Network Connector guide

No ratings

Network Connectors provide a convenient way to extend a wired connection from your router, without using long cabling. They are a great solution if your TalkTalk TV Box- or any other device that uses a wired connection- is far away from your router.

You get two Network Connectors in a pack. Simply plug them in, connect one to your router and the other to your TalkTalk TV Box (or another device) using the Ethernet cables provided.

 

 

You can request some when you order TalkTalk TV:

  • If you order self-install, they will be delivered along with your TalkTalk TV Box.
  • If you order an engineer installation, the engineer will bring them along when they install your TalkTalk TV box.

If you’ve opted for an engineer Installation, but forgot to order them with your package, just let the engineer know on arrival. We'll set them up and charge them directly to your TalkTalk account.

 

They can be used straight out of the box. 

  1. Plug one Network Connector into a wall socket close to your router.
  2. Connect one end of the Ethernet cable to the yellow Ethernet port on the Network Connector.
  3. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the yellow Ethernet port on the back of your router.
  4. Switch on the power at the socket. If your Network Connector has an on/off button, press it now.
  5. Plug the second Network Connector into a socket close to your TalkTalk TV box or other device.
  6. Connect the other Ethernet cable to the yellow Ethernet port on the bottom of the Network Connector.
  7. Connect the other end of the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on your TalkTalk TV box or other device.
  8. Switch on the power at the socket. If your Network Connector has an on/off button, press it now.
  9. Your Network Connectors are now set up.

You can use as many Network Connectors as you like in your home. 

  1. Plug the new Network Connector you want to add into the wall socket.
  2. On the new Network Connector, press and hold the pair button until all 3 lights blink once.
  3. On the Network Connector already connected to the router, press and release the pair button. The power light will start blinking.
  4. Now press and release the pair button on the new Network Connector. The powerline light will flash green when it's successfully paired.
  5. Follow steps 1-4 to add any additional Network Connectors.
