    "It uses the wiring on your house to extend the range of your Wi-Fi. I like that it has an outlet on the face of it so you are not tying up a plug. Works for our situation."

    "This little box saved me so much time, money and frustration. I was having horrible signal issues in my home and the only option I thought I had were, run a new cat6 line to the dead spots or just deal with the slow speeds. This thing fixed my problem without having to do either, just plug one in near your router and the other where your device is set up. Perfect. "

    "Three hours of trying to setup is my limit. Bought these to replace a first gen Powerline adapter setup that I've used for years as an early adopter of the tech. I bought two kits for a total of four adapters to use on three outlets with one extra in case I wanted to get a signal in another room eventually. The initial setup with the utility was fine. The most frustrating part of the experience is that the adapters all found each other easily. I was able to identify and name each one and get a clear idea for what kind of speeds to expect... Except they never stay connected for longer than 3 seconds. After going up and down stairs for three hours, I'm sorry I even thought of trying these things. After seeing connections drop randomly every few seconds, I'm done trying different configurations to get these things to work. Spent 10 mins and reset up my trust old Linksys setup and I'm able to write this review in seconds. After the anger subsides, I'll probably try another AV2 rig from a company I trust. The only value I got out of this junk was being able to get a real speed test on my power grid. "

    "This is extremely fast, but a bit big and clunky. I wish it were smaller, but otherwise it's perfect."
