1. It gets a bit warm. Not hot but I did decide to place it where there would be good airflow.
2. You must be on the same phase (side) of your power panel at both the primary and the wifi ends. If you plug in and can not get a connection. For those not familiar with power panels. Power arrives on 2 different 110 connections. Most panels have 2 sides of breakers. The rooms where both the primary and extension are plugged MUST be on the same side of the panel or you are not going to have a connection.
However there are quite a few negatives I want to mention:
I don't like that it blocks the upper outlet older models didn't do this so I don't know how this design regressed.
Setting up the device was finicky in that I had to go back and forth up and down stairs to press the sync button for 3 seconds repeatedly until the units finally synced.
The real reason I gave this only 2 stars is that the powerline adapter causes my external speakers to have massive static that corresponds to the amount of data being sent. If I go to speedtest web site the speakers go nuts regardless of volume set on the speakers (even set to volume level 0). Netgear Tech support were unable to provide any guidance. They just told me to return the product. I figured out a work around on my own. Battery powered speakers did not have the problem at all so that let me to believe it had to be intereference from the powerline adapter. The work around I found was I had to buy an additional CableWholesale Surge Protector with 1 Outlet, 540 Joules and EMI/RFI Filter (50W1-905302) to make the static go away, plus I had to plug the speakers into another outlet with that filter. There is still a tiny bit of EMI/RFI noise but its much better with the filter I'm thinking of ordering a second EMI/RFI filter adapter to ADD to my existing one to see if it eliminates all static.
Never would I have thought that speaker noise would be a problem when I purchased this product.
- Ethernet Connection is at 1Gigabit speed
- Device blocks the upper outlet
- Syncing is finicky,
- Internet traffic over powerline adapter causes static on external computer speakers. (Required purchase of additional EMI/RFI Filter adapter)
When it is working it is pretty stellar. I use it for my Xbox and playstation which both are about 30ft from the router and between about 4 walls. I get around 50 mbps down and 15 up on average through the wifi and with this I get 90 mbps down and 24 up on average. There is a noticeable difference when I play online especially when everyone in my house is online, I experience no lag whatsoever which is really nice.
edit: So a little over a year and one of the adapters stopped working. Well actually it started happening a few months back it just wouldn't work at all then it would come back but now it does work at all. So I would just buy another but they only sell it in a 2 pack so what the hell am I going to do with the 3rd one? Oh I know keep it until one of the other ones breaks within the next year I guess.

With any of these brand of "Powerline Network Devices", remember that an Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) is between the source and destination can affect performance.
In case you don't know, in 2002 in Canada it became mandatory for all new homes to have a AFCI in ALL of the bedroom. I was no exception as I have two installed which covers all 4 bedrooms.
In my case, my max home speed is 60mb/s. There are my AFCI/NO AFIC tests:
Test #1: From the second floor hallway to basement. In this case NO AFCI breaker was involved. My connection speed was 50 mb/s.
Test #2, connecting from a bedroom (aka my office) outlet to the same outlet in the basement. Speed dropped to 35 mb/s.
My permanent source location is the bedroom office, and 35 mb/s proved more than enough to watch YouTube and other videos in the basement. I am not paying $80 per breaker to improve this.
Apparently not all AFCI breakers will affect the internet traffic: I referenced this article, which includes a small list of good and bad AFCI breakers. [...]
