hi EE folks
is there anyone here ever used Aztech HL100E HomePlug Ethernet Adaptor?
i got two used ones and tried to connect my study room upstairs and the network switch downstairs. per the instructions
, i have downloaded the PowerPacket Utility from here
the issue is, after installed the utility on NT4 and W7 (run as an admin), i got the same error message saying i don't have compatible Powerline hardware, as shown below.
i got confused as i don't know its actual meaning. does it refer to my home's power line, or the network adapter of the computer (guest computer on VMware), or the Powerline adapter itself?
i got the VM's NIC directly bridged to a physical Gigabit Ethernet adapter with a straight through cable to HL100E's Ethernet port, and the adapter has been powered on at a power point.
any clues please?
