DHP-W306AV Powerline LED issue

Hi, I have the wireless DHP-W306AV and wired unit. I had a blackout and ever since the two units do not communicate. I cannot also connect directly using my PC to the wireless unit via either http://dlinkap or 192.168.0.50. I have tried everything, including resetting both the units, resetting my router and changing sockets etc but cant seem to find the issue. I have the wireless unit in my room and wired attached to the router in a separate room. I tried using the CD software to install the wireless unit again after resetting to factory default and it does everything except in the final stage when it tries to establish connection with other unit it says the Powerline LED failed and asks to try again. Can anyone please post direction on how to solve this issue.

SOURCE: Connection to internet doesnt work

Your ISP has specific requirements for connecting a router to their equipment. For some the default router settings connect successfully. Some Telcos require PPPoE logins to access the network, you may either be given a static IP address or be required to accept a dynamic IP address. You need to determine from your ISP often from a help website, a chat with a technician or phone support what those requirements are. Another possibility is failure to include DNS addresses either in the router or in the network adapter's IP configuration.

You should reset the unit back to factory and also install the latest firmware , if it not already updated previously. This unit was discontinued by the manufacturer back in 2004.

Here is the manufacturer's link to your unit

You probably have a fault in either the wiring of the house, the device itself, or one side of the adapter pair isn't functioning.

Here is the link to the D-Link website: http://www.dlink.com/products/default.aspx?pid=DHP-307AV&tab=3

I would suggest downloading and updating the firmware for the device(s). Also, because it is expanding the wireless reach of your router via electrical wiring, any interference may inhibit the correct functioning of the system. I would suggest you try connecting to your wireless without the powerlines active to ensure it is not a faulty router or wireless card. If it still does not work with the powerlines deactivated, you may need to look into getting a new router or wireless adapter.

Hope this helps.

Try reset the device and start a new configuration.It seems that your networwork have issues between the router and the powerlines.All need to be in the same network as per router configuration.Connect one adapter to your router and plug it into an available electrical outlet. Plug the second adpter into an available wall outlet and connect the other end to any device with an available Ethernet port such as a gaming console, set-top box, or computer.

pd: OS to use the adapters; Windows 2000, XP or Vista.

This can occur when the wireless adapter in the computer has trouble connecting to the wireless router. It may not get an IP address from the router or the wireless adapter encryption setting didn't get an the encryption authentication from the router.
In this case right click on the wireless adapter on the Task bar and click Repair. This will make the router re-issue an IP address and authenticate the adapter's encryption setting.

My download speed has been reduced from 20 Mbits to 2 Mbits after having plugged in a set of XE102. Why? Can I do something ? Regards Mogens Villy Møller Copenhagen Denmark


The top speed between the devices is 14 Mb/s, so they will never attain the 20Mb/s speed you had with you router / modem.

Netgear offers this FAQ for Powerline devices:

Problem: var js_3;function initPsDisplay(){js_3 = new PsDisplay({"info":{"controller_name":"PsDisplay","name":"PsDisplay_3","type":"FormField","w_id":3},"attrs":{"label":"","tabindex":"","field_name":"description","cf_id":"","table":"answers","highlight":0},"js":null});js_3.init();}YAHOO.util.Event.onDOMReady(initPsDisplay);
Workaround: var js_4;function initPsDisplay(){js_4 = new PsDisplay({"info":{"controller_name":"PsDisplay","name":"PsDisplay_4","type":"FormField","w_id":4},"attrs":{"label":"","tabindex":"","field_name":"solution","cf_id":"","table":"answers","highlight":0},"js":null});js_4.init();}YAHOO.util.Event.onDOMReady(initPsDisplay);
  • Powerline products work better when plugged into the wall without power strips, extension cords, surge protectors, or uninterruptable power supplies.
  • Passwords. Powerline products have both a network password, and a device password. A particular device's password, which is not changable, is printed on the Powerline product label. Once you have collected all your Powerline device passwords, use the encryption dialog box, as described on pages 9 and 12 of the XE102 User's Guide, to change the network password. (Without password protection, it is possible, although unlikely, for someone very nearby to access your network.)
  • If you changed the default network password, make sure that all the Powerline products use the same network password.
  • If you've moved a Powerline unit, or disconnected the cables, your other network devices may need about 5 minutes to refresh their information about the Powerline's current status.
  • If you have earlier Powerline products, switch to the encryption used by later products. (Early versions of XA601 and XE602 are known to have compatibility problems with newer models.)
  • To test whether a house's electrical wiring is contributing to Powerline problems, plug units in the same room. Examples of potential problems are:
    • Old fuse boxes.
    • Old wiring that does not meet modern wiring building codes.
  • Swap devices to isolate the problem to a particular Powerline unit.
  • Reset the Powerline adapters to the default settings using the utility.
  • Use all the same Powerline models for best connectivity. Also, software for one model may not work for another model. In particular, remote and advanced features may not work between Powerline manufacturers.
  • Powerline is not directed at businesses, however it may work in a business environment, anyhow. See Assessing Powerline for Business Environments. In some cases noise can be limited by placing line conditioners or surge protectors between the source of the noise, and the Powerline units. (Not between the units.) Consult a professional electrician to evaluate your electricity's noise and to suggest remedies.

Well, can I plug my powerline unit into a powerstrip anyway?


While *technically* the Powerline network can function when plugged into a low-end powerstrip, i.e. a powerstrip with a simple fuse, this *seriously* degrades performance, and can block the Powerline network completely.
