The Deco can work with the TP-Link powerline adapters together, but not the mesh network. 

 

It is suggested to connect them like modem--main Deco -- PLC/slave Decos. 

 

May it help.

Hello, you can do that. The main powerline adapter connects to the switch, and the second one connects to the slave Deco.

quick question

 

here is my setup. 
 

modem-->>deco9plus--tplink app speedtest 320Mbps) >switch-->PLC(av500) -->Wall

 

nextroom(deco9plus)-->PLC(av500)-->wall - getting 190 Mbps speedtest.     When connecting laptop directly to PLC only getting about 60Mbps

 

bedroom(deco9plus)-->PLCav500-->wall. Getting about  200 Mbps Speeed test,   When connecting laptop directly to PLC only getting about 70Mbps

 

backroom(Cisco AP 3702i) own Ssid) -->PLC--Wall only getting 30Mbps ?? Even connecting laptop directly to PLC. Any idea why?  Shouldn't I get closer to 50-90Mbps?  Since the PLC are 100Mbps adapters?

 

any clue what's wrong ?  Or will my issue be fixed if using a gigabit PLC ??


do these Mesh AP know to use the faster link ? Which is mesh instead of the PLC link which gets less speed?

Thanks.
