Congratulations on your purchase of the Linksys HomeLink Phoneline 10M
Integrated PC Card. The Linksys HomeLink Phoneline 10M Integrated PC
Card now offers instant connectivity to multiple PC's over a home's existing
telephone lines. You can network any notebook computer by connecting it to
any standard phone line. There's no need for a switch, a hub, or even any
additional cables—the network runs on standard home-grade telephone wires
just like the ones you use everyday.
The HomeLink Phoneline 10M Integrated PC Card is the ultimate in versatile connectivity for mobile users. The 32-Bit PC Card is equipped with two
standard RJ-11 telephone ports. You can connect to any 1Mbps or 10Mbps
HomeLink network without swapping cards. The card fits into any standard
32-Bit Cardbus slot, leaving room for a 56K modem or other PC Card in
dual-slot notebooks. You can share files, printers, and CD-ROM drives at
10Mbps without interrupting regular telephone service. Since your
HomeLink network runs on regular telephone cables, there’s no extra hardware to buy. Just plug it into any standard wall jack and you’re networked!
The Linksys HomeLink Phoneline 10M Integrated PC Card utilizes advanced
technology approved by the Home Phoneline Networking Alliance
(HomePNA). This new technology lets your phone line carry computer data
as well as regular telephone voice service. You can talk on the telephone and
share resources over a network at the same time. Every standard telephone
jack in the home is capable of hosting a PC—you can connect up to 30 computers, thus transforming the home's telephone wiring into an easily expandable network. Want to add more PCs? Just put a HomeLink card in the computer and plug it into your phone jack. It’s that simple!

Connecting to a Phoneline Network
Connecting to a Phoneline Network
Computers on a HomeLink network can be connected in one of two ways.
They can be daisy chained through their HomeLink port to another
HomeLink PC in a string, or they can be connected directly to a phone jack.
The diagram below shows a HomeLink phoneline network that uses both
types of connections.
Locate your PC's card slot. The slot is usually located on the side of the
PC. If your computer has more than one slot, insert the HomeLink
Phoneline 10M Integrated PC Card into the first slot as shown in the picture below (slots are usually numbered in sequential order starting with 0
or 1). After verifying that the HomeLink Phoneline 10M Integrated PC
Card's hardware and software are working correctly, you can always
move the card to a different slot later if needed.
To connect your HomeLink PCs together in your HomeLink network:
1. Connect one end of your telephone cabling to your Phoneline 10M
Integrated PC Card’s HomeLink port.
3. Attach one end of the telephone cable to the HomeLink card’s HomeLink
port. Connect the other end of the cable into the telephone jack in your
wall.
The hardware installation is complete.
2. Connect the other end of that telephone cable into another computer’s
HomeLink port or directly into a phone jack.
Your computer is now connected to your Phoneline network.

choose a user level for security reasons.
7. In Network Neighborhood you can only see your self and no other computers
on the network.
• Make sure that the cables are connected correctly. Make sure you are getting Link or Activity lights on both the Phoneline Card and your hub. Try
changing to a new cable that you know is working.
• Your workgroup name may be different from other computers on your
network. Make sure each PC on the network is using the same workgroup
name and protocol.

• If you are connecting to a DHCP server, check your cabling and connection. If you require TCP/IP to be configured, check with your network
administrator or your Windows documentation for proper settings.
• If you don’t have a DHCP server on your network and your network
setup doesn’t require TCP/IP, you may remove the TCP/IP component
from Windows’ networking. To do this, click on Start, Settings, Control
Panel, then double-click on Network. Click once on the component
entry with the words TCP/IP and Linksys or TCP/IP on its own, then
