Question regarding TL-WPA8631P Powerline adapters

Question regarding the following article.

[OpenWrt Wiki] TP-Link TL-WPA8631P v3

Do I need to install OpenWRT on both the devices? Master and slave?


One device could be enough, but you might have to make sure they use the same fw for the power line part.

Wouldnt hurt doing both? As I want VLANs and Trunks etc.

Also when adding the button script, the pair button still does not work?

Any ideas?

I'd do both, but that's me.

No idea about the button, I don't own the device.

The only issue is, there is NO way to factory reset the other unit, there is no reset pin and I cannot find the IP address.

Its a TL-PA8010P and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to login to the unit!

If I could flash it, im sure id be away laughing!

The TL-PA8010P is a simple layer 2 Wired-Ethernet-to-PLC bridge, it is not a complex router or Linux based etc. No custom firmware is needed on it.

You can configure it using TPLink tpPLC Utility.
