I've been reading a bit about the Powerline specifications, and I got the impression that all the equipment that has the HomePlug AV certificate should interact with similar equipment from another vendor.
I'm trying to make it work, but I'm having some problems. I'm using 2 Lindy PowerLine adapters (that, naturally, can connect to each other), and I have another couple of adapters, from SMC. If I connect one of the SMC to the mains, it won't connect to the other 2 (e.g. the SMC is isolated from the rest of the network).
I've tried the "config utility" that is provided by different vendors (Power Packet utiliy), but it's very limited and I can't do much with it.
Shouldn't all this be "plug and play"? Or is it all just "marketing talk", and the equipments won't talk to each other? Does anyone have a setup like this (HomePlug AV equipment from different vendors, together on the same PowerLine network)?
Thank you for your attention.
