Some Confusion need clarification
« on: December 19, 2015, 09:09:35 AM »
Looking at getting a TED Pro Home. I have a question though. As I understand it and have seen a few user pics the TED gateway plugs into a TP-Link that sends the signals via PLC. Is there any reason I couldn't forgo the TP-Link and just plug directly into my LAN. I already have my utility room wired with g-bit Ethernet since my server sits in there as well. ???

This may help if you are trying to use Ethernet instead of PLC

Actually I think I figured out what I need to do with PLC.  I have a dedicated outlet just off of the panel that is on its own breaker. That will be where I power the MTU. Then the Gateway will plug into that outlet thus on the same phase. Since the only other device on that outlet is my sump pump there should not be any interference in the PLC communication. its literally 4' away from the panel. I can then connect the gateway to my router with a cat5e cable.
