The PowerLine AV 500 Passthrough Adapter (DHP-500AV) turns every power socket into a possible wired network connection, by extending your existing network using the electrical wiring in your home. This adapter has an electrical socket built in, so you don't need to worry about running out of sockets.
The adapter plugs directly into a power outlet (power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system, at least one additional PowerLine AV 500 Adapter is required to create a network), so you can extend your home network by connecting one adapter to your router and plugging another adapter (sold separately) into the room you want to extend your connection to. For convenient setup, an encryption key can be quickly configured at the push of a button on the device, to protect the network from unauthorized wire tapping. With hassle-free plug and play installation, the DHP-P500AV is an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.
The PowerLine adapter is capable of delivering wired data transfer rates of up to 500 Mbps. Advanced technology built into this device makes it more resistant to electrical interference from other household appliances, so users can fully benefit from maximum transmission speeds. This makes it ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, its Quality of Service (QoS) Engine prioritizes Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications do not experience glitches while web surfing and downloads are in progress.
Based on the industry-leading PowerLine Alliance technology, the DHP-P500AV is 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 DHP-P500AV 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 adapter will automatically go into sleep mode to save power.
