powerline adapter cannot find local network adapter

  RabbidNinja 16:34 25 Nov 2014

As said they can't seem to find each other despite being on the same powerline. I got them to connect to each other once but it required plugging in a wireless adapter to connect to my wireless network. I've checked to see if it is connected to the correct network and it has an address starting with 192.168. Any ideas are appreciated.

So: One has a hard Connection to your Router, the other has a hard Connection to a PC.

Is that how you're set up?

Yeah I have one plugged into my computer via ethernet cable and the other plugged into the wireless adapter via ethernet cable.

Have you pressed the pairing button on both adaptors within a few minuutes ?

  RabbidNinja 18:27 25 Nov 2014

yep I've done that, they both flash for a while and then stop and continue with being on

Try disconnecting the Ethernet cable to the computer and the adapter then placing the that adapter in a wall plug next to the one connected to the Router and then pair them up, when paired (you will see by the lights) move the slave back to the computer.

I've read and re-read your posts and am still very unclear as to what your setup is. Which part is Wireless?

On re-reading the postings several times I agree with you, Its all a bit confusing!

That's what I tried, unsuccessfully, to clear up.

  RabbidNinja 18:23 26 Nov 2014

sorry if I wasn't clear. I have one connected to my wireless router and the other connected to my PC in a different room.

Ventad I have just done that again and it hasn't worked. I'll try any suggestions you guys can think of.
