• Do not connect the Powerline devices to an extension cord, surge protector or power strip, as this will prevent it work
Correctly or reduce network performance.
• Avoid using the Powerline devices into an electrical outlet located near a device that uses a lot of energy, such as a washer, dryer or refrigerator. This could prevent the adapter to function properly or have a negative impact on network performance.

3. On the wireless unit (the largest with four lights) press and hold the reset hole with a paper clip for 10 seconds

4. Check that the house-shaped light is lit green on both products. Again, this indicates the power level communication between the two units.

5. Scan now for wireless networks from your computer
