I bought these a few weeks ago now and for the first 2 weeks I was having to restart both devices every day due to the powerline connectivity dropping.

I started reading around to see if anyone else was experiencing the same issues and found the large number of 1/5 ratings on Amazon - which obviously got me a little worried. Now up until then I hadn't really tried to resolve the issues as I was spending a lot of time away from home (with work), but having read the reviews I decided to have a proper go at fixing the connectivity issue before returning these for a refund.

A quick visit to Belkin's website later and I had the firmware update software on my laptop. Then 10 mins later I'd got it installed on both devices. That was 7 days ago now and I haven't had a single issue since.

Bandwidth is as expected (given my router is the basic one from Sky) and connectivity is very stable. Hopefully people who have had issues will find this useful!

I bought a pair of this 2 days ago, plugged them in, and the first experience was very good:
They instantly linked up with the blue light indicating a good connection between the two units, and I started attempting to stream some HD content across my home network and was pleased that the 720p stuff that wouldn't quite work before with my old 85Mbps rated Homeplugs, did now work.

However, from there, it was all very downhill.

The next day, the connection between the two rooms appeared to drop completely, which upon initial diagnosis appeared to be because the DHCP server (built-in to dsl router) in one room wasn't giving IP addresses to the computers in the other room. After initially suspecting the router's DHCP server was dodgy, and giving out static IPs, I was still having no end of problems are eventually traced the problem to the Powerline line adapters (why I didn't think it was this sooner I don't know - perhaps because I had so much Hope invested in these units and I really Wanted them to work - I really did).

They just randomly don't route packets between the two ends. They worked for a bit, and a bit faster than the rest of the products on the market but this gain in speed comes with a terrible sacrifice of reliability.

They might work well in some homes. For me, they are not fit for purpose. I'm sending mine back.

Some might say my expectations were too high, but my expectations are this;

If the wirings's good, it should run at High speeds
If the units can't maintain a high speed connection reliably, the speed should be reduced until reliability is achieved.

If you want a stable home network - just don't bother with these.

My house is pretty new (<10 years) with good quality wiring. I bought two pairs of these adaptors to attempt to create a faster, more stable replacement for a wireless-based home network, connecting 4 different groups of computers / network devices. After a couple of weeks trying to get these to work properly, I've given up and reverted to wireless.

Speed was pretty good - most of the time, I got the indication that the link was > 200Mbps, which is great. What was unacceptable was the frequent connection drops. I run a monitor from one machine in the house that checks once per minute whether it can reach a given web page. Over the space of the last week, I've received approximately 20 alerts per day indicating that the network is not working (the web site, and my ADSL, have been up just fine for all of that time). Frequently (several times per day) I find that one node in the network is completely unable to talk to the rest of the nodes. The only fix seems to be to turn the Belkin adaptors off and on again. I've even considered putting them all on a timer, rebooting them a few times each day, it got that bad.

I'm an experienced software and telecomms engineer with a deep understanding of networking protocols and hardware, but I despair of ever getting these to work reliably. There are no available tools to troubleshoot what's going on, and the indicators on the boxes themselves suggest that there are no problems at all times, even when the adaptor is not working at all. The available firmware update seems to make the adaptors even less reliable.

Belkin claim that adding more adaptors past the first pair will make the whole network faster and more stable.

Replaced my 200mbs Powerline with these devices, and they just didn't work. Tried moving them here and there, but they would only work when in such close proximity to one another that a 5m ethernet cable offered a better solution. Returned for full refund. Don't waste your money.

I noticed that these powerlines are getting a pretty bad rap on these reviews. They work brilliantly for me and they'll work brilliantly for you if you follow these set up rules.

- You need a router or switch with Gigabite Capabilities ( you only get 100 mbps speeds from ISP supplied routers ie BT home hub )

- Don't plug them into a extension lead, plug them straight into the wall socket (I will say the wiring in your home will make a difference depending on the age of your home's wiring).

- Make sure you sync the encryption on the plugs using the buttons at the top of the plugs (not rocket science I know)

I am now streaming HD video from a DLNA server to two ps3's in the living room and bedroom with ease (and my connection while playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 never fails). I now have a rock solid connection in my study too. I honestly haven't not had one connection problem and those the three blue lights on the plugs always shine for me!!!

I also followed the advise on the box and bought a extra pair of these bad boys to get a more robust network and worked a treat (the firt two on their own worked a treat as well)

DO NOT EXPECT TO HAVE GIGABITE SPEEDS IF DONT HAVE A GIGABITE ROUTER OR SWITCH.
