Summary: This thing worked ok, the internet speeds were a little slow but may be because of my home wiring. However, they function erratically. Sometimes they would both sleep, most of the time only one would sleep (power saving mode) at any given time. When my computer would start up they would wake up about 30% of the time so I would have to reset them to get internet.
Summary: This MIGHT be a good item if it worked. My unit tells me my speeds are less than or equal to 48 mbps at all times, not to mention the fact that every twenty minutes it trips my circuit breaker. These units should come with a detailed explanation of circuit breaker requirements, as this is most definitely NOT plug and play for many people. This unit is absolute garbage. I recommend you just run LAN cable all over your house, at least that won't trip your breaker box.
Cons: Link speed is consistently below 48 mbps constantly trips my circuit breaker
Summary: I keep reading reviews that it worked immediately for others and wonder why I'm not seeing the same. I'm open to any suggestions and aid.
Pros: Claimed speed of 382 Mps
Cons: Bought this kit to use in a remote location. Followed all the setup instructions to the "T." Watched the main page indicate I was receiving speeds of 382 Mps. However I was unable to connect to the internet by either computer connected to each of the units. This was after I tried connecting one to a router. Then changed the same unit to a different computer. Never was successful in connecting to the internet. SO, I brought it back to the "big city" and tried it all ov...
Summary: I bought this kit for use in a remote farm. I followed the setup instructions to a "T." It saw both devices when connected to a router and to a 2nd laptop. However, neither allowed connection to the internet despite using the cables provided with the kit and Cat5e from the router to a computer. I then tried a direct line from the original unit (Device 1) to the 1st computer. Again, no ability to connect, but I saw an indication that it offered 382Mbps capability.
Summary: First of all my model is the top TL-PA511 AV500 with gigabit ,but just a waste.I'm IT specialist and familier to switches ,hubs and networks.And my home to use that item is a small place .Nearly I tried all the plugs at my home to find the green light which means reception is good.And my cable internet speed is 40mps when I checked for speed I'm getting maximum 15mps thats mean freezing 3d content streaming.
Summary: Does not perform as intended within 25ft to 75ft. House was built in 2009. Tried and tested mutliple plugs and peak performance was about 25megabits. When I attempted to get support for the device from TP Link. Some non native English speaking support agent said they don't support Windows 8 with this product and would not assist me further. Waste of money and time.
Summary: The adapter would routinely disconnect and not fix itself until unplugged and plugged back in. Upgrading the firmware bricked the device and tp-link support refuses to replace it. Never buying from this company again.
Summary: Great idea. Worked out of the box all over my house. A couple weeks in it started dropping the connection. A month in it would not hold. All green lights and now no connection at all. 1.5 month life span is not satisfactory for me.
Summary: If you cross power line phases with this device, the performance is astoundingly low (15Mbps). Wireless is MUCH better than this thing in that case. This essentially means that you are limited to finding outlets that are on the same phase or you may as well toss this thing in the trash and use wireless. Also, the FAQ for this device states that devices such as washing machines and air conditioners can cause LOS and that such devices should "be avoided". What?
