Model: TL-PA7020P-KITx
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: ?

Hi,

I have connected the two adapters to the router and power outlets with the two supplied network cables.

When I do this, wifi devices connected to my router suffer a very dramatic slowdown in internet access.

My phone even suffered an authentication failure to the wifi.

Has anyone else came accross this and if so,what did you do to resolve.

 

By the way my model printed on the back of the two plugs is not an exact match to the one I had to choose to enable me to make this post.

On my powerplug it says it is a TL-PA7020P(UK)

 

Kind regards,

Also, for the avoidance of doubt, when I disconnect the powerplugs from the router the normal fast wifi internet access speeds is restored. Indicating that the powerplugs are the issue.

Hello, it is weird, theoretically, the powerline adapter won't affect the performance of the main router. 

 

With the adapters connected to the main router, what is the speed you can get from the main router's wifi? Is there any error message regarding to authentication failure ?

 

You can hard reset the powerline adapters and repair them first. And you can change another cable with better quality to connect the main unit to the router. 

 

How to reset it: With the powerline adapter plugged into the wall socket, press and hold its Pair button for more than 6 seconds until the Power LED goes off momentarily and comes back on.

 

Besides, what is the model number of the router?

Hi Anton L.Z.

Thanks for the response.

 

The model number of my device (printed on the device label) is TL-PA7020P(UK)

 

When the powerplug is connected to the router the wifi access speeds on other assets literally half to their normal access speeds. Dont have an accurate measurement, just observations. Whereas normally a particular website (in my quick test www.bbc.co.uk/news) usually opens in under 10 seconds. With the powerplug connected this can take over a minute to load.

I did have a quick google around and found customers of other powerplug adapters mentioning the same issue.

I think I'll return my kit to Amazon as this solution (powerplugs)doesnt appear to be what I am looking for.

 

Thanks for the time you have taken to respond to my post though. It is appreciated :-)

Hey Barney, it is good to share something with you guys. 

 

While it is a pity that the powerline adapter did not work as expected. 

 

PS: you can try to update the firmware of the powerline adapters if you haven't returned it back to Amazon. 

 

Good day.
