Pros I could not get this item to work as advertised. I would not recommend it to anyone.
Cons The unit connected to your router, and the unit that "extends your wireless network ANYWHERE in your home" need to be on the same breaker. You cannot just plug it in anywhere.
Summary Cisco does not advertise this fact on the web or even on the box it comes in (which I consider to be a deceptive omission.) The unit connected to your router, and the unit that "extends your wireless network ANYWHERE in your home" (<--exactly what appears on the box and in most product descriptions) actually need to be on the same circuit breaker. I cannot imagine a scenario in which a single power circuit in a house built to code would be a longer run of wire than your wireless signal would reach. The 100 year old, thick as a stack of bricks house I live in should be the poster child home for this type of equipment IF you could just plug it in anywhere you wanted BUT YOU CANNOT. Believe me. Save yourself hours on the phone with support trying to figure out why this product does not work as advertised. Pay your ISP ~$60 to drop a new hard line and plug a real network extender into it. If you decide to look for other power line adapters I highly suggest you research whether or not they will work when plugged into outlets on different breakers in your home/office. I would also recommend learning a little something about the electrical layout in hour home or office to make sure you can get out of the same room and still be on the same breaker I would expect in most cases you will not.
Thanks for your submission!
