Drastic speed reduction using Powerlink adapters.

Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: TL-PA4010(UK)_V1_160316

I have today moved into a new home and have fiber to home broadband at 360Mbps installed, when i directly connect to the router I get download speeds of 300+Mbps, however when I connect to my TP Link powerline adapters this drops down to a download speed of at best 2Mbps.

 

I used all this equipment in my previous home with only 70Mbps broadband and still obtained 60Mbps download speeds with my Powerline connectors.

 

I have tested the connections all throughout the house (which is a relatively new build house, and has just had a full electrical inspection of the powerlines) and even on a socket on the opposite side of the room from the router and base powerline adapter I still only get 1 - 2 Mbps download speeds.

 

Can anyone offer any advice on how to improve this, im struggling to accept that the power lines in the modern house are that poor to cause such a drastic drop in connection speed over such short distances.

 

For information the router that came with the Fiber to home package is as follows:

Product Vendor: Technicolor

Product Name: DWA0120

What is the led status of the TL-PA4010KIT? Especially the powerline led. 

 

Please download the tpPLC utility to verify the powerline link rate between them.

Try to change another outlets to plug them.

 

Besides, with computer connected to the TL-PA4010, please click here  to verify the wired negotiation speed. 

Note: Please click on local area connection or ethernet connection. 

 

Good day.

Hello and thanks for the reply, to answer your questions, the LED status of all the TP links in the network are all solid green.

 

The tpPLC utility  verifies the powerline Link rate between 3 tp links as 152Mbps and 318Mbps

 

 

I have moved them around to all the outlets with similar results, and finally the ethernet status is showing as 100Mbps yet when using speed checking websites/apps speeds are very poor, today I managed to get up to 10Mbps but that was it.
