I purchased the BT 500 powerlink extenders a few months ago primarily so that I could use a wired connection for my Xbox One. When I first used them the wired connection worked like a charm, it was getting average of 50mb download. The wireless connection was useless, I was only getting sub 10mbs on it, but as I had bought it for the wired connection I wasnt bothered.
Anyway to cut a long story short, the other day I noticed that my game was lagging a lot more than usual and after doing a test I saw that my download speeds were sitting between 5 and 8 mbs. After doing a few tests I have narrowed it down to the powerlink. I have wired my laptop up to the router directly and I am getting speeds of plus 50mb and I have wired my xbox directly with the same results. I have switched plugs for my powerlink but to no avail.
Anyone have any ideas?
Unfortunately it didnt work.
My last test had my speed running at 4mbps download, 1.8mbps up.
As I said I would just put it down to faulty kit but I have had it running for 4 months without a single issue.................................. well except for the slow wireless speeds (which are still slow)
Just a thought
With your PLs in place ping your router over a period of time.
The response time should be 0 (zero)
