This is an interesting comparison of a power line adapter vs. a MOCA device used over cable wiring. It is a sponsored video, but clearly expresses that and the numbers are the numbers.

I love my moca adapters, but I just moved into my new house that has not been prewired with coax. Considering doing powerline adapters but so far wireless has suited my needs.

These are great adapters and a really good price. Only downside is they don't have the pass through power outlet that comes in handy since using the second outlout on standard wall plate will be partially blocked and you may not get some 3 prong plugs into it. I have the ones with pass through outlet and very happy with them

I have questionably old wiring in my house, does that affect the effectiveness of these adapters?

Yes, older wiring will cause more resistance and loss causing slower speeds. It will still work though, just dont be expecting to max out the adapters full potential. In most cases unless your going a long distance should still be pretty fast.

Wish these had pass through as a friend needs one of these, but I think I will still bite cause where they will be relocating the router I doubt they will need the other power outlet.

The wirecutter a pretty good website rated the TP link passthrough ones as the best out of all the AV2000 currently out there. Included the link below if anyone wants a good read on the reviews of the brands. The zyxel brand was in second place by a close margin to the TP-link so I guess whichever you find cheaper is the best option. I was surprised to see my D-links not in the top 2, which just goes to show you, sometimes the big brand names are not the best.

Solid deal, second hand ones on eBay go for just as much after shipping. No tax, really can't complain. I've got these exact units, and looking to use these new ones to change some wired AppleTVs to wired to improve reliability.

I have gigabit speed through Verizon; however, I don't max out above 450mb on a good day. I think the issue is my apartment is wired with CAT 5 Ethernet cables.

If I use these, well that help me get to gigabit speeds?

Just want to chime in on this. I got the passthrough pa9020p model from Newegg about a year ago and have been very happy with it. Never loses connection and while I've never tested the top speed on data transfer it's faster than my internet which is all I really need. Only complaint, and it may be different with the non passthrough model, is the unit blocks the bottom of the outlet above it just enough to prevent a 3 prong grounded outlet from being used.

For those who are saying they wish it was passthrough, consider that the passthrough models are taller and effectively block the upper outlet if you're putting this in the lower outlet. These non-passthrough models have a lower profile and therefore you can put it in the lower outlet and still access the top outlet. So effectively they both accomplish the same thing of leaving one outlet for use but these non-passthrough are cheaper.

No the cat 5 will or should be faster. Have you done a check to actual make sure your provider is giving you 1gig bandwidth? Plug in a laptop directly without using a router into the modem and see what speeds you get?

Thanks for the link. I was able to get the zyxel for $40 in Dec glad to see it on the list.

Do anybody have any links or recommendation on how to have multiple sets function in the same home but not on the same network? I have 1 set that allows me to have my Uverse modem in 1 room but my router in a different room the router does act as a router, not just an AP. And then the 2nd set to connect devices to my router. When I tried and connected the additional set to the wiring it wants to connect to the 1st.

No. While it depends on your house's wiring, no one gets gigabit speeds. I have the TP-Link version of this tech in a house built in 1978 and average about 100 Mbps (11 megabytes per second).

Been waiting for the Zyxel to drop. They've been $79 forever. This is nice timing.
