Share

The D-Link DHP-P306AV PowerLine Homeplug AV passthrough adapter used to distribute Ethernet over standard AC wiring within the home. Each adapter has an electrical socket built in, so you don’t need to worry about running out of sockets!


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-P306AV 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 Passthrough 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, such as D-Link’s DHP-306AV/307AV. 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 in their category 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.
