Convenient and secure setup
The two adapters in the DHP-501AV kit plug directly into a power outlet1, and do not require any additional cables, so you can extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in the farthest corners of your home. For convenient setup, an encryption key can be quickly configured at the push of a button on the device, to protect the network from unauthorised wire tapping. With hassle-free plug and play installation, the DHP-501AV is an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.
The PowerLine AV 500 Adapter is capable of delivering wired data transfer rates of up to 500 Mbps. Advanced technology built into these adapters makes them more resistant to electrical interference from other household appliances, so users can fully benefit from the maximum transmission speeds. This makes them ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, the Quality of Service (QoS) Engine prioritises Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications do not experience glitches while web surfing and downloads are in progress. This kit provides ample network bandwidth, enabling Digital Home consumers to tap into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming.
Based on the industry-leading PowerLine Alliance technology, the adapters in the DHP-500AV Adapter are compatible with other brands’ devices based on the IEEE 1901 standard. It is also compatible with devices implementing the former PowerLine AV standard, such as D-Link’s DHP-306AV/-307AV, DHP-P306AV/-P307AV, and DHP-W306AV/-W307AV.
The PowerLine AV 500 Adapter is part of D-Link Green, D-Link’s program for providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance: if data transmission does not occur over a certain period of time, the adapters will automatically go into sleep mode to save power.
