    Powerline Adapter Issues TL PA9020P

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Have had these adapters since 3 or 4 months.

    Was having issues with a Devolo branded pair, so read that these were recommended.

    Im using Fibre Broadband, should be getting 40mbps down. Shows that when power line connected to Desktop Via ethernet, but in the Utility it shows between 450 and 550 mbps speed on the adaptors.

    Clearly something is up, from time to time websites dont load correctly, I was asked to try in a different socket, or with someones laptop but not convenient, cant really do that, plus the nearest socket is over the other side and wire wont reach.

    Have tried the Lower PLC to VDSL and turning power saving off, makes no difference.

    Am using gigabit ethernet cables and feed some connections through a gigabit ethernet hub

    Wifi is pants and want the best possible connection all around

    The link rate between powerline unit are too slow.
    Are there any other powerline devices in this network?
    Try to plug them in a same power socket to test the link rate to make sure it's normal.
    Besides, make sure they are far away from high power appliances.

    My desktop is upstairs. So I dont think that would be possible, how would that work?

    is there any laptop to help you? Accroding to your words first, you also tried Devolo branded pair with same issue.
    Firstly, we need to figure out whether your home electricity environment is not suitable to use powerline device.
    If it's the electricity environment issue, it's not recommended to use powerline devices.

    I dont have a laptop, any other suggestions? Because WIFI alone would never cut it in my house

    Help!!!

    Ok, so basically I tried with the Devolo 1200 Powerlines, I was getting 400mbps. So probably an issue with my wiring. I was told the TP-Link Utility only shows what your wiring is capible of, not what the adaptors are pushing out, that makes no sense to me.

    So the only thing I could try is with a laptop directly from the adaptor, and I dont have a laptop. The Devolo adaptor is WIFI, I dont think that makes any difference.

    I use a Sky Hub, and Sky Q, they claim to have powerline technology built in, but they are not yet supporting it, has been the cause since nearly 2 years now since release, I have tried it and it slows down the wifi.

    I dont know what to do, some of these answers helped whilst some didnt. Possibly could be interference from mobile chargers etc, but really I cant win. where else would we plug them?

    Probably would have been a better solution to have some switches or access points installed, I have spent nearly 300 on these adaptors and cant take them back, nobody wants to buy them either.

    So would be helpful if someone with a bit more knowledge could help me out, I dont think the adaptors are at fault considering the speed pushed out from the Devolo, or my wiring situation.

    Could it be faulty cables? Can I win? As I have leads coming out of all ends easy to pull on some of them. Anybody can help me. Thanks

    The adapters may very well be at fault ... given the ever-revolving firmware issues and lack of updates and fixes here at TP-Link, I do not trust them for any kind of sustained traffic anymore, let alone for realtime IPTV streaming. Just go with the devolos.

    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 to put a devolo 1200 DINrail into the main fusebox, and feed it LAN from the router. This is particularly true if you're trying to feed an entire house, not just a single flat.

    What do you mean by fuse box? We have a wall socket for one phone line. Also are you saying I should ditch the TP’s and go back to the Devolo’s? Bear in mind I can’t take the TP’s back because the shop no longer exists.Currently the TP’s are first connected downstairs with a Ethernet cable going into one of the 2 yellow sockets, the second upstairs one cable into my desktop and the other a Ethernet hub. Sounds about right doesn’t it? I am by far not smart with certain technologies it’s more about time. Also could the 5ghz of my router be affecting the adapters? Is there anything else like settings on my router dchp, unpnp etc? Just trying to find a possible conflict or issue here

    Everything is gigabit Ethernet enabled with the right cables etc, some of the cables feel a little loose at the ends, it’s tough because of the distance they have to travel to look after the unless there is some ultra sturdy cable available

    Better to email tp-link technical support directly for further help. They ususally reply email very soon.

    They havnt been much use really. They did offer to replace the adaptors upon reciept, but I have mis placed the reciept, so my fault I guess. Anyway I done a reset using the plugs in the kitchen then put them back into router and desktop, had no issues since then,

    Fingers crossed this is the end of my woes. im still getting between 400-500 mbps on the software, ill assume that is ok, its hard to tell, some tell me its slow whilst others say its ok

    That's within a normal range of link speeds between adaptors. Actual transfer rates are significantly lower than the link speed.
