HI all, I'm having the Powerline Network Adaptor Problem on 750i Master system setup.On the install it's giving me a "Powerline Network Adaptor Problem" and tells me to make sure I'm plugged into the wall and that the Cat5 line is plugged into the router. On the installation program I can see an upside-down image from my camara which is in another room. (If someone walks in front of the camara they are upside down).
I'm installing software on a WinXP PC that is wirelessly connected to my Netgear router. My router has WPA key but I have not been asked to input anything into the Logitech softwary so I'm guessing I don't need to program these devices with my network password, but not sure if it might be contributing?
I'm running one Logitech adaptor from the wall plug to the router and have LEDs that I think are saying things are OK, but not sure what they should be saying:
Top of the adaptor:
blinking blue light - shows network traffic
solid green light - link to power supply
Bottom of adaptor:
blinking green light - traffic and data is flowing
solid yellow light. - connection with ethernet / LAN
The wall adaptor to my camara has the same LED lights.
The light on the front of the camara is solid red (which I interpret as OK - ready to record), and when I walk in front of the camara it blinks red (recording). The little light on the bottom of my camara (at the base next to the ethernet plug) is solid pink. not sure if that means good or bad.
I've tried flipping the plugs from upside down / rightside up.
I've moved the camara to several places, but the plug that it's in is the only one where my PC has recognized it so far.
Should the fact that my PC is connected wirelessly to the router be an issue? (I have another PC directly hardwired into the router, but it is older and doesn't have the specs to run the Logitech software.)
Is it possible the system is OK despite the "Powerline Network Adaptor Problem" error?
Any idea on why the image from the camara is upside down? (camara is in base with ethernet cable coming out of the bottom).
Again, I tried the camara in several wall plugs in the house and this one is the only one where the network recognizes it so far. I don't have a huge house, but wondering it that's telling me something?
Any ideas are appreciated.

For the flipped image have you looked at the camera settings in the software? Under camera settings->advanced there is an orientation check box that may have been checked.
Regarding the powerline, are you trying to install two cameras and only one can be seen or are you worried about powerline performance of your one camera? If you run the diags and you're getting anything above 20mbps then you should be OK. I've had a couple cameras at this level of connection running for months without problems. If you really want great connectivity an alternative install is to use a POE router and directly wire the cameras to your network.

thank you. You're right. Both "Flip" and "Mirror" were checked.
My Commander still gives the powerline network adaptor problem during the install, but now my image is at least right side up.
thanks for your post. I had no idea what to check - it says 14580 kbps for camara1, the only one on my system right now.
The only reason I'm woried about the Powerline Network Adaptor Problem error is my system fails to pass the tests upon startup of the program. At the initial setup it gives me the option to keep retesting the system and I can't get the "powerline" error to go away without just clicking cancel . It makes me think something's wrong but I don't know what.
I'll have to check out POE ethernet.
