Re: wifi extender plw1000

Well we can try to help you. But first, please hit the caps lock key. Thank you.

 

You put its not working as advertised. Describe the problem. You only put its not worky but didn't put what the problem was, how you set it up, or at what point its failing. Are they not connecting to each other? Is wifi not broadcasting? Get what I'm going for here? A better description of whats going on.

What are the led's doing on the adapters (both adapters, color/blinking/each led)

 

If you put the powerline devices in the same room and try to set them up, do they work? We're trying to establish if its an issue of the devices themselves or your home. Some home wiring setups cause issues so we have to figure out where the problem is. 

here's your support site. it has guides and troubleshooting. The guide walks you through what the led's mean.
