Hi

 

Have you tried using the Tp-link utility and turning off Power Save Mode on each plug as sometimes they forget to wake up. You may have to turn off your antivirus to use the utility as it won't find any plugs on my PC with it turned on.

Hi Joe, you can get better quality DSL cables than the usual in-the-box types, but they will still invariably degrade the signal over distance. What reason do you have for relocating the router? A lot of this is trial and error, so at the end of the day for the sake of a few quids worth of cable just try it out and see what happens!  🙂

Hi Joe, without a doubt it will be better, direct wired connections always are. The issue is usually inconvenience of course. 

 

Have you checked the powerline adapter help articles?
