devolo homeplug setup issues

Likes # 0

just got a devolo 200 AV wireless N homeplug AV starter kit.

I have plugged in the AV into my router and a mains socket.

I have then plugged the wireless box into a socket downstairs.

All lights are on and i can see (but not connect to) the wireless signal, using my android phone.

When i fire up the devolo cockpit software to change the ssid, it doesn't pick up the dLAn adapter (which is connected directly to my router).

what am i doing wrong.

A beginner.

thanks in advance

Don't know the Devolo units, but is there a wireless key that you need to input to connect?

yes there is - but i have nowhere to input it.

Anyway, bit of movement....

i reset my PC router by switching it off then on again.

I then browsed in IE to 192.168.0.4 and got the setup screen!

i was able to change the SSID and password key so that my mobile now connects.

The DLan cockpit still doesn't connect - no idea what that's about, but i don't need it at the moment.

You can see a map of connections and checks speeds etc so it would be nice to see, but for all purposes i now have wifi activated downstairs.

hope this helps someone else!

Mine kept disconnecting until I changed the name of the network to the same as my router then changed the WAP key to the same as the router. My Dlan cockpit works fine.

You don't need the Cockpit for the 200 Range

Reset all your adapters to factory settings.

Get your computer to recognise the nearest adapter to your computer.

Then position the next adapter wherever you wish.

To connect to the Internet you will be asked for a password - that is the Sec ID on the unerneath of the adapter.
