I read lots about Powerline 'not giving the speed quoted', but this one REALLY does. My XBOX-360 is too far from my router for wireless (can't even get a signal) so I tried Max Value (85Mbps) twin pack (cheaper than an Xbox wireless adapter), and ended up with 75Mbps - more than enough for streaming video, or downloading from Xbox LIve! So, I replaced another wireless connection (where I was getting 11-30 Mbps) with Max Value (85Mbps), and have a constant 65-68Mbps (and this was with it plugged into a jo-jo, which is not recommended!). It makes a difference where you plug in the one connected to the router - but with the monitoring software supplied, it is easy to find the best speed. I highly recommend this. It works easily (just plug in as many adapters as you want and they just work) and the software is very simple to find the best power points to use - just move them until it shows the best speeds.
This is home networking the way it SHOULD be. Easy, speedy and needing no technical knowledge at all. Why pay a premium price when this 'does it all'?

I am very pleased with these. They come with the ethernet cables. Just plug one cable into your router and the other end into the plug. Plug this into a wall socket. Then take the other plug attach the other ethernet cable to this plug, attach the other end to your PC/ Laptop. Plug this into a different wall socket. Hey presto you have your internet connection. I have had these working for a few weeks now and they are great. There on continuous 12 hours per day with no problems. I can get the connection from any wall socket. I hav'nt bothered with the software, I just want the connection, not really bothered about the speed check and don't need any extra security. Overall excellent product, no instructions in box, but not really needed as they are so easy to use. Would be handy if the ethernet socket on the plugs was at the top rather that the bottom, for anyone with wall sockets near the floor (although if you confident with small diy electrical work I guess you could always turn the wall socket face plate round!).

This review would have received 5 stars if the included software on CD had installed correctly. In common with reviewers on Amazon of the 'twin pack' of the same Home Plug, the software fails to install and complains about a missing 'ini' file. I bought single units because at the time of ordering it was cheaper to buy two singles than a twin pack!

If you want, you can run the units straight out of the box and they will see one another and work. However, without the software you cannot password protect the units or change the network name away from the default 'HomePlug'. This may not bother some people but one of the useful parts of the software is a monitor which reports the quality of each link and what speed each unit is connected at. This is useful information because it is affected by distance, interference and other 'noisey' items plugged into nearby sockets.

You CAN install the software, but NOT by selecting that option from the CD autorun menu. Browse to the CD instead (I'll assume your CD drive is E:) and copy the files and subfolders from the E:\software\HomePlug directory to an empty directory on your hard drive. Browse to your new directory and click on 'setup.exe' in there. The software installs correctly and you can learn how to drive it from the PDF document on the CD. Good luck.

The units work well in my 4 bedroom house with the furthest unit still managing a speed of 61 Mbps. They perform as well as a pair of Peak Powerline units I used previously and perhaps not surprisingly the software interface is almost identical.

I ordered the 85mbps ethernet adapter to plug into my mains near the TV as the TV can access the internet.
Not knowing a lot about them, but having read that USB dongles hadn't been that reliable, I opted for this adapter.
Unfortunately I didn't appreciate you would need two adapters, one to plug into the PC router and connect to the router via ethernet cable that would recognise the second adapter that needed to be plugged in near to TV and this also needs to be connected with and ethernet cable too.
So I ordered one then had to order another once I'd realised my mistake.
On the plus side they were simple to set up even with my limited knowledge.
The company I ordered them from, through Amazon, was Indigostarfish, I have ordered from them before, they are extremely reliable, very fast postage and I highly recommend them.
But I do think that there should be big bold lettering on the advert explaining that two of these units are the minimum requirement.Max Value 85 Mbps, Powerline Ethernet Adapter, Home Plug, Single Unit Pack

Great product, needed to fiddle with settings on my Imac a bit to get it to work, but it just plugged straight into PS3 and 360 and worked. A lot more reliable than wireless. You can have more than one plugged in for various devices. Negatives are the CD that came with it is pretty useless and information to get it to work with a Mac was not helpful. I'd recommend it over wireless as it never drops connection which I have found most wireless routers are prone to.
