Ok so I got the powerline adapter called AV1000 TP Link. The reason I need a powerline is because getting LAN from where I work is impossible and well I would atleast like to get around 80-100 Mbps for my needs.

When I used a second Router as a repeater, I just managed to get 60 Mbps at 5 Ghz. Now with it acting as an access point as I have connected it to the powerline, it gives only around 40 Mbps( :( )
The main router is two rooms from my workroom.

The Powerline is

TP Link AV2 (TL-WPA7517KIT)


The second router I am using is Asus RT-AC53


my current ISP only provides like 225 Mbps so again, I just would need either 80-100 Mbps and that is enough for me. I am aware that this powerline depends on the electrical circuit(not sure what that means...) but I am now trying it rather than doing a refund because of it being my only option.

Any help is appreciatted.

Not only is powerline highly dependent upon the house wiring it also doesn't work well if the signal has to pass through the breaker panel between nodes. And, the nodes must be plugged directly into the wall. No extension cords or power strips. This should be spelled out in the documentation that comes with the product.

I just hooked it up in the plug point next to the UPS plug, where I use the PC and there it shows as 40 Mbps.

If I just test it without the powerline from the main router, it shows 150 Mbps.
