Hello

 

I have a customer thats using Three Edimax ethernet over power adapters for the internet. (1 by the router and the other two in different rooms)

 

One of the EOP units always had some trouble with the connection in that the centre green light would occassionally change to red.

 

But the internet still worked for the customer for the most part.

 

I don't think its an issue with the unit because it works normally in other places.

 

But now that a sky box has been installed in another room the EOP unit now won't connect to the internet at all.

 

I'm wondering if because the skybox is drawing power that now there isn't enough power to transmitt the internet to the EOP unit in the other room.

 

If that's the case it should fix itself when I turn off the sky.

 

Or maybe the issue is with the router as the sky will be connected to the internet also.

 

Any thoughts would be great, thanks

 

Ford

I've had similar problems in the past with EoP networking.

 

I ended up isolating the problem to a single appliance with a faulty power supply, presumably causing enough electrical noise to stop EoP from working. Once the power supply was replaced, network performance returned to normal.  It was a bit of a job to isolate, using the PC utility provided with my EoP adaptors to monitor the network's performance while switching appliances off one at a time.

Hi

 

Thats certainly feasible.

 

I probably don't have the disk though that came with the devices.

 

I expect I could download the software from Edimax.

 

I have since been to the customers site. The adapters are working now

 

According to the customer her internet wasn't working for several hours.

 

But we don't know what the status of the adapters were in terms of them being on or off.

 

I never did anything they were all working by the time I arrived.

 

The middle light still occassionally flicks from green to red from time to time.

 

But the internet is working as before.

 

It would certainly be useful to have some software to monitor or even have some testing equipment to test for noise on the lines but I'm not an electrican.

 

Certainly the red/green alternating lights could be an indicator of a faulty appliance somewhere else.

 

I wonder if I get a different type of adapter like a Netcomm or something would that overcome any power fluctuations better than an edimax.

 

Thanks
