Does TPL-302E actually transmit and receive at 200Mbps speed?
200Mbps is theoretical data transfer rate over the network. Actual data throughput varies due to data transfer overhead and environmental factors such as signal noise and network traffics. Power fluctuations can also influence the actual throughput of the unit. You must use TPL-302E throughout you...
 
Will using the TPL-302E interfere with other Powerline or home networking device?
No it will not. The TPL-302E can work adjacent to phone lines, other Powerline devices, and wireless devices because it uses different cabling (electrical cable)....
 
What is the difference between the TPL-202E and the TPL-302E?
The TPL-302E is able to connect up to 200Mbps, up from the 85Mbps of the TPL-202E. The TPL-302E is also Vista compatible and offers a 128bit AES encryption whereas the TPL-202E only offers 56bit DES encryption. The TPL-302E is not compatible however with other TRENDnet Powerline devices as the TPL...

I live in a hotel/apartment that uses different power phases. Will the TPL-302E work between the phases or does there need to be separate ones for each phase?
The TPL-302E is not designed to work through different power phases. However taking a few units to do a site survey for the location is recommended....
 
Will the TPL-302E work between two buildings?
No, the TPL-302E is designed to work within a common circuit breaker and not to penetrate it.
 
What are the benefits of using TPL-302E?
TPL-302E uses Powerline technology to enable computers to share files and network resources over standard electrical wires already installed in homes and offices. TPL-302E can greatly reduce time and cost to network computers where installing new network cables can be difficult or impossible. TPL-30...
 
What is the transmit range of the TPL-302E?
Maximum electrical cabling length is 300 meters (984 feet) between any TPL-302E adapters. Exact electrical cable length that runs through your home or office is usually unknown. We recommend using 2 TPL-302E to test data communication in intended location to ensure compatibility....
 
How many TPL-302E can one use in a network?
There is a maximum of 16 units that can be installed in a pure Powerline network. You may create a network using TPL-302E alone. In most cases, users may want to install TPL-302E and coexist with wired or wireless network. ...
