5 out of 5 eggsHooked right up...

Pros: ...almost! Bought this adapter as my router was acting up.
Wifey's PC is running on another brand of adapter. I plugged the TP-Link unit next to one of the other brand, pushed the 'pair' buttons on both and got the wanted results!
Then I plugged the TP-Link into my PC setup and no joy. The utility wanted a 'name'. My brain started to wander; computer name, user name, domain name, log in name, etc? Turned out to be the 'Powerline network name'. Reset all units to use "HomePlugAV" as the name and everything is working great! No problem streaming TV, videos etc. And I still use my old router as a switch (shut off the transmit function).
Newegg, for both price and delivery, was again superior.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Beautifully

Pros: Plugged it right into my existing powerline network very easily, truly plug and play. Price was great as is the usual NewEgg service. Powerline internet connections are much more reliable and don't dropout unlike many/most wireless usb adapters. I am getting basically the same speed as the other powerline adapters in my system and that is about 55Mbps (pay for the 60Mbps level from my ISP) which is truly fantastic, having so little loss in speed.

Cons: No egg drop because I don't personally have this problem but if you have really (I mean REALLY) bad old wiring and interference this may not work great for you.

Other Thoughts: My main powerline network I started at my house was with the kit (and adapters) that had 500Mbps capacity which is obviously serious OVERKILL (at least for the next decade or two I would imagine), so I bought this one with the 200Mbps limit because its cheaper yet performs in every way, exactly like the others in the network.

5 out of 5 eggsTP-Link AV200 Nano Powerline Adaptor

Pros: Bought a few of these to replace an existing Netgear Powerline setup (was original iteration of Homelink; wanted to upgrade to Homelink AV standard) and add another device to my home network. Unboxed, plugged in, and they connected immediately with no issue as expected. Far surpassed the speed of the old Netgear setup, and blows away comparable wireless connections. I just tested one of Homelink connections versus wireless N from the same position in my home - achieved 22.4Mbps download on the Powerline wired setup, versus 13.5Mbps download on the wireless N. These are absolutely for when you need more reliability or speed than a wireless connection, and can't run an ethernet cord to where you need it.

Cons: None really. I bought mine on sale for a pretty great price. Just unboxed, so cannot yet comment on long-term reliability.

Other Thoughts: At this point, I would certainly recommend and buy again if needed. Also, certainly worth the upgrade from earlier Homelink iterations.

1 out of 5 eggsworked ok

Pros: Easy when they work.

Cons: Constantly dropping connection now.

Other Thoughts: They were great when they would hold a connection, now they drop connection every 10 minutes and have to be re-synced.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Powerline.

We are sorry to see that you are having some issues with this device.

There is always the possibility of another electrical device on the circuit that is causing some sort of interference.

A result in Network failure could happen if any new device/s have been added that may conflict with the Power-line adapters.

Another suggestion may be to try different outlets if possible. If you have multiple outlets in a room, then a good test would be to test the other outlets to see if you run into the same problem.

We have a 24 hour technical support team that can assist you with any issues or concerns.

You can also feel free to contact me directly at

Best Regards!

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not keep connection

Pros: +Great speeds when device is connected
+Easy to set up

Cons: -Constantly loses connection to network. There is no pattern to when it will connect or disconnect, it will just not be able to connect to the network. Unplugging both, synching both, reinstalling drivers, none of these will fix the issue. If I didn't have a wireless card, I would connect to the internet for maybe 2 hours a week.

Other Thoughts: When it works, I get great speeds. When it doesn't, I'm forced to use wireless and go far slower (and at higher pings while gaming). It's a shame I'm having such trouble with it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Customer,

Thank you for checking out our Powerline.

We are sorry to see that you are having some issues with this device.

Some possible factors that could be causing the issue are:

The two Powerline devices are too far apart. The farther they are the more performance decrease you will see.

If there are a bunch of electrical devices connected to the circuit, then you can run into some electrical interference. A good test for this is to unplug some of your devices and see if the performance changes.

Another issue may be due to the circuit itself. The wires may be a bit old or have some electrical issues with them. Trying different outlets can help trouble-shoot this.

If you would like local support to help you then you can feel free to contact me directly at

Best Regards!

5 out of 5 eggsLove It!

Pros: Truly plug and play when added to my existing pair. The convenience factor is huge.

Cons: It wasn't very easy to find.

Other Thoughts: I won't hesitate to buy another if needed.

5 out of 5 eggsNifty little units!

Pros: Setup was extremely easy!
QIG was easy to understand (I read it after setup), not sure where the other reviewers had their issues
Good transfer speeds - units closer together on the same circuit the better
If you are like me and tend to run a long Ethernet cable for large file transfers across your house, fret no more!
Even using two rooms away from unit connected to my router the transfer speed is better than connecting via wireless-G

Cons: Comes with 2 CAT 5 Ethernet cables, thanks for including them (as I would hope with a starter kit or even any router or Ethernet device purchase) but it is old tech.

Other Thoughts: Very impressed with these little units! Transfer speeds are great, consistent and no need to run wires around my house from the router - just from the unit on the outlet to my device. I have an old Dell Inspiron that is about 5-6 years old that only supports 802.11(a/b/g) and an Ethernet port supporting 10/100 Mbps full duplex - transfering large files on the LAN via WiFi transfers at around 2.5 Mbps. I typically run a 50' CAT 5e cable to this laptop when I need to make large file transfers in shortest amount of time but having this cable running across the floor around the house is not something I'm fond of. Like I said very convenient! One of the downsides was that when I started separating my units farther apart the total bandwidth decreased, as I would naturally expect. I don't have this problem with my 50' cable as I don't have enough EMI where I typically run my cable and given that the cable is CAT 5e and only 50' attenuation is not an issue.

As for the transfer speeds there were pretty good and what I would expect (at close range to router) at 100Mbps full duplex. I was getting ~10Mbps directly upstairs from the location of my router - this is perfect as 90% of the time my laptop is stationed in this room. When I went upstairs from said location the speed dropped to ~4Mbps; still better than what I would get on wireless G, if you will.

5 out of 5 eggsOne Click

Pros: Worked with one button press. Already using TP Link powerline system, so that may have made it easier. Super tiny. Cool blue light.

Cons: Doesn't make sandwiches.

Other Thoughts: Can't beat it for twenty bucks.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too fast but *very* reliable and consistent

Pros: Never once dropped a connection, dipped in performance from the same plug-in point, or locked up my network.
I tested the TP-Link TL-PA2010 AV200 from three different power sockets in three different rooms at increasing distances. In the same room, essentially the same socket via an extension cord (not recommended, but it worked fine for me), I was getting file transfer speeds of 10.5 MB/s, with the included powerline utility program reporting 195 Mb/s (I've found these utilities to be optimistic, but assume they account for bi-directional flow, plus protocol overhead). This is more than enough for full Blu-ray streaming. One room away (10 feet), this dropped to 5MB/s, and three rooms away, or 30 feet, the speed went down to 3MB/s. Just about adequate for medium size high definition file streaming, say 4GB compressed HD movies, and still more than enough to max out my ISP's purported bandwidth of 18Mb/s. In fact showed I was getting 19 Mb/s, which is what I achieve on my base PC with a direct connection. At no time did I see any lockups on my network, as I have with a different manufacturer's higher rated powerline adapter, and speeds were very consistent at each distance.
The design is quite sleek, with three tasteful blue status LEDs, not big and blocky like some other adapters.
When plugged in, the connection to the network is made very fast -- about 5-10 seconds -- it's Plug and Play. The device runs cool to the touch also. The description mentions "Power-Saving Mode automatically reduces power consumption by up to 75%", which is a nice feature.

Cons: Not the fastest available, and if the distance is long or your home's electrical system is old and subject to interference as mine is, it will suffice only for internet streaming, playing medium size HD movies, or transferring just small-medium files over your network, unless you don't mind waiting. I was able to get a co-op game of Far Cry 3 running from three rooms away though, just as a test, and saw no lag or stutter.

Other Thoughts: I received the TP-LINK TL-PA2010 AV200 in order to review it.
I was not blown away by the performance, for which I reluctantly docked one egg, but was impressed by its consistency and reliability, plus the design.
Basically, what you see is what you get, and provided your electrical system is modern and not subject to interference, this adapter can deliver pretty close to the advertised specs, which is refreshing in this type of product. My home's wiring is quite old, and it still performed reasonably well.
The value is not bad at $20 each at time of writing - bear in mind you will need at least two if you want to use them in your network.
Conclusion: If all you need is an easily set up fixed network connection to another desktop in your house, you could save quite a bit by not buying an expensive wireless N or AC router plus the equivalent adapter, and just going with a pair of these.

5 out of 5 eggsYou don't need instructions!

Pros: These are some slick little boxes! Their intent is to be a virtual ethernet segment, to extend your network over the power lines to places that it couldn't reach, or couldn't reach easily. They succeed marvelously at this task!

First off, the "nano" moniker is well deserved! These boxes are only slightly thicker than your average box of dental floss! In comparison to my existing Zyxel ethernet over power devices, they're less than a quarter the size! (But minus the passthrough electrical outlet.) They absolutely do NOT overlap the adjoining plug, so you can plug in wall warts or other bulky things into the other outlet without fear!

Setting them up is easy easy EASY. Out of the box, they'll use the network "HomePlug AV"... not exactly the most secure, but not the worst either. Push the pair button on side 1 for a second, push the pair button on side 2 for one second, and they'll generate a new encryption key like that!

Really the only use for the software is to see exactly what speed the device syncs at. That's kind of a "gee whiz" feature... nice to have, not critical whatsoever.

Cons: I was hesitant to introduce this device into my house because I already have an existing HomePlug AV 2 (500Mbps) network. This device is a HomePlug AV (I guess 1) device, so I wasn't sure if it was going to be compatible, play nice, etc.

I'm happy to report that the TP-Link Nano is fully compatible with my HomePlug AV 2 devices! Though of course the Nano only gets regular HomePlug speeds, I had a HomePlug AV2 as my 'exit point' from the powerline to the regular ethernet network. It was able to consistently and constantly communicate with both my other HomePlug AV2 and the TP-Link HomePlug AV device concurrently. i.e. no compatibility issues whatsoever!

Other Thoughts: I have a bit of a different use case for my powerline adapters; I use them for my security cameras. So instead of having high bursts of data, I do continuous 24x7x365 data through them. This is actually a much harder task because it's relatively intolerant of lag and dropouts; if a camera goes down for even a second, the security DVR will throw an alarm on that attached camera.

I'm happy to report that after a week solid that I have had absolutely no dropouts using the TP-Link Nano Powerline Adapter. The cameras put through roughly 16Mbps continuously, which is not an insignificant load. All told I've transferred over 1TB of data through with nary a hiccup or problem. Phenomenal compatibility!

So in short, they're very small, they're very reliable, and setup is a breeze. Pretty much a home run for TP-Link!
