A Wi-Fi Solution 2X Faster than Traditional Repeaters
The PWR51WK01 Kit features a high-performance Powerline Network Adapter and Wireless Network Extender, designed to deliver exceptional network performance and reliability to wired- and wireless-connected devices throughout your entire home. The kit allows you to extend your networking in two ways: through the electrical wires already installed in your home, and through wireless networking. It's the ultimate network extender, and gives you added flexibility when connecting today's Internet-dependent devices, including notebooks, tablets, smartphones, and mobile gaming consoles.
Why is the Wireless Network Extender + Powerline Network Adapter Kit Better than Other Solutions?
There are some distinct advantages. Wireless repeaters connect to your router and your devices simultaneously, so 50% of your bandwidth is already used up as soon as you connect to the network. The PWR51WK01 Kit connects to your router through the electrical wires already in place in your home, doubling performance. Depending on where you place the Wireless Network Extender, you can get rid of wireless dead spots in your home, resulting in a strong and reliable wireless network that extends to your backyard, garage, or second-story bedrooms.
How Does it Work?
It's simple. The Powerline Network Adapter uses your home electrical lines to create a high-speed wired network throughout your home. Then, the Wireless Network Extender transmits the network signal from an electrical outlet, creating a wireless network

This thing works great! In a 5 bedroom house, we couldn't get a decent wifi signal in 2 of the rooms, the garage, or out back by the pool. Now I have a great signal everywhere! It's really simple. Just plug it in and connect. And it's plenty fast for multiple devices and streaming Netflix.
Died after just a few days, bad radio. I have legacy powerline adapters that never had an issue but this one seems to be of poor quality.
I read the reviews and the item's description and decided to try this for my detached garage, which has poor Wi-Fi coverage. When I received it, it wouldn't link. So I called tech support. One of their first questions was "is the garage on an electrical sub-panel?" Yes, it is. "Then it won't work." Well, OK, I understand that a sa limitation of the product, but it would have been nice for that to be clearly stated in the description somewhere. I returned it to Amazon (who is always great about returns). Before I did, I tried it inside the house ... it worked, but it took two tries resetting the devices before they would link, and it took over 10 minutes each time for the devices to link. So I guess ... average product, and I deducted stars because their description makes it sound like it works easily everywhere, when in fact there is a major drawback (i.e., that it won't work across a sub-panel) that should be clearly stated.
