Product Description

Sometimes there isn't an Ethernet jack around when you need one. The SlingLink Turbo W1 is a HomePlug ethernet adapter that enables network connectivity using any available electrical outlet, allowing connection to various devices including a DISH Network receiver, SlingBox, video game console, computer, and anything with an Ethernet jack. The DISH Network ViP series of receivers have built-in SlingLink technology so they only require one SlingLink plugged into an electrical outlet near the router to connect the compatible DISH receiver to the internet. For other devices, two SlingLink adapters are required (one for the router and one for the device) to receive network access. You can provide access to additional devices by adding additional SlingLinks.

I purchased this for the pc in a room that I didn't want to run an ethernet cable to and the pc was an older pc for my kids so it didn't have a USB 2.0 port to work with a wireless device. This adapter works great and is truly plug and play. I already had one to connect my 2 DishNetwork DVR receivers to, so I knew it would be pretty good. Keep in mind that if you are new to using HomeLink devices you will need to purchase at least 2 initially, one for your device and one to connect to your router, unless you have DishNetwork receivers which have the capability built into the receiver and all you will need is one to connect to your router.

After so many problems with the wireless router provided by my ISP, I was considering wiring my house with a CAT5e network. I woke up one morning and saw the SlingLink box DISH Network had installed to allow my set top boxes to communicate with my router blinking away. It dawned on me that using a few more of these things I should be able to do the same for all of the computers in my house.

So I purchased one to test my theory and it worked like a charm. I decided to purchase two more, including one for my Roku set top box. No more dropped signals, no more slowness, and no crawling around in the attic to wire the whole house. The wiring is already done! The SlingLink boxes use your home's electrical wiring to communicate with each other.

You'll need at least two SlingLink boxes, one for the router and one for each computer or other device you want to connect to the internet (recent DISH customers probably already have one on the router since their set top boxes have SlingLink built in).

Plug one directly into the wall (DO NOT plug it into a surge protector, it won't work) and run the included network cable to your router. Plug another one in and run the network cable to your computer or other device's network adapter. Your router treats anything on SlingLink as if it were plugged directly into it. Nothing else to set up. It's easy, fast and works great!

Summary - These Plug-and-Surf devices work well at high data rates. You need two to start, but can add on more devices individually.

Background - I have a 4200 Square Foot Home. Due to the placement of the cable modem and VOIP connection, the wireless router is in the basement. This was causing speed issues, especially with Over the Top Video Services such as Amazon Prime, Netflix, Apple TV, etc. on the second floor.

Application - I had heard about this product, but like many others was not sure. When Woot! offered a deal on a SlingBox (Sling Media Slingbox SOLO (SB260-100)) and two Slinglinks (Slinglink Turbo 1PORT Enet Connection Bridge (SL 150-100)) for $99, I thought that it was worth the cost to try since I wanted a SlingBox for my daughter at College. Since I had multiple items in my media cabinet I wanted to support (SlingBox, Apple TV (Apple TV MD199LL/A [NEWEST VERSION]), Sony BluRay) and these devices only have ONE Ethernet jack, I was cautious because I wanted to make sure these devices would support a Ethernet Switch. I will skip the drama, and tell you that they do, turning a single data port into 4 or 7 (depending on the switch you purchase). TRENDnet 5-Port GREENnet Switch (5 x 10/100Mbps Auto-MDIX RJ-45 Ports) TE100-S50g (Black Metal)

Installation - I installed one of these in the basement near the router and the other in the Master Bedroom Sitting area.

I have had my home network on Slinglinks for a couple of years. Slingbox, Slingcatcher on my bedroom TV (don't have to pay the satellite company extra), wired internet in the garage where the wireless won't reach, as well as TV on an old laptop from the Slingbox, all very easy to set up. Sling makes stuff that just works, always easy to set up, and you don't have to be an IT geek to do it. I purchased this new Slinglink because I dropped one on a hard floor from about 4 feet while re-arranging some TV/DVD equipment, and it wouldn't work afterward. Yes, I tried smacking it again - no dice. But it was a good thing, because the new Slinglink Turbo is faster, and this was the connection to my Slingbox - eliminated the occasional stutter I had seen on my Slingcatcher-linked TV.

If you are interested in powerline networking in your home, go with Sling equipment.

I will wait 30 days and revisit this review, but, so far, this thing is God's gift to home networking. I have a a Linksys powerline adapter "base station" and I use that to send signal upstairs to a wifi hotspot. That was around $80, so I was skeptical that this SlingLink would work with it as another drop for the Wii. I thought it might be too good to be true.

Not only does it work, but it was absolutely, positively plug-n-play. It took longer to open the box than it did to install the thing.

How often is home networking anything other than torture? How many nice people in Bangalore have I met in the course of "installing" routers, repeaters, etc.?

I am a happy camper. Thanks SlingPeople!
