I purchased three powerline AP's to play with and I am running into a problem. I can get the devices to connect over the power lines, but I cannot get them to be managed by CAPsMAN unless they are connected via ethernet to the main router. I should say that I have to connect them at least once, and they register and show up as remote caps. BUT as soon as I move them to the room where they need to live only the ethernet port works, they never register with caps.
I tried to do a config reset, which works to default the config, leaving the connection over the power line intact. But when you use quickset to select CAP it shows wireless controlled by CAPsMAN, but it never registers and does not work.
Is this expected? Do I have something wrong in the config? There doesn't seem to be a great deal of info on what is supposed to work and what does not work.
