Can power line adapters work on circuits that use a surge protector/spike guard like this?
NETGEAR does not recommend using power strips, surge protectors, UPS and extension cords with Powerline products
Please tell , Is it mandatory to use a step down convertor with a powerline adapter which is manufactured to suit voltage of another country? or would it work irrespective of such manufacture customization?
Step down transformers are needed to step power down to a usable voltage, if the manufacturer advise to use Step down transformer then follow the guide. I think that powerline networks won't work across transformers?
if they say universal then it should be like Belkin Powerline AV500
Thanks. Please tell , 1) you imply universal would work in any country voltage? 2) How to know from local online malls which model would work for voltage matters? 3) How to know whether a powerline adapter is made for US or EU?
universal can mean that it can work in all countries or some countries, some do ship with Wall Plug Adapters including EU, UK, AU and US ensures that it can be used nearly all over the world.
Please tell , how to know that a model of Powerline adapter , is made for EU , AU , US?
i think nowadays powerline adapters should be universal countries, now how to find out it should be written on the package or manual like Compatible with both 120 volt and 240 volt electrical systems ? Integrated 100V-230V Switching Supply. Also they should provide pine size
UK(UK)-3 pins UK plug with integrated 230V AC power supply.
EU(EUR)-2 pins EU plug with integrated 230V AC power supply.
US(US)-2 pins US plug with integrated 120V AC power supply.
AU(AU)-3pins AU plug with integrated 230V AC power supply
any doubts prior to purchase do contact their support
Can powerline adapter which is imcompatible with voltage of a country 'X' , work in the country 'X'?
For example , a powerline adapter manufactured for USA , work in India? What would be role of step down converter in using USA Pwrline adapter in India? You mentioned V and frequency of three places, so Out of EU , US and UK type which can work in India?
According to BT (http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/10694/~/do-powerline-adapters-work-with-anti-surge-power-strips%3F), "...it is impossible to say which anti-surge protectors will work with Powerline Adapters and which will not".
Thanks. Your inputs have been useful. Please tell whether anti surge protector is same as step down convertor?
A step down transformer is different from a surge protector, and will definitely prevent Powerline signals from getting through. There are two common designs:
I understand. Please tell whether step down convertor is synonym for step down transformer
I assume they are. I don't know.
