When returning a BBNA, you must mark the RMA number clearly on the outside of the package and include a copy of your original proof of purchase.
All customers located outside of the United States of America and Canada must pay for shipping and handling charges to return a defective BBNA.
The foregoing warranty shall be void and of no force or effect if (i) the BBNA is modified by any person other than Mushroom Networks or is installed, operated or maintained in any manner that is inconsistent with the terms in the user manual, (ii) the external BBNA housing is opened or tampered with or (iii) the BBNA is subject to any abuse, negligence or misuse, including without limitation physical or electrical abuse or stress, or exposure to water or fire.
