Insert the stand into the side panel, and then place PLTS200) the Powerline Adapter on a level surface near an electrical outlet. Ethernet 1-4 These Ethernet ports (1, 2, 3, 4) connect to computers or other network devices. Power The Power port connects to the powerline end of the power cord. Placement Options There are three ways to place the Powerline Adapter. The first way is horizontal placement on a surface. The second way is vertical placement on a stand. The third way is wall- mounting. Horizontal Placement NOTE: When the Powerline Adapter is on the stand, the Power port is closest to the stand. Place the Powerline Adapter on a level surface near an electrical outlet. Wall-Mounting Placement The Powerline Adapter has four wall-mount slots on its back panel. The distance between two adjacent slots is 60 mm (2.36 inches). Two screws are needed to mount the Powerline Adapter. Suggested Mounting Hardware 2-2.5 mm 4 mm 1-1.5 mm †Note: Mounting hardware illustrations are not true to scale. NOTE: Linksys is not responsible for damages incurred by insecure wall-mounting hardware. Follow these instructions: 1. Determine where you want to mount the Powerline Adapter. Make sure that the wall you use is smooth, flat, dry, and sturdy. Also make sure the location is within reach of an electrical outlet. 2. Drill two holes into the wall. Make sure the holes are 60 mm (2.36 inches) apart. Powerline Network Adapter 4
    • Chapter 2 Product Overview 3. Insert a screw into each hole and leave 3 mm (0.12 inches) of its head exposed. 4. Maneuver the Powerline Adapter so the two wall- mount slots line up with the two screws. 5. Place the wall-mount slots over the screws and slide the Powerline Adapter down until the screws fit snugly into the wall-mount slots. 60 mm Wall Mounting Template Print this page at 100% size, and cut along the dotted line. Check the template’s accuracy by measuring the distance between the wall-mount slots with a ruler. This distance should be 60 mm. Then place the template on the wall to drill precise spacing.

This license, your freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU the GNU Lesser General Public License, applies to certain General Public Licenses are intended to guarantee your designated libraries, and is quite different from the freedom to share and change free software—to make ordinary General Public License. We use this license for sure the software is free for all its users. certain libraries in order to permit linking those libraries into non-free programs. This license, the Lesser General Public License, applies to some specially designated software packages—typically When a program is linked with a library, whether libraries—of the Free Software Foundation and other statically or using a shared library, the combination of authors who decide to use it. You can use it too, but we the two is legally speaking a combined work, a derivative suggest you first think carefully about whether this license of the original library. The ordinary General Public or the ordinary General Public License is the better strategy License therefore permits such linking only if the entire to use in any particular case, based on the explanations combination fits its criteria of freedom. The Lesser General below. Public License permits more lax criteria for linking other code with the library. When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom of use, not price. Our General Public Licenses We call this license the “Lesser” General Public License are designed to make sure that you have the freedom because it does Less to protect the user’s freedom than to distribute copies of free software (and charge for this the ordinary General Public License. It also provides service if you wish); that you receive source code or can other free software developers Less of an advantage over get it if you want it; that you can change the software and competing non-free programs. These disadvantages are use pieces of it in new free programs; and that you are the reason we use the ordinary General Public License informed that you can do these things. for many libraries. However, the Lesser license provides advantages in certain special circumstances. To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid distributors to deny you these rights or to ask you For example, on rare occasions, there may be a special to surrender these rights. These restrictions translate to need to encourage the widest possible use of a certain certain responsibilities for you if you distribute copies of library, so that it becomes a de-facto standard. To achieve the library or if you modify it. this, non-free programs must be allowed to use the library. A more frequent case is that a free library does the same For example, if you distribute copies of the library, job as widely used non-free libraries. In this case, there is whether gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients little to gain by limiting the free library to free software all the rights that we gave you. You must make sure that only, so we use the Lesser General Public License. they, too, receive or can get the source code. If you link other code with the library, you must provide complete In other cases, permission to use a particular library in non- object files to the recipients, so that they can relink them free programs enables a greater number of people to use with the library after making changes to the library and a large body of free software. For example, permission to recompiling it. And you must show them these terms so use the GNU C Library in non-free programs enables many they know their rights. more people to use the whole GNU operating system, as well as its variant, the GNU/Linux operating system.
