Question about Powerline Ethernet Network Adapter

Powerline Adapters and Streaming Movies

I have 200 mbps powerline adapters connecting my desktop in a second floor office to my WD TV Live in the first floor family room. Movies stored on a large hard external drive attached the desktop on 2nd floor play poorly (seize up). The 200 mbps powerline adpaters should easily handle even HD movies (movie files that seize up range from 750 MB to 10 GB for a ~2hr film). Where could the problems be?

this is usually caused by dirty power, have you installed cfl light bulbs recently?
you might also check to see if any existing full fluorescent lights produce a buzzing noise.

How do i fix after modem reset


Basically, you unplug all of the Netgear Xe104 units, wait a minute, then plug the one nearest to the Router back into a wall socket first. Wait a few seconds then plug in a second Xe104 and give it a minute to "talk" to the first unit. Then plug other Xe104's in one at a time. Below you'll find the official troubleshooting steps which you should read carefully if the basic steps above do not resolve the problem.
Also, i should tell you that Powerline adapters such as yours have improved greatly in the last few years, and you can buy a pair of new ones that are very, very much faster than yours for a very modest cost. For example, TP-LINK TL-PA4010KIT
or NETGEAR Powerline 500 1-Port Starter Kit (XAVB5201) or
ZyXEL PLA4225 4-Port 500 Mbps Powerline Gigabit

Power Light Not On Make sure that, if power to the AC power outlet is controlled by a wall switch, the wall switch is in the on position. Verify that the wall socket is live by disconnecting the XE104 85 Mbps Wall-Plugged Ethernet Switch and plugging in some other electrical product, such as a lamp or a hairdryer. If the error persists and you have confirmed the power outlet you are using is live, you have a hardware problem and should contact technical support.
HomePlug Light Not On If the power light is on but the HomePlug light is not, check the following: • Make sure that power is being provided to more than one PowerLine device. Another PowerLine device must be installed for successful communication across the PowerLine. • Verify that the network password is the same on all devices in the PowerLine network.
Ethernet Light is Off • Make sure that the Ethernet cable is plugged in properly at both ends. • Be sure you are using the correct cable on the router that the first XE104 is connected to. When connecting the router's Internet port to a cable or DSL modem, use the cable that was supplied with the cable or DSL modem. This cable could be a standard straight-through Ethernet cable or an Ethernet crossover cable. • On attached Ethernet device or network adapter card, check that the Link light is

I have a network with one desktop which is always on, one Sony Bravia TV and one laptop. All connected via D-Link powerlines (306/307 AV). My laptop connection is problematic. When the laptop restarts,...


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 thing doesn't work. When moving the remote unit downstairs, it doesn't connect to the network.


The powerline modems are affected by the other connected equipment in your house and the wiring phases.

For BOTH modems try the following first:

-Connect the modems directly to the wall socket, don't use an extension lead.

-If you have a surge protecting extension block plugged in in the next/adjacent socket, try plugging it in on a different mains socket.

If this does not work, you may want to think again about routing an Ethernet cable between floors.
Higher performance and lower cost.
