Which PowerLINE adapter is best?

  Joy Hanson 14:13 10 May 2019

After phoning Sky yesterday about my very weak signal in another room (I use Sky Fibre max) and my router/hub being a narrow 2.5GHz, a tech guy suggested to buy a TP link passthrough PowerLINE starter kit from Amazon UK. I read the helpful reviews and ordered from Amazon, a TL-PA8030P. The TL-WP7510 looks very good and the more expensive TL-WPA8630P/TP link AV 1000. The review indicates I should check it has Gigabit Ethernet ports. Which is the best one out of these please? Does the model I ordered have Gigabit Ethernet ports?

I have Devolo Magic 2 . Base linked to router then use mains for 2 pass through LAN and wi fi spots. Bought via Amazon Each have 2 Ethernet ports plus wi fi. Hope others will comment on your choice.

AV1200 3-Port Gigabit Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit

This is not a wireless extender and will do nothing to give you a better wireless signal "With 3 gigabit Ethernet ports, TL-PA8030P KIT can simultaneously connect up to 3 wired-only devices"

TL-WP7510 is a wireless extender

TL-WPA8630P/TP link AV 1000 is your best bet of the three if budget allows.
