I have 2 belkin powerline AV adaptors on my network 1 connected to my router and 1 to my xbox360. I have just been given an advent powerline AV single unit. I want to use this to connect a third computer to my network. Although I have pluged it in and connected to the computer it sees the powerline network but cannot access it. How can I get these adaptors to recognise each other.
In order to use powerline adapters across manufacturers, they have to comply with the same industry standards (e.g., HomePlug 1.0 or HomePlug AV). It’s no different than dealing w/ wireless compatibility. In that case, all your wireless devices must comply w/ either the B, G, or N industry standards (as applicable).
