I recently installed a powerline network using the PLTK300 kit. Everything works fine until I turn on the overhead Flourescent Light fixture in the room. These fixtures use an electronic instant-on Ballast. When 'On', the network loses connection, (the blue 'home' lamp on the adapter extinguishes), and the network is broken. As soon as the Overhead Flourescent lights are yurned-off, the network is re-established, and the blue lamp on the adapter illuminates.
Is there an easy, readily available way to shield the interference caused by the electronic ballast? Otherwise, I am going to have to replace the flourescents with incandescents.
Thank you in advance!

The circuits are not affected by the use of the Flourescent fixtures. I believe that the interference is electromagnetic. Anyway, I will post my experience as sooon as I replace the flourescent fixtures with incandescent ones.
Thanks for your interest.
