    TL-WPA8630P KIT - phase coupler yes or no?

    Model :

    [h=1]Hello and good evening,

    I am using the TL-WPA8630P KIT AV1200 with 2x2 MIMO standard. In fact, in my house from the VDSL router in the basement to my 2nd floor office, which may be 10-20meters of wiring in between, I get connections of between 50 and 100 Mpbs.[/h]
    I know that because of MIMO technology in these 1200 PLC adapters, the question on which phase of my house wiring each adapter is plugged in is not so important anymore because the kits also uses the third set of wires. So, in general you can find the information on the internet "...that you do not need a phase coupler in your fuse box..." for the MIMO PLC adapters to work properly.

    While that may be true, I cannot find an answer to the question if a phase coupler would still ad some more speed to my PLC connections, or would it be totally useless in my setup? I.E. could it be possible that phase coupler would bring me to a better speed of 400 MBps or even 1200 Mbps? Or would it be a totally useless investment to make, and 90 Mbps is what you get over this distance?

    Best regards,

    What's the link speed shows on the tpplc utility? Did you test the speed when the adapters in the same room?
