Greetings. I recently started using Powerline Adapters, since I can't connect my router to my computer directly. It works fine, but there's a problem: whenever I leave my computer turned off for a few hours, the internet download and upload speeds go down massively, and my ping is capped at 60. I have to restart the adapters for the speed to go up again, and for the ping to go down to 12. This is really annoying since I have to restart the adapters everytime I turn on my computer or whenever I want to play online.

It is likely they are going into powersave mode due to lack of traffic. It takes a while for them to "wake up" hence your ping issue.

If they are using the Qualcomm QCA75090 Powerline /Atheros LAN chipset, you can use any number of utilities to turn off the power save feature.

I'm kind of a noob in these things. I'm using the TP-Link AV600 adapters, can you tell me how can I disable the powersave mode?
