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.

Conveniently Connect

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.

Compatibility

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.

D-Link Green

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.

By Paul B TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 July 2010
Format: Electronics Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Here's the situation; You have a router in your study feeding your PC with the internet. You've also got a Blu-ray Player/TV/Playstation 3 etc in the lounge or upstairs and the wireless signal is a bit hit or miss or your equipment just doesn't do wireless. What can you do? Well, you could by miles of Ethernet cable and run it across the walls or floor, or you could just use this 200 Mbps Powerline adaptor kit.

The D-Link DHP 307AV is a simple solution to providing fact broadband around the house. The steps are as simple as you can get:
1) Plug one powerline into the mains near your router.
2) Plug an ethernet cable from the router to the powerline adaptor.
3) Plug the other adaptor into a wall socket near your other equipment, anywhere in the house.
4) Plug an ethernet adaptor from this to your equipment.
5) Turn on.

That's it, no set up required and everything works straight out of the box. It took me 10 minutes from opening the box to having it all set up and working. I've tested the D-Link with another PC, PS3, 360, Humax PVR and a Blu-ray player and all work just as if I'd have plugged in the Ethernet cable straight from the router itself.

What's more, the 200Mbps speed means that you can stream HD movies and other media from a PC to any media player anywhere in the house. My PS3 can easily access all the video and audio on my PC hard drive now, it works perfectly without a hiccup.

There's not much more to say, the units are sturdy and well built without being too bulky, they even seem to work on a 4 point power adaptor, something not all Homeplugs can boast. Definitely worthy of a full 5 stars for ease of use and performance. Recommended.

I am a software developer and I host several FTP sites on a server that was previously located in one of my bedrooms (connected directly to the router: in the same room).

I wanted to move the router downstairs onto the ground floor and the server upstairs into the attic.

I needed a faster, more reliable connection than is available over wireless. I also wanted to be able to access the server elsewhere in the house using a KVM over IP Ethernet extender. After reading quite a few review I chose to buy this product.

I plugged one connector into the wall in the lounge and connected up my router. I plugged the other into a socket in the attic (~50m of mains wiring). I hooked up the server and hit the calibration buttons on both devices. I was presently surprised that the hardware connected almost instantaneously without needing to install the provided software (only useful if you want to set up additional security protocols).

I used [] to investigate the download and upload speeds across the mains network. For comparison I moved the server downstairs and plugged it straight into the router. I was amazed to find almost no speed degradation over ~50m of mains wiring and across 2 floor.

Here are my reported speeds: (Connection type = O2 ADSL2)

Upstairs (Via Powerline Adapter)
DOWN: 20.10MB/S
UP: 3.08MB/S

Downstairs (Direct into Router)
DOWN: 20.12MB/S
UP: 3.12MB/S

Speed Degradation:
DOWN: 0.02MB/S
UP: 0.04MB/S

I would defiantly recommend this product to anyone that has multiple desktop units or wireless problems. I would also like to note that the KVM extender I have works with this product as I am currently controlling the sever upstairs via a keyboard, mouse and monitor located in my lounge!

I Hope you find this review useful!

I spent quite a lot of time researching the web to find the best powerline ethernet adapters about (Oct 2010), and I'm glad I got this one. Easy install, looks good aesthetically and performs very well. Each adapter is on a different power ring and it's got a connection of at least 80Mbps for sure. It comes with 2 ethernet cables also which is useful.

4 stars because none of these powerline ethernet adapter products should be marketting up to 200Mbps etc. when they'll never achieve it.

I bought the cheapo MaxValue Homeplug AV 200 MBPS on Amazon two years or so ago. Homeplugs are great and a huge improvement over wireless - the next best thing to having a proper ethernet cable connection.

After two years of faithful service, my MaxValues fried on me a few days ago. I have looked on Amazon to check for a replacement and instead of ordering the same models, decided to splash an extra £9 for the D-Link DHP-307AV/B 200 MBPS (which cost £67 for a pair instead of £58 or so for the MaxValue). BOY, WHAT AN IMPROVEMENT! The maximum speed I could achieve with the Max Value homeplugs on file transfers between the internal hard drive of my Popcorn Hour streaming device and my Windows PC under the Samba networking protocol was around 2.8 - 3.0 MBPS / second. With the D-Link, I get 4.5 - 4.8 MBPS / Sec (the maximum which the Popcorn Hour can cope with I believe).

The Max Value are OK homeplugs but do yourselves a favour and buy the D-Link. For an extra £9, it's a total no brainer.

I'll keep it short and sweet. I tried homeplugs (the non-av ealier ones) a while back and didn't get much joy, they would only work a very small distance on my home house wiring. I tried them elsewhere (in another home) and they worked better. A bit of Googling suggests that it's down to the amount of electrical interference on your home mains wiring, obviously mine was bad.

I tried these out, had MUCH better success, with connections achieved that I never got with the older ones, however that said, they still worked at slower than Wifi speeds for me.

I never really found ways to improve the noise on your home wiring, so I'm stuck with Wifi, however I don't think these are bad products by any stretch, it's just my particular situation is not ideal for them. The plug are well built, consume low lower, are easy to setup (the setup utility is very simple to use).

I can see these working great for someone that has poor wifi around the house, or dense stone walls etc, as long as their house wiring suits the plugs.
