From the Manufacturer

TvApp

Give your amazing new SmartTV the internet connection it was designed for.
Your new SmartTV and game system can do amazing things like stream stunning HD movies and let you play intense, multi-player games with opponents around the world. The fact is you'll only get the most out of your system with a wired Ethernet connection. But who has the time or money to wire their whole house with Ethernet? Wi-Fi's not the answer; it's convenient, but it's slow and unreliable. This is why we created PowerNet.







WiFiVsPowerNet

Wi-Fi is great for email…but for entertainment, PowerNet is better. It's a no-brainer.
Today's entertainment devices need a more consistent signal than Wi-Fi provides. Apple TV®, Hulu Plus, VUDU HD Movies, Netflix, high-resolution video games, Amazon Prime – they're all much more fun with a super-fast connection. PowerNet turns any outlet in your house into the ultra-high-speed internet port you need for lag-free gaming and high-resolution movies.





TurnYourOutlet Turn any power outlet into an ultra-high speed, hardwired Internet port.
It’s easy to instantly turn your home's existing electrical wiring into a high-speed Ethernet network: Just plug in the two PowerNet modules and they automatically connect to each other. Plug your devices into the module and you've got blazing fast 200 Mbps streaming. Need more locations? Just pick up another PowerNet module. All Monster PowerNet modules work effortlessly with each other.





Installation is as easy as 1…2…3…

The exterior plastic wrap around the product was cracked/cut leading me to believe that this is old stock and potentially been banged around. Since the damage was to the outer edges and not the product (from what I could visually see) I decided to keep the product. I opened it and followed the operating instructions provided and everything worked as intended. Receiving damaged/open product packaging a little disconcerting but nothing that couldn't be rectified by Amazon (if a return was necessary).

HASH(0x9fa4d768) out of 5 stars Monster PowerNet 200 Turns Connections from Wireless into Wired March 7 2010
By Linda I. Caldwell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
With my new Samsung Blueray, not only can I pop in a Blueray disk but my model has Netflix, Pandora, You Tube, and Blockbuster download and play capability via wireless connection. Problem was my router is upstairs on one end of the house and the Blueray is downstairs on the other end of the house, some 60+ feet distance; and not even a linksys WRT610N would send enough signal to get better than a 10% success rate on the download. Most of the time, it just chugged and chugged and then timed out. Solution: Monster Powernet 200 which sends the signal through your electrical wiring. It takes 2 units of equipment to get started - thus it's called a starter kit. You just plug one into a wall outlet at your PC and connect an ethernet cable from the Powernet to the router. Plug the other Powernet unit into a wall outlet at your Blueray and connect an ethernet cable from it to your Blueray player. Then go into setting on your Blueray and change the connection type from wireless to cable. Now the movies download in about 10 seconds. Another plus is now that the first 2 units are installed, I can add additional units in another room of the house where I have an ethernet ready TV. My only word of caution is that the Powernet unit plugs into both sockets of a typical wall outlet, then compensates by having an outlet on both sides of the unit; but not all plugs may fit into it because of angled plug shapes.

HASH(0x9fa4d990) out of 5 stars high-speed networking that is somewhat wireless at wired speeds Feb. 12 2010
By NativeRogue - Published on Amazon.com

I loved my network-able Blue-ray player I purchased, but I hated the wireless adapter which left me always praying my Netflix or U-tube content would actually play. Same with my networkable TV, I'd always lose the radio or the news. My PS3 online gaming was a joke wirelessly. I dreaded running a network cable from my livingroom into my bedroom. Such a downer for such great products.

However, I found this little device and AMAZINGLY everything works flawlessly! It's literally plug and play. High-speed networking that's virtually wireless!!! You need one on your router end to plug "wire" a Cat5/ethernet cable into and one for wherever you want to have a "wired" connection for your equipment. You use a Cat5/ethernet cable to "wire" your components into the Monster PowerNet which is plugged into the wall. No cables between rooms, only between your router to PowerNet which plugs into the outlet and one from your components to the PowerNet 200 or 300.

You may have to reset your components from wireless to wired, but after that, it just works! NO more jagged netflix, waiting for info to load, missed songs or slow online gaming. It actually downloads the best quality off netflix. I'm really happy with this. I'm used to wiring and setting up computers, home theatre, and complicated set-ups. I was really amazed at how easy it was.

Good luck and buy it! It really is worth it if you use networkable products, or even if you have a wireless deadspot in your home. I'm glad I found this because it's much cheaper than running network cables through my home which was going to run me ($3,000-$4,500).

BTW the difference between the PowerNet 300 and PowerNet 200 is the PowerNet 300 allows for more than one component (4 ethernet ports) in a room. The PowerNet 200 has only one ethernet connection. The PowerNet 200 & 300 also gives you some surge protection & line conditioning (clean power filtering) which erases some of the "buzz/noise" or interference in your walls to give a faster connection.

HASH(0x9fa4dbf4) out of 5 stars Happy camper Aug. 7 2012
By Michael M. - Published on Amazon.com
Wanted to run ethernet cable to the master bedroom to get internet connection to watch Roku. Router is Dlink dir-655. Wi-fi signal does not reach because of walls blocking reception. Did a little research and found out about Powerline adapters. First one bought from Ebay was a Linksys plk200 - Item D.O.A. - Returned item and searched for another kit. Found Powerline Powernet 200 again from Ebay. Got the kit for $50, free shipping. Item arrived a week later.

I plugged one supplied cat5 in the router, plugged the adapter in the power outlet - lights came on. Went in the master's bedroom in the back of the house (a good 55-60 feet away from the first adapter). Plugged in the other Powernet 200, lights also came on. Plugged in the laptop via supplied cat5 and went to speedtest.net. Results = 22.5 mbps download, 5 mbps upload off of Cablevision's promised speed of 15/5. Tested Roku and no lag, no spinning icon trying to download movie contents.

The adapters are pretty much plug and play. They do however get hot. Placement is crucial. Not recomended to plug behind or against furnitures/bed, If you must, then make sure it gets clearance for proper ventilation.

Am I happy? If my kids are happy watching Roku in my bedroom, I am!

HASH(0x9fa4db70) out of 5 stars Works as advertised Nov. 25 2009
By Launchpad - Published on Amazon.com

Worked fine out of the box, no complicated setup. Worked OK through two different power strips, but got slightly better results using it directly in the wall socket, and putting the power strip into the included plug.

NOTE: this requires a standard two port wall socket arrangement (there is an additional ground for a second socket), which isn't detailed in the documentation, so if you have unusual power sockets this may not work.

HASH(0x9ea6f174) out of 5 stars Review of Powernet 200 StarterKit & 300 June 6 2010
By Happy Shopper - Published on Amazon.com

Received the above items before estimated delivery date. I had the Powernet 200 StarterKit and 300 up and running within 45 minutes including reading instructions. Installed one 200 in basement,1 on main floor and 300 on 3rd floor of condo. I'm very pleased with these items they make it so easy to have wired internet, without running cables in walls, thus saving thousands of dollars for pro installation. I would recommend these items to anyone. I have had them now for 3 days and are still working very well. Thanks to all of you who reviewed these items before me. I tryed them because of your thoughts on them. I could not be happier with these items.
