5.0 out of 5 stars Netgear XAVB5001 Powerline AV 500 Adapter Kit, 23 April 2012
This review is from: Netgear XAVB5001 Powerline AV 500 Adapter Kit (Personal Computers)
I ordered these on 2 April they were delivered 5 days later, I had not realized there were two Powerline Adapters, even better.
I had also ordered the Netgear XAVB5004 Powerline 4-Port AV 500 Kit which arrived the previous day. I quickly read through the instructions and installed the 4 port kit from the router to my TV setup in the lounge, some 20 meters apart with the mains connected to a 4 way block at the end of 6 metres of cable supplying the router and the new powerline adapter. I got maximum signal strength indicated at both ends of the link and was able to run the BBC or the ITV players at HD quality. My next move was to replace the 4 port unit with one of the XAVB5001 units at the Lounge TV and the other near the dining room TV the 4 port unit was taken down to the office and connected to my computer and other items normally using a wired LAN.
Everything worked perfectly, yippee I can now remove the long LAN cables. Over the next couple of days I got by wife to connect the BBC i player in the dining room to HD on that TV while I connected to the either the BBC or ITV player in the lounge TV also using HD they both worked OK without any dropouts. the final test was to power up one of the computers and the internet radio and use two BBC i players one started 5 minutes earlier than the other both using HD signals; perfect again no dropouts at all on any of the outputs.
I just wish I had bought these powerline adapters months ago, they would have saved a great deal of work and stress in routing long Lan cables all over the house.
I am not on a cable system for broadband I get approximately 18 mega bits per second from the end of a telephone line 3k from the substation.
