Powerline Adapters:
This is actually only $24.99, not a bad price for a set with a 4-port adapter.

Corrected. Sorry, C&P error. Have you ever used any Actiontec products? I thought the price was good, but the reviews left a lot to be desired. 3 Star Average on Amazon I think with people either seeing it was great or really bad.

Of course, with Powerline in particular, home wiring can be a variable issue with performance. But the Netgear and Zyxel models tend to have much more positive experiences on the whole.

I want to say I have, maybe not at my place but purchased and installed for others. At this price, for someone on a budget or with a basic need, I would not hesitate recommending it.

The truth is, most budget-priced networking products (not only Powerline but wireless etc.) have split reviews and average reliability. Frown Still, I would not hesitate recommending it.

That one was correct when I posted it. Newegg raised the price by $10.... which is pretty lame.

I know, because I copied it from this thread when I was looking up old pricing history or the Archer C7 and figured... hey, it's a little more, but it comes with a $10 Gift Card... so I guess it's okay.

Well put. Sounds like the debate about hard drive reliability. laugh out loud

Not sure exactly what I'm looking at as far as the spec's go but I really need a wifi repeater/extender. What's the difference between the Edimax EW-7438RPn and the ASUS RT-N12/D1? Aside from general browsing, internet will be used to stream media like Netflix, and online gaming.
Thanks!

Powerlines are much better than extenders. It's turns your plus into lan. A wired connection is a100 times better than Wi-Fi. Make sure the outlets you plug them in are on the same breaker box tho and you can't use these with extension cords

Are any of these range extenders utilize electrical wiring or do I have to run cat 5 cable to them.

Most of what you said is so wrong, I don't even know how to correct it.

Powerlines turn your electrical plug outlets into a lan line. Wired connections with powerlines are better than a wireless connection with a Wi-Fi extender..

Please do your research before trying to correct someone who's right. I've been using powerlines for a long time now. They must run on the same circuit breakers

I see, thanks Burton!

I'm not looking to run wired as the layout of our place is a little funky, what would be best for wireless?

For a router? I love asus rt routers. I personally use a n66u and it's been going strong for 4 years. Great gui interface to setup. Netgear nighthawks are great as well. For extenders I'd look into tplink
