The Netgear XAV101 adapters worked after I installed them and improved the connectivity speed by a factor 10 over the Linksys wireless router.
However, when I returned from a business trip, I found I had no internet connection because the Netgear XAV101 powerline adapters no longer were communicating with one another (no powerline light).
Netgear's Help desk is absolutely HORRIBLE : I was passed around to three different agents, they took the serial numbers and my name, and wanted me to connect my computer directly to my DSL modem to check my IP address. After over 40 minutes I finally gave up.
Interestingly enough, the powerline adapters started working again without me having done anything to the equipment after I hung up from their Help desk.......I am disturbed that I don't know the root cause of this outage.
Bottom line : the product is great when it is working, but Netgear's Help desk is not helpful at all. The user manual is also not helpful at all to troubleshoot such problems which seems to be typical for this industry.
