*Theoretical data throughput numbers are based on maximum, theoretical PHY throughput for HomePlug AV. Actual data throughput of up to 93.8 Mbps (TCP) seen in laboratory testing. The throughput will vary based on the condition and noise found on the power lines within the home as well as the type of Ethernet Adapter supported on each computer or other device. Interference from devices that emit electrical noise, such as vacuum cleaners and hair dryers, may adversely affect the performance of this product.

**This product may interfere with devices such as lighting systems that have a dimmer switch, short wave radios, or other powerline devices that do not follow the HomePlug Powerline Alliance standard.

*** Power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system. Certain electrical conditions in your home, such as wiring conditions and configuration may effect the performance of this product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have a mixed network of 14Mbps, 85Mbps, 200Mbps, and 500Mbps HomePlug adapters?

What does the Link LED colors indicate?

Can I have a mixed network of 14Mbps, 85Mbps, 200Mbps, and 500Mbps HomePlug adapters?
Yes, but they are not all interoperable. This may sound like a contradiction but it isn't. The 14Mbps and 85Mbps will work together on the same network, but a connection between the 85Mbps and the 14Mbps adapters will always operate at the speed of the slower device.

The 200Mbps and 500Mbps will also work together on the same network, but a connection between the 200Mbps and the 500Mbps adapters will always operate at the speed of the slower device. Please see the Add a PWR500 to a 200AVP Encrypted Network instructions for more details on this type of network.

All of the adapters, the 14Mbps HomePlug adapter, the 85Mbps MegaPlug adapter, the 200Mbps and the 500Mbps adapters can co-exist on the same home electrical system and operate properly, but the 200Mbps and 500Mbps adapters cannot connect to the slower 14Mbps and 85Mbps adapters. This is because the 14 and the 85 comply with the earlier HomePlug 1.0 and 1.0 Turbo standard and use 56bit DES encryption, but the 200Mbps and 500Mbps adapter comply with HomePlug AV standard and it uses 128bit AES for encryption.

Example:
If you need to use the 500Mbps or 200Mbps and the 14Mbps or the 85Mbps adapters on the same network, there will need to be a pair of each. For a 500Mbps or 200Mbps adapter connected to a PC to communicate on the network, there must be a 500Mbps or 200Mbps adapter connected to the network router or hub; and since a 85Mbps adapter connected to a second PC cannot communicate with the 500Mbps or 200Mbps adapter, there must also be a 14Mbps or a 85Mbps adapter connected to the router or hub so that the slower 85Mbps adapter can communicate as well.

What does the Link LED colors indicate?

The different colors of the link LED indicate different power line throughput conditions.
Red means the condition is poor and less than 50Mpbs,
Orange indicates a fair line condition of 50-100Mbps,
Green means the line is in good condition with over 100Mbps throughput.

You can still maintain a network with different line conditions, but performance will vary.
