D-Link DHP-307AV PowerLine AV Starter Kit
The D-Link DHP-307AV kit consists of two PowerLine HomePlug AV network adapters used to distribute Ethernet over standard AC wiring within the home. With network data transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps, the DHP-307AV allows you to connect computers, High-Definition TVs, networking devices, and gaming consoles using the most pervasive medium in your house - the electrical wiring. Share Internet connections and experience smooth file transfers, streaming multimedia, online gaming and more. The PowerLine AV Network Adapter features easy plug-and-play installation and can be connected to any Ethernet-enabled device.
Use Existing Wiring to Create a Home Network
By simply plugging one PowerLine adapter into an existing electrical socket, you can turn every power outlet into a potential network connection, making the DHP-307AV an ideal solution for sharing a high-speed Internet connection or for connecting computers, HD media players, game consoles and Network Attached Storage to your home network. It is also ideal for homes or small offices where concrete walls, successive floors in multi-storied buildings, or other architectural impediments could inhibit a wireless signal*.
200 Mbps Transmission with Quality of Service (QoS)
Delivering data transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps**, D-Link’s PowerLine HomePlug AV provides ample bandwidth for demanding digital home requirements, such as internet TV, smooth HD video streaming, music streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, it prioritises Internet traffic, ensuring that multimedia applications do not experience glitches while web surfing and downloads are in progress. This device provides ample network bandwidth, enabling digital home consumers to tap into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming.
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. In addition to maximum throughput, D-Link’s PowerLine HomePlug AV includes a built-in Quality of Service (QoS) engine that prioritises data packets in order to enhance HD video and audio streaming, online gaming and VoIP calling.
The DHP-307AV plugs directly into a power outlet, and does not require any additional cables. Extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in various rooms throughout your home. With hassle-free plug and play installation, the DHP-307AV is an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.
You can attach a switch or wireless Access Point (AP) to a D-Link PowerLine HomePlug AV Network Adapter, allowing you to connect multiple devices in the farthest corners of your home. Furthermore, D-Link’s PowerLine HomePlug AV implements 128-bit AES encryption for securing your connection and keeping your data safe from intruders. You can set this up easily via the button on the side of the adapter.
Based on the industry-leading Atheros HomePlug AV technology, the adapters are compatible with other brands’ devices based on the same HomePlug AV standard. However, they will not work with devices based on other standards, such as D-Link’s DHP-303/343. But they will co-exist with them, so you don’t need to worry about getting rid of your existing adapters.
The kit is part of D-Link Green, D-Link’s program for providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance: if data transmission or reception does not occur over a certain period of time, the adapters will automatically go into sleep mode to save power. This requires less than 1W, making the adapters among the first of their kind to comply with the European Union guideline on Energy-using Products (EuP), applicable since 7th January 2010.
* Power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system. Additional PowerLine HomePlug AV Ethernet adapters are required to add new devices to the network. ** Maximum throughput based on theoretical data rate. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic and network overhead may lower actual throughput rate.
