Powerline Adapter

In April 2015, Swisscom has introduced a new range of Powerline adapters :

These adapters allow wireless connectivity using existing electric wires, and they fit perfectly for connecting one or more TV-Box that are not in the same room as your router.

These new adapter have the connection feature only, they cannot measure power consumption or remotely switch a device ON/OFF. Another device will allow those features, it will be introduced later. It has the same housing but it is white and green (the connectivity devices are white)


They are available :

  • As a starter kit (pair of adapter) to connect wirelessly one device: the Powerline Connection Kit;
  • As a single adapter to connect wirelessly an additional device: the Powerline Connection Adapter. To use the Powerline Connection Adapter you need to install a the Powerline Connection Kit first.


There is only one LED :

  • Off : no power supply
  • White : Powerline connection OK
  • White blinking : pairing ongoing
  • Red blinking : no Powerline connection
