    People stop buying these, they are horrible.
    Buy good wireless gear youll get so much better speeds.

    If you MUST buy it, ensure the plugs you use on your wall are on the same circuit else they flat out wont work.

    •  

      Yeah I was considering these for the unit I moved into but then realised I can probably spend the money on a decent Network card/adapter for my PC and it will work better

        if wifi is weak or snr is low, better nic won't help much. best solution is wifi mesh, some of mesh products have become very cheap, close to wifi extender and in par with plc.

      I love this model. We use them for our Xboxs, Smart Tv's and Pcs. We get near full 100/40 NBN speeds when downloading from the web and even faster when transferring data between consoles or pcs. And it means way less WiFi congestion.

      Great price, cheers OP.

      These have their place. I have one end of the house saturated in other wireless APs so I link my switches with one of these and it gives me internet speed connectivity where wifi cannot. The only other decent alternative is hardwiring the house but it’s not worth it for my circumstances.

      Would 'same circuit' mean the wall outlets need to be on the same RCD switch? I'm interested in getting these for my garage, but pretty sure the trip switch is different to the one my modem & nbn backup battery are plugged into.

      •  

        They will have to be on the same phase if you have three phase power otherwise I imagine they won’t work as the active wire is not physically connected between the two outlets. I imagine a different RCD should word but with lower performance and I couldn’t comment as to the specifics.

      Well I bought a pair and they have been GREAT.

      I max out my 50/20 connection in a room that WiFi can't reach.

    •  

      So weird that I get 2ms ping to my router using AV1000 plugs. They must be absolute shit /s

  •  

    This one is cheaper and can do the job:

    passthrough is not good to use, it can make the device more unstable physically and elextrically.

    I disagree.

    These can complement your network, especially if your renting and you cannot run ethernet cable.

    Even with a mesh network, these can be used with great success which is what i'm doing, which takes a load off the wireless backhaul. Unless you have one of those fancy orbis with a dedicated ac channel link.

    Cheap mesh systems share the wireless bandwidth between nodes which means the more nodes you have the more degredation of speed/network. This solves the issue, especially when dealing with multi-level houses where it's just not feasible to run cables.

    These have come a long way since the old 200Mbs ones, which funny enough i still use which maxes out my internet connection at 80Mbs/100Mbs which i'm fine with because it acts as it's own QOS not allowing that AP to saturate my WAN connection.

    I just purchased this exact model last week and installed it now… Here's some results for my speed test.

    15m ethernet direct cable connection 46.88 Mbps down / 5.86 MB/s up
    PA9020P tp-link powerline connection 38.07 Mbps down / 4.76 MB/s up

    The house is late 90's, and the powerlines are on different circuits to the fuse box

    So far so good :)

    I've had these for just under 2 years, and they are fantastic! Was reaching full speed when I had a 100Mb NBN connection. No difference in internet speeds between a wifi enabled laptop and the desktop using these.

  •  

    I'm using these right now and getting 86 down and 36 up with a 15 ping on NBN. I did get up to 140 down with Telstra cable before NBN.
    Only thing to watch out for is clearance for the network cable with the floor, I use right-angled plugs. I have even got one running through a power board.

    I am using this: https://www.dlink.com.au/home-solutions/DHP-309AV-powerline-...

    Not getting the most out of my bandwidth and since I moved rooms I don't have a data port anymore. So I have been resorting to powerline connection.

    Currently getting:
    40.73mbps Down
    36.31mbps UP

    Will this one help me get the most out of my 100/50 NBN plan?

      The equipment posted is 4x faster than the one you are currently using.

      AV500 means the device is capable of achieving 500Mbps in lab conditions
      AV2000 means the device is capable of achieving 2000Mbps in lab conditions

      Obviously, lab conditions are utterly unrealistic for most of home user so your actual speeds may be way below that.

      I use one pair of the TPLink from this posts and I can achieve around 500Mbps between endpoints and that suffice for my home works and streaming needs.

      I moved a couple of years ago from DLinks AV500 to these AV2000 and the difference was enormous.

      So in my own opinion, I think it's worth the upgrade.

      There are conditions that may affect the speed such as wiring quality and wiring distance between endpoint, but given the speeds you are achieving with the AV500 I think you would be fine.

    •  

      Also, TPLink AV2000 is AV version 2 whereas yours is AV version 1 (Couldn't find any reference to AV2)

      So there is an upgrade in technology as well.

      AV2 adds the ability to communicate over the ground wiring in addition to the hot and neutral wires. If the two powerline adapters share a ground (usually there is just one ground for an entire house/apartment) then you should see a reliability improvement. The exact amount can't be quantified in advance, powerline is nearly impossible to predict.

      See the article: https://garywoodfine.com/difference-1-0-av-av2-homeplugs/

        Thanks for the reply and clarity. So do you think if I upgrade to this it will help me go close to my NBN speed?

        I was fiddling around my power points last night and funnily enough my old room power point gave me a huge improvement in bandwidth: 78.14mbps Down and 37.66mbps UP. I dont want to set it up there as we have a student moving in there if this particular item will help improve it.

        Considering we have multiple people and plenty of devices in the house and I play games, stream and download big files I definitely want access to the bigger bandwidth when it is "off peak" usage in the house.

    Turn any power outlet into a high speed network

    Even my house built in 70s?
