Ch 2. Hardware Installation
Once you check everything from the package, you can start to deploy the PLC devices. To connect
this AP wirelessly need to search and connect the SSID (Wi-Fi name) of this device:
BVH-5101_XXXXXX (factory default is no wireless security setting)
Please see the following application diagrams for different application connections of this device.
Application 1 – Link to Remote DSL via Powerline
Via Powerline technology, the Powerline Wireless N Extender can access DSL modem at other
floors for internet accesses. Note that this needs another Powerline to Ethernet Bridge device at
other floor and is connected to internet, so that connection between Powerline to Ethernet Bridge
and Powerline to Ethernet Bridge can be done through the embedded PLC technology.
9
Application 2 – Wireless AP
The Powerline Wireless N Extender can be a central 802.11n access point to for all WLAN devices
to connect.
Application 3 – Multiple Floor Home Networking (1)
When Wi-Fi signal is not good for devices in different rooms to access, use Powerline technology
powered by the Powerline Wireless N Extender to extend home networking range to other rooms.
While on the same floor, the Wi-Fi function can be used for tablet, Smartphone or laptop to access
internet. Please see the diagram below and this allows other Powerline to Ethernet Bridge devices
at other rooms to access network resources via the Powerline communication.
10
Application 3 – Multiple Floor Home Networking (2)
By turning off the Wi-Fi function (need to operate in the web page settings), HomePlug AV
Wireless N Extender acts as Powerline Ethernet Bridge, which, when used together with other
remote Powerline Ethernet Bridge, enables other remote Ethernet devices (ex. IP devices or PC)
on the different floor to communicate via the embedded Powerline technology.
Fast Encryption by Buttons
The factory default wireless setting of this device is “WPA-PSK” mode and default with a set of Wi-Fi
name and password on a sticker at back of the device. This section describes (1) quick wireless
encryption set up using WPS Button and (2) quick encryption set up in a PLC network group using
Group Button.
Setting Wireless Encryption by WPS Button
This button can be pressed for WPS PBC authentication. The default security mode is WPA-PSK,
you may login the web configuration to set it to other modes. Then press the WPS button on this
device and then press WPS button on the WLAN station/client card to start WPS process. It is also
working if pressing WPS button on the WLAN station card first and then this device. The WPS
process will be started and connected after a few seconds.
For those WLAN station card without physical WPS button, the software WPS button should be
found in its utility software for this function.
11
Create Private Encrypted PLC Network Group (group pairing procedure)
The Powerline bridges are compliant HomePlug AV specification. Every ‘HomePlug AV’ compliant
PLC device has the same default network name, “HomePlug AV”, which is capable of
communicating with other “HomePlug AV” compliant devices. This is so called the “public network”.
Two or more powerline devices under the same network can communicate with one another.
If you have a pair of HomePlug AV powerline device, either one in the pair can be “device A” or
“device B”. By pressing the GROUP button more than 10 seconds; it will generate a random network
group (different from HomePlug AV). Users can take the following two steps to change the public
network group to the private network group to protect their data when transmit over the powerline.
Users also can create more than one private network groups by pressing GROUP button directly
without complicated software setup involved.
*NOTE: Put the devices side by side will be more convenient during the setting procedure. After network group
is set, the devices can be deployed anywhere at home.
Step I: Clear Group Attribute
Clear the original network group of device B by pressing its GROUP button more than 10 seconds
until all LED lights simultaneously turns off and on once. At this moment, its network group name has
been changed to a random name. It means that this device is (1) ready to be assigned another
network name or (2) to be used as a seed device so other PLC devices can join it to form a
private network group.
Step II: Join to Other Network Group
1. Press GROUP button of device A for 2 to 3 seconds (make sure POWER LED starts blinking).
2. Press GROUP button of device B for 2 to 3 seconds (make sure POWER LED starts blinking).
The device B which has cleared its group attribute will join to the device A which has not. This step
makes device B joins device A to become the same encrypted network. Users can add device C to
device A’s logical network with taking same steps, thus all of the device A, B, and C in the same
encrypted network group. User can assign as many Powerline devices into the logical network group
as described in the SPECIFICATION section.
*NOTE: It does not matter which device’s button is pressed first, but please press the second device’s
GROUP button within two minutes after pressing first device’s GROUP button. After 10 seconds, device will
start communicating with device A.
12
Remove Device From a Network Group
If you would like to remove device from a network group, you can generate a new group name for
the device that you would like to remove by following the Step I. This makes the device not able to
communicate with the original network group.
Create Private Network
If users want to make devices become private or separate devices from one group to two or more
network group, please follow Step 1 on those devices, and after that, take Step 2. Then private
network with random name is created.
P.S. Users can press the RESET button to reset the network name back to its factory default.
Standby Mode If no Ethernet cable is connected to the Powerline Ethernet Bridge within two minutes after
powering it on, this device will go into standby mode automatically, in order to lower power
consumption. Meanwhile, the POWER LED will blink ON and OFF at a slow rate. To exit the
standby mode, insert the Ethernet cable or re-plug in this device to the electrical outlet.
Note:
1. Some computers support “Wake on LAN” and it may cause the Ethernet adapters to stay
on without entering the standby mode.
2. Powerline Ethernet Switch does not go into standby mode.

Ch 4 Enhance PLC Performance During Installation
This Powerline device sends data to remote device using WLAN or PLC technology. When it sends
data to another remote Powerline device over the existing electrical wiring in your home, it may be
affected by noises on the electric wire or the length of the wiring between transmitting and receiving
devices. Keep the following in mind when placing this Powerline device at home.
AC Outlets Connection
Avoid connecting this device to an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) or backup power supply
device. For best results, we recommend connecting the adaptors directly to a wall outlet. Avoid
connecting high power-consumption appliances to the same wall outlet. Plug these power
consuming devices onto a noise filtering power strip to prevent these device interfere with this
Powerline device. See the following illustration figure:
For better performance, the following connection is recommended, although not isolate with Noise
filter power strip will still work OK.
The following connections are NOT recommended, although current PLC technology will overcome
most noise interference from electronic devices’ AC adapters or chargers.
35
Connection via Power Strip
If you must connect this device to a power strip, please keep the following recommendation in mind:
• Make sure the power strip does not have a noise filter or a surge protector, as these features
may impair communication signaling of the Powerline device sent over the electric wiring, and its
throughput or distance will be degraded.
• Use a power strip with an AC cord that is as short as possible.
• Do not connect the adaptor to a power strip that receives power from another power strip.
Electrical Interference
Certain electrical devices emit electrical noise. If this noise is spread over to the electrical wiring in
your home, it may interfere with the performance, speed, and reliability of this device. For best
results, we recommend connecting an electrical noise filter to noise emitting appliances.
The following appliances are more likely to produce noise:
•
Battery chargers (including cell phone chargers)
•
Hair dryers
•
Power drills
•
Halogen light
•
vacuum cleaner
Additionally, this product may interfere with the following appliance:
•
Lights or lamps which have a touch-sensitive on/off feature
Electrical Wiring
This device sends data to and from each other over the existing electrical wiring of your house. If two
wall outlets are separated by a great distance of electrical wiring, these devices may not
communicate well with each other. For more information, refer to the troubleshooting section.
