I'm thinking since my computer and router are located in one of the bedrooms I use as my office which have the AFCI circuits if that is what is screwing up my transmission rates. I really wish I could stream high bitrate stuff but unless my router is the culprit, I think the AFCI circuits are going to limit what I can stream.
I don't think mine are AFCI.... I get around 75-80 Mbps, which is plenty fast for any 1080P stuff (the maximum BR spec is 54Mbps)...and about 2-3 times as fast as most wireless-n solutions deliver for sustained transfer rates.
Have you tried any other outlets though? I did have to move the upstairs unit to a different wall socket (in another bedroom- but not a big deal as it was on the other side of the same wall, so a very short ethernet run from router to outlet worked either way)... the first outlet I tried upstairs only ever got the amber light (mid-grade signal speed lightl) rather than the green (good signal speed light).
