I have factory reset all Powerline Adapters and am trying to rebuild an extended network. I have succesfully paired the smaller adapter with the larger. I have also cloned the Wi-Fi on the larger adapter.
When a network cable is plugged between either adapter and my laptop, both units appear in the TP-PLC Utility. However if I remove the cable, they disappear.
If I plug the laptop into the adapter furthest away and switch off the Wi-Fi adapter of the laptop, I am connected to the internet.
I have recently changed my router from the Sky Q Hub (with 2 Ethernet ports) to the newer version with 5 Ethernet ports. With last router, I was able to run the TP-PLC Utility and wirelessly connect to all PLC's on the network. However, this does not work on the new router.
I have tried disabling the Firewall on both the Router and the Laptop - it makes no difference.
I have tried chaning the Ethernet option from Gigabit to Fast Ethernet on the Sky router - this wqas suggested as a fix. The PLC's showed briefly for about 15 seconds then disappeared again. I have reveresed and repeated this process a couple of times, with the PLC's not shwoing at all now.
I would appreciate any suggestions to how I can view (and maintain settings) using the TP-PLC Utilty without having to plug a cable directly into an adapter and the laptop.
