One of the problems with info concerning Entry Level Network hardware is
that their is No adequate disclose about what the quoted "Speed" numbers
actually mean.
The numbers usually represent the Speed of the core chipset of the Network
device, it does not represent the real world performance that as it is
affected by the rest of the hardware, the OS, the software, and in cases of
Wireless and Power Line, the environmental effects of the medium (I.e signal
in the air, and the Power Lines per-se).
The actual PowerLine Network Speed is greatly reduced by the need for signal
compression, security, and by the compensation for spikes and instabilities
in the specific power line system thta the adaptors are plugged into.
"Speed" (Bandwidth) expectation of Ethernet Home Networks using Windows -
What the Signal Strength Bars mean in Wireless hardware? -
