     Make sure all your Powerline systems have used the same encryption key during the process of set network security.
     Always press the Reset button for one second on every device to set back Powerline adapter to its default factory settings
    • Power LED is off: You have to supply power to the electrical outlet and your Powerline devices are not connected with a power strip, extension cord.

  2. When you add up new adapters into your working and existing Powerline network, then you have to check their compatibility. So if they are suitable then you can add these new adapters successfully.

  3. We offer some more troubleshooting steps information about Netgear Powerline Adapters that are described below:
    a. Always Powerline devices plugged into a wall outlet without using an extension cord, power strips, surge protectors etc.
    b. You can connect 15 to 64 nodes which depend on your Powerline model.
    c. Powerline Devices have the device and network password. The device password is not changeable and is printed on the Powerline product label. The device password is used to make changes or access a remote Powerline adapter. It does not require network password to set up Powerline Network.
    d. It is “Plug & Play” technique so that it works without any additional setup.
    e. If you disconnect the cables or change the location of Powerline unit then it will take 5 minutes to refresh Powerline’s current status
    f. For best connectivity always use same Powerline models because software for a particular model may not be worked for another model.
