*********EDIT 8/30/12
A few quirks with this otherwise great product. This product is incompatible with iTunes home sharing. If your itunes library is on one network and you are on the extended network, you won't be able to see the shared library. this is a known problem, and there appears to be no solution. Second, the default encryption key is something simple, and is the same for every unit sold. I can't believe this but it is true. Once, after a firmware update that factory reset everything I realized my XAVN2001 had connected to someone else's network in my building-- who also hadn't changed the default key.

______________________
I've used power line adapters since before they were renamed HOME PLUG and HOME PLUG AV.

Some of the worked well, like linksys, others worked just as well at halve the price such as Actiontec.

Answering friends, clients, families questions about how to get their internet from their den to the other side of their house was never a simple answer. If you want to keep it wireless you needed coordinated placement of repeaters and remotes that had to interoperate properly -easier said than done. It was expensive and could require maintenance.

There always was WDS (wireless distribution system) which barely worked if you could find hardware that supported it. Other manufactures had their own "range extending technology" which was completely incompatible with the same company's previous and future products. It was kind of a mess. Out comes this little bit of netgear kit. First It takes two high quality power line adapters to rout all the data through your homes AC wiring. This is part of a standard so you aren't locked into an one manufacture.

This product is great. It does exactly what it is supposed to with excellent quality. If you use a Mac with OS X and an Airport router, however, it will be tricky to change the wireless network name from NETGEAR and apply security settings, since the Netgear Powerline utility for Mac is lacking (it doesn't give you the ip address) and the default ip address for each extender is different. Fortunately, I figured it out, though. Here is what you have to do:

Set up the Netgear Powerline by plugging in the Adaptor into the wall and connect it to a LAN port on your router. Next, plug the Extender into a wall outlet in the area that you want a better signal. After doing this, you will notice the network "NETGEAR" show up in your Airport list in the top right corner of the screen. Connect to the network and visit a site or two to make sure that the connection is how you want it. Next, open the Airport Utility and go to the Manual settings for your Airport router. Click on Advanced, then the Logging & Statistics tab. Next, click on the Logs & Statistics button on the bottom of the page. Click the "DHCP Clients" tab and you will see a number of devices that are communicating with your router. The one with the same MAC Address as your Netgear Wireless Extender (its MAC address can be found on the back of it) is your Wireless Extender. Note its IP Address and type it into your Internet browser. This will take you to the Settings page for your Netgear Powerline kit.

Besides this ignorant lack of process that will probably take up many peoples' time, the product is excellent.

Enjoy.

The Netgear Powerline AV 200 Wireless-N Extender Kit defiantly improved my wireless signal 100%. My main router(Netgear WNR834B-100NAS Wireless N Router) is located across the house from my room and my signal was terrible. I had bought the new Xbox 360 250GB Console with Kinect and thought the wireless signal from my xbox would reach my router, but it only had a 1 bar signal. so I looked around on Amazon and found this product. The day I received the Powerline it took me about 20 minutes to set it up. I noticed that certain wall outlets receive signals differently. So you might have to try a few wall outlets before you can get the most out of your Powerline. The thing I liked about it is it shows a red light if your receiving a link rate of less than 50 Mbps, a Yellow light for a link rate between 50 and 80 Mbps, and a green light for a link rate of 80 Mbps or more. On my Current setup I'm currently receiving 96 Mbps. Now I am playing my Xbox games Lag free with all Four Bars while I'm even on my laptop. Before, the Netflix on my Xbox would only show a one bar signal strength, now I get all four bars and watch movies and TV shows in HD quality! My only complaint with this product is it does basically take up the whole wall outlet, but its worth the signal.

The wireless extender part of this bundle does not work reliably with a large variety of wireless devices. As far as I can tell, any device running iOS or Android 2.1 (or earlier) will connect to the wireless extender, but drop out after a few minutes of inactivity. The devices will still believe that they are properly connected to the extender, but fail to send or receive any data. Many people in the Netgear forums have complained about this, but there has been no response from the company, nor has there been a firmware update to this device. I would avoid this bundle. I ended up turning off the wireless portion of the extender and connecting a standalone wireless router (acting in bridge mode) to the ethernet port of the wireless half of the bundle. Save yourself a headache and just buy a kit without the wireless bits and a separate wireless access point.
