So in looking for a replacement, the Devolo brand was no longer on my preferred-supplier list.
Instead, I installed TP-Link products. Excellent, even better (although that's not a like-for-like opinion), far more powerful and with more bandwidth. Noticeably different in reach and speed especially the wifi connectivity.
I'd recommend this brand and this model if you're looking at powerline networking. And great deals on Amazon.
David was taken in tragic circumstances, and his loss is felt by many people: family, friends and colleagues from the past. RIP, Dave.
