HomePlug PL-85PE & NeverWire 14 powerline adapters - How to config & work together ?


Standard Member

I need some help with regards to configuring the HomePlug PL-85PE so that it can work along with the legacy NeverWire 14.

I've had the NeverWire 14 units for a couple of years but just recently, one of them died on me. So I've gone and purchased a HomePlug PL-85PE adapter (85Mbps) on the understanding that it's backward compatible.

The Neverwire units worked straight out of the box - no setup/configuration required. I was under the impression that the PL-85PE unit would be the same.

So how do you get these two devices working together ? I've contacted Solwise support and they've informed me that the Neverwire unit needs to have it's security settings defaulted back to the original setting (secure light flashes every 5 secs). This apparently sets the password to be HomePlug. I've done this, but I still can't get the two units to talk to each other.

I've also attempted to use the PowerPacket software that comes with the PL-85PE - but the software is unable to find the adapter - when it's connected to a hub and when it's connected directly to the PC.

So I'm currently at a loss as to what else I can try. Any suggestions gratefully received!
