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.

Press the pair button on the adapter near the router and then quickly press the button on The unpaired one

Press the pair button on the unit for approx 2 seconds and the power light will flash

with in 2 minutes press he pair button on the one connected to the router for a couple of seconds until it flashes

a few minutes later the leds will stop flashing and all leds should be lit on all three units.

As these were refurbished I did not get any instructions with them and no quick start guide.

I have just done what john bunyan suggested and the three lights are now showing on the three adapters so I am presuming all three are working.Thanks for the help and am just going to download the manual.
