Thanks for your reply.. I'm considering a switch to Gen 5 , it appears some have had problems with speeds , how is your system working? What did you have to pay to get it operating? Which did you choose? lease or buy ?

 

My Gen 4 isn't grounded to a stake, is this a new installation requirement?


My speeds have been fairly consistent with Gen5 - http://testmy.net/quickstats/C0RR0SIVE  Set the Identifier to 5 and you will get a list of my Gen5 test results over a 24 hour period of time.
I can't comment on anything else though...

Grounding has been a requirement since the beginning.
