    Is TL-PA8030P a Switch

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]


    I am trying to connect 4 devices. I have a TL-PA8030P kit with 3 ports, I also have a TL-8010 kit with a single port. I would like to connect 3 devices in my media room and also one device in my study. I can get both sets of kits up and running on their own. Also, I can get the 8030 working with one of the 8010's. So my questions are:

    Should the 8030 and 8010 kits work together?
    If I use just the 8030 and one 8010 will I be able to connect 4 devices? So does the 8030 act like a switch?

    This has got me stumped so really appreciate any help.

    Yes, they work together, and yes, the 8030 has an integrated gigabit ethernet switch.

    That's four LAN jacks to connect your four client devices. You'll still need a 3rd adapter, possibly a single 8010, to connect the powerline network to your router.
