Section 3 : Advance Features - How to use the SECURE / RESET Button
3.1
Secure Pairing ( Secured with 128 bits-AES)
The Powerline 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 SECURE button allows you to set up a secure powerline connection with other HomePlug AV
compliant powerline devices which also support this feature.
3.2
Set Up a Powerline Network with the SECURE button
You can connect a number of devices on a powerline network, but you can use the SECURE button
on only two devices at a time.

Step 1: Press the SECURE button of device A for 2 seconds, the Power / LAN / Powerline LEDs will
start blinking.
Step 2: Press the SECURE button of device B for 2 seconds, the Power / LAN / Powerline LEDs will
start blinking.
Step 3: Wait for the Powerline LED of both devices to light up then you will now have both devices
being in the same network group.
