Installation is as simple as plugging two or more adapters into wall
outlets and pressing the pairing buttons to establish a connection
between them. By default the system creates a public, unprotected
network. However, by using the included setup utility you can easily
create a private, protected network. Up to 9 total Powerline adapters
can be used within a single network and multiple networks can operate on
the same electric circuit, giving a level of flexibility and control
not found in most ordinary Ethernet configurations.
These Powerline adapters fully conform to the HomeplugAV standard,
which means that Monoprice adapters can be used in the same network as
HomeplugAV compliant adapters from other manufacturers. The adapters are
able to transmit network traffic to distances up to 300 meters, however
for best results it is recommended to ensure the total network length
does not exceed 100 meters (328 feet).
Each Powerline adapter measures about 2.8" x 2.0" x 1.1". LEDs on the
face of each converter indicate power and network connectivity status.
