I recently bought this kit (LINK) which claims up to 1200Mbps, I know not to expect anywhere near that, but when I hooked it up, I'm only seeing a max of 56Mbps (7MBps). It is hooked up in my home, on two outlets that are attached to the same breaker box (different breakers).

I bought this as an upgrade to an 85Mbps kit I had, but my transfer speeds only increased from 48Mbps (6MBps) to the 56Mbps. I expected to see more of an increase!

I'm doing all of this so I can use Steam in home streaming to play PC games in my home theater, but as it is right now, I'm getting horrible stuttering, mainly because the connection speed is so low.

Anyone have any ideas on if there is anything I can do to speed up the connect?

Thanks for any insight you can give!

Additional info:
One unit is connected directly to my router, the other is connected to a 5 port switch in the home theater. I have tried removing the switch and running it directly to my HTPC, but the speeds were exactly the same. My main desktop is hard wired to the router via an 8 port switch. I tested the speeds by sending a 100MB file from my main desktop to my HTPC and monitoring the speed on both computers.

Testing to another computer connected directly to my router, I get 664Mbps (83MBps) average transfer speed with the exact same 100MB file, so I'm pretty certain it is not the 8 port switch causing the issue.

Let me know if there is any additional info I can provide to help solve the problem. Thanks again for looking!

Have you tried running them on the same breaker, like in the same room, just to ensure that it isn't a wiring issue in your house?

I haven't tried that, as even if that solves the issue, that doesn't help. The theater is in the same room as my office (one large open, finished basement), but when I built the theater, I put it on it's own breaker, my office, too, is on it's own breaker. So I need them to work where they are currently located.
