You have to be on the same transformer leg Xmitter and reciver try moving the input device to a diffeent outlet. or use one of the ethernet only units to see if you have etherne tconnectivity, also there is a pricatical distance limitation of about 600 feet. are you in that range.

Hi, why isn't it possible to have the devices linked over a multiway connector?

It is, but due to the electrical requirements of Ethernet, it's not as simple as having one of those telephone Y-connectors. The multiple connector is called an ethernet switch, and can be had for $20-30.

Netgear wall plug XE102 stops working when downloading

It seems to be an issue either with the powerline adapters or the electric line. Swap the devices and check if it helps. Also, disable encryption utility if being used

Try connectig both teh devices in the same room and check the download speed

I purchased two netgear wall plugged bridge XE102. They worked fine for one month. Now I get messages on my computer do not detect homeplug adapter. On my TV it say's is not hooked to the internet. What is...

I had the exact same problem those branded ones at our shop where one just stopped working all together.
THeres a couple of things to rule out so you can try some steps to figure it out.
Try changing the port on the router where the first plug is hooked into, if you can, try a direct connection without the plugs aswell. Also, try inserting the plugs in different outlets and see if anything has changed. If they're only a month old, they are still under warranty and you could get them replaced either through ytour place of purchase or from netgear aswell.

Trouble installing XE102 Powerline

there wasn't actually any problem with the device. For these bridges to work, you need to be on the same phase of the wiring. If the devices are on different phases then they can't communicate. But I still couldn't get the encryption to work. Netgear support doesn't seemed to be bothered with that...they told me to ignore it.
