Inside the box, we will find all the typical paperwork like warranty card, easy setup guide, Wi-Fi log on details and so on. Along with both the transmitter and receiver modules, you will receive 2 x 2m white Cat 5e cables to get you started.

The transmitter is very basic with lights on the left of the device along with a “Pair” button to allow for the devices, transmitter, and receiver, to be connected.

Easy notice icons help understand what the flashing lights mean and are of a typical, industry standard. You will also find a plug port, a feature of this kind of passthrough powerline, to ensure your wall plugs are never wasted like with some other similar devices on the market.

One port can be located at the top of the device, please note this is a gigabit network port and should be connected to your router. Details will be explained during set up.

The receiver offers two buttons on its left side, pair, and Wi-Fi. The “Pair” button allows for pairing the transmitter and receiver together. The Wi-Fi button allows for WPS settings to be received from your router for a quicker set up of your WI-Fi based network.

Three gigabit ports can be found at the top of the device which will allow up to 3 devices to be connected to it through any standard network cable but we do suggest using something of a Cat 5e upwards for the best results.
