However you've come to the conclusion that you need this Wired Network Plug adapter, you've found what you're looking for.
In the box:
2 boxes that plug into a wall outlet and have a network connection on the bottom (RJ45).
2 yellow cables. Short. Maybe 2 feet.
1 CD or DVD or something that might have a manual or drivers or something on it. I left it in the box, and never needed it.
The fun begins: Plug one of the boxes into the wall (power) outlet nearby your router. Plug its cable into your router. Plug the OTHER into a power outlet box where you want a wired connection, and connect its network cable to your Bluray, laptop, whatever.
Then you're done.
It really was that easy; I'm using Windows7 and Windows XP machines, and everything Just Worked. (Also says it works on Win98/98SE/Me/2000/Vista... 32 and 64 bit; Linux and Mac OS.)
So your electric cables are magically turned into a networking cable - but does it work? Yep, sure does. My unscientific tests show that transferring about 500megs between 2 machines using this as the networking option is significantly faster than my wireless option. Wireless: 3 minutes, 36 seconds. Wired, using this Powerline Ethernet adapter: 2 minutes, 20 seconds. Also, you'll likely experience faster speeds than that (much faster, potentially) for a couple reasons: (1) I was copying stuff to a Netbook, which has disk write speeds about as fast as somebody manually typing all the 1's and 0's themselves. (2) The rest of my network is 10/100, so getting speeds to 200Mbps just wasn't going to happen anyway. For the record, my wireless is 802.11g.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this product. It does exactly what it claims, and I have experienced no glitches that would make me not want to use it. Admittedly, this is a fairly niche product (everyone loves wireless nowadays), but one that has worked flawlessly thus far. You'll probably want to buy a somewhat longer cable - my Bluray player is far from a power outlet, and I had to use a 12 footer instead of the short one it came with.
The Diamond Multimedia Powerline Internet AV is a breeze to set up. All you need a free slot on your router and a nearby power supply. (I have mine hooked into a surge protector powerstrip.) You plug one unit to the power supply and attached the LAN cable from it to the router. Little lights will come up to show that it's up and running.
Next, you take the second unit and plug it in to a wall or powerstrip anywhere inside your house. Connect the LAN cable to the internet ready device (PC, laptop, game console, etc.). Little lights, again, will tell you the unit is active. Moment later, almost like magic, you have access to the Internet.
Being skeptic about this, I ran a couple of speedtest using online Internet sites using my older laptop (running Lubuntu Linux OS). The laptop had no problems whatsoever connecting with the new LAN connection by Diamond Multimedia. The Internet was up and running as soon as I connected it. The results, testing from different servers, came up with an average of 15Mbps download speed. My LAN desktops are connected at 35 Mbps. It's a big speed drop and I will investigate further into this to see if this can be fixed or adjusted.
However, even at 15Mpbs, I appreciate the flexibility this device adds to my home network. It opens up the possibility to get stable Internet access anywhere in my house without always having to fuss with the wi-fi and its quirks (dead zones due to distance or walls).
One more test. This time with the Xbox 360. Results: Satisfactory. Xbox had no problems recognizing the LAN connection and was running in an instant. I was able to download and view HD videos in Zune quickly and without any problems. So far, so good.
This is my initial outlook on Diamond Multimedia's Powerline Internet AV Ethernet Adapter. I will continue to use and test it for future updates to this review. So far I am pleased. It's proved to be easy to set up, flexible to use, and a good performer. 5 Stars! The drop in download speed is disappointing - that part deserves 3.5 stars. Good, but not great.
If you're looking for flexibility in your Internet network without the fuss of wi-fi or snaking LAN wires or costly installations, this is a worthy item to look into.
I should note that I have no problems with Skype, and I don't get any kind of interference (I once had a router that would jam when the microwave turned on)! If you are completely inept regarding networking, etc. (like me), this is for you! Really!! Buy it, you'll like it.
