Problem with Advent powerline ethernet kit

  HelenG 17:46 12 Sep 2008


I am having a problem with the above mentioned kit. I got it for my husband to play on his xbox 360.
It works fine for a few games, but then it disconnects. I can't work out why and there is a serious lack of help available on the net.

Thanking in advance.

Without knowing much about powerline adapters, using fixed IP addressing throughout the network might give better connection stability.

I suspect you won't find much help on a HomePlug system because they are just plug and play. I've never had to take any actions to modify mine (or the one I've installed for my son). However the use of fixed IP addressing seems a good start. Basically the HomePlug is just replacing the LAN cable with the 240v cable so you might like to connect the X-Box to the Router by LAN cable (even if you have to move the X-Box for a while) and see if it performs better/worse than when connected by the HomePlug system. At least it would help to narrow the possibilities.
