Hello

I need help. blush

I connected two TP-Link TL-WPA8630P Kit (HW: v2 Firmware: 2.0.3 Build 20171018 Rel.36564) to the same LAN but on two different electrical lines.

This is because in some areas I use the LAN cable, in others I can't and I used the powerline to extend via WIF I have assigned both static IPs which DHCP does not use.

By connecting one KIT at a time they both work correctly, but as soon as I connect them both one of the two becomes unreachable...

 

Is it possible to use two KITs in the same LAN but on different power lines?

 

Thank you

Yes, you can have powerlines in their own group.

 

Here is how you would add a powerline to your existing network: https://www.tp-link.com/support/faq/1618/

Hello,
I try to explain myself better.

 

I find myself in this situation:

 

Powerline 1(EXT) ~~~~~~~~~~ Powerline 2(base) ----------------(LAN)---------------- Powerline 3(base) ~~~~~~~~~~ Powerline 4(EXT)

 

Legend:

~  Power lines

- LAN

 

Power lines 1 and 2 are bind and power lines 3 and 4 would be bind.
Power lines 2 and 3 would be connected via an Ethernet cable

 

 

Powerline networks work fine when the LAN cable is disconnected, but when I connect the cable one of the two powerlines becomes unreachable and not pingable.

I've tried using two different network names, but it doesn't work

 

Thx

That will not work, you will create a network loop. It would be the exact same thing as connecting LAN port 2 into LAN port 3 into your router with the same cable.
