I'm not lying, for me it was a plug and play thing to put this kit to work.
1.- I plugged the main adapter to the wall outlet, placed the ethernet cable between both my cable modem and the main adapter.
2.- I went to my room, plugged the remote adapter to the wall outlet.
3.- Turned on the wifi on my iPhone 5 and there it was, Internet in my room with full signal and speed.
4.- Connected my laptop to the remote adapter with a ethernet cable to configure the security access to my new network.
5.- All set
I even did a speed test using the iPhone to check if this type of connectivity might cause speed limitations and not, I've got the same results as I get when connecting directly to my provider's cable modem.
One thing you need to know is that these kits DO NOT work if you connect them to wall outlets that are not on the same electrical circuit. I got lucky that my living room's outlet is on the same circuit as my room's.
Hope this helps. Cheers.
Also, it generates a constant humming sound in my Logitech Z5500 surround system.
Very unpleasant experience.
* Extends network. It made a solid connection between the shed behind the house, and the living room. I'm not sure on the total bandwidth I get, but it's definitely plenty to use the full bandwidth from my internet connection (~24mbps).
* Cheap, especially compared to the cost of similar units a few years ago.
* The remote unit (the one that creates the wifi AP) tends to disconnect once a day. I'm not sure if it disconnects from the other unit, or if the wifi stops working, but once a day I open my computer (or phone) and am unable to get an IP address. A quick unplugging and plugging back in fixes the problem, and the device boots quickly. However, this is a pretty annoying issue.
* The smaller unit (the one that doesn't create the wifi AP) has a high-pitched whine. Even when mounted behind a bookshelf, I can still hear the noise.
Bottom line: Cheap, good, realiable, does the job.

And pre-set up is awesome. Will buy again. Works like a charm.
Plugged it in the two locations which are pretty far from each other and it works.
I needed to have wireless access in a back room and my router wasn't doing the job. Based on input from some IT pros, I decided to try this and it works! Read morePublished 22 months ago by Jbbrown
I don't know why, but WiFi is soaked up by our (lath and plaster) house. Or it's an ancient curse. So my kid the computer scientist looked at me, again, as though I were an idiot,... Read morePublished 23 months ago by Writer
