    Diagnosing dropouts







    Not sure what you mean by wall-warts, but each outlet hosting a powerline adapter also hosts a powerstrip to which are connected (in one case), my networking equipment - linksys router, linksys WAP54G, cable modem, Vonage VOIP, linksys powerline bridge - and (in the other case) some av equipment - tv, tivo,amp, dvd player and cable box.  It's been running fine like this for weeks until today.  One more interesting point - the sb is currently reporting it can't find slim, but slim is running AND I can ping the sb over that link.

    wall warts are those fist-sized power adapter plugs, typicall poorly
    engineered and very noisy. I'll bet that the powerline adapter
    instructions probably say not to set it up on a powerstrip with all that
    gear

    yup, first item in the FAQ:
