Powerline AV Adapter Kit Software Features
Included on the driver CD is a simple software backend, which allows you to specify the name and password for your network amongst a handful of other settings. The "main" tab of the software automatically scans the network for Powerline devices and lists them. The password, signal quality, actual rate, and MAC address are also displayed.
The privacy tab of the software allows you to create a private network for those wanting additional security. This simply lets you specify a network name, which prevents others from connecting to your network if they lack the name.
The diagnostics tab lists helpful system information, such as the driver in use, the various MAC addresses, the OS, etc. This would aid TRENDnet tech support in case a problem arose. Below this, the history of TRENDnet adapters previously connected to is displayed.
The last tab essentially shows all the license copyright information.
