Installation LED Definitions (Buttons from top to bottom) 1. PWR (Upper LED) Shows the status of the adapter: the LED is on, if the adapter is connected to power. 2. VPI (Middle LED) Displays the quality of the powerline link, when the adapter is synchronized with another adapter on the same network.
2.4.2 SYNC/ RST Buttton 184.108.40.206 OBUS By default, Corinex AV200 Ethernet Wall Mount powerline adapters come without a network identifier and encryption key. As a result, when they are plugged into the mains a new PLC network will be created (called public network). It will operate smoothly, but without security configuration.
1. Identify which is the AP adapter in an existing PLC network. The AP adapter always shows its AP indicator ON in green. The other adapters are EPs and their AP indicators will be OFF; 2. Next, press “SYNC/RST” button for around two seconds on the AP adapter until its AP indicator starts blinking.
2.4.3 LED Definitions 220.127.116.11 VPI LED Colour Adapter Status Low Red Orange Green Blinking The low and high throughput thresholds are default to be 6 Mbps and 12 Mbps respectively, and can be redefined by users through the web interface. 18.104.22.168 AP LED When the adapter is configured as Fixed AP , the LED will be on.

Priority Status Default Priority Criterion 1 & 2 Security Status Status You can leave the configuration page anytime by clicking on fhe “Log out” button in the upper right corner of the screen. Shows the default priority for traffic transmission. Shows which criteria are used to classify traffic.
3.4 Change Configuration Page 3.4.1 Overview The configuration pages allow you to change the settings on the wall mount adapter. Any parameters changed here will be stored in the wall mount adapter‘s permanent memory, and at the next startup, will be activated automatically. Any changes will take effect immediately after startup, with the exception of the Network Configuration settings (these require a restart of the wall mount adapter).
• If the wall mount adapter is to be accessed through a router (e.g., in a large office network), the gateway IP needs to be configured. Otherwise, it can be ignored. WARNING: CHANGING AN ADAPTER‘S IP TAKES EFFECT ONLY AFTER A RESTART. YOU MAY WANT TO PLACE A LABEL ON EACH ADAPTER WITH ITS IP ADDRESS, SO YOU DON’T ACCIDENTALLY LOSE THE ABILITY TO ACCESS IT.
If you want to enable 3DES encryption in your network, please select one of the input methods and enter the password. Input methods: ASCII The Corinex AV200 Wall Mount Adapter supports also the stronger AES encryption. In order to enable it, please select AES from the menu and enter the password. Note: If you decide to use the AES encryption, please make sure all powerline adapters in your network are capable of using this type of encryption and it is enabled on all devices.
If you want to configure the wall mount adapter to function as an automatic EP/AP , please select “EP” from the list. If you want the adapter to behave as a Master, select “Fixed AP” from the list. After selecting one, click “OK” to confirm your choice.
The following picture shows an example of two AV200 networks with different Network Identifiers: Communication between adapters (called modems in this picture) is encrypted with a Triple-DES algorithm. The Encryption Key can be set to any string of letters and numbers (Encryption Key field, ASCII or HEX).
22.214.171.124 Network Configuration Your Corinex AV200 Powerline Wall Mount can be configured to use either DHCP (automatic IP address assignment), or a fixed IP . The following parameters are used by the fixed IP configuration. In order for the wall mount adapter to correctly communicate with other devices on the network, it is necessary to define a valid IP address, as well as a proper subnet mask and gateway address.
Adapter Configuration Note: It is strongly advised to turn on the notching function. Power Control is an automatic transmission power control which prevents different networks from overpowering each other. Power Control is turned on only when other networks are detected in the channel. If the transmission strength reaches the isolation point between networks, the transmission power is limited from overpowering the other network.
3.4.6 VLAN Configuration When AV200 Powerline Wall Mount adapters are used for ADSL extension, it is important for the operator to be able to distinguish the type of traffic that each adapter is generating. This is usually done by means of VLAN tagging. The AV200 technology includes the ability to tag all traffic that enters the Powerline network through each adapter’s Ethernet port.
Adapter Configuration After setting both values, please click OK to save the values to NVRAM. The changes will be applied immediately and the LED behavior may change. Several options are available in this form. The first, and easiest to understand and use, is the Default Priority value.
When several traffic flows are sharing the same network, it is sometimes necessary to establish several levels of priority in order to guarantee that bandwidth-sensitive applications like video and telephony function smoothly under network congestion. The traffic classifier is a packet inspector that is able to recognize several patterns in an Ethernet frame, and assign a different priority to each of them.
3.4.9 Tools Clicking on hardware reset button will restart your adapter. The configuration will remain the same, and any changes made in the Network Configuration section will be applied. This means that if you’ve changed the IP address, the adapter will restart with the new IP address.
Adapter Configuration 3.4.10 Flash Upgrade The firmware, the loader and the factory settings (default factory configuration) are stored in Flash memory. To upgrade them, first select the Flash section to update (Firmware, Loader or Factory Settings) and the protocol (FTP or TFTP). Type the IP address of the FTP or TFTP server (Server IP Address field).
2. Save the firmware file in the folder specified in “Current Directory” or click “Browse” and find where the file is saved. 3. Open the Web browser and enter the IP of the adapter to be upgraded. 4. When the page comes up, click on Change configuration. 5.
The adapter connected to the ADSL adapter is the access point. Data and video are delivered through ADSL. The access point must prioritize the video higher than other data, to avoid a jittery image whenever there is a heavy data download. First of all, the Criterion field must be set to Custom, in order to create custom rules for traffic classification.
Video Network Setups 4.1 Introduction An In-Home AV network is made up of an access point (AP) adapter and several end points (EPs). In-Home AV networks can have only one AP . However, several In- Home AV networks can be created in the same space, each of them with its own AP , because each network is isolated by a unique network identifier.
• Public Network - This is the default configuration of an In-Home network. If you do not want to change the settings on your network, the network configuration protocol will configure all the adapters automatically. By default, all adapters are EPs and have a public (empty) network ID. If the protocol does not detect an AP in the channel, it will change an EP to act as an AP .
126.96.36.199 Extending the Internet Connection to an AV200 Powerline Network The next picture shows a more advanced Powerline network with three Corinex AV200 Powerline Ethernet Wall Mount Adapters. This is a common network configuration, where Internet access and digital video are delivered through the same ADSL line.
In multi-network scenarios, such as the one depicted in the picture above, there is a new entity, called the QoS controller. The QoS controller’s role is to assign channel access to the different networks. The QoS controller acts at the same time as the AP of one of the networks.
