    TL-PA8010P tpPLC Utility No Device Connected

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Hello -

    I have a powerline kit in my home. The connection has been disconnecting and reconnecting and now the adapters don't show up in the Utility software.
    AV1200 Gigabit Passthrough Powerline Starter Kit
    TL-PA8010P KIT V2

    Today the TP Utility shows the message: "No device connected." so none of the two powerline adapters show up.
    I uninstalled the utility software and re-installed after downloading the latest .exe from:

    What can I do to get the adapters to show up?

    Check this computer is plugged well into the adapter with the third Ethernet light on.
    Disable the firewall and anti-virus software on this computer or change another computer may help

    Use a new network name, then start adding back devices with their own pwd and make sure their network name is the one you just choosed.

    I have the same problem (similar). I can see my devices in tp-utility sometimes but after maybe 10-15 seconds they will disconnect (and I see "No device connected"). I have noticed that if I interact (change something and save) with my router (DLinkDIR-868L) it seems the tp-utility will wake up and show my devices again for 10-15 seconds.
    And, I cannot get any connection to the network through my devices. These problems all started after upgrading to the latest firmware in my router.
    My stuff:
    router - Dlink DIR868L
    Tp-link - TL-WPA8630P-Kit (v1)

    disable power-saving mode and enable PLC-to VDSL mode. Check the circuit environment.
    Or degrade the router

    What kind of advice is that? Cut speed back to half, and then it'll work? Guess what: It won't.
