    This sounds like a hardware fault. Take out the adapter and leave it out for a few minutes, then plug it back in. If the problem persists, take it back to the vendor. It should still be under warranty.

      Thanks. Please tell whether any model / make / brand of Powerline adaptor can work with "Zyxel 4201 unit of a pair"?

      Pretty much any adapter that is "AV standard" (e.g. AV200, AV500) will work. For best results, look for one that's AV500. If the specs state that it is IEEE 1901 compatible then so much the better, but even if that detail is missing, it should work.
