Chapter 3 How to Use the Security/Reset
This chapter describes how to use the Security/Reset pushbutton to add new
devices into or remove devices from a HomePlug AV logical network (AVLN). You
can monitor the operation progress and results by observing the Power LED status.
3.1 Forming a HomePlug AV logical network
Devices A and B with different NMK (Network Membership Key used to
authenticate/access) values are connected to the same powerline. Users want
to use them to form a logical network.
Forming a HomePlug AV logical network
Do as follows to form a logical network:
1. Press the Security/Reset pushbutton on device A or B for 5-8 seconds. The
device will reset and restart with a random NMK.
2. Press the Security/Reset button on device A for less than 3 seconds.
3. Within 30 seconds, press the Security/Reset button on device B for less than
4. Wait for connection to complete.
The power indicator on both devices will flash evenly at 1 second intervals until
the operation succeeds or fails. If the connection succeeds, the Power and Data
indicators on both devices illuminate steadily. If the connection fails, the Power
indicators on both devices keep steady on, but the Data indicators on both
devices are off. In that case, repeat steps 1-4.
