HPNA – RJ-11; Connects to another Corinex AV Phoneline device, or to the
telephone socket in the wall.
Phone - RJ-11; Connects to a telephone or the phone port of an ADSL splitter.
LAN – 2x RJ-45; Connects to Ethernet port on FTTH/xDSL Modem or Switch for
Internet Access.
Power inlet – 5V DC; connects to the AC power adapter.
2.5 Installing the AV Phoneline Ethernet Bridge
To connect the Corinex AV Phoneline Ethernet Bridge to your computer, follow
the steps listed below.
1. Plug the supplied telephone cable to the HPNA port of your device and
connect it to the phone jack on the wall. If there was a telephone connected to
the phone jack on the wall, please connect it to the Phone port of the device.
2. Plug the supplied Ethernet cable to one of the LAN ports of your device and
connect it to the Ethernet slot of your computer.
3. Connect the power adapter cable to the 5V DC power inlet of your device and
plug the power adapter into an AC socket.
The Corinex AV Phoneline Ethernet Bridge is equipped with an automatic switch
enabling an Ethernet slot or card on the computer to be connected to the adapter
via a standard cable or to connect a cable/DSL modem via a cross-over cable to
the adapter.
2.6 Testing the Setup
To verify that the connection is working correctly, use the standard Ping utility. In
Windows, click on menu Start -> Run, then write the command ping
IPADDRESS -t, where IPADDRESS is the IP address of the computer to which
6
the AV Phoneline Ethernet Bridge is connected to, e.g. ping 192.168.4.1 -t (This
command will be stopped by pressing keys CTRL+C).
1. Ping the IP address of the computer to which the AV Phoneline Ethernet
Bridge is connected. If this fails, there is a problem with the Ethernet network
card or with the TCP/IP protocol.
2. Repeat the same process with the other computers on the Phoneline network.
3. If all nodes can ping themselves, try pinging another computer on the
Phoneline network. If this fails, there is a problem with connections on the
Phoneline. Try to check the connection to the phone wires network or use a
different phone jack.
4. The Phoneline units can communicate only on the same physical phone line.
Sometimes, there are multiple phone lines in the premise, for example if you
have a phone and a fax. If this is the case and you can get no connection
between two Phoneline units, please check if they are connected to the same
phone line. If you want to test which phone line the socket belongs to, you can
connect a phone to the socket and try to dial a phone, where you can see the
dialer’s number, for example a cellular phone with activated CLIP service. If the
numbers, when dialing from two different sockets, are not the same, it means
that the sockets belong to different phone lines.
If the setup does not work, refer to the troubleshooting guide, but first, try
unplugging the Phoneline device and reboot the computer as this sometimes
fixes the problem.
