My System Specs

Default

Well the speed reported by their little config tool is way exaggerated. I didn't even use the utility at first and only installed it to update the firmware. The utility shows the machine being connected at 288Mbps, where through my testing I can tell you that is not the real world case. When it comes to file transfers I am getting around 130Mbps.

Oh and upgrading the firmware on mine really didn't seem to make much of a difference, at least what I could tell.

Bit sure, I know I read it somewhere when reading reviews on all shots of powerline products. The idea is because the less possible interference the better and having something right in the same plug is a good way to introduce interference right off the start.
