Should a powerline ethernet bridge be affecting a wi-fi network speed? I installed a Netgear powerline bridge using one port of a D-Link DIR-825 router. It affects both 2.4 & 5GHz bands.

I did a Speedtest and got normal download speeds but horrible upload speeds.
Pingtest gave me an "F" :mad:

Any ideas/solutions?

No. I've installed Powerline Ethernet at a couple places (including my home) and wi-fi is unaffected. I get .98 Mbps upload speed on my iPad using the SpeedTest app. Are you in a condo/apartment? Do you have encryption set on your powerline adapters?

Agree with NeilN.

Have you tested with Powerline off and on?

Not yet.

Did a Pingtest last night, got an "A"
Did another one this morning, got a "D"

Argh.
