I just bought a new powerline adapter (tp-link av2000) in order to connect our network to a basement and am having bizarre issues. The configuration is as follows: 1. Cable Modem acting as a gateway -> 2. Server/router running pfsense (WAN)...also a LAN feed to -> 3. Dell 8 port gb switch 4. From switch, connections to a. desktop pc b. older, pre-existing powerline adapter that feeds a desktop in another room (no issues here) c. wireless ap d. newly purchased powerline adapter (tp-link) that feeds a few computers in the basement Everything works fine (except of course the computers in the basement) without the new powerline adapter plugged in (4d). Once I plug this in, everything works fine, including being able to access the network and internet from computers in the basement. But, after about 2-5min., the network freezes up and I can no longer ping any machines on the network and the internet does not work. I tried many different combinations to no avail. Once I unplug the new powerline adapter, everything is back to working almost instantly.Does anybody have any ideas what might be going on?
I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
