Wi-Fi, Wherever You Want It

dLAN 500 WiFi technology combines unobtrusive design with the best Internet connection.

The integrated wireless LAN also provides complete Internet coverage to every nook and cranny. Smartphones, tablets and laptops have full-strength coverage right from the start without any problems. An additional terminal device can be connected at any time (such as a Smart TV or game console) using the additional fast Ethernet connection.

Why dLAN 500 WiFi Is Better Than a Wireless Repeater

In the dLAN 500 WiFi, devolo uses the home power lines as internet connection, thereby stable and fast. Hence, any plug socket that the dLAN 500 WiFi is plugged in gives full bandwidth of the DSL connection. In contrast to a wireless repeater: it only carries out a previously weak signal. The result: Poorer wireless connection.

Excellent product (I bought two), as I suspect there's a RSJ in the wall which is interfering with the signal from my router to where we normally sit & watch TV etc.

I have setup both units (1 upstairs & 1 downstairs), with the same SSID, now my wireless signal strength throughout the house is so strong & rock-steady, that I have turned-off wireless on my router (a Virgin SuperHub 2)

I've used Devolo products before, so I didn't bother with the paper setup guide or the stupid micro-dvd (also in the box)
I downloaded the easy-to-use Devolo Cockpit software, and also upgraded the firmware on both my units.

Just a word of advice - you'll probably need a magnifying-glass, as each Devolo unit has a 16-digit "Security Key" printed in small on the back of the unit (which you can't see once it's plugged-in to the wall), and you'll need to type this key into the Cockpit application to add the unit to your network - watch out for "O"'s, "Q"'s and "D"'s it's sometimes hard to see the difference.

Fine-tuning my setup was a bit more complicated as I allow/block access to my network by MAC address, and each of these units has three (Yes, 3) MAC addresses - 1 for Wireless, 1 for Wired (Lan), and 1 for "Internal communication" (even the 1st-line Devolo Support didn't know that!)

n.b This product does not extend your router's existing wireless signal, You must already have another Devolo unit feeding your (wired) internet signal into your mains wiring, which this unit then extracts (at a convenient location), and turns into a wireless signal

I hope this helps

Bought to extend existing Devolo 200 network, which has been running for over a year. Set-up simple and straightforward. Works as promised - good performance and reliability. Highly recommended.

Does exactly what it says - plug it in, press the button, joins existing Devolo secure network. Config thru the Cockpit is easy of you give the device an IP address and configure it directly - either way very easy.

I have a number of Devolo dLan devices but this is th first one to have wi fi. It works really well and utilising BT Infinity I can get much further coverage than with just the Home Hub wi fi.

Theres also a good guarantee on Devolo products - they have just replaced a standard unit for me without any argument.

I already have a dLAN 200 network with 3 devices plugged in which works well. I decided to extend my network by adding a wifi dLAN 500. I plugged it in and although the green wifi light came on, I could detect no wifi signal. I installed the Cockpit app and could see and configure the device settings from there - just no wifi. I emailed Devolo support who said the device must be faulty and to send it back.

Amazon swiftly sent me a replacement but the same problem happened. I could see the adapter in the Cockpit app but no wifi signal was produced.

This time I phoned Devolo support who said that they had had this problem before, and the customer had then tried the dLAN 500 at a friend's house where the wifi signal was immediately available. They advised me to try my adapter out at a friends house to see if I could get wifi by plugging it into somebody else's network but not my own.

I did so (with the friend who had first recommended devolo adapters to me) and the adapter worked perfectly and immediately. Devolo support told me to send the device back as they had no solution to this problem although they were aware of it.

Some wifi adapters just won't send out a signal in some households but they do not know why.

Devolo support suggested that I could try the stronger (and more expensive) dLAN 500 wireless, but after having had to return two dLAN adapters, I decided not to bother.

I have given 3 stars because support for my problem was swift and helpful, but they couldn't resolve the problem. It is a shame because my other devolo adapters are brilliant.

This is really easy to install; however, I hadn't realised that you also need the Devolo dLAN 500 Duo Plus Adapter, which needs to be connected to your router first. Now that I have installed both, there's wifi everywhere in the house.

I have Sky which uses a wholly rubbish wireless router, Sky Support are inept at providing a solution. I purchased Devolo which resolved my frustration. As for Devolo, their system is well designed, really easy to set up and to understand. Their website support is very comprehensive. My Devolo system now consists of both the old dLan 200 and the newer dLan 500. They work seamlessly with each other. Devolo - I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them - a fine example of great German engineering.
