I have just started living in a shared house with walls that are such that the wifi signal doesn't reach all over the house so I have just bought a set of max digital power line adapters to use with a macbook pro mid 2012. They have 3 lights which are power, ethernet and data. When I plugged them in after the initial start up sequence the power light was mainly solid but flashed occasionally and the ethernet and data lights went mad flashing continuously.
When I tried to load a web page it took about 10 minutes to load a page. After a little investigation I found that the person at the other end of the house had the same solution using a different brand of power line adapters. I unplugged his network cable from the router and my connection burst into life so I'm pretty sure that there is too much interference between the two sets of adapters.
Is it well known that two sets of power line adapters won't work on the same network or is it a difference brands/ models of adapter? Can I change any settings to deconflict the problems that I am seeing?
Apologies if I haven't given enough information but would appreciate anyone offering advice.
