Hello, I recently bought a powerine adapter Tp-Link branded "TP-Link TL-WPA7510 KIT AV1000" for my bedroom since the router is far away. Then I installed it and it worked well, but an hour later, the power went out, but only in my room and nowhere else in the house. Then to try, I changed the adapter's location and that room then lost power after some time. What can I do to fix this ? Thank you very much. :)
 
I assume you mean the circuit breaker is being tripped. That means you have a very defective powerline unit.

The powerline device basically uses the wires as a radio antenna. It of course need to draw power from the outlet but I doubt it takes much more power than a charger for a cell phone.

Just curious...do you have GFCI breakers in your panel? If so then it might be hyper-sensitive to the activity the adapter is causing on the ground wire.
