  • The ZyXel HD Powerline Adapter 500Mbps is a great-value set of Powerline adapters that performed excellently in our real-world speed tests. It's the smallest Powerline adapter we've seen, and will blend into any home environment. It lacks Wi-Fi and has only one ethernet port on each adapter but it's a real bargain that performs well.

    When you plug in the ZyXEL powerline adapter, all three LEDs flash during initialization. Until you plug in a second adapter, the powerline network icon stays dark. In fact, I noticed that the icon lit up almost immediately after plugging in the other adapter in the same room.

  • On the Configuration screen, I noticed the utility was trying to read the network topology using my Wi-Fi adapter. After I switched it over to Ethernet, the two ZyXEL powerline adapters displayed almost immediately. At the same time, HomePlug AV packets started flying through Wireshark. Without doing anything else, I tested my pings and they started working!

  • We’re not know for our math skills, or our reading skills, or our problem-solving skills. But as near as we can tell, if you really want to run your home network over your regular old electrical wiring – yes, Aunt Gladys, they can do that now – you’ll need one of these Zyxel PowerLine Ethernet Adapters between your router and the AC outlet, and then one for each computer you want to connect to your fancy new network.

Although wireless connections are temperamental, power-line networking isn’t always perfectly reliable either. Everyday appliances can really affect its speed, and since 802.11n wireless is fast enough for most people, 500Mbps power-line adaptors such as the Zyxel HD Powerline Adapter PLA4205 are really only of interest to anyone who has a real need for that extra performance. Anyone who regularly transfers huge files (such as entire system drive backups) between computers and network storage devices would fall into that category. However, to take advantage of the PLA4205, every link in your networking chain must support Gigabit ethernet.
