No.3 The easy-setting might be failed depends on AC extension cord. [PLC Adaptor :FAQ]
(2006/03/28)
Answer... A PLC adaptor is designed to reduce the communication performance in order to prevent wrong registration to neighbor's PLC. Accordingly, the easy-setting may be failed with an extension cord which is connected by devices with noise, or The power strip which absorbs the signal of PLC by itself.
 
Please plug them to wall outlet directly. also we recommend you not to connect any other appliance with noise to the wall outlet.
