Never had a problem with them, definitely better than gaming on wifi.

I used to use the TP link ones, Till I punched a hole in the floor. They worked fine, not as good as hard wired but as Mr Blues said, better than wifi.

I use TP Link also and they work great, remember not to plug into extension cords though as it can hinder performance.

It really depends on the house. Some will perform better than others. My friend used them and while better than wifi he still had major ping and jitter issues in a fairly new house. Eventually just gave in and ran a 200 foot wire from one end to the other.

I had some tp link ones too back when my router was at the other end of the house. They worked pretty well, even over trailing sockets (not recommended), definitely better than wifi.

 

In the end I took a hammer drill to the walls and ran a cable though. I made lots of holes.


I like cats and cheese and CoD. Don't mix them up, it'll ruin your lunch and your Xbox. And your cat.

One more question,would it be a good or bad idea to run the netduma out of the other home plug,so ethernet out of isp hub into home plug downstairs ethernet out of homeplug upstairs straight into port 1 of duma and run everything from up there?
