AV500+ Powerline Adapter with AC Pass Through
Introduction
This device is an AV500+ Powerline Adapter with AC Pass Through which transforms your house’s
existing electrical wiring into a ubiquitous networking infrastructure. Simply plug this AV500+ Powerline
Adapter with AC Pass Through into an ordinary AC power outlet which will easily extend your
Cable/xDSL broadband connection or existing Ethernet (LAN) network to any other electrical outlet in
any room of a house without the need of any new cabling.
This Powerline Adapter supports up to 500Mbps data rate over the existing household power circuit.
With data rates of 500Mbps, full multimedia application can easily be supported throughout the whole
house in addition to Internet access. This Mini Powerline Adapter uses the existing power lines installed
in a home as a path to transmit digital data, voice, audio and video between devices.
To ensure data communication’s security and multimedia applications, this Mini Powerline Adapter
support built-in 128-bit AES encryption.
The new Powerline Adapter TL-PA551 from TP-LINK provides extra convenience and better
performance for your home network with its integrated electrical socket and mains filer. The common
problem of wasting an electrical outlet is solved and additional terminal devices or multiple sockets can
be connected to the adapter just like to a normal wall socket. What’s more, the data transmission in the
network can be significantly improved by the integrated mains filter.With minimum setup, you can install
and use this Mini Powerline Adapter within minutes. The adapter adds two useful functions.
1. Existing connection with a new unassociated device added via the Pair Button.

Connecting Mechanism
2.1 Introduction
The Powerline Adapter supports up to 500Mbps data rate. With this high speed connection rate, this
Powerline Adapter allows you to set up a high speed home network by using your home existing
electrical wiring. Simply plug this Powerline Adapter into an ordinary power outlet to extend your
Cable/xDSL broadband connection or existing LAN network to any other electrical outlet in any room of
your house.
Note that this Powerline Adapter works in pairs. You need to plug one Powerline Adapter into a power
outlet for each computer and connect the Powerline Adapter to the computer’s LAN card with an
Ethernet cable; you will also need another Powerline Adapter connected to your Cable/xDSL broadband
so as to extend your broadband connection or Internet surfing. With clean power line, the distance
between two Powerline Adapters can reach 300 meters at lease, but the actual distance may vary due to
the environment.
Section below describes the connection instructions and hardware connection mechanism.
2.2 Connection Instruction
To ensure the optimum performance of the Powerline Adapter and significantly improve the transmission
capacity of the network, we recommend that you comply with the following connection rules:
y
Plug the Powerline Adapter directly into a wall socket but not the multiple sockets.
y
To take full advantage of the filter function of the Powerline Adapter and to improve data
transmission in the network, always plug the multiple sockets into the integrated electrical socket of
the Powerline Adapter.

4.3 Advanced
The third tab window labeled “Advanced” is for Quality of Service. With the proper configuration, the
limit bandwidth can be took full advantage. QoS requirements are different for various data types such as
streaming video or music, voice and raw data. To provide higher QoS for streaming data, priority levels
can be set using tags at the beginning of data frames. Virtual Local Area Network (Vlan) 802.1p priority
tags on Ethernet frames are used to specify 8 (0~7) levels of “user priority”. Homeplug AV powerline
allows for 4 levels of Channel Access Priority CAP 0-3)). Therefore, the 8 levels of VLAN Ethernet tags
must be mapped to the 4 levels of CAP priority, where CAP 3 is the highest priority and CAP 0 is the
lowest. CAP 3 priority might be used for voice and network management frames, CAP 2 is used for
streaming video while CAP 1 and CAP 0 are used for data. Mapping VLAN tags to CAP levels is easily
done using the VLAN Priority Mapping function on the QoS tab window.
¾
Simple Application Mapping: The group allows you to choose what type of traffic with the highest
user priority you will use your local HomePlug device for by pitching one of the following radios.
Please select the radio type according to your demand.
¾
Advanced Priority Mapping: The group sets VLAN priority to CAP mapping and default priority.
Note that in HomePlug, CAP 3 is the highest priority while CAP 0 is the lowest priority. The values
shown in VLAN Tags Priority are the default settings for the first running.

AV500+ Powerline Adapter with AC Pass Through
Advanced Feature: How to Use the Pair Buttons
5.1 Pair (Secure with 128 bits-AES)
The Homeplug AV standard uses 128-bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) to safely transmit data
between powerline adapters. For the powerline adapters to communicate with each other they all need
to use the same Network Membership Key (NMK). Otherwise, they cannot unscramble the encrypted
data sent in the powerline network.
The Pair button allows you to set up a secure powerline connection with another HomePlug AV
compliant powerline devices which also support the Pair feature.
5.2 Set Up a Secured Powerline AV Network with the Pair Button
You can connect a number of devices on a powerline network, but you can only use the Pair button on
two devices at a time.
Create a secured Powerline network using the Pair button:
Step 1. Press the Pair button of Powerline adapter A for one second, the Power LED will start flashing.
Step 2. Press the Pair button of Powerline adapter B for one second, the Power LED will start flashing.
(This must be done within 120 seconds after pressing the pair button of powerline adapter A.)
Step 3.
Wait for about 60 seconds while your Powerline adapter A and B are connecting. The Power
LED on both adapters will stop flashing and become solid light when the connection is made.
20
TL-PA551
AV500+ Powerline Adapter with AC Pass Through
Join an existing secured Powerline AV Network:
Powerline adapter A and Powerline adapter B form a HomeplugAV Network, Powerline adapter C wants
to join this network.
Step 1.
Press and hold the Pair button on Powerline adapter C for one second.
Step 2.
Press and hold the Pair button on Powerline adapter A/B for one second.
(This step must be taken within 120 seconds after step 1 is finished.)
Step 3.
Wait for about 60 seconds while your Powerline adapters are connecting. The Power LED on
Powerline adapter A/B and C will stop flashing and become solid light when the connection is
made.
) Note:
The sequence of Step 1 and Step 2 can be exchanged.
Leave an existing secured Powerline AV Network:
As the figure above shown, Powerline adapter A, B and C have formed a HomeplugAV Network. The
user wants to remove one device (Powerline adapter A) from this network.
Step 1.
Press and hold the Pair button on Powerline adapter A for at least 10 seconds. Powerline
adapter A will reset and restart. (The Power LED of Powerline adapter A will momentarily
extinguish during resetting, flash during restarting then illuminate steadily.)
Step 2.
Wait for the reset to complete.
