|I have just purchased two of your 85Mbps Home Plug adapters. I ordered over the internet on Monday morning and they were at home waiting for me when I got home from work on Tuesday evening. I connected one to my router - took about a minute. So far so good. I plugged the second one in next to my computer in the 'den' above my garage, about 70m away from
the house but all wired in. The light came on to signify it had made a connection with the other Home Plug. Plugged the other end into my ethernet port on the computer. And hey presto, connected to my network. The hardest work in all this was walking to the garage!!! I am totally amazed by both your level of service and the simplicity with which this all happened. I had no idea your product even existed until a work colleague mentioned Home Plugs. I will definitely be recommending them to anybody who is setting up a network. Many thanks for your service.

|"I've been using six Solwise PL-85PE 85Mbps Ethernet Home Plug Adapters for the last few months. They connect together a Mac iBook in my wife's office, laptops used in the lounge and bedrooms, the Linux network in my office, the laser printer in the hallway, the two PCs in my son's room and, of course, the broadband router. Unlike the Wi-Fi network they replaced the adapters have been reliable, trouble-free, trivially easy to set up and suffer no signal attenuation or blackspots.
Thanks for an excellent product."

|'I have to say I am impressed with the devices. I plugged one in the house next to the ADSL router (off an extension lead) and the other in my office which is 150ft away from the house on a separate spur and has a local distribution box (again this one was on an extension lead to get it near the office switch). Without doing anything else, the network came alive and the office now shares the house internet connection. Later I installed the client software and discovered, to my delight, that they were connection at 39Mbps. So, in all I am very impressed with the product and your service; well done.'
