This a great set especially since you can use both as receivers to expand an existing system. I didn't have to do anything but plug them in. NOT for Wireless. These need the Cat6 wire to work and will not work with another brand or if so, setting require tweaking beyond my level of expertise. I intended to get more but the sales guy at Fry's electronics told me after 3 the signal deteriorates rather quickly. So far with the 3 I have everything is working well.

cheap solution

Used this product over a wifi extender for a PS4. Had a full signal strength with the wifi but still got lag during online play this product cured my issue 98% of the time. It is always better to have a wired connection over wifi for online play. My router is on the other side of the house from the entertainment center if you dont want to run a network line under the house or thru the house this is best option out there period great product!

Awesome!

I bought the powerline adapter kit to fix the issue I was having with my Direct TV wireless internet connection. It seemed like the wifi connection either would not connect or would connect for a few days then say it was unavailable when I'd try to access on demand programming. After endless frustration, resets, and phone calls to customer service, I gave up. Direct TV's customer service best advice was to plug the internet cable directly into the box... No kidding! But that kind of defeats the purpose of the box being wifi capable. As the internet wiring is in the back of the house, a friend recommended powerline networking as a solution.The powerline adapter kit took less than 5 minutes to plug in, and the internet is up and running faster than the wifi ever was. I have not had any issues at all. Very happy with the product.

Really good adapter

Once you get this product you can forget wireless adapters. Powerline adapters blow them outta the water and this one in particular does. Since I've only bought this one I can't say it's the best on the market, but you won't be disappointed if you buy it. Another thing, I recommend this for a desktop more than a laptop.

just what I needed

I read a lot of reviews. great product, easy setup. it took me less than five minutes to set it up. I got speed that almost the same as hard wire connection. Very easy to setup. so far so good. I am happy with my purchase.

Excellent purshase

All my problems are solve with this devices , very glad I bought them. Now I have internet all over my house and the videos streaming are awsome.

Could not have been easier

I used this for a DirecTV receiver for on-demand. I plugged it in and it worked immediately - no set up, no password to enter. It could not have been any easier and it was half the price of the DirecTV wireless Cinema Kit.

They Work with other Powerline Network Adapters !

The TP-Link worked great with my old Actiontec Powerline Network Adapters . They really are just plug and play , was able to update one of my older computers just by putting the adapter in the wall hooking up the computer to my 24" LED TV and powering it all up and it was on line and updating as quickly as being connected directly to the router in the other room . So now I should be able to reconfigure my place to have internet connection in every room and the porch too , talk about covering all the squares and having the freedom watch all my dumb TV's with the smart devices and computers attached . No more being trapped at the Desk , this is almost as exciting as when I got my first wireless phone and was no longer tethered to one area , Freedom without the lag of the wireless spinning thingy on the screen !

Plug and play

Easy to setup and don't have to worry about passwords because it does not have wifi. Much more stable than wifi.

Works well, description missing info

The item works as expected and I'm ordering again as I need more. Only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the online description differs from the box. The box states that both outlets must be on the same circuit and will not work with surge protectors. This is a pretty big issue to be missing and had it mentioned that I wouldn't have purchased them, I knew it would be across multiple circuits. The good thing though is both of these statements are wrong, I've tried them on multiple circuits and both on surge protectors and have had no issues. Only item that killed it was a UPS but that was expected. Unsure of the longevity, only had for about 2 months, but other than the poor description it's a good product and I'd recommend them.

4. Yes. Two adapters, two Ethernet cables. I plugged one into a port on the router, plugged the TV into the 2nd adapter and pow - no more sputtering Netflix. Bought two more after that and now I stream movies from the laptop's external hard drives to the TV.

1. This kit comes with 2 adapters. You connect one to your router. You connect the other to a computer. Done. Everything else keeps working the same. All this does is add a wired connection to another computer in your house that you don't have a wired connection for. Technically if you buy another receiver from another manufacturer it should work but why not buy from the same to avoid issues? The price is reasonable and you can buy another kit for 2 more computers. None of them are "master" except the one you plug into your router.

2. Dear tb, These adapters come in a pair to which one will connect directly to the back of your router and the second adapter will connect directly to whichever device you need it for, in this case it would be the troublesome computer. All other devices can operate off wifi simultaneously so this will not be an issue. All powerline adapters use the same AV Homeplug standard so technically, they should all be compatible, but its best to stay within the same manufacturer. To answer your question about models, if you decide to purchase this AV500 PA4010KIT and later down the line decide to purchase a separate AV600 PA6010 adapter, the PA6010 performance will be degraded to the speeds of the AV500 adapters. Therefore it is best to stay with the same product category such as with AV500 adapters throughout your entire network.
