Advanced Configuration Utility for the PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter

This article will explain how to make advanced configuration for the PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter.  Here you can set priority levels for the different types of traffic such as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls or streaming video.

To perform the advanced configuration for the PowerLine AV Ethernet Adapter, follow the steps below:

Step 1:
Double-click the PLE200 icon to open the Configuration Utility

 

Step 2:  Click the Advanced tab.


 

Step 3:
At the Priority Mapping section, configure CAP Settings.  Tick either VLAN Tags or TOS Bits check box.

 


NOTE:  There are four levels of Channel Access Priority (CAP).  The Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) tags and Type of Service (TOS) bits can specify eight levels of user priority that have to be mapped to the four levels of CAP.

Packets matching the VLAN tag or TOS bit priority will be assigned the corresponding CAP that you have selected.

If both VLAN tags and TOS bits are enabled, VLAN tags will override TOS bits. You can also set the default priority mapping of packets that do not have VLAN tags or TOS bits.

The following table shows the factory default settings for VLAN tags and TOS bits:

 VLAN Tag User Priority Default CAP PriorityTOS Bit User Priority Default CAP Priority 
 0CAP1 0 CAP1
 1CAP0 1 CAP1
 2CAP0 2 CAP2
 3CAP1 3 CAP3
 4CAP2 4 CAP3
 5CAP2 5 CAP3
 6CAP3 6 CAP3
 7CAP3 7 CAP3

Step 5:
Select the appropriate CAP setting: CAP3, CAP2, CAP1, or CAP0.

NOTE: CAP3 being the highest CAP priority.

Step 6:
For Unicast frames, select the appropriate CAP setting:  CAP3, CAP2, CAP1, or CAP0.

Step 7:
For Multicast and Broadcast frames, select the appropriate CAP setting: CAP3, CAP2, CAP1, or CAP0.
