Belkin Powerline AV+ 200Mb/s (quick review)

(Republish of an older blog as I wanted to report I still use this product as of 7/20/11 and it is still running great!

I have a desktop pc downstairs in my home that had been connecting to our wireless router upstairs.
Our family got so fed up with wireless disconnecting I decided to look for other options. I had been reluctant to use powerline connections due to their speed. Then I saw the new Belkin Powerline AV+ at 200Mb/s and figured these were worth a try.

The setup on these could not have been easier. I put one upstairs by my router and the other downstairs by my PC and decided to reset the security code, which is basically just pressing a button on one and then the other (best to do that in the same outlet to make it easy first then move them). They sync’d up quickly and put the units back in place.
I plugged them into the router and desktop and away they went.
I had a direct connection, the connection seemed fast and available with no disconnects.
Setup was easy, use was easy, I have not measure performance but seems fine for normal internet usage. I have not had any disconnection issues at all. We are very happy with these units.
If you want to deplace a wireless connection due to disconnects on a wireless connection to a desktop pc, these seem to be a great option. I’m even considering another unit to use when I’m stationary with my laptop!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars.
