I had no problem searching for "powerline duplex" to get that info through DuchDuckGo and Google. You should find more info by searching for Homeplug as the full name is the Homeplug Powerline Alliance whereas Powerline is a more generic term. There used to be products that weren't Homeplug compliant - not sure if that is still the case.


It is product dependent because full-duplex is supported by the chipset. From memory, Netgear has full-duplex devices and there are others. Do you have a specific product or are you just asking in general?

Thanks for this. Was just asking in general really.

May just install some brush plates on the wall and run Ethernet cables instead.

A friend's mentioned it's far better gaming on full duplex.

I doubt you would notice unless there is other traffic on it as well. Why will brush plates help over powerline? If you can run cables for a brush plate, you can run it for a proper ethernet socket.
