XE102 not connecting to ethernet

I have an XE102 hooked to aWGX102 which has worked well for years. Last night, I had no internet connection but a strong signal. I found the Ethernet light on the router was out and the bottom Ethernet light on the XE102 was also out. Internet through another port is fine. Unplugged, replugged, changed cables, changed plug. Still only top 2 lights. Does this mean the XE102 is now history?
Also if it needs replacing, does it have to be a XE102 to connect with the WGX102 or will an XE104 connect? Thank you very much.

SOURCE: Netgear WGX102 Powerline HomePlug wireless ethernet bridge dead

Ditto. On my WGX102, the power light and the wifi signal light are OUT. Resetting does not bring them on again.

Completely dead?

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.

Netgear ethernet xe102


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.
