Questions & Answers

When two kits (4 units each) are connected to the router, will only one of them work?

The answer is yes. If you connect one unit to a router via a LAN connection, that becomes the hub for all units. The only thing we use WiFi for is to check our phones, which we have six throughout our house. There is only the occasional reset, but throughput is excellent.

What is the impact of encryption on ?

As far as I can tell, encryption is always on, but users start out with a network name (key) that any user Through software or your ENCRYPT key, you can change the network name to make your network more secure. However, the encryption will always be present. The following has been updated The difference between the two results of a formal measured test was not significant.

Is it possible to connect a second router to the unit apart from the primary one?

The answer is yes. Standard hub functionality is provided by this unit. Any other network equipment you would connect to a standard port can be connected to the hub, another router or another hub to expand the two ports.

4/5

ZyXEL's PLA5456 HomePlug AV2 MIMO powerline adapter is easy to use, and one of the fastest available at the time of this review (April 2016), but it should be noted that the following caveats should be considered Despite the fact that it is one of the fastest adapters, you will never reach the throughput specified on any of them. In the ATM industry, unfortunately, it is the nature of the business. In their lab testing, this product topped out at 350 Mbits/sec, not the advertised 1800 Mbps speed in their commercial. In the professional testing used to recommend it to me, it was the fastest powerline adapter I had ever used. Since it was also one of the fastest connections I could find at the moment, and I still have a slower 100 Mbit Internet connection at home, I did not consider this a big deal. When I tested my adapters, I found that two of them were plugged in back-to-back At about 290 megabits per second, the data was transmitted back and forth. I was exposed to whatever noise fell on my power lines since I did not have home wiring. When linked directly to one another, the two computers I used for my throughput test were capable of communicating at 940 Mbps (almost one gigabit per second). It was obviously the adapters that were the bottleneck. In my testing, I discovered several other things you should keep an eye out for that may The UNsuppressed 3 will be added The powerline adapter (PLA) should be spaced out from the wall by using a power tap It's less than 5 I don't know. But it's at least 9 Mbps Please don't plug a suppressed outlet strip into the PLA (not the other way around, as this is not recommended. I was able to get 11 Mbps, so we lost When you plug in a loud Halogen lamp into the same A plus 16 minus The speed was 42 Mbps, or 7 Mbps less than the advertised speed There was an increase in interference of 18% (dimming). In order to move the PLA from the same circuit breaker to another in another outlet on the opposite side of the house, you have to do the following The maximum data rate is 150 Mbps or less Five out of ten. The deviation to the remote outlet was decreased only by 0. 1% when the router's PLA was moved to a wall outlet on another circuit breaker in the same room. A bit rate of 11 Mbits or -1Mbits This is a much better alternative to 1. 5 Gigabits per second In the above chart, 52% is shown. Therefore, if you are doing speed testing, we strongly recommend looking for other outlets within reach of your start and end locations. Additionally, while plugging a suppressed power strip into a PLA appeared to lower the throughput as shown above, plugging a UPS into one appeared to boost it by 10 Mbps. In that case, your environment will be a very important factor for your adapter's performance. Due to the fact that I believe the adapter is always encrypted, I did not notice any noticeable difference between the just-plug-and-play and the default one Encryption keys can be used on both units, and the configuration can be used on both. In order to perform the test, I used iPerf on a Mac running OS X. In sum, they don't live up to their advertising hype in the real world (or even in a lab, for that matter! There are 11g wireless networks. It is used across circuit breakers to serve a wired-in outlet on the far side of the house PTZ network camera is the only type available. Please let me know if this is of any use to you.

I was pleased with my results, but not quite so much as I It is at the far end of my house from the cable modem/router where I have my office
4/5

Between the router and my desktop computer, I am about 40 feet away. My dual-boot PC has been my primary machine until recently The most important component of my primary internet connection is a dual-band wireless USB adapter. Every now and then, when a faster and more reliable connection was needed, I would whip out my 100-Mbps mobile hotspot A direct connection from my computer to the router can be made by running a 7-foot Ethernet cable. My wife does not like the long cable running through the house that brought the faster connection. A few days ago, I found a Powerline Adapter on sale, and I decided to give it a try. I am giving you my honest opinion here, so you'll see what it's really like Results from around the world. My goal is to show you a comparison of the speed of my internet connection under all three scenarios so you can see for yourself whether or not this product is right for you. As you can see, in the first screenshot I posted, my internet connection has a true download speed while using a 100Mbps modem Using a foot-long ethernet cable, I am able to connect my desktop computer directly to my 90 miles per hour was the speed. The speed of 1 Mbps (or Three megabytes per second). Consider this to be my baseline. This is the speed I would like to see from this Powerline Adapter (or something close). Because they claim speeds of up to 1800Mbps, 90 is reasonable. It doesn't appear impossible for 1Mbps to be possible, In the second screenshot you can see the speed with which I was getting from my dual-core machine A wireless adapter that supports multiple bands. As of right now, the wireless adapter can provide speeds of up to 450 Mbps. It would be ideal if the conditions were perfect. It was a lot to ask of this unit due to the signal having to pass through three walls and a closet, and it was surrounded by a solid wall This door is the core. Because of this, I was not totally surprised that only 11 were left. Five megabytes per second) Lastly, we arrive at my third screenshot, which is Powerline Adapter. That would be the one for this device. With 59Mbps, the speed is more than five times greater than what the wireless adapter could provide. It runs at 7Mbps (17. When it was four megabits per second) it was still only about two I am only able to reach three-quarters of the speed I intended. The unit is good enough for me to probably keep it, but I had hoped for a better model. There is one thing that I should disclose The two powerline adapter units are not on the same circuit breaker, but they are connected to the same Main breaker by two circuits. Furthermore, I would like to say that setting up this powerline adapter system was fairly simple. One of the two Ethernet patch cables included in the kit was run from the unit to an open port on my router, and one unit was plugged into the wall outlet closest to my As I walked to the other end of my house, I plugged in the other unit into the wall outlet that was As soon as I had connected the second ethernet patch cable to my PC, I turned it on so my computer would be connected. I will leave it at that. It was almost immediate for me to connect to the internet. The configuration did not require any changes. I just did it and it.
