Homeplug adapter connection problem


GBL

Likes # 0

My daughter has two PC's both using Win XP, one downstairs and the other upstairs. I have set up a router downstairs and have been attempting to use homeplug adapters to connect the upstairs PC to the internet, all lights light up on the adapter but there is no internet connection on the computer. Is there anything else I should be doing?? All worked fine at my house on a similar set up, I did nothing but plug and play, not this time round.

Homeplugs do not need any setup, they are very much Plug and Play, exactly what it says on the tin!

Yes, think it has to be a duff ethernet cable.

Sorry Nontek but some homeplugs do require setting up. I use ComTrend, as supplied for BT Vision. Whilst advertised as plug and play a quick search on their site will give the correct information to reset them and link them correctley
