For one thing, wireless range is only "not quite" to the end of my house and the gargage is out of the question. Signals are weaker the farther away you get. With several computers in the house and an xbox to boot,I was always looking for a way to make it better. I have bought 3 routers. The last one was the latest and greatest router. No change.
Wireless can be a nightmare to get to work right, and support is okay for about 90 days and then you are stuck out there on your own with a menu that looks like a space shuttle control panel.
Then, Eureka! I stumbled over the trendnet somehow. All problems solved. I plugged it in, hooked a cable from my router to it and plugged it in the wall. The only catch is that you cannot plug this into a powerstrip. It has to go right into the wall plug. I went downstairs and plugged the other one into the wall plug and connected my Kitchen laptop.
That's it. I have twice the speed of wireless (100mbs) and a solid 100% strength at all times. No dropped signals, no hassle with passwords (unless you want an in-house one). It comes with some software, but I didn't use it. No kidding!
I kicked myself for not getting one sooner and bought another set for my other computers. I even have a spare for when friends and family visit and want to use their laptops. I still have wireless for ipods, etc.
That was a year ago and I am still thrilled that I don't have to deal with complaints from everyone about how slow their wireless internet is.
I can't say enough good about this product.
I hope this review helps you decide. If you have any questions, comment on the review and I will get it in my email and see if I can help.
2 x Ferrite beads for my ethernet cables coming out of the adapters. They are cheap and they help eliminate radio frequency interference. A third one is optional, but I also put one on the outside/internet cable running into my router. On a side note, these worked great on getting rid of the white noise on my baby monitors.

my situation: before the powerline, i installed dd-wrt on a D-link 615 wireless router so i could use it as a repeater. it worked well when it did but once a day it would stop putting out a wireless signal or stall. restarting it once a day got very annoying. i looked into ethernet over coax but it was a bit more than i was willing to pay. i got the trendnet for $45 with amazon prime. the adapters are about 60 ft straight line apart, a few walls in between. speeds are slightly better than before. my adapter blinks orange.
1. Setup was simple. It didn't even require installing software. There was only the little bit of rearranging to free up nearby outlets to avoid power strips.
2. It came with two 5' patch cables.
3. The second computer is now as fast as the first. No more fighting for the "fast" connection!
None so far.
This was not a good solution for my problem. However, I have another RT-N12 configured as an access point, which means it is physically connected via Ethernet from its location in the attic to the basement where the main router is. (The cable runs alongside the furnace chimney.) The access point works beautifully. So I bought these powerline adapters to see if I could create a "virtual ethernet" run beween the closet and the basement.
No luck: I couldn't get a signal. I tried Netgear powerline adapters, and still no luck. About to give up in frustration, I tried connecting one adapter to the access point in the attic, and the other to the would-be access point in the closet. Success!
Except...the throughput is mediocre. My Internet connection is 50mbps down and 25mbps up, and if I'm using the closet connection, I'm lucky if I will get 10mbps in each direction. Even when I connect a laptop directly to the powerline adapter, I get the same speeds, so it's not the ASUS. That's an acceptable speed for web browsing, but not optimal for an HD video connection.Read more ›
