Introduction
®
The installation of the Adapter only requires that a 10/100Mbps
network adapter is installed on the computers. This makes the
Powerline Turbo Ethernet Adapter compatible with any device,
including Mac, Windows, and UNIX machines.
For security, all HomePlug devices are equipped with 56-bit DES
encryption. The private home power grid plus encryption makes
HomePlug significantly more secure than competing technologies.
The Powerline Turbo Ethernet Adapter provides the best solution for
no-new-wires home networking. With easy plug-and-play installation,
and the reliability of HomePlug Ethernet’s products, the Powerline
Turbo Ethernet Adapter is the best solution for high-speed networking.
Features
• Up to 85Mbps* bandwidth over standard home power lines
• Estimated range of 300m in wall power lines
• HomePlug signal easily passes through circuit breaker
• 56-bit DES encryption ensures data security
• Encryption completed by hardware, without sacrifice to bandwidth
• Uses IEEE 802.3 computer interface
• Plug-and-play installation
• HomePlug Powerline Specification 1.0 Turbo-compliant

Thank you for purchasing the Powerline Turbo Ethernet Adapter (the
Adapter). Most people don’t enjoy buying long and expensive Ethernet
cables or pulling the cables from one place to another, but the Adapter
offers one of the easiest ways to enjoy home or small-business
networking. Users can now experience a total network solution with
the Adapter. The Powerline Turbo Ethernet Adapter operates on the
HomePlug Powerline Specification 1.0 Turbo standard, providing up to
85Mbps* bandwidth over home AC wiring. Since the home power lines
are the most pervasive medium in households with multiple outlets in
every room, the Adapter allows multiple home desktop and notebook
computers to be networked to share an Internet connection, printers,
and files, and play games without any additional wiring.

Installing and Setting Up the Adapters
Overview
Installation of the Powerline Turbo Ethernet Adapter takes only minutes
and does not require setting up long wires throughout the house. Simply
install the included software CD and after installation, physically plug
the unit into the computer and the wall outlet. Users have the option to
adjust security functions and the network platform once installation
is complete.
Running the InstallShield Wizard
1. Insert the CD into your CD-ROM drive and wait for the setup screen
to appear. If the CD-ROM does not automatically run the CD, click on
“Start” in the bottom left corner of your screen (for most Microsoft
Windows operating systems) and go to “Run”. Type in: “(CD Drive
Letter):\eth\setup.exe” and click “OK”.
2. Once the software loads, the following dialog box will appear:

Configuration
Overview
The Adapter uses 56-bit DES encryption to block access from the outside. The
key is set by using the HomePlug Configuration Utility on the CD. By default, the
protection is enabled. However, it is recommended that you change the default
network password. All your HomePlug devices must use the same network password
in order for the computers to be networked. Make sure that all devices are loaded
with the same network password.
Diagnose Powerline Network
Part 1: Diagnose a Local HomePlug Device
Double-click the “Belkin HomePlug Utility” icon on your desktop to open
the utility shown in the screen below.
ardware Setup
The “Main” tab shows the HomePlug units that are connected to the current
computer and other devices on the network. It also tells you the MAC address of
each device. It lets you refresh the window, if you change devices, and also allows
you to connect to different networks if multiple units are connected to
your computer.
Note: If the link quality is poor, and appears red, or the MAC address of any of
the units connected to this computer appears to be all 0s, then you may have a
defective unit. Please contact technical support.
8
Configuration
1
Part 2: Diagnose a Network HomePlug Device
The “Main” tab shows all the other HomePlug units on your powerline network.
It represents them by MAC address, and also shows the available bandwidth to
each unit (units farther away from the current computer might have a lower data
rate). If you add or subtract units from your home network, you might want to
re-scan, by clicking the “Scan” button. This will re-scan the network and refresh
with any changes.
Note: Only units with the same network password will appear; please verify
that they all have the same network password (case-sensitive).
Note: If a unit shows a MAC address of all 0s, this unit may not have a solid
connection, or may not connect at all. If this is the case, please contact
technical support.
Note: If there are units in your home that do not appear in this network scan,
unplug and re-plug all devices (only do this with the units that do not appear in
the network screen). If the problem persists, move the unit closer to this current
unit (adjacent plugs in the same wall socket is preferred). If the problem still
persists and that unit still does not appear on the network, then the unit may be
defective and you will need to contact technical support. Otherwise, if you view
the unit working, distance might be the only issue.
The networked HomePlug devices can be renamed by selecting the device and
clicking “Rename”.

Note: If you do not see ANY units in the device status, and there is a device
connected to your computer, try unplugging and re-plugging all devices. Also
make sure that the cable connecting your computer to the HomePlug device is
the right type and is working correctly. If everything seems to be correct, and
you do not see anything in the “Device” window, try rebooting your computer. If
the problem still persists, please contact technical support.
Configuration
Setting Up Security on a Local HomePlug Device
The “Privacy” tab allows you to change the network password to the unit that is
currently connected to this computer. This network password encrypts all data
that is sent from this unit using 56-bit data encryption standard (DES). The DES
encryption is very secure and difficult to crack.
Note: Every unit on your home network MUST have the same network
password in order for connectivity to be established throughout your home.
The default network password is “HomePlug”.

3. In the following window, enter the DEK located on the bottom of each device into
the “Password” field.

4. You can change the password for all networked devices from one computer using
this utility, instead of changing the password individually.
Note: The DEK is unique for EACH HomePlug device. To use this utility, you
will need to input the DEK for each unit.
5. The network password can be changed on all devices on which DEKs have been
entered. On the “Privacy” tab, simply change the private network name (network
password) and click “Set all devices”.
