Question about Belkin F5D4074 Network Adapter

1 Answer

I have had a pair of Belkin Powerlive AV adapters (F5D4072) for a while now and they work really well across my house between two routers. I recently bought a 2nd pair of the newer F5D4074 adapters (old model is discontinued ? and the new ones are said to be compatible anyway). I can get them all to 'pair up' with their encryption codes when using an older one as a 'master' but not always successful with a new one acting as the main key-setter. In either case I am having difficulty getting the data to pass between an old and new adapter (or vice versa). Two new and two old ones work happily with each other as compatible pairs, but not across the model range - I have tried for many hours resetting and generating new keys etc in a fairly controlled environment - using a 4 gang non-surge socket to 'bridge' them together. I did manage to get data to initially pass (briefly) just after 'powering up' one of the mixed pairs, but after a short while (not an idle time) this connection appears to become 'broken' and is not sustainable. The middle led of 3 is illuminated to show a connection is formed but this does not seem to guarantee the routing of data. Does anyone have any ideas how to get Belkin F5D4072 and F5D4074s to work as a set? (One to be connected to the internet router and the other 3 servicing: 2 PCs and a TV)

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)

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!

I have a belkin wireless G+ router work with a power link adapter?

Just use the unused one to create an access point.To do so you need to login on the web UI of the router and change to an access point instead of a infrastructure.

I have just bought Belkin Powerline AV starter kit. I have a Belkin N1 Wireless Modem Router connected through a Carrier PoE adapter. I have tried to connect my Sony TV and PS3 through the powerline units...

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.

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

D-Link wireless router and Belkin Wireless G USB Network adapter

Set your wireless network as a preferred network and to automatically connect to it. Also set it at the top of the list so that it takes precedence. If you continue to get conflicts, change the channel of the router.
