just got a pair of these and thank fully they have worked. but just wanna know how i can get the true speedof what these are connecting at. streaming seems fine, but was just curious as to how i can find out the network speed. they are the 200mbps ones, but know i not going to get that.

is there a test or benchmark i can do to get the speed?

advice appreciated....

I would transfer a file over to another destination and look at the speed, then times it by 8. Again, this won't give a true true speed, but a good indication. Obviously make sure you are transfering to something which is 10/100 capable, i.e not to a laptop wirelessly!!

Wouldn't have thought you would get anywhere near 200 though

how can i look at the speed? is there something in windows?

Yeah, when the dialog comes up saying "Moving - 5 minutes remaining" or whatever, click on more details then it will have the speed in MB/s

Times it by 8 to get mbits/s, so mine would be 14 mbps in that example
Just make sure it's a big enough file that you can read it, i.e not so small that it does it and the dialog box doesn't come up!!

Again, not perfect, but will give you an indication

I think thats only in win7 though but just time it if not - there are plenty of calculators on the internet that will tell you the mbps if you can tell them how long it took you to transfer say a 100mb file

cheers for the info. will give it a blast.

what would be a decent speed? 16mbps? would this be enough to stream an .avi/divx?
#8
Think so, 30-40 is enough for something like a 8gb 1080p mkv. Would have thought you would be able to stream divx as i could when i had 85mbps, maybe HD mkvs if you're lucky
#9
I get about 65mbps out of my 200's and I can stream 720p 8gb mkv files
#10
What speed did you get in the end?
#11
just for an update. finally managed to get sorted. set a 1gb file transferring over these and was getting a speed of around 1.29mbps so x8 get around 10.5mbps.

i seem to be able to stream content from BBC and watch footy ok over it. I havent tried streaming a film internally yet, but will give it a go.

may test what speeds id get when the adapters are on the same wiring circuit. this test was done while other powerline adaptor is in my shed over another consumer unit.

im happy with it, but you always want that little extra....!
