Download: 16.59mbps Upload: 9.33mbps

Why am I getting a slower download speed on the TL-PA8030P? I had some problems before with the TL-PA8030P model
The third adapter (TL-PA8030P) is in my second bedroom.

thanks Jonathan

Hi

Here's proof of the plugs I have bought & tested.

After replacing the TL-PA8030P KIT AV1200 with a TL-PA7020P KIT AV1000 everything started working great!






The TL-PA8030P KIT AV1200 was connected to my second computer in bedroom2, my internet speeds where much slower.

Since replacing my plugs with the TP-LINK TL-PA7020P model, I am getting much faster connections on all of my computers!

Please note I have four TL-PA7020P KIT AV1000 2 Port plugs which work great.

So I will be seeking to return these plugs to TPLINK, its been too long to return them back to Amazon.

I used speedtest.net to test my plugs

I was getting random disconnections & a much lower download speed since purchasing the TL-PA8030P KIT AV1200 from Amazon.co.uk on the 17 October 2015.

There's a firmware update for the 8030P, with much improved payload throughput.

That said, there is a speed loss in mixing those two series, and here's why. The 7020 uses one single wirepath with a wide frequency band (2-86 MHz), whereas the 8030 uses 2-68 MHz with two-path "MIMO". So when a 7020 talks to an 8030, the common denominator is single-channel 2-68 MHz aka "AV2 600" standard.
