Hello,
I believe you should be able to enter the configuration page of your router.

If yes, then follow these steps:
1.) When you get to the configuration page, select the place where the LAN has to be configured.
and Select the router to be DHCP, that is, to distribute IP-Adress dynamically to the network.

2.) After this, get a switch, an unmanaged switch (i.e just a normal switch), and connect your router to it using a straight-through cable, on one of the ports.
On the other ports, connect your PCs.

3.) On your PCs, go to the network adapter and right-click on it then go to properties, then inside the column, select TCP/IP Config and select the "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Do the same for the DNS Server too.

4.) Repeat the same thing for ALL other systems connected to the Switch.

5.) Now, after all these, create a network connection setup and give them all the same Workgroup.
Remember to select that "All the systems connect directly through a Switch" when you are setting it up.

6.) Next, restart your systems.

This should make your system ethernet adapter connect to your router automatically.

In case you are using Vista, what you just need to do after Step 3 is to right-click on your "my computer " icon, then properties, then Advanced System settings, Then click on Computer name, Then select Change.

On this "Change" page, you can just type the name of your workgroup and select OK, then restart your system.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem.

Hope it helps.

Goodluck

Asus ac68u router is not working with my powerline adapter. The router is brand new and less than a year old. The powerline adapter are tp link 500mpbs model tl-pa411. I have tried directly connecting


HAVE YOU DONE A VOLTAGE CHECK ON THE ADAPTER? IF NOT, READ WHAT THE VOLTAGE ADAPTER OUTPUT IS. IF THE MEASUREMENT IS DIFFERENT OR DON'T GET A READING AT ALL IT MEANS YOU HAVE AN OPEN CIRCUIT ON THE ADAPTER. MOSTLY MOST WIRES BREAK UNSEEN INSIDE THE PLASTIC INSULATOR NEAR THE PLUG END OR NEAR THE ADAPTER END, WHERE THEY BEND MOST.

Using belkin gigabit powerline adapter with a wirless router


Try to configure the 2 routers to work with one another when they are next to each other using standard ;an cable. Once working the powerline should work fine. If you try to configure them when they are apart you have 2 things that could be causing problems to take out the powerline to begin with, then when they are working close, move them apart

Connected the Powerline adapters to my network, 1 into my Sky D-Link Wireless ADSL Router and one into the back of my PC. The powerlines can see each other but my PC doesn't get network connectivity.


This is the main disadvantage of Power-line devices.
1. Well firstly you need to make sure that the activity lights are ON on both the Power line adapters. 2. Don't use any Surge Protector or Extension cable, just directly to the wall. 3. Try in the same room first. 4. Power line devices works well where wall sockets are interlinked with common wiring as it is the mode of data transfer.
You can just power cycle the device, there is nothing much you can do about this. If its new device, get it replaced

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.
