This review is from: TRENDnet TPL-308E2K Powerline 200 AV Nano Adapter Kit Up to 200Mbps
Easy to set up
Less than stellar directions
These are very simple devices, largely plug and play. They all come with a default encryption key though, so that should be changed during setup. The manual details the process - press and hold sync button until PWR LED starts flashing, do the same to any other units within 2 minutes. The software utility lets you do this as well. The utility also lets you see connected adapters and their link quality and even update their firmware. 8 devices can be connected into one network.
The devices have a 100 Mbps full duplex interface (100 up, 100 down = 200).
I recently updated a lot of wiring and our breaker box so I have a good mix of old and new wiring.
I ran some testing with LAN Speed Test using a packet size of 10 MB over 100 packets.
Testing over new 12ga wiring:
Minimum upload - 50.98.79 Mbps
Minimum download - 32.84 Mbps
Maximum upload - 55.79 Mbps
Maximum download - 46.21 Mbps
Average upload - 53.79 Mbps
Average download - 42.67 Mbps
New and old (knob and tube) mix, with power strip:
Minimum upload - 33.13 Mbps
Minimum download - 26.80 Mbps
Maximum upload - 42.57 Mbps
Maximum download - 36.09 Mbps
Average upload - 40.87 Mbps
Average download - 30.90 Mbps
