No more wireless!, March 19 2012
I wanted to reduce the wireless signals in my home. Although there are probably about 6 other signals from neighbors still going through my place, at least it's 1 less signal.
Anyways, a friend of mine told me about using the power outlets as an alternative to getting a second cable modem. Ordered it online, got it the next day and won't go back to wireless!
This thing is the best. I'm ordering another one actually to have 4 adapters in my home.
I noticed another review where the person said that the signal keeps dropping. I found the same thing when using the cable filters on my power bar. If you read other reviews, they say to forget using the cable filter, particularly the one from APC surge arrest, which I had. The power bar is good, it's just the cable filter appears to be of no use and actually makes your cable modem worse by dropping your signal every once in a while.
After I connected my internet cable directly into my modem, intermittent signal loss stopped.
Also note that the instructions for the powerline adapters say not to plug the power into a power bar.
