Our take on the Channel Master CM 6100 by Crutchfield's Tara W.
Many of today's TVs, Blu-ray players, and game consoles let you access content available from the Internet, but some of them don't come with built-in Wi-Fi® adapters, so you need to connect an Ethernet cable, which may not be convenient. Channel Master's CM6100 is a great solution — it uses your home's existing electrical wiring to pass Ethernet signals to different rooms.
This kit comes with two adapters. Plug one adapter into a wall outlet near your home modem or router and connect it with one of the supplied cables. Plug the other into a wall outlet near your TV, Blu-ray player, gaming system, or computer, and connect it with the other supplied cable. The two adapters immediately identify and connect with each other, and your wired home network is automatically extended to another room of your home.
It works great! Tried other products in the passed with no results. Finally I can get Netflix.

Thanks for submitting your review
Overview: The Channel Master CM-6100 Internet-to-TV Powerline Ethernet Adapter Kit is an easy-to-install solution providing an internet connection to any of the power outlets in the home. Many new TV's, SAT/Cable boxes, Blu-ray players, and game consoles are Internet compatible and need to be connected to the Internet. After getting these products home you may find it difficult to connect them to the Internet, because you may not have an Ethernet jack by your Internet-ready television or other component. Most homes are prewired with power outlets in every room, so Channel Master's Internet-to-TV Powerline Ethernet Adapter Kit is the perfect solution.
Installation: The Internet-to-TV Powerline Adapters have been designed to allow the home network or internet signal to ride along the same powerline as your cable television or terrestrial antenna signals with no interference. This is the most reliable solution without installing new wires and best of all its affordable & easy to install. Simply connect one Powerline Adapter to your modem and powerline network, then connect the second Powerline Adapter to your power outlet in another room and to your Internet-ready TV or component - where Internet connection is desired.
Note: The AC outlets in your home can be up to 330' (100m) apart.

Ethernet Port: Each Internet-to-TV Powerline Ethernet Adapter is equipped with an Ethernet (RJ-45) port and includes two 47" Ethernet cables to connect to your home network's modem/router and your Internet-ready TV, SAT/Cable box, Blu-ray player, or game console.
