Solwise VeseNET PLA-AV-3E-PIGGY6 HomePlug - Screenshots

By Dave Mitchell



Our Score:


The bundled setup utility could only see the single test adapter and the displayed speeds are fantastical.

Two options for applying QoS for different traffic types are provided - the VoIP option wasn't available.

In systems with dual network ports you need to select the correct one to see the PowerLine adapters.

Firmware can be upgraded on the selected adapter but this doesn't apply to the Piggy6.

Add the adapter's ID from its label and you can change the private network name - but only for the standard PowerLine adapters and not the Piggy6{/centre}

It's not clear from the review why the scores are so low. Value is understandable, but with surge protection, powerline networking and a power bar all in one box it seems like the features score should be higher despite it's lack of admin page and performance is low despite mentioning that it was faster than another set of powerline adapters - are there some that are significantly faster than this?

It looks like a pretty nice device, it's a shame that wifi is still prefered over powerline networking making these things so expensive.
