ww.telent.net/2019/5/23/config there, don't say I never give you anything. although do, obviously, feel free to point out that it's never the thing you want

github.com/ffainelli/faifa will do it. Blog post describing exactly how (the man page is, frankly, awful even for a unix tool) shortly forthcoming

Bought a single powerline av adaptor on eBay to add to the existing pair, after cursory research said they all interoperate. Turns out to have no buttons on it, how do I even get it to pair?
