To set up, plug one adapter into a nearby outlet and connect it to your router using the included Ethernet cable.

Then, take the second adapter and plug it in and connect it to any device, also using an Ethernet cable. Your powerline adapters should automatically detect and establish a strong AV600 connection.

Pretty out-dated device. I have retired my gigabit powerline adapters recently and this AV600 is about the same I use before I got the gigabit ones. They are problematic if you are trying to use them to set up access points. You cannot use a surge protector or UPS with it and it would lose connection during power outage. It is also very sensitive to powerline noise. Whenever a heavy duty appliance (such as a portable AC) is running, it lost connection. Since many good mesh network are available, there is really no reason to invest on these powerline adapters anymore.

Update: Just checked that this is from 2012. Time to move on.

Thumbs up for the old times' sake. Great devices which had their place when Wi-Fi wasn't as fast, as stable or as ubiquitous. Nowadays, many of those client devices which needed Powerline adapters may have been replaced by newer ones which can take advantage of Wi-Fi..

I agree that a good wifi Mesh system can provide far better coverage than what was available even 5years ago, but I have to admit I still get much better ping for games with powerline adapters + ethernet NIC, even if I am getting better througoutput throuhg Mesh WiFi.

As always, it depends on your application.

Great for places where wifi can't reach although I'd advise going with the newer 2000mbps adapters.

I'd second both of these.

I had powerline adapters for YEARS. Until I got the 2000 mbps one, I couldn't do any real video playback through my home network (and by that I mean MKV files off a NAS to an NVidia Shield TV elsewhere in the house). Even then, when I got into some high bit-rate stuff, it wasn't enough. I went to MoCA adapters and now I can hit everywhere in the house with some pretty high bitrate 4K stuff.

Save the money to get a mesh or wifi adapter for pc. This is for something less than 10mb speed. The signal degree a lot.
But it's handy for the device that don't have wifi.

Zyxel HLA4205. I think it was Fry's who had a sale on them a LONG time ago.

So just like powerline adapters, these are also auto switching correct? Like I can hook up 3 or more of them, as long as the coax are connected to splitters right?
