Other Thoughts:

These are very simple devices, largely plug and play. They all come with a default encryption key though, so that should be changed during setup. The manual details the process - press and hold sync button until PWR LED starts flashing, do the same to any other units within 2 minutes. The software utility lets you do this as well. The utility also lets you see connected adapters and their link quality and even update their firmware. 8 devices can be connected into one network.

The devices have a 100 Mbps full duplex interface (100 up, 100 down = 200).

I recently updated a lot of wiring and our breaker box so I have a good mix of old and new wiring.

I ran some testing with LAN Speed Test using a packet size of 10 MB over 100 packets.

Testing over new 12ga wiring:
Minimum upload - 50.98.79 Mbps
Minimum download - 32.84 Mbps
Maximum upload - 55.79 Mbps
Maximum download - 46.21 Mbps
Average upload - 53.79 Mbps
Average download - 42.67 Mbps

New and old (knob and tube) mix, with power strip:
Minimum upload - 33.13 Mbps
Minimum download - 26.80 Mbps
Maximum upload - 42.57 Mbps
Maximum download - 36.09 Mbps
Average upload - 40.87 Mbps
Average download - 30.90 Mbps
