    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

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    If you need to extend the wi-fi in your home, this is a much better solution than a "Wi-Fi Extender or Booster". The powerline technology gives you full speed wherever you place it. I have one client where I have installed 3 of these to cover a big big old home. Fantastic. Set is easy if you follow the directions.

    Works as recommended for my application

    Comments about NETGEAR Powerline 500Mbps WiFi Access Point XWBN5201:

    I was in the store searching for a wifi booster, extender, etc. The manager asked if he could help with my search. He directed me to this product as a possibility and I purchased it. I can receive a signal fom my house into our back yard area over 50 feet. Glad I purchased this. I did my own research on this type of product before going to the store.
