LEDs on your PLC adapters
You are watching TV wirelessly: what do the LED indicators on your PLC adapter mean (Ethernet via the electric current)?
PLC with 1 light indicator
The light indicators of your CPL adapter can be red or white and blinking rapidly or slowly:
- White and solid: the connection is good and the network is correctly configured.
- White and blinking rapidly: the device is being configured.
- White and blinking slowly: the device is on standby. It will restart the moment you start using the Internet or television.
- Red and blinking rapidly: the CPLs are not communicating with each other.
- Red and blinking slowly: the signal is poor.
PLC with 3 light indicators
- If all the little LEDs are green, this means that the connection between your adapters is working properly.
- If one of the LEDs is orange, red or switched off, this doesn't necessarily mean that there's a problem. See the explanations below:
- Green: the adapter is working.
- Orange: the adapter is in standby mode because there's no data traffic on the line. As soon as there is traffic, the adapter will be reactivated.
- Off: the adapter has no electric power.
- Green: there is an Ethernet connection between the 2 CPLs (10 or 100 Mbps).
- Orange: the connection between the 2 adapters allows SD flow.
- Red: the connection between the 2 adapters allows Internet flow, but not TV flow. To correct this, proceed as follows:
- Check the cables of the 2 adapters. Test them on different sockets because sometimes the problem is with the socket.
- If that doesn't work, restart the adapters. To do so, unplug the adapters, plug them in again, wait for a while, then check if the LEDs turn green.
- If that doesn't work, reset your adapters.
- Off: there is no connection between the 2 PLC adapters.
- Green: there is a connection between the PLC adapter and another device (modem or decoder).
- Off: there is no Ethernet connection. This LED indicator is off when no device, modem, computer or decoder is connected to the PLC adapter. Connect a compatible device.
