    PLC devices do not have network addresses, and they are not routers. They are equivalent to a network cable, no more no less.

    When a PLC has nothing connected to its LAN port,...

    When a PLC has nothing connected to its LAN port, it enters standby mode after a while. What exactly a "while" is depends on make and model.
  4. PLCs do not show up as regular network devices,...

    PLCs do not show up as regular network devices, for they do not occupy an IP address. They're fully transparent to that layer of networking. You need specific PLC software to see them.
  5. Three phase wiring is very common in continental...

    Three phase wiring is very common in continental europe, so no problem there. All power wiring being unshielded, the high frequency data transmissions will crosstalk into the other phases well enough...

    Yes of course, the LAN jacks on powerline devices are as universal as those directly on the router; in the outer building you'll need a WLAN accesspoint/repeater device and set it to access point...

    Using consumer PLCs, this looks like the mother of all bad ideas to me.

    Using slightly better PLCs that let you pick non-overlapping frequency ranges (very much as you would on WLAN), it might...

    Unless your network of access points actively force the client device to the closest or best one, the client devices will switch over only if and when they feel like it. Some rescan for a better AP...

    Make sure the four of them are actually all on the same powerline network, and also make sure your network uses your very own individual encryption passphrase. This is best done by plugging them all...

    Reset the older unit, then follow powerline procedure to join it into the network of the other two. You can use the pushbutton on the devices for that, or the tpPLC utility to join by device ID code.

    From the perspective of powerline compatibility, yes it will. Be sure to set it up properly before you join it into your existing network, such that it uses an exclusive IP address within the range...

    Power save mode makes it disconnect when the attached LAN device has been off for a certain amount of time. In that case, the powerline device appears disconnected as well, even though it's just...

    Wow, that's a positive surprise ... can we have any feedback from TP-Link whether this will appear for (EU) models as well? Will the V2 hardware get an update too?

    400 Mbit physical line bandwidth across floors...

    400 Mbit physical line bandwidth across floors sounds pretty normal to me. What kind of problem did you have with the devolos?

    Either way, the #1 leap in powerline performance and reliability is...
  15. Vogon: Communication between PLCs is always...

    Vogon: Communication between PLCs is always directly from source to target, not piped from the source through nearest-neighbor links until it arrives at the target. That is also why you see...

    My educated guess would be it's because Internet (download) traffic tends to have lots of reply packets going the other direction - very much unlike local throughput benchmarks that tend to load one...

    I've been through all this. First I swapped the 8030P V1 for 8030P V2, which made things better but not good - I still had one or two connection losses per day on the upstairs office PC. Also,...

    [Problem Solution] PLC Connection drops are nothing to do with...

    PLC Connection drops are nothing to do with anything the attached devices do.

    PLC units are supposed to go to standby whenever none of their local LAN ports have a connection. They should never go...

    At 400 Mbit/s bandwidth, you should expect to get about 133 Mbit/s, which translates to about 15 MBytes/s. As it always is with physics and math, please watch your units.
  20. See above - check the physical connection...

    See above - check the physical connection bandwidth (using tpPLC utility software) and do the math. Something is wrong only if either the connection bandwidth or the payload throughput are much lower...

    That's just as much as you can expect to get from AV500 kit. Here's the math: Similar to all other shared-media network transports (like WLAN), payload throughput will be about a third of the...

    TL-SG105E v2 cannot update to v3 firmware. We've had that conversation.

    Yeah right ... if your coax cabling had even the slightest bit of a shielding issue, then neither your TV nor your internet service would work properly. PLC (an entire house full of unshielded...

    Remove one of the cables from switch to PLC. You are creating a routing loop there.
  25. When combining PLCs of different line speeds,...

    When combining PLCs of different line speeds, they don't all revert to the speed of the slowest one. PLC is a peer-to-peer network, speeds are negotiated and maintained individually between peers,...
