If you look at the scenario image above this illustrates a typical wiring layout. In this example the twisted pair wire used is an active telephone wire which has three extensions running from the same PSTN (phone) line. In this example (this might be distributing the internet to several rooms in a large house) the first Twisted Pair home plug unit takes a network cable from the internet source modem/router. In this example this happens to be at the same point where the main telephone line comes in (as it often will be where the broadband is coming as ADSL over the main phone line) so the telephone line connects to the TEL port on the Twisted Pair unit (if this IS a phone line which carries ADSL then you need to ensure that the phone line connection is made through a DSL splitter). Then the wiring to each telephone extension connects via the PLC port on the home plug device. At each extension, to convert back to a network and phone connection you connect the active telephone wire to the PLC port. The telephone at the extension connects to the TELK port and the network connection to the LAN port.

If you have an extension where you want to connect a phone to the active line but don't need a network connection (so the expense of installing a Twisted Pair Homeplug unit would be a waste) then a quality DSL splitter (note the word 'quality') can be used to isolate off the telephone signals from the extension wire (as illustrated above).

Customer comment
'...... may I say that we found the 2 wire ethernet PL-TP-E500's to be a brilliant piece of kit. Easy to install and the connection over approx. 180M is running at 100MB.' Noel, Reseller Customer
