I have experienced exactly the same issue as other people have, ie it disconnects after a while, you need to unplug it and plug it back again in order for it to reconnect. This is an unreliable product that should not be on the market until this issue is fixed.
On the other hand I own 2 other regular devolo dLan500 (NOT TRIPLE) that work perfectly well with effective 275Mish speeds. So this issue seems to be specific to the triple version.

I've been using three Devolo dLAN 200 AVplus Home Plugs in my house for over a year now and they have been 100% reliable. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the dLAN 500. Even though my dLAN 500 is plugged into the same power socket as previously used by one of my dLAN 200's, the 500 intermittently loses its connection with the rest of my Home Plug network. It only appears to do this when coming out of power save mode. If the 500 is prevented from going into power save mode by connecting it to a computer or other device that doesn't ever power down its Ethernet socket (such as a Sky HD box) then everything is fine; the 500 reliably keeps its connection with the rest of the Home Plug network. But if the 500 is allowed to "go to sleep", then sooner or later when it wakes from its sleep it won't be able to connect to the Home Plug network and the only way to make it work again is to unplug it, wait a few seconds and plug it back in again.

I thought my dLAN 500 might just be faulty, so I returned the first one I bought to Amazon and requested a new one be sent. Unfortunately the new one behaves in exactly the same way and so this leads me to believe that dLAN 500's are just not as reliable as dLAN 200's - or at least are much fussier about getting a really good connection with the other Home Plugs in your network. I would point out that I live in a modern house with good quality electrical cabling, so if the 500's are indeed much more fussy about the quality of the electrical cabling they work over, I wonder how they would operate in an older house with lower quality cabling?

So based purely on my own experience of using dLAN 200 and dLAN 500 Home Plugs, my advice would be that if reliability is important to you, I would only buy dLAN 500's if their extra speed is vitally important to you, or you must have the extra Ethernet sockets the AVtriple provides. Otherwise I'd just go for the dLAN 200, which seems to be rock solid in its reliability.

I have an iMac connected to the dLAN AV500Triple+, providing connection to the router .
When I put my iMAC in Sleep status, the dLAN AV500Triple+ goes to Stand-by status. I know this is normal.
But when I wake-up the iMAC, the dLAN AV500Triple+ stays in Stand-by status. It does not wake-up.
I need to wait few minutes before it starts and get ON status. Very annoying.
Devolo Support says that there is no way to avoid the Stand-by status, and that there is also no way to get the dLAN faster out of the Stand-by status.
Moreover, often the dLAN AV500Triple+ is hanging and there is no connection anymore for few seconds, sometimes minutes. I verified that behaviour using multiple ping sent from different devices at the same time, and I can demonstrate that only the dLAN AV500Triple+ has this problem, the other devices of the same brand that I have in my network work normally, so I don't think this is due to interferences.

Like all the other Devolo dLAN 500AV+ adapters it works well and is a pleasure to install - if it suits your set-up it can be highly recommended.

However, this last point above is very relevant. At its current (at time of writing review) competitive price on Amazon it may represent good value, but at its previous price levels or high street prices its value is debatable.

It is also great if you need just two or three connections. Probably enough for most I guess?

However, you can arrange the same multi-point flexibility with more outlets and often cheaper by the use of a cheap ethernet switch, which is typically less than the premium between a one port and three port adapter. I recently picked up such a switch for £3.50.

I bought one 500 AVtriple+ after having a pair of dlan200s aveasy for years that are still running strong. When I bought this one I had to update software on the 200s to make them work together. The integrated 3-port gigabit switch was the main attraction.

The device was working well, but after one year it died (all lights went off) and unplugging, plugging it back did not work. I sent it to Devolo under warranty and got a replacement unit in a few days.

The replacement unit died a few days back (so it had around 6 months service). Meanwhile the devolo 200s keep working ok.I can still claim under warranty again, but the fact that 2 units have died on the same way is not good. My systems run 24x7 and I cannot have downtimes every 6 - 12 months.

I have now gone for a standalone gigabit switch combination with 2 x devolo 500avplus (which I have no seen any reviwer mentioning they die) and see how it goes. I hope they are as reliable as the 200s.

I give it three stars because device worked ok while it did, also, reading other manufacturers, they die too. But I was expecting longer life.

This is a replacement for an adapter that has just stopped working Devolo dLAN 500 AVtriple+ Starter Kit. Very frustrating that it has happened twice. Fortunately had a wifi connection as a standby. This is not good enough for a premium priced product. If it happens again all the adapters I have (3) will be returned for something more reliable.
