My System Specs

Default Network speed mystery

2 types of powerline adapter:

TPL-401E
500 Mbps powerline
10/100/1000 Mbps ethernet

TPL-406E
500 Mbps powerline
10/100 Mbps ethernet

The mystery for me is the 406E. It has 500 Mbps powerline but the ethernet which is used to connect to pc is only 100 Mbps. How can it achieve 500 Mbps speed (in ideal conditions)? Would the ethernet limit it to 100Mbps?

I actually have a pair of 401E and the actual speed is bout 200 Mbps while the 406E working in the same location would only give me about 150 Mbps. So is the 406E being limited by the 10/100 ethernet connection?

Please enlighten me. Thanks.
