evening all,

 

Has anyone had problems with powerline adapters not connecting on different floors?

 

my adapters have been working fine, i have them connected to a cctv system, Ive notice my cctv system has been offline, when ive checked the powerline light ha sbeen off.

 

I have succesfully connected them when there plugged in downstairs but I can't get them to connect when I plug it back in upstatirs.

 

Any ideas will be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Gordon

Hey

 

The 4010P kit is the older homeplugs and from experience these are known to be susceptible to interference.

 

Have these been working before or is this a new install?  

 

It it was working before, try disconnecting all possible plugs overnight as it could be static on the circuit... reconnect in morning and test.  I have seen this more than enough times fix this :)

 

If its a new install, then is your upstairs on a separate breaker or circuit?   modern breakers and trips can stop these working.   If so you might be better looking at a wireless solution, something like hte DECO M4

Umm that is a strange one!  How old are the devices?   It simply could be that they are now failing.

 

I had a friend used homeplugs (same model as yours) for years, then they just started to get slower and slower, eventually would only work over a short distance like yours.   He replaced them with the faster AV2 standard (100mbps+) and it worked again.   Just put it down to failing devices.
