    PL9020 Ping Spikes under low load

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]


    I have huge problems with the PL9020 Kit. When there is little load over the Powerline, the Ping starts to spike up to 50 - 500 ms over the Powerline. (Between endpoint and router)

    As soon as there is some load (a few KBit is enough) this problem stops immediately.

    However this is really annoying while playing online games!

    Is this a power saving feature or something? How can I fix that?

    See the picture below, left side is only one endpoint while pinging the router over powerline and the right side is the same, except I turned my other computer on (which connects to the internet through powerline aswell) and opened some websites.

    Finally we have a beta firmware that seems to improve things - see other posts.

    the reason for this behaviour is an additional power saving feature, which reduces performance under low load.

    TP-Link provided me a custom TP Link utility which allows to disable both power save features and now everything is running smooth.


    If someone needs this, tool please send me a PM
