From the Manufacturer

Easily network your home using existing electrical outlets                       

The Linksys Powerline Network Kit contains a single-port Powerline Adapter, and a four-port Powerline Adapter, which let you easily create a network using the existing electrical outlets in your home. Now you don't have to drill holes in walls and climb through the attic or cellar to install network cables--just use the wires that already run through the building.

With Powerline Network Adapters, you can connect computers or any other wired Ethernet device using the HomePlug 1.0 with Turbo network standard. They also work with older HomePlug 1.0 devices. Adding devices to the network is as simple as plugging a Powerline Adapter into an electrical outlet, and connecting your Ethernet-equipped devices to the built-in Ethernet ports. Additional devices can be connected to the same network using additional Powerline Adapters plugged into any electrical outlet anywhere in the house.
              
Once your computers are connected to the network, they can share resources like printers and storage space, and all kinds of files--music, digital pictures, and documents.  With up to 85Mbps data rates, you can play lag-free head-to-head network computer games, and run applications like Voice over IP telephony. Plug your Internet connected router into a Powerline Adapter and you'll be able to get to the Internet from any Powerline attached computer in the house.

The Linksys Powerline Network kit gets you started with easy, no new wires home or office networking.

HASH(0xa3ffd8ac) out of 5 stars Easy install and solved wi-fi problem Feb. 10 2009
By SAGA - Published on Amazon.com
My wi-fi experiences a problem in a certain part of the house. I had tried different routers including 'N' and the signal would randomly and frequently drop in this one area. I installed the PowerLine in under 30 minutes. The two computers connected have not experienced any outages ever since. Don't forget NOT to plug either unit into a power strip or APS. It will only work if the plugs are directly into the wall socket.

HASH(0xa3f7e8a0) out of 5 stars Easy, quick, no complaints Nov. 21 2008
By Thomas Mccarthy - Published on Amazon.com
They seemed kind of cheap and plasticky when I took them out of the box, but they work like a charm. It took literally five minutes to plug these guys in, and I had my DVR and 360 hooked into my network with no fuss, no installs, no configuration, zip.

Absolutely fantastic, and way simpler than wireless.

HASH(0xa4738f30) out of 5 stars Perfect solution for my networking problem Feb. 15 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I live in a two story home, and my cable modem and router are located downstairs, as well as my primary computer. But I have a second computer in an armoire upstairs, and the enclosure makes my wireless signal very spotty. I usually get one bar, and the signal drops quite a bit. I also have a Dish DVR upstairs that benefits from a network connection as well.

I just plugged in the two boxes in this kit, and plugged my 2nd computer and DVR into one box. I was up an running in 5 minutes, and the network speed is so much better. I now can't tell the difference in speed between my direct wired connection downstairs to the powerline connection upstairs.

And if I ever add a 360, PS3, or Blu-Ray player to my upstairs enertainment unit, I still have 2 network ports open for them.

Verified Purchase
Works well when on the same 120vac circuit and over short distances. Returned the item because it would not even cover a 1200sq ft single level home.

Very easy to set up and works well when it gets connetivity.

HASH(0xa43ffa08) out of 5 stars Buyer Beware! Oct. 6 2009
By J. D. Jacob - Published on Amazon.com
After spending 3 and a half hours with customer support over this product trying to establish a connection. I find out about the non existent "small print". The power line only works if all the parts are on the same "line" or circuit breaker.

This is no where listed on the box, in the information card nor the pdf file. It took 3 1/2 hours for a Senior Level Tech from Linksys to tell me that lame excuse.

So, I'm usualy confident in promoting linksys products, but not this one unless your sure that what your connecting too is all on the same circuit breaker.

Honestly I think its just a bunch of junk, lame kind of excuse for them not knowing what to do.

I use AT&T's U-verse 2wire router, the R.G. (residential gateway -router) is in the garage, the desktop I was attempting to connect to it is in the furthest corner of the house(aprox 60-75' away maybe), and the wireless signal is only one bar at best. Thus I was looking for an alternative solution. I picked this thing up, thinking, hey great, looking at the box, talking to store people, it works on your House's electrical system. I did say HOUSE right, that's what the box implies, the literature, and the store tech's all say. No where does it say... "Single Power LINE CIRCUIT-Breaker Network kit!"

Sooo, I'm sure this would work great for some. But for me, and others who do not get that instant connection within a few minutes of setting it up, or who's house is divided up unto different circuit breakers, LINKSYS will run you around and finally give up saying its your House, or your Circuit breaker.

So, onward with the search for a better connection.
