Does the job, what can you say. Works out of the box. On my PC the devices do not appear in the Develo Cockpit software. Develo and I cannot seem to resolve this issue. No big deal as they work just fine.
Beware of the Amazon page for this item, the photo with the adapter in front of the box photo, along with the description "duo" implies that you get two adapters. You don't!!

Well, I originally purchases the dLan 500 WIFI starter kit on offer at a retailer, but realised I actually needed more adapters, so ordered these from Amazon. They were so simple to set up.

IMPORTANT: Make a note of the security ID on each device (NB these are ALL letters no numbers) i.e. ABCD-EFGH-IJKL-MNOP otherwise you will have to unplug (like me) to get the codes for the supplied software!

1) Connect the first Duo adapter (acts as a master) to the router/PC via supplied Network cable
2) Plug new adapter in power outlet, wait until the LED stops flashing
3) For the remaining 500 duo adapters, (which also come with a good quality cable!), simply plug in, press the little button on underside of unit, wait for LED to stop flashing
4) Connect cable from one of the TWO supplied ports to the equipment, and done
5) I also purchased the wireless adapter which has WIFI and a port, this was almost as easy....
6) Simply plugin the WIFI adapter, wait for the WIFI indicator to stop flashing, press the home button, then press the WPS button on the router...wait until all the lights stop flashing, then unplug and put it where you need to get WIFI - they also CLONE the router so it looks like you have a great WIFI signal everywhere...

The software I download from www.devolo.com and click support, download the Cockpit software, this then requires the security keys to detect and allow admin of the devices. It will find them anyway, but the security lets you maintain them. You can also update the firmware for all the devices remotely using this software, and it's all automated :-)

Overall, simple experience, easy to configure, and I get approx 250Mbits per connection which is half advertised speed, but thats over the whole house!

Installed this yesterday in my upstairs office and Windows 7 immediately detected a new network. Pressed the encryption button on each device and, hey presto, done. Happily streaming Netflix Youtube and Lovefilm. File transfer over the network appears to be working without any hitch. Regarding some reviews, stating that it generates a high pitched whine, I can state that I have not noticed any such whine. It is worth noting that you should plug these devices directly into a wall socket and NOT an extension cable or you will notice a sharp drop in speed. Also note, if you have a seperate fuse box for upstairs then this network solution will NOT work for you.
All in all, I am very happy with this product and would not hesitate in recommending it in the future.

Whereas I am happy to state that this Powerline Adaptor easily distributes network and internet access around my home with a minimum of fuss, I am both shocked and annoyed to find out that the adaptor is crippled by an ethernet adaptor which is only 10/100mbps.

To explain, the DLAN 500 Powerline system creates a network within your electricity supply which is *theoretically capable* of transmitting data at 500mbps, but since the ethernet adaptor is only 10/100mbps, the maximum speed which the device will ever transmit data is only 100mbps. This is a bottleneck which can never be overcome.

The main reason I bought these devices was to backup to a NAS (network) drive. When the NAS is connected directly to my computer (gigabit connection), I easily reached transfer speeds of 36MB/sec. When connecting the NAS via the DLAN500 Powerline, I struggled to get 6MB/sec. That's about 1/6th of the speed.

6MB/sec is fine for downloading from the internet or streaming video to any of your devices around the home, but it is completely inadequate for backing up to a NAS!! A 1TB backup would take more than 2 days at this speed, rather than just 7 hours at the faster speed.

Why did Devolo create a device which was so crippled from the offset?

I now see that there are DLAN 650 devices starting to come out which have true gigabit connections, so these should correct the deficiencies of these DLAN 500 devices. It looks like I will have to spend more £££ to upgrade my network, but I should never have had to do this !!

After the first adapter made a loud squealing noise, a replacement was issued by Amazon that appears to be quiet, as usual, excellent service. However, the transmission capabilities of this device are;

Ethernet 10/100 (mbps)
Powerline 200/500 (mbps)

My dLAN 500 AVmini adapters are 1.0 Gbps, something to bear in mind if a 1Gbps network is desirable.
