Unit never comes out of sleep and you cannot upgrade firmware from OSX
29 November 2012
Summary: After 24 months, I upgraded them from 2 to 3 stars. For some reason, since moving, they do not sleep as much, which was my main complaint. I needed some networking in my apartment and because AT&T had a lock on cable in the building and included free WiFi with their vDSL modems, the WiFi spectrum...
Summary: Very easy installation, but throughput isn't quite what I expected with my home's wiring. 1970s wiring isn't fantastic. It's still a HUGE improvement over my wireless connection though. I'd recommend this for my friends, especially those with newer homes.
Outside of limitations of your home wiring, this product seems to be well optimized

Summary: I tested this product with various configurations and it outperformed the simpler version. My problem was maybe because of the aging home wiring, so I never saw the high bandwidth. Pretty much limited to 64mb/s on this one, versus 45 mb/s with the simpler setup.
Summary: I have several 200 units. Some would work with this 500 unit others will not. Can't figure it out. Can't really see any speed increase with this 500 setup. A bit disappointed. It works, but not much faster.
