@Chorlton Hello,

 

Please check if there are electrical devices which have a motor inside them around the powerline adapters. Such equipment can be air-conditioners, washing-machines, electric-fans etc..  Please move such equipment to another location if possible, or move powerline adapters away from such equipment. 

 

Btw, if you have  AC power adapters, such as those used for mobile phones, laptops or something else around the adapters. If the quality of AC power adapter is not good, it may cause noise on the power line circuit. Please move it to another place away from the powerline adapters.

@Solla-topee 

Thank you

Everything is now moved to the opposite side of the room, and it's all working perfectly, I have a feeling that it's a ground earth problem, Am I right in thinking that the signal passes along this part of the circuit? I will check this and replace the socket when I have time but for now it's all good!

@Chorlton Hello, 

 

Ground pin on PA411 is for  lightning strikes and electrical malfunctions, rather than transmit power line signal, so it should not effect the powerline devices. 

But if only 1 certain socket does not work with powerline device, it could be a socket issue or  interference around that socket.
