Product Reviews
Linksys PowerLine PLEK500 - bridge - desktop is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plug and play The situation: Linksys wireless N router upstairs wired to cable modem, computer, printer. Wi Fi in far end of house and shop (separate outbuilding) kind of sketchy. Brother-in-law had extra Linksys Wireless G router he gave me. Set it up as a cascade router,, configured to use Channel 6, original router Channel 1, verified they both worked and were transmitting. Unplugged the second router and installed the PLEK500's (one upstairs and one at the other end of the house). Plugged the cascade router back into the PLEK500 at the end of the house - instant wi-fi! Haven't tested transmission speeds but initial use seems to be plenty fast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked perfectly Not everyone will be fortunate enough to have house wiring compatible with the device, but for those who do, these adapters could not possibly have been easier to set up and to use. They've been working great, and have been more than fast enough to support low-ping PvP games.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Know your household wiring. I have AT&T gigabit internet with speeds exceeding 600MB/sec but only about 15MB/sec wireless. Bought this to wire my gaming laptop to the modem through my condo's wiring. I'm not getting but about 30MB/sec with this product, an improvement but not what I expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I highly recommend it. Easy installation. Literally just plug and play! Upload and download speeds are excellent and easily 100% faster than my wi-fi connection at N-speeds.I've been so impressed with the initial pair that I bought that I'm planning to bring in another pair to replace a couple of my wi-fi network connections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb features. Bought this item as an alternative to hard wiring the house. My best decision lately. Plug it in and the device was immediately recognized by the network. No hassle, no headaches. Hardest part was unpacking it (it took seconds).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment I've made They work wonderfully! I purchased these when I was thinking about drilling holes through my nice wood floor to run a switch to my entertainment center. I saw these online and thought that it might be bad investment, but I've never been happier! It puts a network right where I want it! I have not tried more than one pair these, but the one pair was all I needed!
