It contains the following sections: • Before You Start • Extend Your Wired Network by Plug & Play • Secure Your Powerline Network by Pairing • Add Another Powerline Adapter • Manage Your Powerline Network via tpPLC Utility Chapter 2 Use Your Powerline Adapter 2. 1. Before You Start Powerline adapters work in pairs. You should have at least two powerline products to build a powerline network. To optimize your network performance, please follow these principles: • All powerline adapters should be on the same electrical wiring system. • Avoid plugging in powerline adapters and high-powered household devices (such as washing machines and refrigerators) close to one another. • Plug the powerline adapter directly into a wall outlet. Do not plug the powerline adapter into a power strip, extension cord, or surge protector. Wall Outlet Power Strip 6 Chapter 2 Use Your Powerline Adapter 2. 2. Extend Your Wired Network by Plug & Play I want to: Use two powerline adapters to set up a new powerline network in my house. For example, I have a router in my house, but there are not enough LAN ports for all my wired devices. I don’t want complex and expensive cabling. People told me that I can solve this problem with two powerline adapters. How can I do that? 1. Connect one of the powerline adapters to an available LAN port of the router using an Ethernet cable. 2. Plug the powerline adapter into a wall outlet. 3. Plug the other powerline adapter into a wall outlet on the same electrical circuit. Wait until the powerline LED turns on. Note: If the Powerilne LED is red or off, refer to Q2. What should I do if the Powerline LED is red or off? for detailed information. 4. Connect your wired device, such as a computer or game console, to the powerline adapter via an Ethernet cable. Wait until the Powerline LED turns on. 1000Mbps Adapter 3 1000Mbps Adapter 2 Powerline

Done! Now enjoy the internet! 7 Chapter 2 Use Your Powerline Adapter 2. 3. Secure Your Powerline Network by Pairing All powerline adapters share some common factory settings, and can communicate with one another. If you want your powerline adpaters to communicate only with your own powerline adapters, you should pair them. Thus a secured powerline network is formed and other powerline adapters can no longer join your powerline network without being paired. Note: You can only pair two devices at a time. I want to: Secure my powerline network and prevent other powerline devices from being added to my network. For example, I’ve extended my network using the Plug & Play method. Now I want to secure my network. How can I do that? 1. Verify all powerline devices’ Power LEDs are solid on. Tips: We recommend that you plug in your powerline devices near each other, or as close to each other as possible when pairing. Your settings will not be affected. The devices can be relocated to where they are needed once pairing is complete. 2. Press the Pair button on one of the powerline devices for 1 second. Its Power LED starts blinking. 3. Within two minutes, press the Pair button on another powerline adapter for 1 second. Its Power LED starts blinking. When the Powerline LED turns on, the pairing process is complete.

Done! Enjoy your secure powerline network! 8 Chapter 2 Use Your Powerline Adapter 2. 4. Add Another Powerline Adapter I want to: Add a new powerline adapter into the existing powerline network to extend my network. For example, I’ve already set up a powerline network using powerline devices, but the network does not reach everywhere I need it to. I purchased another one to further extend my network. How can I do that? 1. Plug the new powerline adapter into a wall outlet near one of the existing powerline devices. Powerline r i a P 1000Mbps 1000Mbps 1000Mbps 2. Wait for a minute, and check whether the Powerline LED turns on. If it’s on, skip to step 3. If it’s not, continue with step 2 to pair the new powerline adapter into the secured powerline network. a . Press the Pair button on one of the existing powerline devices for 1 second. Its Power LED starts blinking. b . Within two minutes, press the Pair button on the new powerline adapter for 1 second. Its Power LED starts blinking. When the Powerline LED turns on, the pairing process is complete. Blinking Blinking On r r i i a a within 2 minutes P P 6

3. Relocate the new powerline adapter to the place where wired internet access is needed. 9 Chapter 2 Use Your Powerline Adapter Done! Enjoy the internet through your extended network! 2. 5. Manage Your Powerline Network via tpPLC Utility The tpPLC utility enables you to view and manage your TP-Link powerline network. Its bold and intuitive interface helps you easily configure each powerline device. You can find the utility and its user guide on the product support page at tp-link.com. 10 FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) Q1. How do I reset my powerline adapter? With the powerline adapter plugged into the wall socket, press and hold its Pair button for more than 6 seconds until the Power LED goes off momentarily and comes back on. Q2. What should I do if the Powerline LED is red or off? If the powerline LED is red: • The powerline adapter is in a location with a poor signal strength. Try another wall socket. If the powerline LED is off: • Try another wall socket and make sure all powerline devices are on the same electrical circuit. • Try to set up a powerline network by pairing. Refer to the section above Secure Your Powerline Network by Pairing for instructions. • If the problem persists, contact our Technical Support. Q3. How to troubleshoot if there is no internet connection via my powerline network? • Make sure all powerline devices are on the same electrical circuit. • Make sure the Powerline LEDs are lit on all of your powerline devices. If they are not, pair all powerline devices according to Secure Your Powerline Network by Pairing. • Make sure all devices are correctly and securely connected. • Verify that you have an internet connection by connecting your computer directly to the modem or the router. Q4. What can I do if a successfully-paired powerline device does not reconnect after it has been moved to a new location ? • Try another socket on the same electrical circuit. • Try to pair it again, and make sure the Powerline LED is on. • Check for possible interference due to washing machines, air conditioners or other household appliances. Some powerline devices have an integrated electrical socket. You can plug appliances into this socket to remove the electrical noise originating from them, using a power strip if necessary. 11 COPYRIGHT & TRADEMARKS Specifications are subject to change without notice. is a registered trademark of TP-Link Technologies Co., Ltd.
