Found these to be hit and miss. The WiFi bit works fine but the powerline side is unstable in my house between upstairs and downstairs which happen to be on the same ring main. They certainly don't work on any spared sockets. Mine were also quite a bit less from CCL.

So what are you using nowadays?
I think its my house they don't like. My house is double fronted with living room on one side and dining room on the other with hall down the middle and kitchen at the back of hall and dining room. My router is in the living room. I work from home with my office at the back of the house and farthest point away from the router above the kitchen. Currently I have an old billion 3100 in my dining room which connects by ethernet to my office at the back of the house upstairs but the billion is wireless to the router. I was hoping the tenda powerline would give me a better speed but it doesn't work in my office or the bedroom in front of my office which is above the dining room. The powerline light is red at first, goes green for a bit and then red again. It works fine in the bedroom directly above the living room where the router is but I have excellent WiFi in that room anyway.

To use the Tenda as a wireless access point in my office actually gives me a slower speed than when connected direct to my router.

I haven't tried to see if it's faster than the billion which can be a bit temperamental. I don't recommend anyone buying a billion product. Took me ages to configure it when most things are just plug and play and looking at the forums it would appear I wasn't on my own in struggling for it to connect to my network.

I did get a set of these for my daughter and they work just fine in her house. Her ISP provided router was too weak and her smart TV couldn't connect but with these it solved the problem.
Are these the ones that go into 1.5mbps standby mode?

If you are talking about the ethernet side of the unit, surely that will be the device they are connected with?

It's recommended that you set your ethernet drivers to not use energy efficiency modes as this can switch off / or under perform with powerline.
Are these like the BT ones where the WiFi has to disconnect from the router WiFi before connecting to the power line WiFi (with the same SSID) when you move around the house? Or are they seamless like TP-Link (functioning as one big hotspot?
I fannied about with devices like these for years. Never quite right. Covered my house in mesh wifi recently. There is no comparison and it's in a completely different league.

So you have made a "mesh" of it. I thought about how the WiFi was going to be in my house years ago and stuck my router in the dining room which is where my PC was. When the PC was eventually replaced with a laptop I moved my router to back of the TV which made sense when later buying a smart TV and it's always where my games console has been so I have the best speed for items I use the most. Master bedroom is directly above the living room so has always had a good WiFi even with the crappy ISP provided router. When I got fibre though the 75mbps at the router was reduced to just 1 Mbps in one of the bedrooms farthest from the router. Replacing the crappy router with a Netgear R7000 took that up to 56mbps. A massive increase. The room that did struggle though was my back bedroom which is now my office and was hoping these powerlines would improve the speed in there as even as good as the Netgear is, I think we have a bit of interference between my works laptop and the router.

For now my works laptop hard wired to my Billion access point gives me about 50mbps and currently that's been stable for a while. Still a massive drop from my 200 Mbps since upgrading which comes into the house.
