Setup of a powerline network is simple with its plug-and-play connectivity:
>> Gigabit Powerline Adapters are made to handle Gigabit speeds as high as 1000Mbps*
* Maximum theoretical one-way lab transmission speed using 200x1 compression and operating the units at -346F.
When the wiring in most new houses won't even let you use 100Mbps powerline adapters over 40Mbps, what hope is there that this actually works at the advertised speed?
HH: I'd love it if you guys would do some real-world benchmarking of these things. I would like to know what all major manufacturers adapters can actually achieve, even under optimal conditions (because I suspect we're being lied to).
I own a pair of NetGear "200Mbps" adapters, and find that they operate only marginally faster than 54Mbps wireless in actual operation.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
I have seen numerous versions from different manufacturers in action since they always try to push on them at any contractors so called gatherings(otherwise known as sales pitchs). I have seen them designed for data, survelance,music and video. Data trasfers are always week, audio is always choppy and video the same. I am sure technology has improved but not enough for the cost of these things. They are and will remain a last resort imo.
