2.0 Connecting the Mini Powerline Adapters
Note: For the best performance, connect the powerline adapters directly to the mains.
Don’t connect them to an extension cable or a power strip.
If you want to share the current internet connection with other computers, or if you
want to create your own network, the first step you need to take is connecting a
powerline adapter to your computer. Use the following steps to connect a powerline
adapter to your computer:
1. Take the powerline adapter out of the packing.
2. Connect the supplied network cable to the network connection of your computer.
3. Connect the other end of the supplied network cable to the LAN connection of the
powerline adapter.
4. Connect the powerline adapter to a wall outlet.
Now the powerline adapter has been connected to your computer, you need to
connect another powerline adapter to a free LAN port of your (modem)router. Use the
following steps to connect a powerline adapter to your (modem)router:
1. Take the powerline adapter out of the packing.
2. Connect the supplied network cable to a free LAN connection of your
(modem)router.
3. Connect the supplied network cable to the LAN connection of the powerline
adapter.
4. Connect the powerline adapter to a wall outlet.
Note: You can connect a maximum of 16 Mini Powerline adapters in your network.
3.0 Using the software
As soon as the powerline devices haven been connected correctly, a network
connection will be established automatically. It is possible to secure the powerline
network. In order to secure the network, the powerline software needs to be installed.

3.2 Securing your network using the software
After installing the software, an icon on your desktop has been added. This icon is
named ‘PLC Utility’.
Double-click this icon to open the powerline software. When the software has been
opened, the screen is divided in two parts: The upper part shows information about
the powerline adapter which is connected directly to this computer (local MAC). The
lower part shows information about other powerline adapters which are present in the
same network and have the (default) name ‘Remote’.
Note: If you want to secure powerline adapters which are not directly connected to
your computer, you need to use the so called ‘Password’ or ‘Device ID key’ which is
present on the sticker at the bottom of the powerline adapter. You do not have to use
this key to secure the adapter which is directly connected to your computer.

ID’ can be found on the sticker of the Powerline Mini. An example of this key is
‘XK8Y-GH36-BR1K-LSZA’.
Repeat steps 1 to 3 for all Powerline Mini adapters, until all adapters are shown
in the bottom list with a password in the ‘Password’ column.
Enter a made-up and secret network name in the ‘Network Name’ field.
Click ‘Set all remote devices whose Password has been entered. And “Set local
device’.
Click ‘OK’.
Your Powerline Mini home network has now been secured. There is no need to
repeat any of these steps on your other computers.
Hint: The ‘Network Name’ enables you to access your Powerline Mini home network.
Do not share this name with other people! If you wish, you can write down the
‘Network Name’ in the manual and keep the manual in a secure place.

Powerline Mini adapter which is not secured yet, you will need to set the so-called
‘Network Name’ on this new adapter to add this new powerline adapter to your already
secured network.
The new Powerline Mini is directly connected to a computer.
