NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter Driver
Powerline 500, 1 Port
Because you needed to get an internet or network connection to a non wireless capable device NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter is nowhere near your router. Or even an upstairs PC that you want on a wired connection.
Thanks to a very clever team at Cisco way back in the early days of the 21st Century we now have these fantastic devices called Homeplugs that you can just plug into an electrical outlet and instantly create Internet access and network connectivity in areas of the house that you previously thought impossible without resorting to a drill. The very latest version from Netgear is the Powerline XAVBwhich offers a twin pack of adapters with a gigabit ethernet port in each one, along with a Mbps Powerline interface, HomePlug AV NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter and two 2m NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter cables.
The question is, how well this new version actually perform in the real world and can it reach the speeds NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter Made from hard white plastic and clearly fitting the Nano name, these little adaptors are barely larger than a standard plug and as such will fit without obstruction NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter a standard double wall plug or 4 way socket extension. At the bottom we have the small pin hole for performing a factory reset and the single Gigabit Ethernet port, whilst on the left hand side is the security button for enabling the bit encryption.
At the top and bottom we have slots for ventilation, as these units do get slightly warm after extensive use, although not to any levels that should cause concern. The first will light NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter green when connected to the power and in power saving mode, where it uses less than 0. The second light will come on once the adaptor is connected to the Powerline network and this is where Netgear's Pick-a-Plug feature comes in very handy.
It allows you to pick the electrical outlet with the strongest link rate, which is indicated by the Powerline LED being either Green, Amber or Red. Green indicates the best link, with a speed of over 80Mbps, followed by Amber with Mbps and then Red NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter under 50Mbps.
Ethernet Over Power Computer Age Systems
This is an excellent feature, giving you an instant indication of where best to place the adaptors for optimal use. The final light is the Ethernet LED and it comes on when the adapter is connected via the Ethernet port to NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter powered-on device. Literally within about 30 seconds or so of plugging each unit in, you can be up and running with a fully connected network.
The first adaptor needs to be connected in NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter same location as your router and the second in the room nearest your device. Then just press the security button for 2 seconds on the first, run like crazy well walk really, as you have up to 2 minutes to the second device and press the button on that one for 2 NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter.
Once the Power LED has stopped flashing, NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter will have enabled the bit encryption and your new Powerline network will be fully secured. Adding a third or more Powerline adaptors is also a piece of cake as you just plug them in, NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter the security button and away you go! It's worth mentioning that there were only two available for review, so we can't verify how the network performs with a third or more homeplugs connected.
Finding the best socket near your chosen device is probably the most thought you will have to put into setting up these adapters; it really couldn't be any simpler.
Netgear Powerline 500 (XAVB5201) Review
In the package you also get two 2m Ethernet cables for connecting to your router and your chosen device, but should you require longer runs then clearly you can buy additional cables. That's all you need to do and your Powerline network is now fully setup and NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter. Gone are your days of ruining perfectly good walls to run cables to your non-wireless network devices!
Performance and Testing Firstly with the performance it should be noted that the quoted Mbps speed combines both the uplink and downlink speeds, so theoretically the maximum you should be able to get is Mbps. As the Pick-a-Plug feature claims the best link rate to be greater than 80 Mbps, it would indicate that speeds of Mbps are not really achievable in real NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter use.

However, under testing the results were impressive. NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter DUMeter software we can see that when downloading 1GB and above test files from the internet, the full speed available from our internet connection was achieved and no dropouts or failures were encountered. Clearly 42 Mbps is well within the capabilities of this device, but it is still good to see that it performs as promised here. Now onto streaming NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter going by the results of the file downloads and the speeds received, no issues were expected here and none were found.
Onto HD Netflix where we see that the Homeplugs coped well here and after the initial peak of 30 Mbps caching with the film immediately playing it continued NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter about 3 Mbps and like iPlayer suffered no stuttering or freezes. Finally onto the file transfer testing.
This should be where we would expect to see speeds well in excess of the pure download tests above. Using DU Meter again we can see a NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter peak speed of Slightly disappointing as it is nowhere near the quoted Mbps although 80 Mbps is more than enough to quickly transfer files.
For example a 1GB file transferred to the host device in 2 minutes 21 NETGEAR XAVB5201 Adapter and from that same device in 2 minutes 9 seconds at roughly an average speed of 70 Mbps. Transferring 10 x 20MB files to the host device took just 20 seconds and from that device took 26 seconds with a slightly better speed in the range of Mbps.
