I was wondering the same thing. Looking at some YouTube videos the AV500/600 seem to max out around 70-80 Mbps and the AV2000 seems to go up to around 200Mbps. This is on the same circuit and will depend on your wiring. Decent improvement IMO.


Does anyone with experience of these know whether I'd see much of a difference over the AV600's? I have 3 which perform really well but copying files to my NAS still seems quite slow :/ is it worth upgrading?


They are different - access point usually a single unit, mesh network is essential multiple access points in one combined network 'mesh'. If you need a powerline because of weak wifi signal, a mesh should be better than an access point alone.


Mesh better than using routers as access points?


Consider a wireless mesh network instead of power line, unless you live in a medieval castle with thick stone walls. Their performance is better and there is less degradation over time compared to power line adaptors.

TP-Link AV-600 Powerline Wi-Fi Kit - TL-WPA4220 kit £5 Instore @ Sainsbury’s (Hamilton)
Posted 25th AprPosted 25th AprLocalLocal
Discounted from £45 down to £5 In Sainsbury’s. Lots still on shelf in store. Asked at counter and appears to be another national deal.

Full price in Romford.


I originally had all mine on different SSIDs, so then I would always know which one I was connected to. Then for some reason I decided to give them all the same SSID, now I have to force a disconnect when I move to a different part of the house, so I get the strongest wi-fi signal.


just come back from my local Sainsbury's. shame it is not on sell


thanks, yes i was in south ruislip this afternoon so had a gander - not stocked.


I wouldn't say useless, but if you have more than 1 the WiFi signals interfere with each other even on different channels (my devices kept disconnecting) In the end I set them up with different SSIDs which made them more stable, but ruined any concept of mock-mesh. Eventually replaced mine with an Asus mesh system which is so much better it's barely worth the comparison.

No not the same, the more expensive one boosts wi fi , the cheaper one does not.


Naive lazy question here but I have 100mb fibre broadband through virgin and have 4 of these around my house, one next to the TV, one in the office and one hooked up to a raspberry pi NAS. If I upgraded to the 1GB plugs, am I going to see much difference? Comments I read previously and the reason I cheaped out on the 600mb plugs suggested that there wasn't really that's much of a difference.


I brought this thinking this is the starter kit TP-Link TL-WPA7510KIT Dual Band Gigabit AC750 Powerline Adapter Starter Kit, Range Extender, Broadband/Wi-Fi Extender, Wi-Fi Booster, Speed Up to 1000 Mbps, No Configuration Required, UK Plug https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0723C86CX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_4JNRSCY4GJTN2F9YJK4W But is this the same thing but cheaper? TP-Link TL-PA717 KIT 1-Port Gigabit Powerline Starter Kit, Data Transfer Speed Up to 1000 Mbps, Ideal for HD/3D/4K Video Streaming and Online Gaming(for Wired Only), No Configuration Required https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07G37DJ8R/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_8HP0J954H13CST40209J


yes, its 'starter' as it includes two - one plugs in next to your internet router and the other near the device you want to connect up. You can expand your network by adding additional plugs but tricky to find as singles. I ended up buying another starter pack and splitting it with a family member who also needed 1 additional device.

Is back up to £29.99


Just collected mine and set up was quick . My actual speed at my PC upstairs so far isn't greatly increased from wi fi - with router having to be downstairs in the kitchen, but it seems to have sorted a problem hereby larger file downloads were stalling and dropping out over the wi fi and hopefully should be generally more reliable.


amazon.co.uk/dp/B077ZH6ZR8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_76CTERHC2ED97H0MVT7V ^ I have that one, pricey but well worth it if you're suffering from a weak connection. I paired it to an existing AV600 adapter, the one connected to the hub, and was getting around 80-90mbps. I then replaced the AV600 adapter with an AV1000 and the performance improved. The upload speed stayed the same but the download speed shot up to 130-150mbps (does fluctuate after each speed test). Below is a speed test and it's typically what I get. Although I get 0 packet loss normally so not sure why its 1.3%


That's a shame. Pot luck I guess whether you will get decent speeds or not. My house is 70's I believe but God knows on its history of electrics.


I have Virgin 200mbps with the 1gb plugs (not passthrough). The only stumbling block i have is the wiring in the flat is ancient, i can achieve full speed direct from the router, but from other rooms its reduced by about 30-40%.

These work brilliant in most cases. I have one room I just can't get them to work. But the unit at the bottom of my garden running through a separate consumer board never fail! Devolo make the best ones but I used to sell 30-40 sets of these a week without issue..


If the sockets are on the same circuit. Powerline can work for some people. I just don't like it because of the factors involved, it's inconsistency and speed loss


Can get this supposedly refurbished for £28.79 from here https://pacetech.com/tp-link-tl-wpa4220kit-av600-powerline-300m-wi-fi-extender-signal-booster-ho.html Bought one of these kits with two of the extenders late last year for my son and it has worked well. Mine was also a refurbished unit - the box had been opened but no sign of any use.


The only issue with Mesh which is making me reluctant to adopt is that I understand you can't daisy chain it from each other so they all have to be a good distance from the 'master' unit connected to the router? In my house the router is literally at one end of the house so trying to get a signal at the other end is tricky? Where as with powerlines you can literally put it anywhere at each corner of the house as long as there's a power socket?


No worries pal
