Xr500 and powerline adapters

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I want to purchase the xr500 I was just wondering will it work with powerline adapters.

I live in a flat and need to use powerline adapters to get internet in the bedroom.

done a speed test and get half of what I get in the living room wired on 350mb down and 20 up ( I got 170mb down and 20 up with a 10ms ping) 

will the x500 give me good reading and connection even though using powerline adopters? 

 

Thanks

May be the quality of the wiring in your home as thats what it uses to extend the connection

Yeah it’s crazy the connection in the living room is perfect. And it’s only a small flat 

The connection in the other room is spot on ping and upload just the download effected.

will this make a big difference when I get the xr500.

im still getting a 9m ping and 20 upload.

How old is the wiring in your flat? The XR500 will not increase your speeds through your powerline if the speeds are less anyway but that depends on what you are using to test your speeds with such as speedtesting through a console is a bad choice. It could be your powerline adaptors. You could buy another set from amazon and if they do not improve the speeds it is your wiring and you can return to amazon for a full refund! :)
