Create a Network Connection Anywhere in Your Home
By harnessing the electrical wiring in your home to transmit data, the Powerline lets you create network connections practically anywhere in your home, in places where a wireless signal can't reach and where it would be difficult to run an Ethernet cord. This network adapter kit is perfect for connecting game consoles, network storage devices, Slingboxes, and more.

Plug-And-Play Gets You Going Quick and Easy
The Powerline Network Adapter Kit is a snap to set up. This kit includes two XET1001 Adapters so you'll have everything you need to create a single connection. Just plug one adapter into an available electrical socket near your router, and connect your router to it. Then plug the second adapter into any electrical socket that's located near the device you want to network. When you connect your device into the adapter, it will be connected to your network.

It's as simple as that. There's no software to install, no passwords to remember, and no configuration whatsoever. And you can easily create more network connections throughout your home by simply installing additional XET1001 adapters.

The adapter is HomePlug 1.0 compliant, making it compatible with the NETGEAR XE104, XEPS103, XE102, WGXB102, and other HomePlug 1.0 devices.

Fast, Secure Network Connections
The Powerline XET1001 Adapter features speeds of up to 85 Mbps, fast enough for media streaming, downloading large files, and other bandwidth-heavy applications. Data is encrypted so you can be sure your private data is secure.

For added convenience, the Powerline features three LEDs that give information on power, network status, and Ethernet connections at a quick glance.

Each NETGEAR XET1001 Adapter measures 1.6 x 2.8 x 3.9 (WxHxD). The NETGEAR 85 Mbps Powerline Network Adapter Kit XETB1001 is backed by a one-year warranty.

What's in the Box
Two Powerline adapters, two Ethernet cable, installation guide, setup CD, warranty card, support and information card.

Your Prayers Have Been Answered!

OK, this story dates back about two years or at least it feels that long. I have a long ranch style home and Comcast cable with a router. My issue has always been getting one of our three Xbox consoles to connect and all three from getting kicked off periodically. Needless to say, the one console that has a hard time connecting is the farthest away from the router. I would say it is 60 to 70 feet away and up stairs. So let's go through the check list of things I purchased that did not work:

Routers -
Linksys G, Linksys G MaxRange, and Linksys N routers.
Belkin N+N Dual Band
Same problem. Bad of no connection to Xbox Live.
And yes, I purchased the new Xbox N adapter and it improved the signal but it did not fix the problem.

What a failed to tell you is that about 1 month into the problem a guy at Best Buy told me about the PowerLine adapters that use the wiring in your home to send your network connection to any outlet where you plug in a second PowerLine adapter and connect something to your network. At the time, it was over $100 and it sounded like crazy talk, so I dismissed the idea. Stupid of me bigtime.

Yes, you guessed it. After months of sitting up late reading, trying this and trying that, talking to dang technical support reps. from third world countries that have no clue how to speak English, I finally went back and purchased the PowerLine adapter.

Before I tell you how that went, one more major deal I learned along the way. Attention Comcast Customers......how about a free N router newsflash?

OK. So I bought 4 of these for Christmas - ostensibly to plug in my kid's XBox, but also to connect our 2 DirecTV receivers.

These worked great out of the box. However, today there is weather & some issues popped up - just so everyone is aware.

- These will work if plugged in near your electrical devices. However, if there is "noise" (meaning you plug it in the same outlet near your big screen TV, surround sound, etc.) it won't receive data (thinks you're not connected to the internet). They were working fine until today when "noise" interference knocked them out. Best advice is buy yourself a long ethernet cord if you have to & plug it in away from rest of appliances.

- Download speeds are MORE than fast enough - IF you have 1 plugged into your router and 1 receiving. Once you go up to 2 or 3, they slow down, not ALTOGETHER, but streaming media becomes "wait for it to finish" before watching. Like today, for the 1st time, I reset my wireless network & once I only had 1 plugged in, I downloaded an episode of iCarly on demand for my daughter & it finished in < 1 min. Once I had all 3 plugged in again, it took closer to 5 min's.

- Be careful when devices tell you to "reboot" your router. My 15 yr old was told to do this by his XBox. Unfortunately, that was the LAST thing he should've done. It took me several hours to get the router back on-line (discovered that once he rebooted, I needed to reset the security key - otherwise, no internet, no devices, no nothing). These things SHOULD be plug & play. If you have all 3 lights on, they're working - don't reset / reboot things.

Otherwise, we're back on line.

So, my advice is - if you want "streaming", plugging in 1 of these will do the trick. Otherwise, pay more for faster devices.

And, if you use one of these things, make sure it's plugged into an outlet that ISN'T the same one as your TV, sound, etc.

Recommended.

I bought this product to provide an internet connection to a non-wireless device in my house which was not near an actual Ethernet wall jack. The long cable running thru 2-3 rooms gets old pretty fast. But I will warn all you prospective buyers out there that the capacity of this product is severely limited according to the way that your house is WIRED. My house was built in 1990 and the electrical system is to code, but unless the two wall outlets which were being used to 'share' the internet connection were on the same BREAKER, the connection was either nil or so intermittent as to be effectively useless.

After realizing that the system was not going to provide the connection that we wanted between the two places we had hoped, we, being the geeks we are, tried to get it to work with other outlets all over the house to see what the potential was. This is how we determined that only connections between outlets on the same circuit were connecting (but even those were slow).

I've had good experiences with Netgear in the past and have no axe to grind with them, but this device(s) is still performing like... well, NEW technology; which is exactly what it is.

You've been warned.

Verified Purchase
I agree with a previous reviewer that this was literally easier to set up than it was to take out of the box. Just plug it in to your router, and then plug into your wall. No cd's that don't work with Mac. No 1800 support line in India. It just works. We use this with both a PC and a MAC, with a Linksys Router. Signal issues, no more! I highly recommend this product!
