Customer Comment - 'Delighted to report that the PL-14E appears to work flawlessly with net2plug! Installation was a breeze. I programmed the PL-14E with the same password as the existing net2plug, then restarted the computers to access the new network address direct from the hub. Browsing speed is dramatically increased now the data no longer flows through a shared computer. All our machines can now play high-resolution video from the BBC website.'
