comment Diagnosing noisy power lines
With your suggestion and a little searching I found this article, which is a pretty thorough treatment of the problem.

comment Diagnosing noisy power lines
That's an interesting thought. Would a bad switch/outlet/etc really contribute to powerline noise in this fashion? I guess I need to see if I still have that old radio in the basement...

comment How do I replace an A/C diffuser attached to flex duct?
That turned out to be exactly the right thing...in fact, these seem to be a slightly newer version of what was already there. Thanks!

comment How do I replace an A/C diffuser attached to flex duct?
Possibly. I will try to add one later this evening. I was assuming that this was a fairly standard way of terminating flex duct.

comment What are some tools for diagnosing powerline networking problems?
"Low signal" or "no signal" probably describes the problem (the devices I'm using don't actually provide a signal strength indicator. The netgear devices have a "connection speed" indicator that I imagine is somewhat equivalent).

comment What are some tools for diagnosing powerline networking problems?
I have tried most of that...on the other hand, we do have a bunch of CF lights, although that didn't appear to affect the problem one way or the other when I was trying to get the TED5000 working. I may have to repeat the whole turning-everything-off test this weekend with the powerline devices. I guess my real question is, other than plugging in an oscilloscope (which I don't own), are there any tools that would provide some sort of metrics about the noise level on the circuits?

comment What are some tools for diagnosing powerline networking problems?
The two powerline devices are on the same phase. The solution to the TED5000 was using the outlet that was only a few inches from the panel (communicating with the device attached to both phases in the panel), so really the minimum possible length of travel.
