From the Manufacturer

Want to connect your Slingbox but your TV is in a different room than your router? Need a network connection for your computer or game console in an area where you have no wireless coverage? Want an easy-to-set-up networking solution that provides a fast connection and the best conditions for smooth video? You need SlingLink TURBO.

Connectivity Anywhere In The Home

Slingbox is often located in an area that is not ideal for a wireless connection. Stereo equipment, a stereo rack, or lots of wires can cause a weak or fading Wi-Fi signal. SlingLink TURBO eliminates these problems and assures a high quality connection.

Best Connection and Signal Quality

By providing a direct hard-wired connection from the internet to your Slingbox or computer, you get the best possible video and the most reliable connection for your computer.

Connect All Your Devices to the Internet

For network connections to multiple devices, such as a satellite receiver, game console, or computer, try SlingLink TURBO 4-Port. Expand your network and add up to 16 SlingLink devices (up to 64 networked devices) throughout your home.

How it Works

The SlingLink TURBO 1-Port and 4-Port are plug-and-play devices. Easily connect your Slingbox to your router -- even if they're located in separate rooms.

SlingLink TURBO Diagram

Just plug one SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your router. Plug the other SlingLink TURBO into an in-wall electrical outlet near your Slingbox or any other device that needs to be connected to the internet.

Firstoff, I would say this device does what it is supposed to. Having used several powerline products like this, I will say that this one performs about as well as competing units. That said, there are few caveats I would point out. First, you're only going to get acceptable throughput when both sides of the link are on the same household circuit. This is especially true with older homes who may have gone through electrical upgrades (like mine). Also, your throughput will suffer when you use other electrical devices on the circuit. For example, my video gets choppy whenever someone turns on/off the bathroom light which is adjacent to the bedroom where I have this unit located. For basic internet usage this is not a big deal, but if you're streaming video to a media center like I am, it is somewhat of an annoyance.

This product not only proved itself, but it solved the problem of having to drill holes and run cables through the house, especially in a very difficult area. I am extremely pleased with this item, and would like to see the price drop a little more, but all in all it is definitely worth the price and time involved. It took about 3 minutes to have it all setup. There is no programming at all, it's all automatic.

I bought this product to work with my Slingbox because my router is in a different room from my TV. It worked perfectly out of the box. I also use it to convert my wireless network to a wired network using the household current and my internet speed has doubled. Great product, great concept. May help change the way we use computers in the home.

This product works. However it only works if it is run on the same circuit. For example most houses have a fuse box with multiple breakers. If they are on two different breakers it will NOT work. You are better off buying a wireless bridge. I used it for one day with a really long extention cord to see if it worked and it did but I had to be on another outlet in the same room. So do your reserch first check your fuse box to make sure that the two places you want to plug in are on the same fuse. Hope this helps.

I purchased this Slinglink Turbo 1PORT Enet Connection Bridge (SL 150-100) for use with my Sling Media Slingbox PRO-HD SB300-100. You ONLY have to buy the Slinglink Turbo if your cable/satellite/whatever you use to get television signal from is not located next to your router. In my case, my router and modem are located in my office on the main floor of my house. We only have 3 tv's set up to our Comcast Digital Cable (Regular Package comes with a cable box) so I had to pick one of them. I decided to hook up the Slingbox PRO-HD in our basement because that tv gets the least amount of use (Setting that up is a whole different review).

Inside the Slinglink Turbo box, you get 2 Slinglinks. I connected one to the wireless-n Linksys router that we have in my office. All you do is plug one of the extra ethernet cables that comes in the box into an open slot on the routher. And you HAVE TO plug the power cord into an actual wall socket. YOU CANNOT PLUG IT INTO A POWER STRIP. Then, I set up the other Slinglink, in our basement where the SingBox PRO-HD is located. Once again, I plugged the ehternet cord from the Slinglink box into the back of the SlingBxo PRO-HD's ethernet port. I powered the Slinglink into an actual wall socket and kept the SlingBox PRO-HD plugged into a power strip.

When I ran the software that you download from slingmedia(dot)com, it recognized the SlingBox through my houses wiring via the Slinglinks. We have Comcast High Speed Cable Internet just incase you were wondering.

Product works great!

The SlingMedia Slinglink is economical way to extend the range of your router. Unfortunately, SlingMedia devices (Such as Sling Media SlingCatcher SC100-100 Universal Media Player for TV or Sling Media Slingbox SOLO (SB260-100) ) must be plugged directly into an internet source. The SlingLink allow you to use your home's electrical wiring as a means to extend your router.

A couple of things

1 - You must plug the SlingLink directly into your wall socket. It will not work with a power strip or surge protector.
2 - Reaches speeds in excess of 1MPS
3 - Set-up is very, very easy
4- Only 1 port - so you can only plug one device into the unit.
5- Homes with older electrical wiring may have some issues

Final Verdict

I use the the SlingLink for use with my Sling Media SlingCatcher SC100-100 Universal Media Player for TV and I must say that it works perfectly. I have not come across a single issue (and if I do I will update this review).

I have many Sling Media products and love them all. I am very pleased in general with Sling Media products. I just purchased a SlingCatcher to use in conjunction with my Slingbox because I have a TV in a room without a wired connection. The problem, is that my router is upstairs, while my SlingCatcher is downstairs. The solution should have been simple with the SlingLink...which is designed to turn your house's electrical wiring into an ethernet connection. The problem I found out was that the wiring upstairs differed from the wiring downstairs, so the SlingLink couldn't make a connection. After troubleshooting with the Sling Media people on the Sling Chat, it was determined that the SlingLink wouldn't work in my house. Instead, a wireless bridge was recommended. I then purchased the Linksys Wireless-N gaming adapter which has worked beautifully for my needs. All in all, the SlingLink may work for you in your house. However, beware that if your house is large (mine is 4000 square feet), then the SlingLink may not work due to the complexity of the electrical wiring. The wireless bridge will work much better. In a smaller house that is one level, I am sure the SlingLink would work fine. That is why I gave it only 3 stars.
