I have a set of TL-PA411 but they are currently maxing out at about 27Mbps when my internet connection is 40Mbps. Is there anything I can do to improve my speeds e.g. buy better adaptors?

 

 

 

The adaptors I have say 500Mbps on them even though they only have a 100Mbps port.

Depends on your house wiring. I had some about 5 years ago that were good quality, but only did a few Mbps over our old wiring.

It's a reasonably new house (2007 I think) so I would assume the wiring is decent. However, I think the adaptors are plugged into different circuits, which apparently affects your speed.

If I could I would but it's just not feasible.

Dont plug anything else in on the same circuits, thats what totally damaged the thruput for me, belkin wemo was one of the worst offenders at drowngin the signal out, as was a PC.

 

Cheap powerbrick powering a DVR had almost no effect on it, and halogen and LED worklights also seemed to not do anything to them.

Can you reutilise the phone wiring?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I have Dlinks in  my place and I get about 45Mbits. They're attached to the second outlet  of a dual power socket.  All the other junk is on the 1st outlet.

I don't think so. I have VDSL so I can't just plug the router into the phone wiring like you could on fiber.

How about coax cables around the place? MoCA is very popular in the US for the reason that houses were typically well cabled for TV when built but nothing datawise at all.

I think there is some sort of TV cabling around the house but it's not close to the router. I might have to look into it though.

Normally the solution is running new ethernet cables....

I think 27MB/s is the max you will get. I had a set of those and had difficulty streaming hi-bandwidth content from a  server.

 

Changed to the 1Gb/s EOP's, and working much better, and no problems streaming.

 

Only a few dollars difference in price.

 

I have even kept one of the 500Mb/s EOP's on the circuit and didn't affect the thruput of the 1Gb/s streaming. Normally they say  not to mix the two technologies, but haven't had any slowdown. Probably helps that both the 500Mb/s and the 1Gb/s adapters are from the same manufacturer (TP-Link)

 

500Mbps = 50MBps on a very good connection, if the stars are aligned and you have made sufficient goat sacrifices.

 

 





My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government
