    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!

    My situation is probably very common. Wireless router in 2nd floor study, poor connectivity on the other side of the house on the first floor. This SEEMED like a perfect solution. Wrong. First, the "installation instructions" are useless - maybe if they didn't have to print 7 different versions in 8 different languages they could actually have one or two REAL installation guides, but no - no install guide to help at all. The "Genie" config software stinks - and since there are no instructions on what to change - if anything - what good is it? Eventually, after about 45-minutes of blindly trying things, "Genie" suddenly saw the adapter connected to the router AND the access point BUT the problems with intermittent drop-off and painful slowness remained for wireless devices was the same. Wasted a few hours before boxing it back up and returning it.
    I'm sure there are eggheads out there who can get this thing working, but it seems to me NetGear is trying to be plug-n-play - so you don't need an install guide - but it is definitely not

    Good product

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    this is overall a good product. When I installed the powerlink in my office that has very weak wireless signal, it improved the connectivity a lot, making it easy to surf in the Internet in a room that I had never good connectivity before. I just don't give five stars to this product because it sometimes looses connectivity. Additionally I like the lan port that it has, so I was able to connect my wired network printer, making it easy to print out wirelessly from my laptop and even through e-print from my cell phone and tablet.

    It was relatively easy to set up. It's extended the Wifi to the other side of the house where it was previously spotty.

    Really Happy

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    Living in an old home in Baltimore is great, love the location, love the ambiance, love being able to walk to the inner harbor, having said that don't love how difficult it was to get a wifi signal in our bedroom, especially when the signal was rather robust one room over on the same floor. Did some research and found this little set up. I have used range extenders and boosters before with varying degrees of success. I am happy to report that this is more than a varying degree. Speed is great in our room now, we can stream amazon, music, download and upload to websites, and I can actually play games in a room that previously had a hard time streaming tunein. Would reccomend this to anyone that needs a solid connection in an otherwise inaccessible room.

    Worked well when first configured and working. When I needed to set it up to another computer, it was difficult to reset and configure to the new. Staples was not help and they are shor ttech emplyees and at home assistance is not available. I'll figure it out.
