No idea why you would use this surely a pair of gigabit powerline adapters would be a better option

If you’ve had a loft conversion, some electricians/ building companies have a policy to put it on a separate smaller consumer unit rather than mess with any legacy / old stuff that exists.

They do this because it’s cleaner from a building control and a testing requirements perspective because they don’t need to mess with the existing.

In this scenario, your power line adapters won’t work from the loft to the rest of the house.

Actually I’ve read situations where it works just fine. The same source supply helps bridge the gap.

I’ve got that exact scenario where both consumer units are plugged into the same clamped supply and it hasn’t worked with Tenda, Devolo, Netgear or TP Link adapters.

All bought from Amazon and then returned, apart from the Tenda ones because they were really cheap

i thought that too. i used gigabit powerline adaptors for years and i usually upgraded every few years to whatever the fastest was. the speeds werent bad but then i noticed that wifi technology had improved greatly. i was considering my next upgrade to the AV2000 but saw in reviews they where only marginally better than my AV1300s which i got about 300Mbps from on average... so i researched some wifi cards and the reviews where much more positive so thought id give a new wifi card a shot. depending what mood its in i can now get 877- 1053Mbps from my wifi card! considerably faster than any powerline adapter. its an ASUS AC68. so similar to this one which i believe is the next model up. pricewise it was considerably cheaper than powerline adaptors, i think i paid £45 which was around half the price of a set of AV2000s.

they both have their advantages. if youve got a house with thick granite walls and wifi signals cant get through then gigabit adaptors are fantastic. if your house doesnt hinder wifi signals then a wifi adaptor is probably much faster and cheaper...
These wifi cards are amazing (I have the 2 antenna model) but 75 is asking a lot, if it was 50 or under I would say buy it.
I would probably go for an ax200 if I wasn't transferring huge files.
