I have a pair of Aw1000 Powerline adaptors set up in my house and I’ve just bought another set. How do I link the new two to the old pair
JA: How long have you had your AW1000?
Customer: old pair maybe a year and the new pair a month
JA: What have you tried so far?

Hi Pete

Powerline adapters are simply plug and play devices, but for better secure network, you can pair them through the Pair Button or TL-Link Utility.


To add more adapters to your existing powerline network, just press the pair button on one of the existing network, then press Pair button on the adapter which wants to be joined in the existing network. Simply add them one by one.


Please let me know if you have any further questions on this topic and I'll be happy to help.

Have a good day,

I’ve now got them linked but the name of the router won’t copy across to the extenders when I try to clone the name?
Expert:  Pete replied 5 months ago.

If you use the Pair button it should copy all of the required network information automatically.
