Anyone using a powerline adapter ever had problems with csgo? Or even any other game like valorant?

Don't use this thing. Use a line filter.

When I used one, I would get lag spikes all the time and my up/down speeds were reduced to like a third of what I was getting previously. I upgraded to a mesh network setup (w/ ethernet connection to the nodes) instead and it's way better, you can get the TP link one for ~100 USD on amazon

Why don't you just use Ethernet?
2021-12-05 08:46
they were only ever good when wifi was complete and utter shit, they still have some use cases, but more than likely wifi will be better unless you cant be within 50 ft of the router, but you can use it. Probably does not make sense, just route an ethernet cable if you are in a house.

I've recently installed a Powerline Adapter for my PC, since I was having a lot of problems with wifi. So far I haven't noticed any problems, my internet runs fine and very stable. Keep in mind however that depending on your setup and electrical circuit, those Powerline adapters do tend to quite limit the speed of your connection (which is still fine for me cause we have 1000mbps down). Best option is surely just to get a LAN cable that runs from your router to your PC.

i would if that was an option. Ive had a powerline adapter for a while was just wondering how it fares with some people because ive been thinking of switching to something else like mesh wifi or such because ive had ping spikes since forever with mine.

it's probably the model or the cable. i got such a thing as well and it is working perfectly fine. at first i had insane lags, like input lags where the game would just freeze for some seconds and continue etc.. and that during an esea season.. xd upgraded the cable, resetted everything etc and it worked.

Thats what i figured but people on tomshardware were saying that it cant be the adapter because when pinging my router there was no loss or spikes but when pinging google servers there were lag spikes. could be the cables but i have switched between multiple cables so im not sure

they have high jitter which is bad for gaming even though it was faster and had lower ping than what I used to play csgo, the jitter was too high and it was actually worse.

Wifi 6 ax and it's basically like LAN..no need for crappy Powerline.

I didnt know this was a thing turns out i have it in my laptop. Might have to get a wifi mesh or something so i can use this instead

If your laptop has it, thats already good. Now your Router needs to support the wifi standard too. Its far better than older standards, imo. I get full speed and +- same ping as with cable connected.

Powerline is an old technology nowadays, better to get a good wifi 6 card + wifi 6 router

i dont understand this. All the people who say "it looks weird running a cable alongside the walls" need to just try it for a few days. after a few days they wont even notice it anymore.

for some people the ethernet cable along the walls isnt feasible. for me, getting a cable long enough would cost too much and would need to be maintained but i can understand why its better for other people

Cost too much? Sorry but if 20-30euro is too much of an "investment" into having stable internet connection idk what to say .... "Maintained"? What.

for me to reliably have ethernet cables from my router to my room i would have to run the cable outside, to an extent. it would be exposed to the conditions, meaning i would have to maintain it to avoid replacement. powerline just becomes a much easier solution overtime

I used to play with a powerline, it was horrible. Using ethernet cable from the powerline, I was having a lot of lag spikes in-game and when playing faceit, I had to always restart cs with clientport option. Since moving to ethernet from my router, I never had any problem.
