I'm still working on this. I bought the AC1780 router and set it up in
AP Mode with the TP-Link software that it came with and that seems to
work. I also bought the TP-Link Ethernet adapters "TP-Link Powerline
Adapter AV2000 Mbps - Gigabit Port, Ethernet Over Power, Plug&Play,
Power Saving, MU-MIMO, Noise Filtering(TL-PA9020P KIT)"
and that turns out to be the weak link. We live in a rural area and our
power is reliable but I do get occasional monetary drops the make the UPS
s beep and apparently that is causing the Ethernet adapters to become
unpaired. This morning I reset them and paired them hear at my computer
where it is convent to do. put the second one downstairs where the A/P
is and everything was restored. We cut the power at the circuit breaker
while doing some electrical work and when we switched it back on the
system was unpaired again. That explains the intermittent problem we are
having with the internet connection, most likely due to minor glitches
in power I suspect.
You can test the claim: "Industry leading support: 2-year and free 24/7 technical
support. Contact ussupport@tp-link if you have any questions".
This making the system too unreliable to use and I am considering
returning the Ethernet Adapters to Amazon if there is no other
explanation, some thing I can fix that is.
has anyone else had experience with this, am alone? I would like some
I think homeplug is designed to recover after power outages. HPAV
added support for streaming (AV), look for hpav-white-paper_050818.pdf.
Can you try running the devices in legacy (HP 1.0) mode?
