They just work, never requiring a restart (unlike the majority of Internet routers sold today ;-). I bought this 3 port updated version to replace an existing single port unit installed behind our bedroom TV; this one allows me to provide wired Ethernet to the Sky Hd and Western Digital video player boxes we have. The PA2030 unit is perfect, supporting up to 3 devices and seamlessly connecting to the existing AV200 adapters I have in the house, one of which is connected to our main Internet router. I regularly stream HD video across these devices either from on demand services (Sky on demand, iplayer, 4OD etc) or from my media NAS (Synology) and they never miss a beat.
Btw, I can't understand why you would buy the single pack of these (at £19.99) when the two pack of the same units is only £3 more! You're bound to need another one of these boxes at some stage, so having another in the cupboard for an extra 3 quid makes total sense to me. Having 3 ports probably saves a switch or another router behind areas like TVs or office desks where you need more than 1 wired device connected.
If you come to mix and match these home plugs I would tend to stick to one brand but also note that if you mix speeds your home will run at the slowest speed of the home plug variety you have connected, i.e. if you mix a 500mbps and 200mbps unit you'll only get 200mbps max, don't let this put you off as this is still very fast compared to where we were a few years ago.
I have yet to try these connected through extension cables but believe you'll get it to work but with slower speeds. What I originally thought of as a gadget that was unnecessary I am completely converted. I now have most of my home using the home plugs and am thankful to say that it even cured my Apple TV to iMac Wake on LAN issue, Wake on WiFi didn't seem to work since OS X 10.8 Lion upgrade but using these the actual Wake on LAN via cable still works a treat - wish I'd of though of this some time ago!
If you're tempted I'd say give em a go you'll end up with one in most rooms.
works ok, but think its the wiring in the house rather than the powerline device. I'm glad I didn't splash out on the more expensive faster ones, as I don't think my wiring is adequate fro faster speeds.
I already have 3 single tp-link PA211 200mps powerline units, these add to the network ok, can't always see the other devices when using the powerline utility, and sometimes get dropped connection. Difficult to say if its the router/network or the powerline devices.
Not overly pleased with the speeds, when I connect my laptop it showm a 10mbp connection, but utility shows varying connection speeds from 35-85 upstairs, over 100mb downstairs, but when I check the performance monitor its shows a max of about 60mbps .
It seems fast enough for what I use it for so far. time will tell if upstairs is ok, or if i need anther solution
