Pros: These *are* indeed interoperable with the older units
Cons: none so far - they work fine
Overall Review: After more messing with the configuration program, I was able to get the older units to communicate. I apologize for jumping the gun. User error :^(
Pros: The two units in the kit communicate with each other just fine.
Cons: Purchased this kit primarily because I have 4 older ZyXel homeplug adapters, the 200Mbps ones, and the information on the product claimed:
"Backwards compatible with 500Mbps and 200Mbps powerline adapters"
THEY ARE NOT COMPATIBLE!!!
I tried with and without encryption - the old and new units do not see each other.
