Powerline

Currently using a TP-Link AV1000 Powerline that's connected to my Netgear C7500.

When I plug an ethernet cable directly from my router to my laptop I get 300+ Mbps, but through the powerline adapter that goes to my room I only get ~100 Mbps.  Is it normal to lose that much speed?  Tried different outlet and it's pretty much the same.

Re: Powerline

It’s possible, you could always work through TP link support to double check

Perhaps a WiFi connection from the C7500 to your room would yield better performance / speed than using powerline ethernet adapters ?
