Question about Powerline Ethernet Network Adapter

1 Answer

Turned my ethernet adapter off on the upstairs one and back on to find that there is no green lights anymore, just a red light on status. Then did the same with the downstairs one and they both have a red light on status! The upstairs one connects to my Xbox so i'm unable to use Xbox live. Any help?

Hi,
Powerline adapters are generally not durable. You can try to reset the power adapter by pressing the reset button located on the device itself. If it still gives you a red light than call the manufacture and get it replaced.

Wont stop flashing green and I can not connect to xbox live yet I used to be able to Any Help Thanks, Paul


IF The LIGHT IS FLASHING GREEN then there is something wrong with your wireless network
Check your network settings and Retry connecting



Check the adapter's status light loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); The adapter's status light can tell you a lot about the state that the adapter is in. Here's what the different lights mean:
  • Steady green light: The adapter is connected to a wireless router, gateway, or access point. The adapter is ready to use.

  • Steady red light: The adapter is not recognized. Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the Xbox 360 console.
  • Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless network.
  • Flashing red light: There is a problem. The adapter might be experiencing a hardware failure. Contact Xbox support at http://www.xbox.com/support/contact (http://www.xbox.com/support/contact) .
  • No light: The adapter is not receiving power. Unplug the USB connector and plug it in again. Still no light? Try plugging the adapter into a USB port on the front of the console

I have 2 comtrend dh-10pf powerline adapters. one of the adapters status is a red flashing light and the AP light and the Ethernet light are blank. the second powerline adapter has a solid red status...


Hi,
To start you need to factory reset both adapters,
plug them both into a wall socket next to each other, press the config/f reset button, hold in until ap light goes off, repeat on the other one.
Now you should have a red status light on both.
Press the config/f reset button on one for about 5 seconds, wait until ap light stays on, this one is now your access point (ap) that should be plugged in to your router when you have finished config.
Now press the ap adapter config button again for about 5 seconds until ap light flashes, then press the config button on the other adapter until ap light flashes, wait until they both stop flashing, wait a few seconds, the status light on both adapters should be green, and one adapter should have an amber ap light.
Hope this helps.

Unplug All External Devices Unplug the AC Adapter From the Wall Outlet. Disconnect the AC Adapter From the Laptop Reseated the power cable to the adapter.
Remove the Battery Connect the AC Adapter Directly to a Known Good Outlet, But Not to the Computer Verify That the AC Power Adapter Has a Solid Green or Blue Light.
The AC adapter status light is solid green. The AC adapter status light is solid green.Press the Power Button and Check for POST.

PROBLEMS WITH MODEM


well.as far as i know, it really depends with what red light it is.if you're pertaining to the RED light for power, then it's an issue with your power adapter.make sure it's getting the right volts from your outlet.if this is already done, try to plug the modem in different outlets esp. your kitchen and bathroom outlets. if same thing occur,your modem might be defective.

for ethernet light, if it is red, just make sure that your cable is properly plugged in, if yes, unplug the other end of it from the back of your computer and plug it on the other port of your modem,(what we're trying to do here is making sure that your cable is working fine)..the ethernet light must be green if it's ok but if it wont change,replace the cable with a new internet cable. this should solve the prob.

if the DSL/broadband link light is red,there might be an outage on your area. most of the time, if this is red, the next light wont lit or red as well.

hope this is helpful.
