  7. 7. 2. Installation Guide To install Important : After receiving the C4L6000-ETH, check for any shipping damages on the carton and the system unit before proceeding with any installations. Inspect the cartons for any obvious damage before unpacking. ▪Plan the Installation of Your Coaxial & Powerline Network Note : You will need at least two C4L6000-ETH in order to build a Coaxial/Powerline network connection. 2.1 To connect two IP based devices together in an isolated network you will need the following; ▪ CrossPower C4L6000-ETH (PLC mode)adapter for each device with an Ethernet port ▪ CrossPower C4L6000-ETH (COAX mode)adapter for each IP based device with an Ethernet port
  8. 8. 2.2 To share a cable or DSL connection between IP based devices in different locations you will need the following ; ▪ Cable or DSL modem. ▪ Broadband sharing router. ▪ CrossPower C4L6000-ETH adapter (Bridge mode)connected to the broadband sharing router. ▪ CrossPower C4L6000-ETH(Node mode) adapter for IP cameras, PCs, GameBoxes and peripherals you want to share the broadband connection.
  9. 9. Using the CrossPower C4L6000-ETH(Bridge & Node mode) to share Broadband Internet access through the whole house and to extend the Coax/Powerline Hybrid network as follows.

  11. 11. 4. Appendix (Test COAX/POWERLINE network availability using IPERF software) 4.1 Test configuration & process of Coaxial/Powerline Network using Iperf software; Test the Coax/Powerine Network performance Install the IP camera using Iperf software after completion of Coax/Powerline Network testing After completing the LAPTOP & PLC hardware installation to test Coax/Powerline Network performance using Iperf software, you may need to perform additional steps to ensure that your Coax/Powerline network is fully functional. These steps consist of setting the IP addresses correctly, testing the Coax/Powerline Network using the Iperf software utility to secure your Coax/Powerline Network. Setting the IP Address Windows defaults to setting up your network device to automatically select an IP address. To change the IP address in Windows, follow these steps: ● Open ‘Control Panel’ – ‘Network and Dial up connections’ ● Right click on the Local Area Connection corresponding to the ETH device and select ‘Properties’. ● On the ‘General’ tab, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click ‘Properties’ ● Select ‘Use the following IP address’ ● Enter an IP address on the same subnet as the other Coax/Powerline devices. ● Enter a Subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 ● Click OK ● Click OK to exit the ‘Properties’ window.
  12. 12. Test the Coax/Powerline Network using Iperf software To verify the Coax/Powerline network is working correctly, use the standard “Ping” utility and “Iperf’ network measurement program. ● Ping the IP address of the Coax/Powerline node using the same computer that the node is connected to. If this fails, there is a problem with the network interface. ● Repeat the same process with the other Coax/Powerline nodes on the network. ● If all nodes can ping themselves, try pinging another Coax/Powerline node on the network. If this fails, verify that your IP addresses are on the same subnet. If this is correct, then make sure that the advanced setup and encryption keys are set properly. If this is correct, then most likely, there is a problem with connections on the Coax/Powerline. Try a different Coax connector/AC outlet. ● To verify that high speed communication is possible, run the Iperf.exe program. This program shows the Bandwidth, Delay jitter & Packet loss achieved using the UTP protocol as below. Using the Iperf software details is described in the Iperf user docs of index.html in the DOC folder. 4.2 Setting the IP address
  13. 13. 4.3 IP setting for SERVER
  14. 14. 4.4 IP setting for CLIENT 4.5 Test the Coax/Powerline Network using Iperf software 4.5.1 Run Iperf in SERVER mode as below. iperf -s -u -i 1
  15. 15. To verify that Coax/Powerline Network communication for IP Camera installation is possible, run the Iperf.exe program about 5~10 minute. This program shows the Bandwidth,Delayjitter&PacketlossachievedusingtheUTPprotocol. The technician could find the verified result of Coax/Powerline Network for IP Camera installation whether it is available or not within 5~10minutes. 4.5.2 Run Iperf in CLIENT mode, connecting to an Iperf server running on laptop as below. iperf -c 10.10.10.10 -u -b 60m -t 10000 【IP ADDRESS】 【Powerline Network Bandwith for testing】 【Time(sec.)】
  16. 16. Important: Because the PLC Bridge(Model C4L5200-ETH) in the CLIENT location sends data over the Powerline Network, it is recommended that you plug it directly into a wall power outlet. Do not plug the device into a UPS or power strip with surge protection. The C4L5200-ETH has its own power filter for protection against surges.
