Just got the powerline today and I tried plugging it in (one to the router downstairs and the other to my laptop in my room upstairs) and pressing the button so they sync and they did sync, so that's cool.
I have a TP-Link router and a TP-Link Powerline model TP-PA211.
Now I don't know if it is working or not. Everything looks the same, I still get disconnections. Also do I connect via LAN or via wireless network? Does it still use the same wireless network connection? Tutorials always tell you how to plug it up but never tell you what happens on the computer screen.
So... I don't know... right now I think I just wasted $80 on this thing.
