Problem pairing up powerline adapters

  ponytail 12:29 11 Jul 2019

I have just received a triple pack of Powerline adapters model number TP-Link TL-PA8010P AV 1200 Passthrough.I do not appear to have any instructions.I know I have to plug two adapters in near to each other then press the pairing button on one for a minute and then press the pairing button on the second one.But all I have is the green power light on and no other lights on.Could someone explain what the pairing procedure is.Have printed off some TP Link instructions but not very clear.

Just bought some AV1000 Passthrough (last week) and they didn't seem to pair either.

however they work perfectly so just plug them in connect to the router and whatever machine at the other end and they should just work fine.

Good service from Amazon free standard delivery and they arrived in less than 24hrs.

PS other lights did not come on until I had a lan cable plugged in. you may find the same or you may have to have a wireless device in range

I forgot to ask do I plug one adapter into router before plugging in the other two or is it the other way round ie plug the adapters into the laptops and then connect to the router.

connect to router first then connect to laptop.

I have just what you suggested the adapter connected to the router has three lights showing as does the adapter connected to this laptop have not done the other laptop yet.Does that sound right

Are the two talking to each other?

if so then pair the third with any of the other two.
