I bought TP-Link PA411KIT AV500 500 Mbps Powerline Adapter - Twin Pack from Amazon about 1-2 years ago, works perfect. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0084Y9N3O

Maybe you have bad wiring in your house?

i am using 5 av500 tplink units in my house.

update the firmware on you tp-links. as someone else has said could also be your wiring in your house

no firmware update for my ones available. on forums it says it's Av600 issue which never bothered fixing. connection drop-out is really weird it cause dns error which voip services still work but u can not browse web pages and etc.

Have you tried hard setting DNS to 8.8.8.8 just to see if that helps, could be your router is acting as DNS server & not responding quickly enough or your ISP DNS is borked & timing out when the extra time/route is used via the powerline but the rest of the time you just get away with it?

Not very likely but worth a try I've had some cheap devolo ones & they've been flawless.

I had tp links, cant remember the model number but had constant drops out and needing to reset them.

I've got NETGEAR PLP1200-100UKS 1200 Mbps Powerline Ethernet Adapters https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00WUACDBM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Got them for £40 during black friday last year, not had a single issue with them since, never touched them since setting up. Working perfectly!

I have the "BT Broadband Extender Flex 600 Kit" which I got from BT themselves when I got BT Youview for £20 and never had any issues so far, they are also pass through plugs. Four months into use so far and never one drop.

No issues with my tp link, in fact , brilliant.

I tried 3 manufacturers (TP-Link, Zyxel and Netgear) and found all of them to be crap. Granted this could have been down to the properties electrics, but all of them had issues with dropping link entirely or speed being all over the place. If you are able to run a network cable instead, do it - you won't look back.

I've used various brands and all have been excellent. It's the age and quality of your electrics that is important. Take them to a friend's house that has had a recent rewire (last decade should do), I'm sure they'll work fine, if not - send them back as faulty..

Don't look at brands, look at chipsets. Powerline adapters share common chipsets so look for a decent review on that chipset.

All the high ranking ones use qualcomms qca7500 at the moment. hope that helps
