The DHP-W310AV PowerLine AV500 Wireless N Mini Extender allows you to extend your existing home network to enjoy high-speed and reliable connectivity throughout your home. The PowerLine AV500 Wireless N Mini Extender features both wireless and PowerLine. This allows you to benefit from PowerLine1 networking, compliant with the HomePlug AV standard, that uses your existing home electrical wiring to extend your home network. The wireless ability allows you to increase the area in your home where you can use your wireless devices.
Versatile Hybrid FunctionalityThe PowerLine AV500 Wireless N Mini Extender supports hybrid operation, which combines both wireless and PowerLine, allowing you to enjoy reliable Internet connectivity throughout your home. The DHP-W310AV supports three key hybrid features when used with other D-Link Hybrid routers - channel bonding to combine PowerLine bandwidth with wireless bandwidth for faster data transmission, load balancing to prevent bottlenecks, and failover to automatically transfer the data stream to the other interface if the connection on one interface has any serious problems.
Enhanced PerformanceThe DHP-W310AV PowerLine AV500 Wireless N Mini Extender is capable of high speeds of up to 500 Mbps for PowerLine and 300 Mbps for wireless, enabling you to stream movies, download large files, and enjoy a fast Internet connection for Web surfing. The DHP-W310AV supports the draft IEEE1905.1 standard for better ease of use for hybrid network setup and management. The DHP-W310AV also supports Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service to ensure faster multimedia transmission by prioritizing multimedia data over other kinds of data.
Secure Connections and Ease of UseThe DHP-W310AV features WPA/WPA2 and WEP wireless encryption to ensure a secure wireless network connection. The DHP-W310AV features a Common Connect button to easily set up either a wireless connection through WPS, or create a secure PowerLine connection. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) by PIN is also supported.
1. Power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system. Certain electrical conditions in your home, such as wiring condition and configuration, may affect the performance of this product. Additional D-Link PowerLine AV series products are required to add new devices to the network. A minimum of two D-Link PowerLine AV series products are required to create a network. Connecting this product to a power strip with a surge protector may adversely affect the performance of this product. For best results, plug the adapter directly into a wall outlet.
2. PowerLine AV500 products feature a more efficient processor than current 200 Mbps PowerLine AV products to provide better performance and coverage. Maximum throughput is based on theoretical transmission PHY rate. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of traffic and network overhead, may lower actual data throughput rate. Interference from devices that emit electrical noise, such as vacuum cleaners and hair dryers, may adversely affect the performance of this product. This product may interfere with devices such as lighting systems that have a dimmer switch or a touch-sensitive on/off feature, short wave radios, or other PowerLine devices that do not follow the HomePlug AV standard.3. Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link's 802.11n devices.
