Initial Powerline Adapter Setup

NOTE: A minimum of two G.hn Powerline Adapters are required to create a connection. The following instructions will use the PG-9182PT as the primary connection to connect to the Network Device (ModemRouter, or Access Point), however, any Comtrend G.hn Powerline Adapter can be used.→ If you are setting up a G.hn Powerline network for the first time, then follow the below steps.→ If you are adding to an existing G.hn Powerline network, then skip to Steps 3-5.

  1. Plug the PG-9182PT into a power outlet near your Network Device (Modem, Router, or Access Point). For maximum performance, please plug the Powerline Adapter directly into the wall outlet. Do not plug into a power strip or surge protector, as network performance could degrade significantly.
  2. Connect the Powerline Adapter to your Network Device (Modem, Router, or Access Point) with an Ethernet (RJ-45) cable. Wait 10 seconds for the Ethernet LED to light up GREEN, which indicates a connection is established. A flashing GREEN light indicates that the device is sending data.

    Device Connection

  3. Plug the PG-9182PoE into a power outlet near the PoE-enabled device (ex.PoE IP Camera, Wireless Access Point, etc.). Please wait for up to 30 seconds for the Power LED  and Security LED to remain solid GREEN.
  4. Connect this Powerline Adapter to the PoE-enabled device (ex. IP Camera, Wireless Access Point, etc.) with an Ethernet (RJ-45) cable.

    Pairing the Powerline Adapters

  5. Press the Security Button on the PG-9182PT until you see the Security LED start blinking GREEN. Then you have up to 2 minutes to press the Security Button on the PG-9182PoE (hold the button until you see the Security LED to start blinking GREEN). The Security LED and the Connection LED should be solid GREEN on both Adapters when they are successfully paired. This could take up to 2 minutes.Note: If you are adding to an existing G.hn Powerline network, then press the Security Button on the adapter connected to your Network Device until you see the Security LED start blinking GREEN. Then press the Security Button on the Powerline Adapter you are adding until you see the Security LED start blinking GREEN. The Security LED and the Connection LED will light up GREEN on all adapters within the G.hn Powerline network.
  6. Repeat Steps 3 to 5 to add additional Powerline Adapters. Please note that up to 16 devices can be connected within a Powerline G.hn network.

You Have Successfully Set Up Your G.hn Powerline Network!

Troubleshooting

The following information should help you diagnose basic setup or installation problems.Connection LED is OFF: The Connection LED shows that the Powerline Adapter is connected to the G.hn Network. If the indicator is off, then plug both Powerline Adapters that you are attempting to pair into power outlets that are located within the same room. The Connection LED should light up GREEN. If not, then press the Reset Button on each adapter for more than 10 seconds. Afterward, you can plug the units back into their original location.

Security LED is OFF: If the Security LED is off, then it means the Powerline Adapter is not securely paired. Press the Security Button on the Powerline Adapter for 3 seconds until you see the

Security LED starts flashing GREEN. Repeat this on the other Powerline Adapter. The Security LED and the Connection LED will light up GREEN on both adapters. This means the adapters are now securely paired and have a strong connection.

To join an existing G.hn Powerline network, press the Security Button on any Powerline Adapter in the existing G.hn Powerline network for 2 seconds until you see the Security LED start flashing GREEN. Then press the Security Button on the additional Powerline Adapter. The Security LED and the Connection LED will light up GREEN on both adapters.*If you have tried the above and are still experiencing problems, you can reset all devices to factory default by pushing the Reset Button for more than 10 seconds (until all the LEDs of the device blink).
