Question about Belkin F5D4074 Network Adapter

1 Answer

I have 4 Belkin Powerline adapters, two F5D4074 and two F5D4072. On Belkin website they are declared compatible, but I can't manage to transfer the password between the 72 and the 74, with the result that they talk in pairs, but not together. What I'd like to achieve is using only 3 of them to connect two devices and one router, but how do I set the password to be the same amongst all? Thanks.

There are two standards for powerline: HomePlug 1.0, which has a maximum link speed of 85Mbps and HomePlug AV, which has a maximum link speed of 200Mbps. You can use the two standards within the same building, but they are not compatible with each other.

HomePlug 1.0 - F5D4050, F5D4070. Powerline Turbo (F5D4071, F5D4073)

HomePlug AV - Powerline AV (F5D4072 + F5D4074 + F5D4077 + F5D4081). Powerline AV+ (F5D4075 + F5D4079) + Powerline HD (F5D4076 + F5D4078) and Powerline HD500 (F5D4085)

Also try to rest the adapters and reconfigure them again.

SOURCE: I have 4 Belkin Powerline

I too have the same configuration. I reset all the boxes to their factory settings and connected them to one another on a single 4 gang extension lead (not a surge protected one)
I could get their passwords to pair up as the middle led would indicate. But I could not get the data to freely flow from an old device to a new one!
One step forward...

I have two Belkin powerline adaptors 200mbps type


Your hard disk is failing and should be replaced. Have you tried to press F1 when you get the message? If this doesn't help try to enter the bios and disable S.M.A.R.T.
Your first goal is to save the data so please do that before it's too late.

Trouble expanding my Belkin Powerline network


F5D4075 uses Homeplug AV standard and F5D4071 used Home plug 1.0 Turbo. Both are not compatible to each other. So if you form a network, you have to form with the same standard.
Secondly, You need just one Powerline adapter on the router and you can have 2 or 3 adapter connected to 1 computer each and all these computers can connect to the 1 adapter on the router. You do not have to use it in pairs
