any problems arise in the future.
