"Really works just as advertised, as easy as plugging in and going. Set up a router as an access point in a spotty area and now I can get signal where I couldn't before."

"I am extremely impressed with how small these have become and how easy they are to set up. You can now have a network/internet port anywhere you have an outlet."

"All I did was plug in the adapters, plug in the Cat5 cables, power on the DVR and the router, push the two link buttons (not at the same time) on the adapters and I was streaming live video on my android phone. Awesome!"

"My router is on the other side of my 2,000 sf single level home and I was getting poor Wi-Fi speed, so I thought I'd give this a try; it was super easy to install, literally plug and play, and now I get the same speed as if I were plugged into the router."

"I moved the second unit to the den that is down 2 flights of stairs and on the other side of the house. Plugged it in and got the green (3rd) light instantly. Plugged in the Ethernet cable and my son's Xbox 360. We tested with streaming Hulu videos and game downloads. Super fast, just like at the cable router. He can now game without the constant dropped Wi-Fi signal...Works great."

Greeting from the HomePlug President

HomePlug has been enjoying a successful year thus far. With more members announcing HomePlug AV2 products, we are seeing our next-generation technology take hold across the world. HomePlug also hosted a full technology seminar at COMPUTEX Taipei, where we additionally announced the availability of certification in Asia with China Academy of Telecommunication Research of MIIT (CAICT).

Later this fall, we look forward to expanding our international outreach by presenting with CAICT at China's PT/EXPO COMM, and hosting our second dedicated technology summit in Latin America at Brazil's Futurecom event.

We thank our members for continuing to promote our latest technologies and helping us secure our position as the world leader in powerline.
