5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent in all respects, 11 Jan. 2012
This review is from: TP-Link TL-PA211KIT AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack (Accessory)
Having been plagued by wi-fi slow speeds and drop-offs for years, I finally bought this and wondered whether it would work with my Macbook Pro.

I can say that never have I bought a piece of hardware that worked so well and was so easy to install.

I took one out of the box and plugged it into a wall socket (it has to go directly into the socket - use an adapter but not a wired extension).

I then connected it to my router (Time Capsule) with one of the supplied ethernet cables.

I plugged the other unit into the socket in my other room and connected it to my Macbook with the other supplied ethernet cable.

Of course, this didn't work until I paired them by holding down the button of the router-unit for 6 seconds. Then I did the same for the unit in the other room.

I reckon my internet speed has gone up 10 times. I can now view BBC iPlayer in HD, full screen, whereas before it kept buffering every few seconds.

Furthermore I can move the second unit from room to room without having to keep pairing them (not that it would take long - about 12 seconds plus walking time!)

An excellent bit of kit and highly recommended.
