Harry Akira Eaton says:

I’m currently using 500Mbps Powerline, it’s better than WiFi and I’m getting decent speeds, but after watching this and the video where you run external ethernet cables, I think I’ll upgrade to proper cabling through my house.

🙂 this needs an update, cause im looking to upgrade

J Zoidberg says:

What about repeaters?

Ronny Cardoso says:

Does it the powerline adapter work on 2-3 different circuits in the house? And what about E-smog, is there any risk?

Kurtis Weaver says:

Thank You, this video was helpful


Dont need to wach that – to know the wiered conection is the fastest 😉

timpster ninetythree says:

If the powerline adapter host had to go through that 100 feet of Ethernet cable then I think the test is a bit unfair.

Are there issues if you have a fusebox in your house?

Zack says:

Eka .Ramdhan says:

i dunno, whenever seeing this guy my head humming lonely no more, disease and little wonder song

Admer456 says:

I can’t use Powerline, lol. At the time of writing, there are only 3 unused sockets in the entire house (whereas 1 will be used for the socket strip for my new PC in summer). Since I’m fine with lots of wiring and mess, I’ll just use Ethernet cables. 😛
