From what I have read this seems to work better in newer houses

Summary: Have not been able to get these to work. I found via google it can vary by your houses wiring. I live in a house built in 1968 with aluminum wiring. I am switching over to copper pigtails soon, but I don't know if that will make any difference.
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.
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.
Cons: Link speed is consistently below 48 mbps constantly trips my circuit breaker
Summary: product isn't bad but customer support is the worst ever ... they don't pick up ..... and if you do get through you wont be able to understand anyone because they speak the worst English ever ....
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 t...
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.
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...
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.
