      Homeplugs - PC > PC Fine - Internet Slow

      Hello all, just wondering if anyone could shed any let or has been in a similar situation.

      I have two TL-PA411KIT homeplugs, one plugged directly into the wall socket connected to the router, second in the PC.

      The tool shows its connected at over 300mbits yet download speed when testing at various sources does not exceed 27-28mbits.

      Plugged directly into the Sky hub i can reach close to 40mbits.

      Also worth noting that laptop to PC connected via homeplugs i can transfer files around 80-90mbits.

      Thanks in advance.

      Darren.

      Hi Goldfrog, I have exactly the same setup as you and I am able to get 35+ meg via the homeplugs. The speed does vary though even when nothing else is using the network.

      If you have a couple of PC's try this tool.

      Downloads - xjperf - Graphical frontend for IPERF written in Java - Google Project Hosting

      Select Server mode on one of the computers

      On the other computer select client and enter the IP address of the computer thats running the server.

      Set the transfer time to something a bit more useful than the default and hit start.

      It will test the throughput between the 2 pc's

      I find homeplugs to be highly variable depending on what else is going on at the time.

      Also when you test them with a PC/PC transfer do you move them at all?
