Simply connect the Powerline 500 adapter to your existing Internet modem through an Ethernet port and you will immediately have an Internet connection available at any power socket. Then by using a Powerline Wi-Fi 500 adapter you can create a new Wi-Fi Hotspot in the room of your choice and extend your Wi-Fi home coverage in minutes.
Do you have trouble to cover some areas of your home with Wi-Fi? Do you need Wi-Fi in your loft, garret, basement or garden?
With the Powerline Wi-Fi 500 Kit you'll create a high-speed and stable Wi-Fi Hotspot exactly there, where you really need it.
The Powerline W-Fi 500 Kit uses your existing electrical wiring and brings your Internet signal at a speed of 500 Mbit/s to any power socket of your home. From there, you can create a Wi-Fi Hotspot at a speed up to 300 Mbit/s to cover Wi-Fi unreached areas of your home.
Use the Powerline Wi-Fi 500 Kit to connect all your bandwidth hungry wired devices to the Internet, such as IPTV decoder, Smart TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android box, Apple TV®, media player, computer, games console ...
The Powerline Wi-Fi 500 adapter is equipped with 2 Ethernet ports. Connect all of your network compatible devices to the Internet in minutes! No system requirements! No software to install! Just Plug & Play.
The Powerline 500 adapter is equipped with an extra noise filtered power socket. Why do you need it? Because, you need to connect the Powerline 500 adapter to your modem/router in a place where very often other appliances need also a power supply.
Do not waste any power outlet. Plug the Powerline 500 adapters directly into the wall outlet and use the extra noise filtered power socket to power your appliances or to plug in a power strip.
The integrated noise filter reduces electrical interference and improves the performance of the Powerline communications.

The home icon LED is not lit, which means that the Wi-Fi module is not paired with the single powerline unit in the kit. The units must therefore be re-paired.
Instructions: Each new powerline outlet must be paired with the first outlet.

  • Connect the adapters one after the other to a power strip (example picture).
  • Make sure that each adapter is connected to the LAN port with an Ethernet RJ45 cable (supplied in the box) to a working device (box, Android box, Smart TV, computer, etc.)

There must be communication on the Ethernet port otherwise the adapter will automatically go into standby mode.
o Example: INTERNET BOX / RJ45 cable / Powerline500 / Multi-socket / Powerline500 / RJ45 cable / PC

  • Once the adapter is plugged in and connected to the Ethernet, simply press the "Connect & Secure" button on the front panel for 10 seconds.
  • Repeat the same operation on the second adapter, always taking care to have an active Ethernet connection.
  • Repeat the same operation for a third Powerline adapter up to 8 Powerline 500 and Powerline 500 Wi-Fi Strong on the same electrical installation.

All the LEDs must be green at the end of the operations.

Once paired, the units can be placed anywhere in your home.

Reset the Powerline Wi-Fi with a paper clip until the LEDs are flashing (hole located under the Powerline Wi-Fi)

Then enter this IP address in the address bar of your Internet browser.
