    Powerline  

Q1: What is Powerline Networking?

The Powerline device can be easily networked together through the existing power connection.Powerline Networking doesn't require any new wires.This high-speed powerline communications technology now provides a 200 Mbps data rate over existing powerlines in the home.

    Power Over Ehternet
    Print Server
    Wireless


Q2: What is the maximum wire length that powerline technology can communicate over?

The largest home tested exceeded 7000 square feet and powerline technology had no problems communicating between nodes separated by the maximum distance.

Q3: What is the Powerline’s security?

Powerline products use 56-bit DES/128-bit AES security technology to ensure network separation between homes.


Q4: What happens if powerline characteristics change during a communications session, like when a hair dryer is turned on?

If the powerline characteristics degrade during a session, Powerline product will sense the change and automatically adapt to provide the most reliable connection.When normal conditions return, it resets to its original configuration.


Q5: What device will to interfere with communication quality ?

Such as halogen lights, vacuum cleaners, blenders, hair dryers, brush motors, fluorescent ,switching power suppliers, dimmer switchs.

Q6: Does Powerline work across different electrical phases? Does it pass through electrical meters?

Yes, but it is recommended to use a phase coupler device to connect the phases and to improve data transfer possibility. If the wirings of the two phases are near each other, it should work without the coupler. Powerline signals generally pass through electrical meters. Of course, there may be meters which will disable Powerline communication. We recommend to test the connectivity with Diagnostics Kit.

Q7: It seems somewhere on the way between two Powerline devices the signal is lost.

Make sure there is no transformer on the way between the devices. Powerline signal cannot pass through a transformer. You will have to bypass it, using some other kind of connection.For example you can connect the two segments on the opposite sides of the transformer with ethernet cable (2 Powerline Ethernet Adapters), or with Wireless 2 Powerline Access Points.

Q8: What is the maximum distance of two devices in a Powerline Network?

We recommend using distances up to 200 meters. Under ideal conditions it is possible to reach longer distances. This depends on the type of cable and the quality of the joints. Diagnostics Kit will help you find out the maximal distance between the most distant outlets, so that you still reach sufficient throughput.
 
Q9: How many adapters can we have in a Powerline network segment?

You can use the "Clone MAC Address" function.The Host Name is optional, but may be required by some Service Providers. The default AC address is set to the WAN's physical interface on the Broadband Router. If the Service Provider requires the host name, using the "Clone MAC Address" button to copy the MAC address of the Network Interface Card
