Wi-Fi may be the most popular networking technology, but sometimes even the fastest wireless connection just doesn't hack it. Perhaps the signal can't get to the farthest reaches of your home or office, or maybe there are so many wireless networks competing for limited bandwidth that the Netflix movie you're streaming keeps freezing or stuttering.
As you've probably guessed, ZyXEL's kit was also the most expensive in the bunch at $140. If you can't spend that much, or if you can just get by with less bandwidth, TP-Link's $80 TL-PA6010KIT matched or outperformed all the non-MIMO AV2 products.
