Quick Setup Button
The button is use to setup the PLC to join into the PowerLine network
group quickly.
Resetting the network ID
Press the Quick Setup button until all LEDs extinguish (more than
10 seconds), the PLC will reset the network ID setting and generate
a random network ID. Always reset the network ID before
pairing the PLC.
Pairing the PLC
When new PLC adapters want to join to existing PowerLine Network,
press the Quick Setup button on any exist PLC adapter and press
the new PLC adapter’s Quick Setup button within three seconds at
the same time, the Power LED will start blinking, it means the PLC
adapters goes to pairing process, when finished the pairing, the
Power LED will be steady on.
INSTALLATION

Connecting to network
You can connect the 200M HomePlug® AV to Fast Ethernet Adapter
directly to the PC’s network adapter, switch, or any other Ethernet
enabled device.
Note: The Ethernet port on the Adapter supports 10/100M Auto-MDI/MDIX
function, you can use a straight-through or a crossover Ethernet cable when
connecting to another Ethernet enabled device.)

Configuration Utility
The HomePlug AV Utility for Windows OS enables the users to
identify PLC devices on the power line network, measures data rate
performance, ensures privacy and performs diagnostics by setting
user defined secure power line networks.
Install Configuration Utility
Insert the HomePlug AV utility CD into your CD-ROM drive and the
Auto-run program will appear. Alternatively this can also be done
manually by double clicking the autorun.exe file on the CD.
Click the “Enter” on the menu to open the HomePlug AV Utility, the
install wizard will begin the software installation. Follow the install
wizard instructions completed the HomePlug AV Utility install.

Using the HomePlug AV Utility
To start the HomePlug AV Utility, double click the icon
desktop, the Configuration Utility will be executed.
on the
The Configuration Utility was divided into four functions, Device
Information, Network Information, QoS, Security, Upgrade and About,
for details instruction, follow the below section.

Device Information
The Device Information screen shows the device information
including the MAC address, Firmware Version and the connected PLC
device.
Network Information
The Network Information screen shows all devices that were on the
power line network are listed here. Devices that are active on the
current logical network will show a transfer rate and receiver rate.

QoS
QoS requirements are different for various data types such as
streaming video or music, voice and raw data. To provide higher QoS
for streaming data, priority levels can be set using tags at the
beginning of data frames. Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) 802.1p
priority tags on Ethernet frames are used to specify 8 (0 – 7) levels
of ‘user priority’.
The 200M HomePlug® AV to Fast Ethernet Adapter allows 4 levels of
Channel Access Priority (CAP (0 – 3)). Therefore, the 8 levels of
VLAN Ethernet tags must be mapped to the 4 levels of CAP priority,
where CAP 3 is the highest priority and CAP 0 is the lowest. CAP 3
priority might be used for voice and network management frames,
CAP 2 is used for streaming video and music while CAP 1 and CAP 0
are used for data. Mapping VLAN tags or TOS bits to CAP levels is
easily done using the VLAN Priority Mapping function on the QoS tab
window.
8
Device Selection
Select the device from the drop down list and configure the device
selected.
List View
The QoS tab includes two list views to provide simple channel access
priority (CAP) classification for individual MAC addresses and IP Ports.
There is a collective limit of eight across both lists. No delimiters,
colons, or dashes are allowed in the MAC address format.
Priority Mapping
The ‘Priority Mapping’ group contains both VLAN and TOS Bit
mapping capability. When selected, packets matching the VLAN or
TOS Bit priority will be assigned the Powerline contention priority
(Channel Access Priority, CAP) as set in the corresponding dropdown
box. If a packet has both VLAN and TOS in it, VLAN will override
TOS.
Default CAP
The ‘Default CAP’ group allows for default priority mapping of packets
that do not have a VLAN or TOS bit. Settings are available for Unicast
(directed to a host).
‧ IGMP - (default CAP 3) - sets the channel access priority for IGMP
frames - these are the group management frames, not the
stream data
‧ IGMP managed Multicast Stream (default CAP 2) - sets the
default channel access priority for stream data belonging to a
snooped IGMP multicast group.
‧ Multicast/Broadcast - sets the default CAP1 for multicast frames
not in a snooped group and for broadcast frames.
‧ Unicast - (default CAP 1) - sets the default channel access
priority for unicast frames not matching any other classification
or mapping.
