just bought D-link AV2 2000 power line kit

 

it does give me required speed on connecting LAN, but did not improve wifi signal.

 

Am i missing something or got a wrong product ?

Wrong product for what you intend it to do.

 

 

 

be a perfect product for using with something such as the spark smart mesh if the wireless backhaul was a little weak where you wanted it though.

There are Powerline kits that terminate with a WiFi AP. Pure Powerline though is aptly named because it uses your power cabling as a data line. So it looks like you purchased the Belmont version not the Kingswood which includes WiFi.

You can though, plug a WiFi AP into the Powerline box where it terminates. Use the Ethernet port to pass data & the 230v socket to power up. That system works well -considering its limitations, certainly better than one of those dreadful WiFi extenders.





Megabyte - so geek it megahertz
