The only difference i see is 'gigabit' i would have guessed this means it can transfer 1gbps but it says 500mbps on it aswell. Which one would be better for gaming?

  1. "TL-PA511 provides blazing speeds streams at up to 500Mbps "

    "TL-PA411KIT provides users with stable, high-speed data transfer rates of up to 500Mbps on a line length of up to 300 meters."


    You probably won't see any speed difference between the two, in the same house.
  2. Unless you have more than a 100m internet connection it doesn't really matter. Even the ones that have the gig ports seldom get above 100m unless you are very lucky and you have some optimum house wires.

    So the PA511 is faster in general but at long range the PA411 will be faster? IS that what you are saying?

    I'm saying that is just marketing-speak. Almost certainly no discernible difference in performance between the two.
