The D-Link DHP-501AV Powerline AV 500 Adaptor Starter Kit uses your home's existing electrical wiring to create a network or extend your existing network. It turns every power outlet into a possible network connection to access digital media devices, game consoles, print servers, computers, and network storage devices throughout your home. Compliance with the IEEE 1901 standard and backward compatibility with the Homeplug AV ensure that the DHP-501AV can be used with older powerline devices. The DHP-501AV is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to 500 Mbps. This rapid transmission speed makes it ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, it prioritizes Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications do not experience performance glitches while web surfing and downloading files.


Now you can experience high-quality multimedia streaming throughout your home, all through your existing electrical wiring. The DHP-501AV plugs directly into a power outlet, and does not require any additional cables. Extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in the farthest corners of your home, or attach a switch or wireless access point to the adapter for additional connectivity. For convenient setup, an encryption key can be quickly configured with the push of a button. The adapter implements 128-bit AES data encryption to protect the network from unauthorized 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 DHP-501AV incorporates a power saving mode that complies with the European Energy Using Product (EuP) Directive. If no data transmission or reception occurs over a certain period of time, the adapter will automatically go into sleep mode to save power.
