      I am finding that I am not being connected to the internet. After checking, it appears that the toe bridges are not recognizing eachother. Any suggestions?

              I assume your referring to a set of sling links.

               

              Make sure you have them both plugged directly into power outlets and are NOT using any type of surge/spike or filtered power strips.

               

              As stated in the manual:

              IMPORTANT: Because the Bridge sends data over the power lines of your

              house, plug the Bridge directly into an electrical outlet. Do not plug the device

              into a UPS or power strip with surge protection. The Bridge has its own power

              filter for protection against surges.

               

               

              Are you using the configuration/network utility that shoipped with the sling links? (It's not really necessary; however if being used the mac addresses of both sling components must be set in the utility. If not, the won't communicate.
