NEWBIE - Devolo Plugs (one room issue)


[link to this post]
 
I have DEVOLO DLAN plugs in many rooms in the houses and am getting good speeds throughout EXCEPT for in ONE room where the speeds are poor...what can I do to fix this?

All the DLANs are plugged directly into wall sockets

Home Plugs are still subject to distance limits so it may be this is just the best you can manage in that room with them.

Solution would be to run Ethernet from a room with a good connection.

Have you tried temporarily moving one of the "good" plugs from an adjoining room to the room that is running slow? This may show if there is a problem with the plug rather than the wiring.

While the rooms are adjoining there is the possibility that the actual mains wiring distance is considerably different. Or there may be a noise source causing reception problems in the room.

As suggested if the plugs are all of the same model testing them systematically to see if one performs better in the 'slow' location is one option.

Is that one room a later extension, possibly with RCB rather than simple fuses?

Almost certainly wiring - I have a similar issue. The house has been rewired piecemeal - room by room as we do it up. Probably a mistake in hindsight - but too late now! This has left one room with very old (1960's) multi-strand mains wiring, which is apparently not good for powerline networking. Modern single solid core wiring is much better. Unfortunately this is the room with most of network connected computer kit! Struggling on with a Wi-Fi solution for the moment, but will be fixed when we get round to the renovation.

Wireless AC wifi range extenders are faster than powerline in my home.

Home Plugs use radio signals on the same range as VDSL
that can cause havoc with your internet connection i would go with a wireless ac bridge.
