Powerline adapters should be "plug and play" devices, that ...Powerline adapters should be "plug and play" devices, that simply work the first time. These, unfortunately, did not work. Speaking to Trendnet tech support in India was a lesson in frustration. I was told to install software that my computer security software correctly identified as "spyware". Even with the malware installed they still failed to function. Look at another comparable product from a different manufacturer if you wish to avoid frustration. 1Great...for a few daysProduct: TRENDnet TPL-406E2KWe have a WiFI dead spot and I've avoided running cables just because of the hassle of working in two crawl spaces with a suspended ceiling in between. Then I saw this little kit and I figured for the price I could save a lot of work and it wouldn't really be that much more expensive than cable, connectors, wall plates, etc.I was going to write a glowing review the first day I installed the kit and even wrote an email to a friend saying how great it was. It was amazingly simple to install and crawling behind stuff to plug the adapters in and run cables took more time that it did to get the "extended" network up and running. It worked great, until today when the two adapters appear to have lost connectivityNothing has changed in the house. I tried new cables, updating firmware, resetting the adapters and nothing seems to help. I tried difference receptacles, even two in the same room, and the best I could get is one "bar" and 11 Mbps speed (per the included utility). When I moved the one adapter back to original location connectivity was lost. Online advice from TRENDnet is to try to find receptacles away from other electronic devices. Nice idea but isn't the point of these things to use electronic devices like computers, televisions, and game consoles which all get plugged in? Am I supposed to put the adapter in another room and run network cable back to my computer?I've often said to others that "something is 'the cheapest' for a reason" and apparently I ignored my own advice. So the TRENDnet TPL-406E2K is going back. While I'm tempted pay to twice as much as a similar kit from one of the big names in networking I think run that cable. I'm sure Amazon sells a nice pair of knee pads. 1Ethernet jacks poorly placedIts three Ethernet jacks are poorly placed, on the top of the unit rather than on the bottom. As a result, Ethernet cables plugged into them tend to block the top receptacle, even though the unit itself doesn't necessarily block the top receptacle. To use the unit with three Ethernet cables plugged in and with a power cord sharing the receptacle, I have to jack the unit an inch from the wall by plugging it into a power tap and then use a flat plug on the top receptacle coming out at a an angle away from the unit. See photo.It looks really big. It's about the size of four iPhone Plusses stacked. Granted, it's way less expensive than four iPhone Plusses.I've heard audible hissing coming from the capacitors or coils of the unit, such as can happen in all sorts of electronic gear when the electronics engineers are not conscientious.The unit's web console says absolutely nothing about the powerline interface, other than to display the MAC address of the powerline interface. Thus the web console does not show any HomePlug diagnostics. It doesn't show a matrix of how well each HomePlug node sees the other, as it easily could.The above being said, I bought a second unit. The two units are installed in opposing corners of the house to give solid Wi-Fi coverage. They're assigned common SSID's and passwords on both the 2.4G and 5G Wi-Fi interfaces. 3Ethernet 10/100You should specify, this product is Ethernet 10/100, I bought it thinking it was Gigabit Ethernet, there is no info about it. When I realize it and tried to cancel the order next day, it was already shipped.Update: I have had a terrible ex`perience with this devices, they lose connectivity after a couple of days. I did'nt manage to solve it for a couple of days, The documentation you can find online, seems to be for different models. I anded up opening a support case to Trendnet. It was awful, the guy that Helped me, didn'nt even knoe the product. I cant return them as I bought from overseas.dont bother buying this. Waste of money. They are working in the moment, and yes the devices connected via ethernet to them are 10/100, I have them 15 mtrs one from the other. But I dont thing I got 25 or 30 mbps between them. 2It is a good solution if you don't want, or you can't, run ethernet wires.My internet service is ADSL, which is supplied via a landline, but I live in an apartment which has only a single telephone outlet located near the entrance door, and I wanted to locate my computer at the other end of the living room. I tried to do that using a WiFi router, but then the router interfered with my cordless phone because the base of the cordless phone were too close to the router. I had three options: a) Separate the router from the base of the cordless phone, b) Ditch the cordless phone, c) Run an Ethernet wire or a telephone wire from the telephone outlet located at the entrance door to the other extreme of the living room. I didn't wanted to run new wires, and ditching the cordless phone or the router was a no-no for me so I decided to give powerline adapters a try.My idea was to leave the ADSL modem near the cordless phone base, relocate the WiFi router to my computer table, use the powerline adapters to connect the ADSL modem to my router and then connect my PC to the router using an Ethernet patchcord, thus leaving the WiFi for my smartphone. That way I could leave the cordless phone where it was, while separating the WiFi router from the base of the cordless phone enough to avoid any undesired interference without having to run any new wires, and that is what I did as soon as I got the Powerline kit.In my current setup, between the AC outlets used by the powerline transmitter and receiver, there must be more or less 40 meters of electrical wire. The adapters were able to make a stable link of 197 Mbps between them, which is more than satisfactory to connect an ADSL modem to a WiFi router. Just for the sake of curiosity, I connected my desktop PC directly to one of the powerline adapters and I noticed that the ethernet port of my PC was able to establish a 1000 Mbps connection between the powerline adapter and the PC. That means that the kit comes with Gigalan ports.I then decided to do some tests and I found the following:a) The distance between the AC outlets used to plug the receiver and the transmiter affects the speed between them. The more the distance is, the slowest the connection is.b) To obtain optimum performance from the adapters, you should connect them directly to the AC outlets. They shouldn't be connected to the output of an UPS, AVR, or to a power strip with noise supression. Why? Because an UPS, AVR, and good quality power strips have filtering circuits which will severely degrade the signal produced by the powerline adapters causing a poor link between them or no link at all. This is very very important to take into account when using powerline adapters.c) The manufacturer recommends that the powerline adapters should be used in the same electrical circuit, same phase, same wire, same everything, in other words, between outlets controlled by the same circuit breaker; but I tested them plugging them between outlets connected by diferent circuit breakers and even different phases, and they still were able to stablish a link. The worst speed I got was when I connected them using two different circuits located at opposite phases, but even in that case I got a 27 Mbps link which is still workable. Seems that the key to success here is to plug them directly into the AC outlets.d) The highest speed I was able to get from the adapters was 480 Mbps, when a plugged them into the same AC outlet. Of course that was just a test because there is no sense in use the adapters that way. Again, the farther I went with the adapters, the slowest the link I got.e) Each powerline adapter has three indicators. There is one named "PL" which lits when the adapters have stablished a link. The user manual doesn't say a word about this, but the PL indicator lits either green or orange. Green means that the adapter was able to make a link of more than 100 Mbps, orange means that the link between the adapters is less than 100 Mbps and weak.f) In my case the stability of the connection is very good. No random disconnects.Considering what I bought the adapters for, I'm very pleased with them. 5Work great most of the time for most peopleIt's very important to read the other reviews here and read some online articles before buying. These DO NOT work in every home, and you'll have no way to tell if they'll work in yours until you try. But when they do work -- and they usually do -- they're great. The one thing I'd emphasize is that the speed you get in practice isn't EVEN CLOSE to what the manufacturers advertise. The manufacturers have devised a ratings loophole the size of a cruise ship that enables them to vastly exaggerate the speed you'll actually get. 500 Megabits per second? Not even. In practice, you'll get in the 30s or maybe low 40s maximum. That's fast enough for the vast majority of home users, and fast enough for a single Netflix UHD stream, but if you need higher speeds, you MUST hire an electrician and have her physically run an Ethernet cable through your walls, no way around it. 4Decent value if you get them when on saleI picked up a pair of these for 19.99. At this price point, they are worth 3 stars. At their normal higher price point, I would give them less stars because they really aren't all that great. Its a good concept, but not quite what they advertise. I imagine if I put one of these on the bottom outlet, and the other on the top outlet directly above, then yes they would get that "500Mbit" speed they advertise. In reality, I get 20-40Mbit consistently from one room to another. Less than 1/10th the advertised maximum speed isn't anything to call home about. For the record, I don't own a very large home either, we're talking maybe 40 feet of actual distance between wall sockets.I do understand that several things matter such as wire quality, how many times the signal passes the breaker panel, yada yada. I'm speaking of a real world use scenario here. In almost all cases, you will be passing through the breaker panel if using these from one part of your house to another. So in a real world scenario, expect real world speeds. In the case of my 1996 era house, I get 20-40Mbit.That all being said, if 20-40Mbit (supposedly more under ideal conditions) suites your needs for whatever it is you're trying to do, these will work fine. If you require more speed, you may want to look outside of power line adapters. 3Powerline Adapter did the job but very slow doing so - As it was out of the box - it did what it said it would do poorlyI needed internet in the back room (approx) 350 feet from router and didn't want to run an Ethernet wire that distance through the attic so I bought this gadget to hook up my Annke CCTV DVR with the wired connection. I gave it 2 stars because it did what it was advertised to do - it connected my DVR from a remote location in the house and the powerline hooked up a connection. The connection however is weak but strong enough to keep the DVR fully functional for web access. I think I expected too much from these adapters. Disappointed and always welcome advise or feed back how to make this hookup better. I did run it through a switch so I can also hook up the laptop but still, the speed was atrocious so I unplugged the laptop and used the wireless connection - much faster than the wire (go figure) Okay - a little sarcasm but the point is, don't expect miracles of speed or any other positive outcomes using adapters. It could be my house wiring but I doubt it. Not an old house. 2Easy to setup. Even comes with ethernet cables. Very pleased with results but needed to get creative to privatize.Easy to setup up. I live in apartment complex with at least 40 WiFi networks within range competing for 2.4 GHZ band. I couldn't stream any video content due to traffic congestion. I installed PowerLine adapter so my Blu-Ray player is now hardwired via ethernet and electrical wiring in my apartment. No more hiccups, interference or problems because I am not using WiFi at all. I have dual band WiFi router and use the 5 GHz band with my Samsung Galaxy S4 cellphone and 10.1 Tablet 2014 edition. So I longer need the 2.4 band unless a guest comes with an IPhone or IPad. They only run on 2.4 band so too bad. They have to deal with traffic.To make your Powerline network private, you have to manually hold reset button on bottom of adapter for 3 seconds and then you have 2 minutes to do the same on all other adapters on network. This generates a random encrypted password for your PowerLine network. However, actually accomplishing this task is close to impossible. It must be done with adapters plugged into wall. It is very difficult to locate the reset button on the bottom blindly with the adapter just 6-8 inches above the floor. I just could not blindly find the tiny reset buttton. Maybe with a mirror underneath it would make it possible.I opted to change password using the TRENDnet utility. You must get the DPW printed on the back of each adapter and enter it into the TRENDnet utiliy before making the change. The lettering is extremely small on back of adapter and need magnifying glass to read it. I just took a close-up photo with my cell phone and could then read the DPW easily from the photo. Once you enter the DPW for each device into utility software, you can change the encrypted password for all the devices on your private PowerLine network simultaneously using the TRENDnet utility. Took a little creativity, but I successfully privatized my PowerLine network with custom password.I am getting 181 Mbps streaming video with my hardwired Blu-Ray player on PowerLine. Much better than trying to watch anything via WiFi on 2.4 GHz band. Finally able to enjoy Amazon and Netflix movies without buffering or sudden disconnect. 5It just works...Very happy with this adapter, especially for the price. I have it plugged in to an outlet in my shed, which is feed by a 100 foot run from my main panel. It paired easily with my other adapters (a mix of different brands - all on different wiring circuits in the house). I have this adapter connected to a POE switch with two 4MP security cameras transmitting video 24/7 to my NVR. I have been running this setup for about a month and there was only 1 brief signal loss reported by the cameras which could have been power blip and nothing to do with the adapter itself. There is no difference in the video quality, etc. compared my other cameras that are run directly to the NVR which tells this adapter is providing a stable and fast connection. As with all Powerline set-ups, your mileage may vary based on many factors, but this one is performing like a champ while doing what I see as some relatively heavy lifting based on the volume of data, the circuitry, and the environment I am exposing it to. I'll be curious to see how it holds up in the cold this winter in my non-climate controlled shed (it did make it through some heat), but since its not rated for the environment I have it in, I wouldn't fault the product/manufacturer if it fails. 5

It could be my house wiring but I doubt it. Not an old house. 2Easy to setup. Even comes with ethernet cables. Very pleased with results but needed to get creative to privatize.Easy to setup up. I live in apartment complex with at least 40 WiFi networks within range competing for 2.4 GHZ band. I couldn't stream any video content due to traffic congestion. I installed PowerLine adapter so my Blu-Ray player is now hardwired via ethernet and electrical wiring in my apartment. No more hiccups, interference or problems because I am not using WiFi at all. I have dual band WiFi router and use the 5 GHz band with my Samsung Galaxy S4 cellphone and 10.1 Tablet 2014 edition. So I longer need the 2.4 band unless a guest comes with an IPhone or IPad. They only run on 2.4 band so too bad. They have to deal with traffic.To make your Powerline network private, you have to manually hold reset button on bottom of adapter for 3 seconds and then you have 2 minutes to do the same on all other adapters on network. This generates a random encrypted password for your PowerLine network. However, actually accomplishing this task is close to impossible. It must be done with adapters plugged into wall. It is very difficult to locate the reset button on the bottom blindly with the adapter just 6-8 inches above the floor. I just could not blindly find the tiny reset buttton. Maybe with a mirror underneath it would make it possible.I opted to change password using the TRENDnet utility. You must get the DPW printed on the back of each adapter and enter it into the TRENDnet utiliy before making the change. The lettering is extremely small on back of adapter and need magnifying glass to read it. I just took a close-up photo with my cell phone and could then read the DPW easily from the photo. Once you enter the DPW for each device into utility software, you can change the encrypted password for all the devices on your private PowerLine network simultaneously using the TRENDnet utility. Took a little creativity, but I successfully privatized my PowerLine network with custom password.I am getting 181 Mbps streaming video with my hardwired Blu-Ray player on PowerLine. Much better than trying to watch anything via WiFi on 2.4 GHz band. Finally able to enjoy Amazon and Netflix movies without buffering or sudden disconnect. 5It just works...Very happy with this adapter, especially for the price. I have it plugged in to an outlet in my shed, which is feed by a 100 foot run from my main panel. It paired easily with my other adapters (a mix of different brands - all on different wiring circuits in the house). I have this adapter connected to a POE switch with two 4MP security cameras transmitting video 24/7 to my NVR. I have been running this setup for about a month and there was only 1 brief signal loss reported by the cameras which could have been power blip and nothing to do with the adapter itself. There is no difference in the video quality, etc. compared my other cameras that are run directly to the NVR which tells this adapter is providing a stable and fast connection. As with all Powerline set-ups, your mileage may vary based on many factors, but this one is performing like a champ while doing what I see as some relatively heavy lifting based on the volume of data, the circuitry, and the environment I am exposing it to. I'll be curious to see how it holds up in the cold this winter in my non-climate controlled shed (it did make it through some heat), but since its not rated for the environment I have it in, I wouldn't fault the product/manufacturer if it fails. 5
