Congratulations on your purchase of this Net Power 302 AV. This manual helps to get
familiar with the Adapter. This manual contains detailed instructions in operation of
this product. Please keep this manual for future reference.
1. Introduction
NetPower 302AV utilizes the existing electrical wiring in the house as a path to create
a secured network of computers and Ethernet devices. With a maximum data rate of
up to 200 Mbps, NetPower 302AV can reliably handle high requirement applications
like broadband Internet, high definition video streaming, and Voice over IP.
HomePlug AV converts digital signals to a complex analog signal that traverses along
the electrical wires. When receiving the analog signal, HomePlug AV converts the
analog signal back to digital. To make the signal secured, a 128-bit AES encryption is
applied.
A HomePlug AV device can only communicate with other HomePlug AV devices that
use the same Private Network Name. The Private Network Name can be changed
manually using the HomePlug AV Utility software on a computer with a Windows
operating system. When you use the software, you have to manually type the Private
Network Name for the device. Another way to change the Private Network Name is to
use the Simple Connect button SYNC (this feature automatically creates an encrypted
Private Network Name). It can also be used to reset the Private Network Name or to
add a device into an existing HomePlug AV network.
When a HomePlug AV communicates with another device, the Powerline Activity LED
will give you an idea about the status.

State, you should find the Power LED blinks steadily signifying it is in Join
state.

Wait for the devices to boot again and when the PLC LEDs of both devices
lit steadily, you will now have device A joined with the BC network group.
Scenario 3: A NetPower 302AV device A of network group AD wants to join
an existing network group BC. For a device which already belongs to a network
group is to join with a different network group, that device has to be ungrouped from
its current attached group first.
Example:

Press the Sync Button of device A for more than 10 seconds to ungroup it
from network group AD.

Then press the Sync Button of device (B or C) of network group BC for
1~3 seconds to turn it to Broadcast State, you should find the Power LED
blinks steadily signifying it is in Broadcast state.

Privacy Tab allows user the convenience to manage the security of the private
powerline network. In addition, user can also uitlize this feature to add a new
HomePlug device to the private network instead of manually adding the device using
its Sync button.
In order to add devices to the network through the utility GUI, Private Network Name
of each device is required to be the same with the local device.
All HomePlug devices are shipped using a default logical network name “NetPower
302AV”. The Privacy tab screen allows user to change its default public network type
to a private network by changing the network name (network password) of the device.
The user can always reset the network type to HomePlug network (Public) by entering
22
“NetPower302AV” as the network name or by clicking on the Use Default button.

Set Local Device Only button can be used to change the Private
Network Name of the local device. If a new Private Network Name is
entered, all associated devices seen on the Main Tab previously will no
longer be present in the new network, thus causing the local device unable
to communicate with other devices which were in the network previously.

Set All Devices button is used to change the Private Network Name of all
devices that appear on the Main tab screen whose Device Password had
been entered correctly. For devices whose device passwords were not
entered, this operation will fail and will report a failure message.
Changing the network name to anything other than NetPower302AV
will show the network type on the main screen as Private.
In case you cannot connect into the network after changing the Private
Network Name, please power cycle the device. To power cycle,
disconnect and then reconnect HomePlug AV from the power outlet.
A Private Network Name is a string of 8 to 64 characters enables
HomePlug AV devices to communicate with each other.
When changing the Private Network Name of remote devices, you will
need the Device Password that appears on the label pasted on the

APPENDIX A: Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use HomePlug AV with older HomePlug versions?
All HomePlug AV versions can communicate with each other. HomePlug AV, however,
is not backward compatible with HomePlug 1.0 releases.
If you will use different versions of HomePlug AV in a single network, you need to use
the HomePlug AV Utility software to create a Private Network Name for all devices.
Unlike the new version of HomePlug AV, older versions do not feature the Simple
Connect button which enables the device to create a common Private Network Name
without using the software.
How does HomePlug AV achieve a higher bandwidth than HomePlug Turbo
and HomePlug 1.0 devices?
HomePlug AV complies with the HomePlug AV standard. It achieves higher data
throughput by using a broader frequency spectrum (2-30 MHz rather than 4-21 MHz),
by using a better access method (Time Division Multiple Access rather than Carrier
Sense Multiple Access/Collision Detection), and by using a better processor with a
greater bitload per Hz.
Can HomePlug AV be used alongside HomePlug 1.0 devices within the
network?
HomePlug 1.0 and HomePlug AV standards can coexist but they will not be able to
communicate with each other.
Which operating system (OS) is compatible with HomePlug AV?
HomePlug AV is operating system independent. However, the HomePlug AV Utility
requires a Windows operating system (98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista) with the .NET
Framework installed.
How difficult is it to set up a network with HomePlug AV?
HomePlug AV is a plug and play device. Connect it to an Ethernet device, plug it to a
wall socket, and it is ready to use. Even the most inexperienced user can set up the
network with ease. Installing the HomePlug AV Utility software is only needed if you
29
intend to manually change the Private Network Name or view the connection rate.
How many devices do I need to create a HomePlug AV network?
At least two devices are needed to create a HomePlug AV network.
Is HomePlug AV suitable for triple play like the simultaneous use of data,
voice, and video applications?
Yes, triple play is supported.
What data transfer rates do I need for high definition TV?
A variety of HDTV resolutions are available. The following are the most common
resolutions opposite the required transfer rate:

720p, mpeg2: 09-10 Mbps

720p, mpeg4: 06-08 Mbps

1080i, mpeg2: 12-15 Mbps

1080i, mpeg4: 08-10 Mbps
Does HomePlug AV have a security mechanism?
Yes. HomePlug AV uses 128-bit AES encryption.
Are Gigabit Ethernet adapters required for use with HomePlug AV?
No. Under ideal conditions, HomePlug AV has a physical gross data rate of up to 200
Mbps. The effective net data rate is somewhat lower. A 100 Mbps Ethernet adapter is
therefore adequate in most cases.
Does the technology support multicast video server streams (IP-TV)?
Yes.
Do I need an Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) for HomePlug AV?
No. HomePlug AV can operate in an environment using 100-240V.
How many HomePlug AVs can operate in one household?
Up to 64 devices can be used within the household.
30
What is the maximum range of HomePlug AV?
The maximum range is 200 meters.
If one HomePlug AV is connected to a LAN switch, is it possible for other
computers in the switch to communicate with other HomePlug AV devices?
Yes.
Can my neighbors access my HomePlug AV network?
Your electric meter prevents any signal from going outside your household. However,
we strongly suggest that you create your own personalized Private Network Name to
prevent unauthorized access into your network.
How much is the power consumption of HomePlug AV on a 230-volt power
supply?
HomePlug AV has a power consumption of 3,96Watts (1.05 W in IDLE mode).
Can I use HomePlug AV to connect computers located in different floors of
the building?
Yes, as long as the electric wires are connected and do not exceed 200 meters.
If one HomePlug AV is connected to a LAN switch, is it possible for other
computers in the switch to communicate with other HomePlug AV devices?
Yes.
Can I use HomePlug AV in an old house with old power supply lines (partly
without separated ground wire)?
Yes. However, performance may be affected because of the quality of the wires.
Can I plug HomePlug AV into a multiple socket switch or do I have to plug it
directly to the wall socket?
You can plug HomePlug AV into a multiple socket switch. However, we strongly advise
to plug it directly to a wall socket to achieve optimal performance.
31
Do I need electrical grounding for the device?
HomePlug AV does not require electrical grounding.
After a blackout, will HomePlug AV switch on automatically?
Yes. If you experience connection issues, unplug the device and plug it back.
