Hardware Installation
1. Always plug the powerline adapter directly into a power socket. Never plug
it into a multiple socket or uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
2. Please note that 200Mbps (Edimax HP-200x series) and 500Mbps (Edimax
HP-500x series) powerline adapters are able to communicate directly with
one another. 200Mbps and 500Mbps powerline adapters can be used on
the same household electric wiring as 14Mbps & 85Mbps powerline
adapters (Edimax HP-85XX series) without interfering, but are not able to
communicate directly with 14Mbps and 85Mbps powerline adapters.
Creating a Powerline Network
1. Connect a powerline adapter to your router via Ethernet cable, and then
plug it into a power socket.
2. Connect another powerline adapter to your computer, and then plug it into
a power socket.
Note: You can also connect the adapter to a printer, set top box, gaming
console, TV or other device with a network port, to add the device into the
powerline network.
3. Make sure that the PLC and LAN LEDs light up on both PLC adapters.
4. The computer and the router will be connected to the powerline network
Creating an Encrypted Powerline Network with Two Adapters
Once both adapters have been successfully connected, press the
“Group/Reset” button of each adapter for less than 3 seconds within 2
minutes. The adapters will automatically generate a random password to
encrypt the powerline network.
 To add additional adapters into the encrypted powerline network or
to remove an adapter from the powerline network, please refer to
the user manual for more details.
 If the powerline adapter in your network does not feature a
“Group/Reset” or an “Encrypt” button, you can use the utility
software included in the CD as an alternative. For more details please
refer to user manual.
