    How's the connection stability on these things?

    From first hand experience with another vendors AV1200 solution - connection dropouts are an ongoing problem with some vendors, even those using QCA solutions - recent firmware updates have helped, but they still have issues...

    Does G.hn, and specifically the Arris solution perform better in this regards?

    I did not perform any long-term testing.

    Interesting to see how their wireless extender over G.hn works....as that's what I'd like to see expand as a home networking package. The ease of increasing the wireless coverage in larger homes, using a "simple/pre-packaged all in one solution" for home users. The ability of an end residential user purchasing 1x single product...that is easy to setup for them, without having to mix-match various products, convert wireless routers to APs, mix in moca or other 3rd party bridges...just seems like a market demand waiting for product to fill it.
