Good day.

Thank you very much for your detailed information;

When you move the windows 7 PC with its power-line to the garage, the middle power-line light would still lit up and there is still internet access on this computer, right?

Have you tried to ping the IP address of other computers and servers to see what happened?

How to Use the Ping Command: https://www.tp-link.com/en/support/faq/425/ 

By the way, have you tried to swap the power-line adapters to see if the issue still existed?


Thank you very much.

Best Regards.
