Awesome product, I'm getting faster speeds outside of WiFi range than I did standing right next to the router. Set up is super easy and two network cables are included. Solid 10/10.

This little device works like a charm. I can't testify for high speed networks, but for my 10mbps home network it gives the same speed over the powerline adapter as straight from the router (between 8-9 mbps). Real plug and play. Did not require any installation and worked straight from the box.
