NP204 - Why is the signal strength so Poor?

Share |

Case:

  1. Your local HomePlug device is too far away
  2. There may be other devices on the same power circuit that are generating excessive noise.
  3. Your local HomePlug device isnt working properly

Fix:

  1. Plug it directly into your computer or move the plug closer to your computer
  2. Close down the utility and leave the power unplugged from the device for 5 seconds, now plug it back in and wait 30 seconds, now run your utility again.
  3. If the problem is noise related, try turning other devices off until the signal strenght is OK.

* In some cases, restarting your computer will help solve this problem, too.
