I give it 3 stars because this security code change is very important for me, but the lack or wrong of instruction about setting up new security code make me almost give up. I'm not a newbie around, I build my own computers and labtop, set up couple houses networks with NAS. But, D_Link, you really did a bad job on this important fuction.
The speeds you will obtain will be different from outlet to outlet depending on your house wiring including: the DISTANCE between the two devices and the electrical panel, the number of WIRING SPLICES in the wiring between the two devices and the electrical panel. If possible try not to use the device in an outlet controlled by a wall switch.
To get a baseline speed, plug the two devices into the same outlet and run a speed test. This will be your maximum obtainable speed. Then move the second device to other outlets around the house and re-run the speed test. Lower speeds obtained in some outlets are not the fault of the device but rather due to differences in the electrical wiring between the two devices.
Even within the same room different outlets may give greatly different speeds because of electrical wiring differences. As an example, I plugged the second device into five different outlets in the same room and got speeds ranging from 20mbps to 70 mbps. What a difference!
As a practical matter it's very hard to predict if powerline adapters will help in your specific situation, so test them out and return them if they don't help you. Running an Ethernet cable will almost always give better and more predictable results if it is possible in your situation. Even running an Ethernet cable as far as possible to a remote Wi-Fi router may be a better solution for you.
So in the right situation powerline adapters work great but the results are hard to predict ahead of time.
Most the performance is wiring related, I had it 1 wall receptacle over, and was getting 120/120. My house was built in 2004.
Super simple setup, It just "works"
Top reviews from other countries
Also worth noting that I live in an apartment complex, where a lot of people complained that powerline adapters didn't work properly. They work absolutely fine. Love them.
- Open box
- Plug in adapters
- Internet ready to go... insanely simple, no syncing or nothing. They just worked.
- Much better ping during games and no connection drops.
You also need to have patience and be methodical when you test these devices. You will want to check multiple combinations of outlets to find a set of outlets that are on the same electrical circuit, or are close to one another. For example, my results:
- First combination of plugs: 20mbits/second down, 12mbits/second up. Super slow, but more consistent than my Wi-Fi in this location. I could "feel" the difference.
- Second combination of plugs: 35mbits/second down, 15mbits/second up.
- Third combination of plugs: 175mbits/second down, 175mbits/second up. DING DING DING.
So it takes a bit of trial and error and you need to understand the limit of what you're going to get. I was using this to get more consistent and faster speeds than Wi-Fi could provide on a computer in the basement. 175mbits/second is a MAJOR improvement and I am very happy.
If your house is relatively new, if your expectations are in check and you have a bit of patience for trial and error... I would recommend this product. If not, you will probably be disappointed.
When I play in the computer room near the router, I use ethernet which gives me the full speed... but I live in a row townhouse and the router being on floor 1 sucks because I don't have an ethernet that goes to floor 3 for when I play upstairs. Wifi is good, but concrete in my house messes up connection, and despite me having a beast of a wifi router, and there are drops when I need it most.
That's where this device comes in. I don't need to spend on unnecessary wiring and it gives me the constant connection I need. I can hook it up in any room and it works fine. I'll still use the wifi for downloading things upstairs because it's way faster.
Some tips for faster internet with this device:
- Your wiring in your house will determine how strong a signal (download/upload) you get.
- Plug it straight into the socket and not via a surge protector or it wont work
- If you are trying to move the internet through floors, if your first powerline network adapter socket is on the east wall, try to plug the second powerline network adapter into a socket also on the east wall
- power usage can greatly affect the signal you get. When I lived at my parents, my router was on the east wall on the 3rd floor and my powerline network was plugged there, and it came through to my room which was on the first floor also plugged in on the east wall. If my mom vacuumed on the 2nd floor and it was plugged into the east wall, it would screw up my signal. So if you're trying to get as much uninterrupted signal as possible,make sure there's no high usage electricity devices between the router and the path of where the other powerline network adapter comes out.
