What features does this powerline kit have?
Expand your network using your home's existing power lines and transmit a network connection to any area in your home, whether you're connecting a WiFi router to the powerline socket or simply connecting through ethernet. Experience incredibly fast speeds of up to 2000Mbps which are passed through your power lines and into your connected device. A unified powerline network supports seamless streaming video, action-packed online gaming, and stable web browsing on tablets, laptops and smartphones in hard-to-reach places throughout your home. The TP-PA9020P creates fast, high performance wired connections which support all of your devices, like 4K HDTV. Now you can plug in to enjoy an exclusive fast lane out of a crowded network without slowing down. The integrated power socket means you can still get power from the outlet for your other devices.

How easy is it to set up a powerline network?
Setting up this powerline kit is easy and quick and can be done in three simple steps. Plug the TL-PA9020P into the wall and use an Ethernet cable to connect it to the router. Plug the other TL-PA9020P into the desired power outlet where you need extra coverage. Should the powerline adapters lose pairing, simply press the ‘Pair’ button on both adapters to create a secure network and you are done. Powerline adapters need to be connected to the same electrical circuit in order for them to pair and send signal. To add more extenders to your powerline network, just press the pair button on both devices. Once this process is complete you can manage the entire powerline network from any device and the changes will be synchronised on all network devices automatically.

How does powerline work?
Powerline technology transfers data using the electrical wiring of the household. This allows for a single powerline plug to be connected directly to a router and plugged into a mains socket. This plug will then communicate to all of the other plugs that are plugged in to the same electricity supply. This kit comes with a single powerline plug that connects to a router and another plug that will connect to your networked device and allow it to communicate to your router over the mains. The powerline adapters will communicate with each other when connected directly to mains sockets that are on the same fuse board. Additional receivers, including receivers which give a wireless signal, are sold separately to connect additional devices to your router. For the best results, use any powerline receiver capable of sending up to 500Mbps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much simpler than hard-wiring We bought these as we try to avoid wi-fi whenever possible. This seemed like a good alternative to flood-wiring our new home and we are not disappointed. Plugged one at the router and the other upstairs. 10seconds of light blinking and it all worked first time. Added two more units and they all network perfectly, including the Sky+ box. The pass through mains sockets work and we use them for things that don't need to be switched off at night. Is there a downside? Only that they cover the USB charging holes in my wall sockets, but we got round that. Excellent value for money, cheaper than wiring and I can move them about if I ever need to.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable when used with existing AV1200 units Added these two AV2000 units to an existing power line network with 4 x TP Link AV1200 units and they just would not play ball. They would get hot and then drop off the network. When in this state not even the TP Link software could communicate with them. They caused no end of issues and as soon as they were removed from the network everything worked normally again. I had hoped sticking with the same brand would have avoided compatibility issues. Sent back for a refund as they are not fit for purpose. Not risking a replacement set as as this cost me far too much time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job! After much uncertainty, which was mainly fuelled by lack of top speed reviews and warnings that 'actual speed is no where near the promised', i bought these two for my home network. With BT 300Mb fibre router in the under stairs wardrobe on ground floor (new built) i am getting exactly same speed (312mb actually) in my 1st floor bedroom as i would if plugged directly into router via cat6 cable! Can't comment on reliability yet as anly had them for a short while. Overall very impressed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very fast and very reliable GOT THESE BASED ON GOOD REVIEWS replace unreliable BT powerline wifi units. These AV2000s are amazing and getting 74MB/sec from 78MB//sec broadband despite being located 3 floors from the router.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant product Having plugged this unit in to replace a cheaper alternative my speed went from 8mbps to 125mbps for download and it trebles the upload speed, from what I can see this is the limit of my internet so the kit is not slowing it down. It is easy to use, just plug them in press the pair buttons and off you go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This Product has saved my sanity' having WIFI connection drop outs with SKY Q MINI BOX' was recommended a Powerline adaptor & chose this model. Now everything is working well without using yards of Ethernet cable. Highly recommend this to anyone having similar problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says on the tin Bought the TP-Link AV2000 kit (2 units) and one was DOA, Maplin kindly replaced. Set up a secure link (paired) between the two units as there is another paired link between 2 older units running in the same house and they work as separate networks, brill!

Can these be used on different ring mains only linked at the consumer board? I want to run them on downstairs and upstairs plugs but they are on different RCDs.

Asked by: newforestal
Yes they should be fine, I use a set myself and the upper / lower floors of my property are individually fused.

Hi, I already have this Powerline Kit and would now like to add a wifi booster to it to get signal at the other end of the house. Do TP do a plug in booster or will I need something else like another router? Many Thanks

Asked by: jgreen
Adding this kit to the one you already own will give you the Wi-Fi extension/boost you are looking for. (NB only one of this pair is a Wi-Fi entender)

currently i have four powrline 600 adaptors, 2 pairs running separately from my router. Could i replace this with one at the route (mother) and one at each (father) tv? this would be one network feeding two tvs using my earthing cable.

Asked by: philh
Yes this would be fine.

Both the units have 2 ethernet ports, does this mean if I wanted to use 2 devices on the receiving end I need to plug 2 ethernet leads into the transmitting end? I'm hoping to only need one router port, but have 2 outlets available on the receiving side.

Asked by: Wolfie
You would only need to have one cable in the plug next to the router, both ethernet ports would work on the receiver end.

Can the TP-Link powerline products be paired with existing Netgear products? I assume the same base tchnology is used?

According to the TP-Link web site, the current version of this product is version 2. Some shops are still selling older version 1 items. If I order from you will I get version 1 or version 2.

Asked by: Fossil
Thanks for answering Russell. So as to not put anybody off buying this kit, I can add that I asked TP-Link and they just confirmed that V2 is still in development and not released yet.

If you need to add to your existing AV2000 power line adapters, do you just get another starter kit, and do the pairing operation? I need another two wired internet access points but wasn't sure if that would work? Thank you

Asked by: Kriss
Yes this will work fine
