Model: Adapter  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 3.2.4_902104_190506_901

Hello,

I recently set up a couple of powerline adapters in order to try to improve my home network speeds. I have a 600mbps down internet connection, and when I test with my laptop connected with ethernet directly to the router I get about that speed (600mpbs) reported from a speed test. However, when I connect to my powerline adapter, I only see about 70mpbs. According to the PLC utility, the speed between the powerline adapters (one connected directly to the router) is about 325mbps each way. Surely this should mean I should see about 325mpbs on an internet speed test? Can someone explain the discrepancy to me, or offer any advice on how I could improve the connect speed? The adapters are hardware version v4, and I don't see any firmware updates for that version.

Thanks!

Here is an article regarding the AV speeds and what you actually get:

@Tony Thank you for the reply. I had read that article, and it makes sense to me - I don't expect to get a gigbit of throughput, but instead 30% ish of that. And that's what is reported in the PLC application - about 325mbps. However, my actual speed, as measured using an internet speed test, is more like 70mpbs. I understand the discrepancy between 1000mpbs advertised speed and the 325mpbs actual speed. I don't understand the discrepancy between the 325mpbs reported speed and the 70mpbs I'm actually getting in practice.

Every outlet can provide different speeds. What you could try is to test every available outlet where you planned to place the powerline as I have seen speed increases from that.
