    Provided strong signal in far corner of basement (I use it as a wireless transmitter). A little difficult to set-up with an Apple Airport (follow the directions on CNET site). We use it with macs, PCs, and iphones. Seems like the two outlets must be on the same circuit breaker box. Works well!

    When I first heard of this product and how it was suppose to work, I thought it sounded great. However, I could never get it to work properly. I know I had it installed correctly because the Wifi portion of it worked great. However, the main reason I purchased it was to get the powerline hardwiring to reach my bedroom. That part of the product never worked properly. I even spent 45 minutes on the phone with Netgear's tech support. They could not get it to work right either. In the end, I returned it.

    Helps extend signal

    By ch

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    I had originally purchased a Netgear router that was supposed to be strong enough to cover my whole house and yard, but our wi-fi devices could not get a strong enough signal and were really slow. Adding this extender was fairly straight-forward to install, although I had to figure out how to password protect it. It was also supposed to tie in with my existing network so that my devices automatically captured the strongest signal as I worked around the house and yard, and it did not do that. We have to sign in and switch to the new signal manually, but it does work and we now have a strong signal wherever we are in the house.

    I was unable to get Netflix in the basement in my craft room. With Netgear Powerline I have a good signal and can even get online on the back poach now. Took a little while to set up but I think it was just us. Love it and worth the money.

    This unit did a nice job of connecting a computer wirelessly that is about 60 ft away and behind a wall. It is fast. It installed quickly and easily.

    good coveratge

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    easy to set up and easy to use. the only drawback is that the green light appears (for signal strenght) only in certain places - even a few feet in either direction changes the strength to amber.

    Works Great

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    Using to increase WIFI signal throughout the house after moving home office with Xfinity wireless router. Ethernet port is great and allows me to plug in another router / access point. Getting the powerline with WIFI access point then gives me three access points throughout the house providing great coverage and no lag.
