Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

These units show up on sale at Fry's Electronics from time to time.  I
bought some yesterday to try out after doing some research on the
Internet.  Not much in the way of information.  I bought two units.
Tested them.  They did not work.

I upgraded the firmware to rev 1.6 on both units.  Tried them, no

I moved both units in to the same room, tested, and the units seem to
be working.  If you visit and search for the
text string AIRLINK101 POWERLINE, you will find a nice little
explanation of home wiring and why you may or may not be able to use
these units in your house.  As far as I can tell, results are random.
I'm going to do some more testing later, but for now, I can't use the
units to connect my downstairs network to my upstairs computing
