Description

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.

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 signal1.

200 Mbps transmission with Quality of Service (QoS)
Delivering data transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps2, D-Link's PowerLine Homeplug AV provides ample bandwidth for demanding digital home requirements, such as watching Internet TV or streaming digital music in any room. 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
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 adapter will automatically go into sleep mode to save power. This requires less than 1W, making the adapter among the first of its kind to comply with the European Union guideline on Energy-using Products (EuP), applicable since 7th January 2010.

1 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.
2 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.

At £42 a pair these are great value. If you have any WiFi coverage issues and/or need to stream HD video then these are perfect! Pros: - Works out of the box - Latest PowerLine standard so compatible with other makes and current D-Link range (not backward compatible) - Decent throughput compared with older models - Look fairly smart - Great value - Eco-friendly Cons: - No in-line socket so you lose a wall socket - Only one network port - 100Base-TX port so max 100Mb real throughput (fine for most applications, and better and more reliable than WiFi) - Port is on the side not bottom and the unit is a quite bulky, so may have issues with placement and unsightly network wiring - Windows only set-up (no Mac/Linux), but not required unless you want to change the default encryption key for security Please note: - If no power socket is a deal breaker, go for the £63 DHP-P307AV/B (even bulkier though!) - For real throughput above 100Mb go for the gigabit port DHP-501AV/B or DHP-P501AV/B

At £41 a pair (not the original price), these are very good value. I have used D-Link for years and their products are generally very well built and reliable. If you have any problems with poor WIFI coverage or streaming HD video/audio then these will do the job!

Pros:
- Works out of the box
- Uses the latest powerline standards so is compatible with other makes and current D-Link range (not backward compatible)
- Decent throughput compared with older models
- Look fairly smart
- Very good value at £41
- Eco-friendly

Cons:
- No in-line power socket so you lose a wall socket
- Only one network port
- Network port located on the side not the bottom and the unit is a little bulky, so you may have issues with placement and unsightly network wiring
- Windows only set-up software (no Mac/Linux), but set-up not required unless you want to change the default encryption key for security
