With the 2413 PLM and 2443 Hardware V2 Access Points.

They tried a few value and VDC rated capacitors. C7 and C13 in the unregulated 12VDC. Where originally 10uF/35V.
As of the V2.4 they are now 100uF/50V and a different serial board with a better ESD rated serial chip and some protective networks on the Serial Port pins to the outside world.

They had a $29.99 sale on the 2413S/2413U PLM last week and from all the folks receiving them. The serial version is now V2.5. The USB version may also be V2.5 now. My 2413S from the sale should be here next Tuesday. Needles to say it will be opened and observed when it gets here.

The 2450 I/OLinc also as had a few capacitor updates. Original C7 was 10uF/25V very close to the supply output voltage.
V1.8 was updated to a 10uF/50V. V2.3 that latest I have. C7 is now a 230uF/50V

The 2413 PLM and I/OLinc have a small switching power supply and I don't think all the band aid fixes may have used capacitors rated for a switching power supply.

Seems like if they just spent a penny or two more and used caps with a higher WVDC they'd a avoid a lot problems.  :'
They did avoid problems for themselves. They bought caps that would outlast (barely) the one year warranty.  -:)

Had a similar problem with my Stargate last week. It couldn't control the alarm panel or the shade controller which are both connected to serial ports.  Common to those two ports is a single MAXIM 232 chip which JDS Technologies had the foresight install in sockets.  Popped in a new one and back in business.  I've had a number of devices where caps in the power supply failed.  The old ReplayTV's had that problem as well as the Insteon Hub and the Insteon 2413 PLM.  Seems like if they just spent a penny or two more and used caps with a higher WVDC they'd a avoid a lot problems.  :'

but I'm planning to do the rim-to-rim again in a few weeks.  I did it two years ago camping one night at the bottom, but this time I'm planning to do it in one day.
You must be buying that "Texas Super Food" stuff advertised on the radio. <wink> My idea of strenuous exercise is the treadmill set to 3.8 mph.  rofl
Be safe.

Everything gets old and starts to deteriorate. even us.....sigh.

Yeah, I'm getting old too, but I'm planning to do the rim-to-rim again in a few weeks.  I did it two years ago camping one night at the bottom, but this time I'm planning to do it in one day.

Thank you for the information.

Electrolytic Capacitors seem to frequently cause issues. Changing capacitors in many of my failing devices has fixed most of them.

Yes, my router see the WM100.
OK then, when you use the WM100 app to turn on a device, does the WM100 LED blink orange, as in trying to send the command? If not look for a Wifi router problem, if so, look for a X10 transmission problem (is the WM100 plugged in to same circuit as the CM15A which DOES work?). I have no clue about Fresh Tomato other than I like them. Unless another board member uses the same app, you may have to troubleshoot yourself.
