I have 2 of 5 Squeezebox/SLIMP3s on Phonex Neverwire 14s (the rest wireless).
They seem to have some trouble passing DHCP so I just use static IP. Even
though they are rated 14 Mbit they have trouble playing FLAC. I've never had
a problem with MP3. Apart from these issues everything is fine. Lack of a
standard in the powerline networking world is a bit troubling - so buy as
many as you'll need at the same time since different manufacturers don't
necessarily interoperate.
