9 Introduction
2 Introduction
2.1 What exactly is dLAN?
dLAN is an intelligent, secure technology that lets you
set up a home network easily, quickly and economically via your household electrical wiring, without the
need for complex and expensive dedicated cabling.
The dLAN (direct Local Area Network) uses the household power grid to transfer data between computers
and other network components equipped with suitable
adapters. As a result, any electrical socket can be used
as a network access point. The data is modulated prior
to transfer and sent as a signal via household power
lines. State-of-the-art technology ensures that the
power and data networks do not interfere with one another. Networking via dLAN is fast and secure. The
data is encrypted using a key to prevent interception by
third parties.

햳
Plug the dLAN 1200 triple+ into a wall socket. As
soon as the LED indicator light flashes red at regular intervals of 0.5 sec., the adapter is ready to
operate but not yet integrated into the dLAN network.
Connecting the dLAN 1200+ and dLAN 1200 triple+ to a dLAN network
Before you can use the adapter in a dLAN network, first
you have to connect it as a network. This is accomplished by using a shared dLAN password. This forms
a delimited dLAN network. Shared use of the dLAN
password serves both as access control to the dLAN
network as well as the encryption, and thereby the
interception protection, of the transmitted data.
The dLAN password can be set in different ways:
햴
dLAN network encryption:
쎲 dLAN network encryption: at the touch of a button: First press the encryption button of the
dLAN 1200+ for approx. 1 second, and then
within 2 minutes press the encryption button of
the dLAN 1200 triple+ for approx.1 second.

4.1 Security in the dLAN
Before you can use the dLAN 1200 triple+ in your
dLAN network, you must first connect it to other dLAN
devices as a network. Two specific pieces of information are especially important for this:
쎲 The joint use of the dLAN password is for access
control purposes; it results in a delimited dLAN
network.
쎲 The joint use of the dLAN password is for network
encryption purposes, protecting against interception of the transmitted data.
The dLAN password can be specified automatically by
means of the encryption button or manually using
the devolo Cockpit program. Please note the following basic principle when choosing your encryption
method:
쎲 For dLAN networks in which all associated
dLAN devices are equipped with an encryption button, a dLAN password can be easily generated at the touch of a button.
쎲 For dLAN networks that include a combination of
devices with and without encryption but-
tons, the password must be specified with the
devolo Cockpit.
4.2 dLAN network encryption
at the touch of a button
To encrypt a dLAN network in which all associated devices are equipped with an encryption button, simply
press the encryption button located on the device.
Pressing this button will encrypt your dLAN network
with a randomly generated password.

Error states of the adapter are displayed even
though the LED is switched off.
4.5 Activate encryption by means
of devolo Cockpit
If you are using dLAN devices without encryption
buttons, encryption can only take place through
devolo Cockpit.
Before the networking procedure, note the security IDs of all dLAN adapters. This unique
identifier of each dLAN device can be found on
the rating plate on the housing. It consists of 4
x 4 letters separated by dashes (e.g. ANJRKMOR-KSHT-QRUV). Ensure that all dLAN
adapters are connected to the mains supply and
computers or other network components as appropriate.
Scan for local adapter
After devolo Cockpit is started, it starts by searching
for the dLAN adapter connected directly to your
computer.
Adding an adapter
Add all the dLAN devices you want to your dLAN
network by selecting the Add button. You will need the
16 digit security ID of the adapter, which can be
found on the label on the rear side of the housing.
Enter it now into the Security ID field and confirm
with OK. If a security ID is correct and the device can
devolo dLAN 1200 triple+
23 Network configuration
be reached in the dLAN network, it will be added to
your network and displayed in the program.
Changing the network password
After you have added all desired dLAN devices to your
dLAN network, select the Change Password button
to assign a new joint network password. All adapters
present in your dLAN network are updated with the
new password automatically.
You can choose between your own password or a random password. To define your own password, enter it
into the Network password text field (8 character
minimum). Alternatively, you can have a randomly selected and highly secure password assigned using the
Generate secure password button. All present
adapters in your dLAN network will receive the new
password automatically.
The entered or automatically created password
can be shown in the text field in readable form
by activating the option "Show characters".
If devolo Cockpit is called up again later after a successful initial installation, for example to integrate a
new adapter into a network, the application remembers the devices that were entered earlier. Enter the
new device as described in the Adding an adapter
section.

쎲 Plug the dLAN 1200 triple+ directly into a wall
socket. Avoid using power strips. This may impair
the transmission of the dLAN signals.
쎲 If there are several sockets in the wall directly next
to each other, they behave like a power strip. Individual sockets are optimal.
