The Powerline AV 500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit from D-Link uses your home’s existing electrical wiring to extend your Internet connection, turning every power outlet into a high-speed network connection. This lets you access the Internet in rooms that are further away from your main router, boosting the performance of online gaming and making video calls a more seamless experience.
Compliant with the HomePlug AV standard, it provides network access to your computers, game consoles, televisions and any other Internet-enabled devices throughout your home. Its compact design allows the mini adapters to fit discreetly into your power outlet without blocking adjacent power sockets.
Data transfer rates of up to 500 Mbps are ideal for bandwidth-intensive applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP phone calls and lag-free online gaming experiences. This device provides ample network bandwidth, enabling you to tap into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming. Additional Quality of Service (QoS) support prioritises multimedia traffic over other types of traffic on your network connection, ensuring faster transmission.
They also plug directly into a power outlet without the use of additional cables. Extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in the furthest corners of your home, or attach a switch or wireless access point to the adapter to connect even more devices.
