Ethernet home plugs TP-Link 500Mbps AC passthrough

Postby embleton » Thu Dec 11, 2014 8:34 pm

I purchased a pair of TP-Link 500Mbps AC passthrough home plugs and am delighted with the performance. The speed through our electrical wiring that is relatively new is 320Mbps on the same electrical ring, well above our internet throughput speed of 75Mbps downstream. We are in a semi-detached property and our neighbour doesn't use these devices in their home. I do recommend that those purchasing home plugs obtain the AC passthrough variety when the mains socket needs to be utilised for other purposes, as using extension multi sockets isn't suitable for correct operation. My conclusion is that home plugs are easy to setup and an effective method of extending an Ethernet network when ethernet cabling isn't practical, they operate with good overall performance well exceeding the requirements of higher speed superfast hybrid fibre broadband connections, and is far more reliable than wireless because of its latency and higher speeds.

These Ethernet homeplugs are great with every piece of computer equipment with the exception of anything that requires reliable latency without sudden peaks. An example of computer equipment that these homeplugs should not be used with is game consoles, such as the PS4 or Xbox One, as I have found that the latency jumps high occasionally and causes online games with my Xbox one to disconnect about every hour through mains interference.
