Do not buy TP-Link products

I purchased some TP-Link 200Mb/s powerline networking plugs as an alternative to wifi. Worked perfectly for 6 months. Now they drop the connection several times a day. Can be fixed by unplugging the network cable from the PC, and plugging it back in again (or turning off the corresponding plug). The problem has been widely reported, but apparently not fixed. My advice: don't buy products from TP-Link.
