Hi

I've been having problems with this POS kit since the day I bought it.

I've set it up, paired both stations, established connection, and then the real problems began.
Firstly, the WiFi part of kit randomly drops the powerline connection (the other station is either invisible, or shown as "offline" if manually added, both the sender and receiver are connected to router and PC respectively with ethernet cable), but the internet connection is still on, albeit heavily restricted and dropping packets (between 0.5 and 1Mbit, the usual is 10Mbit).
Secondly, it seems like I can't turn on or off WiFi remotely, only directly by pushing a button on the WiFi adapter. Am I blind, or is it the firmware that is lacking?
Lastly, rarely the stations desync and have to be paired again, seemingly for no reason.

Should I return the kit? From reading this section of forum alone it became apparent to me it's a flawed product, a disgrace to the brand.

Maybe you should ask the supporter of TL-WPA4220 for help.

I did that, but the response wasn't helpful. I hoped for some sort of diagnostics tool that would check the strength (or stability) of the connection through powerline between two stations, but I heard TP-Link bought the technology, not invented it, so I doubt they have all the tools they should.

It seems that we can see the link rate on the utility.

Where exactly?
Or am I using wrong utility (literally only one on site).
