I have three numbers of Internet Bridge which upgraded to SmartHub, one of them I assume is older unit which comes with 110V only power adapter and the other two come with 110V/220V power adapter.

The unit with 110V power adapter give me less issue after the firmware upgrade which works correctly.

The other two units that comes with 110V/220V power adapter with different issue.

One of the unit kept on lost connection both both 5 in 1 and a tower sensor.

The other unit after power cycle both LED will stay ON but the LAN connector's LEDs will stay OFF.

I was told that the unit only support 10Mbps half duplex (one way traffic), I assume the server push the firmware to the unit but due to half duplex, the server will wait for the end of upgrade information from the unit which did not happen.

The device is half-duplex, but that is something that occurs at such a low networking level that the servers are not aware of it.  It has no bearing on the upgrade process.

OK.  So....    I'm not following what you're trying to say.

The power adapters also have nothing to do with the firmware update.   They simply convert the AC line voltage into a DC voltage the hardware can handle.

I wonder if there are different in hardware design of the unit itself.

Not in the general design.  Perhaps specific components are different, but functionally all bridges are equivalent from a usage standpoint.
