1.0 out of 5 stars Not so Fast, 12 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Devolo dLAN 500 AVtriple+ Starter Kit (Electronics)
Unfortunately, the only way I could get any speed was to have the two units plugged into the same socket (447Mbit/s send and 553Mbit/s receive)
If I go one room away then it drops to 389Mbit/s send and 421Mbit/s receive
If I try upstairs to downstairs then it drops down to 150Mbit/s send and 114Mbit/s receive)
If I try upstairs to downstairs AND the front of house to the back of the house then I only get 40Mbit/s send and 73Mbit/s receive)
It's not as if I live in a mansion the total distance is only 20 meters - the extra cost for the extra speed seems to be a waste of money.

Chris says:
This is pretty much standard. The numbers of the product - dlan 200 and dlan 500 - are the nominal value (i.e. "up to..."), you will never achieve those speeds over an extended run of mains cabling.

Having said that, the speeds you are getting are a little low when going from upstairs front to downstairs back, although you should still be able to stream HD video. For comparison, I am getting 384 from my upstairs office to downstairs lounge, and 170 out to my external garage. If you are using extension leads, this can impact on your speeds, you want to plug the adapters into the mains socket if at all possible.

It does also depend on the age of your wiring as the older it is the less speed it can carry the signal.
Have to say I have had no probs with speed but as above said you will never get the full speed advertised just like your BB provider says up to 20meg but you end up with say 15.
