Fetch TV Configuration for Ethernet over Power Adapters
This guide is suitable for Ethernet over Power Adapters.
What we'll cover:
- Setting up a pair of Ethernet over Power Adapters
- What the lights on the Ethernet over Power Adapter mean
Ethernet over Power Adapters may only be used on the same electrical circuit in a home. Most homes typically have one circuit for lighting and another for electrical outlets, but large homes may have two or more circuits for electrical outlets.
Using a double adapter or a power board is not recommended.
The Ethernet over Power Adapters should already be paired, and work right out of the box:
- Pick up one of your Ethernet over Power Adapter units and plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the LAN port.
- Plug the other end of the Ethernet cable into an available LAN port on your modem.
- Plug the Ethernet over Power Adapter unit directly into an electrical outlet. Using a double adapter or a power board is not recommended.
- Pick up your other Ethernet over Power Adapter unit and plug one end of an Ethernet cable into the LAN port.
- Plug the other end into the Ethernet port on the back of the device you wish to connect to your modem (for example, your Fetch TV set top box).
- If you haven't already done so, make sure the electrical outlets used for both Ethernet over Power Adapter units are turned on. The PWR (power) lights on each unit will illuminate.
- All done! When both Ethernet over Power Adapter units have a connection with each other, the LAN lights will turn on and remain solid.
