My issue is that I am able to obtain FULL Internet speed - I have Fiber 100 mbps coming from my router through the first Powerline - out the other powerline to my computer at the front end of my home. BUT, when I do file transfer (move / copy) I only get 1/2 of the speed. I have looked at many things on my network card Advanced settings - played with QOS on the computer - tried different computers on the front end. It is not a speed problem per se caused by the wiring, if there were my internet speed would not be full speed (bits are bits BUT packets are not just packets). Is there a BETTER QOS setting on the Powerline than "Internet" that works for file transfers - it is not Video / Gaming / Voice exactly - so what shoud I choose?
I have TL-PA9020P KIT - making 2 Powerline AV 2000 adapters and TL-PA8010 KIT - making 2 Powerline AV 1200 adapters. I have turned off all power management features. I have swapped the differnet nodes to the various locations makeing the 2000 the one on the Router and on the front room computer and put the my 1200 in place of those. I have multiple computers so no matter what to configuration i always have all four plugged in. The AV2 2000 have a V3 firmware version (the very latest) and the AV2 1200 have a V2 firmware vresion (the very latest). I am usng CAT 6 network cables so it is not older Cat 5e (not that it should matter) so I am Gigabit solid.
I have plugged the devices (Security Camera System / Laptop (with external drive) / Internet Router / Powerline device) using the NIC ports on the Router.
I then introduced a Gigabit hub connecting all devices through instead of the routher to rule out any possibility that the Router was doing QOS. In all cases Internet is full speed. In all cases file transfer speed is half speed.
