Pros

  • Less expensive than router, AV adapter separately.
  • Hybrid powerline support frees up an outlet.

Cons

  • Poor documentation on setting up HomePlug AV.
  • No 5ghz Wi-Fi or gigabit ethernet.

At A Glance

The Netgear WNXR2000 is basically a midrange Wi-Fi router bundled with a HomePlug AV brick and a special cable--not the most elegant way to integrate the two network technologies.
