1 HomePlug 

Powerline 

 

HomePlug Powerline is an excellent solution that can be used to extend your network. In the home or small office 

building, use HomePlug Ethernet Bridge Adapters to link multiple locations without the need to run Ethernet cable. 

Combined with a broadband DSL/Cable connection, every room with electrical power outlets will have easy access 

to high-speed Internet connection. 

 

1.1 Introduction 

 

HomePlug Pro PoE 

allows you to connect any 802.3af compatible Power over Ethernet device and make it part of 

the Powerline network and at the same time, supply DC power to the PoE device.  

HomePlug Pro PoE

 operates 

on HomePlug AV Powerline specification standard, providing up to 200Mbps bandwidth over home AC wiring.  The 

distinguishing feature of this product is its additional Power over Ethernet feature that can supply 48v DC power to 

another device (i.e. IP cameras, Set top boxes, Modems, Routers or Access Points) eliminating the need for an 

additional power supply.   

* Strongly recommend Windows Vista/2000/XP for utility configuration

1.4 Setup 

Plug and Play Installation for Homes: 

HomePlug is plug and play device; user is able to plug and play without any complex configuration and settings. 

Please execute the following hardware installation steps 1 to 4. 

 

Installation in homes with Existing HomePlug Network:  

1. Connect the 

HomePlug Pro PoE

 Ethernet Port to a 802.3af enabled PoE Device. 

2. Plug the

 HomePlug Pro PoE 

into a power outlet. 

3.  Wait a few seconds for startup to be completed, and then check the LEDs. 

 The 

Power

 LED should be ON 

 The 

HomePlug

 LED will be ON 

 The 

PoE

 LED should be ON 

4.  Hardware Installation is now completed, enjoy HomePlug Powerline connectivity. 

 

Installation in homes with NO EXISTING HomePlug Network: 

1.  Make sure that another HomePlug 200M device is connected to your network at the router or directly to a com-

puter. 

2. Connect the 

HomePlug Pro PoE

 Ethernet Port to a 802.3af enabled PoE Device. 

3.  Wait a few seconds for startup to be completed, and then check the LEDs. 

 The 

Power

 LED should be ON 

 The 

HomePlug

 LED will be ON 

 The 

PoE

 LED should be ON 

4.  Hardware Installation is now completed, enjoy HomePlug Powerline connectivity.

2 Security 

Button 

This section describes how to use Security button for configuration in the following situations: 

Creating a new security network 

Two unassociated Adapters (

Adapter A

 and 

Adapter B

) are forming a new network—Network AB  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The procedure is as follows:

 

 

1.  Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter A

 for 10 seconds and release it when device LED auto reboots. 

The password to 

Adapter A

 becomes “Random_A” 

2.  Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter B

 for 10 seconds and release it when device LED auto reboots. 

The password to 

Adapter B

 becomes “Random_B” 

3. Currently, 

Adapter A

 and 

Adapter B

 are not networked 

4.  Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter A

 for 2 seconds then release. 

5. The 

Power

 LED on 

Adapter A

 starts to flash. 

6.  Within 120 seconds after the Power LED on 

Adapter A

 starts to flash, press and hold the security button on 

Adapter B

 for 2 seconds then release. 

7. Both 

Adapter A

 and 

Adapter B

 are now networked together. 

 

Adding Adapter C to existing Network AB (Adapter A and Adapter B) 

One unassociated 

Adapter C

 is added to an existing Network AB.

The procedure is as follows:

  

8.  Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter C

 for 10 seconds and release it when device LED auto reboots. 

The password to 

Adapter C

 becomes “Random_C” 

9.  Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter A

 for 2 seconds. The 

Power

 LED on 

Adapter A

 starts to flash. 

10. Within 120 seconds after the Power LED on 

Adapter A

 starts to flash, press and hold the security button on 

Adapter C

 for 2 seconds then release. 

11. 

Adapter A

Adapter B

 and 

Adapter C

 are now networked to each other.  

 

Removing Adapter B from Adapter A & C Network and join with Adapter D & 
E to become Network BDE 

 

 

                         

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The procedure is as follows:

  

12. Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter B

 for 10 seconds and release it. The password to 

Adapter B

 

becomes “Random B” and removes itself from 

Adapter A & C

13. Press and hold the security button on 

Adapter D

 for 2 seconds.  

14. Within 120 seconds after the Power LED on 

Adapter D

 starts to flash, press and hold the security button on 

Adapter B

 for 2 seconds then release. 

15. 

Adapter B

 and 

Adapter D

 are now connected to each other, which in turn becomes part of Network BDE.

Operation

 

 

Operation is completely automatic, and no user intervention is required. 

If your HomePlug devices have difficulty communicating with each other, check the following: 

  Try plugging the unit into an adjacent plug. 

  Use a pin and hold the Reset Button down for two seconds on each unit you are trying to connect.  The unit 

lights should flash.  Then units will then connect based off factory settings. 

 

HomePlug Pro PoE 

works better when plugged directly into the wall socket. Connecting the 

HomePlug Pro 

PoE

 into the power strip or surge protectors may degrade the network performance.
