The maximum I got with Devolo Hispeed was 3.4MBytes. Two rooms near each other.
>From one room to the opposite room 1.2Mbyte.
>From one room the the basement (cellar, 1 floor below) only 340Kbyte). Actually they were just 3 meters from each other :)
Be aware when speaking in Mbps, this is also used for advertisements, is that it contains the overhead within it.
>From Devolo Support:
Von der dort angezeiten Übertragungsrate nehmen die Protokolldaten für TCP, Ethernet und dLAN ca. 65% in Anspruch, sodas für die
reine Datenübertragung normalerweise ca. 35% gemäß der Anzeige im Informer zur Verfügung stehen. Ihre erwähnten 20% sind in der Tat
weniger, als zu erwarten wäre.
Translated this means that 65% is used for TCP, Ethernet and DLAN Protokolldata. Only 35% is used for the actual data !!!! This is
In my best-case I only got 3.4MBytes.
