    hey i'm not "new" but I haven't posted because I could find the solution to all my problem using the "search", but not this one!

    so I have an rt-n16, which is awesome and is running great.
    I use it for Wifi for three PC's and a couple of phones, all works well.
    I thought I would be smart and get a powerline network for my PS3 seeing as it doesn't do so well with streaming "the medias" and is honestly really laggy in games (due to distance from router). Before on the WIFI my ps3 could be seen by all 3 computers and it could see all, but now since the powerline it is blind? why? I tried every setting that could apply.
    PS3 can be seen on the router and it has Internet but no "talky talky" with the other computers any more.


    they are all on the same "Subnet Mask"

    on a side note my win7 64bit get this message when i try to use the truoble shooting wizard
    temporary files
    my pc

    any help would be great thanks

    Can you ping the PS3's address from the other machines? Sounds like a firewall issue of some kind (perhaps the PS3 got a different DHCP lease?).

    i pinged it no problem! this is confusing

    i have it on the Static DHCP list? could that be the issuse?

    i have tried without firewall and with antivirus off still nothing

    plus it was working with the firewall on before

    the only UPnP options i could find were under the port forwarding and there was no Advertisement Time To Live anywhere

    I guess this guys may have the answers for Powerline adapter Issue

    I recently watched these videos in YouTube. It looks like these guys may have the answers to all the problems plaguing PLC adapters! I am convinced that there is no trick but you should see it for yourself.

    Not sure what to say here - I am running a _very_ similar setup (using PowerLine HD) with no issues. Latency is ironically slightly higher with PLC than WDS, but very consistent performance.

    Hmm - "filters" - but no description of how these filters are able to magically filter out interference from on top of the wanted signals. In fact nothing at all except countless repetition. I did not find any other article to back up any of the claims either. Curious.
