Powerline Adapter Shootout - Test Setup
For our Powerline tests, we used an application from TotuSoft called LAN Speed Test v2.0.8. LAN Speed Test is designed from the ground up to be a simple tool to accurately measure file transfer and network speeds over your local network.
For our test we used three different file size – 20MB, 1MB, and 100KB – to transfer between three different rooms in my house. We took the average speeds of 10 back-to-back file transfers to obtain our measurements. We conducted the tests twice for each of three rooms. For each Powerline we also tested streaming 720p and 1080p video files.
Of course, if you are looking to purchase a Powerline for your home, your mileage may vary when it comes to ultimate speeds, but we think using a variety of file sizes in rooms at different distances is a very good way to gauge relative performance between Powerline models.
