* The HomePlug AV network data rate is up to 200Mbps. Actual throughput of the PLE300 is limited to 100Mbps by the Ethernet 10/100 specification, and
will vary depending on network traffic and environmental conditions such as building wiring type and routing.
Maximum performance for the Powerline Network Adapter is derived from HomePlug Powerline Alliance HomePlug AV specification. Actual performance
can vary, including lower powerline network capacity and data throughput rate. Performance depends on many factors, conditions and variables, including
volume of network traffic, home wiring construction, operating system used, mix of networking products used, interference from other electrical devices,
age of home wiring, wireline range and coverage as determined by wiring route or path between devices and other adverse conditions.
Specifications are subject to change without notice.
