5.0 out of 5 stars TP Link 'Mini' 200Mbps powerline adapter, 6 July 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TP-Link TL-PA211 AV200 Nano 200Mbps Powerline Adapter - Single Pack (Accessory)
I purchased a single one of these to add to an existing pair of 200Mbps powerline adapters of a 'premium' brand.

I already have one adapter connected to to my router and a wireless one that I move around but the wife keeps stealing it for her Lap Top as they work so well.

Looking for a cheap third adapter ( so she will stop taking mine), I saw this and thought take a punt it's cheap.

The actual adapter came boxed and well packaged. It is far slimmer than my other PL adapters and still runs cooler. There is no more lag than there is with the other adapters and it connected straight away using the easy connect button even though it is a different make.

There is absolutely nothing to criticise re this adapter , it is just as good as the
well known 'premium' powerline brand and maybe even better due to cool running and slim profile.

As a result of owning this product , I will confidently purchase TP-Link products again.

Hi

Just wondering how you go thtis to work with adaptors that weren't of the same brand? I can't get this to connect to the others on my system (all of a different brand) as it seems the TP-Link has to be paired with others of the same brand. Have tried everything - unless you have a simple solution?!!

Thanks.

it connects to
D-Link DHP-307AV/B 200 MBPS
D-Link DHP-306AV/B 200 MBPS
TP-link can also be configured with 'Powerline AV Utility' - which comes with D-Link - for changing 'Encryption key setting' etc

I bought a single plug to add to 2 existing ones which I bought previously to enable Sky Anytime+ downstairs and which have been working well. This extra one was to enable Sky+ in the bedroom.
I managed to get it to work last night but this morning Anytime+ wasn't working and all the lights were flashing on the plug.
I have tried resetting as suggested in the manual. This reduced the flashing to just the power light flashing but couldn't get a steady light. As soon as I connected it to the Sky box it went back to 3 lights flashing in unison and no amount of resetting will get rid of the 3 flashing lights.
As it was all working fine last night I have thrown the packaging it arrived in :(
Can anyone help please as I have been trying to sort it out all morning.
Thanks

Have you tried swapping one you knoe is still working with the one playing up ?
If you do and it works in place of the ' dodgy one' there are only two possible causes
1) The one playing up has lost its encryption key ie its no longer 'twinned'
2) It is as we say in the trade knackered :)

Hi Mas
Thanks for your prompt reply.
The plug from the lounge is working in the bedroom but the new one still has 3 flashing lights when I first plug it in and won't reset. If I leave it for 10 mins it goes to just the power light flashing which I read in the instructions is the plug going into power saving mode, but when I press the pairing button nothing happens, the power light just keeps flashing. Have tried knocking everything off, resetting using cd etc, nothing working.

I dont have any of these yet.. looking to buy.. but.. out of curiosity.. why not plug the tempremental one, right next to the master (is it in a double wall socket?) and see if it pairs that way.. its got no electrical network to travel through as its a matter of centimeters away... see if it pairs then? If it does.. try other sockets in the house..
