What You Can Do with the PowerLine AV 500 Adapter
Connect to Anything, Anywhere: PowerLine Meets Your Digital Demands.
Run your desktop and multiple laptops off your wireless router upstairs, and simultaneously power and prioritize bandwidth for your entire digital entertainment center in the basement. With a PowerLine AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit you can extend an existing PowerLine network to deliver 500 Mbps speed and connectivity over the existing wiring of your building's electrical system. HDTVs, the Boxee Box by D-Link, Blu-Ray Players, network storage drives, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, security cameras--power them all, all at once, without annoying glitches or lags. With a PowerLine AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit, you not only have the freedom to connect your favorite devices anywhere you need them, but also the 500 Mbps speed and advanced QoS bandwidth optimization to prioritize heavier traffic, and deliver seamless digital entertainment.
Create a Wall-To-Wall Home Network, Instantly.
PowerLine technology transmits data along the wiring of a building's existing electrical system, providing a secure and reliable broadband connection to places impossible to reach with a wireless signal. All you need is to plug the Adapter into any conventional power outlet and that's it--you can extend your existing PowerLine network and get performance connectivity, exactly where you need it. It's an ideal networking solution for homes where concrete walls, successive floors in multi-storied buildings, or other architectural impediments can significantly weaken a wireless coverage and create dead spots.

Get Wireless Freedom and Wired Reliability
Because a PowerLine Network is hard-wired, there is no external "ambient" interference common to even the most powerful wireless systems. PowerLine Network Technology is HomePlug AV compliant and works across phases in your building's electrical box to transmit data reliably by intelligently adapting to the strongest signal channels. Data and electricity transmit at very different frequencies, so there's never a problem of electrical interference or shorting with a PowerLine device. PowerLine turns any conventional electrical outlet in your home or office into a fully-functioning Ethernet port and your entire home into a wall-to-wall network, instantly.
Set-up? PowerLine is Plug and Play. And That's It.
Building a custom PowerLine network with the PowerLine AV Adapter Starter Kit is a cinch. Simply plug each PowerLine AV 500 Adapter into a conventional power outlet and D-Link's Simple Connect button will establish a 128-bit security encrypted connection between your Adapters and your Internet source device in a flash. With a PowerLine DHP-501AV there are no cables to run, holes to drill or wireless signals to configure. Use the DHP-501AV to extend and build a custom PowerLine network and pair it with the PowerLine AV 500 4-Port Gigabit Switch and connect up to 4 of your favorite connected devices to setup a clean, cable-free entertainment system, anywhere in your home or office.
Create An Ultra-Secure Home Network
PowerLine protects your network with 128-bit AES data security encryption the same technology used in E-commerce or online banking. Create your own network name and password or put it at the tip of your fingers with 'Push Button Security' standard on every PowerLine device. With hassle-free plug and play installation, and advanced security the DHP-501 AV Adapter Starter Kit is not only one of the fastest networking solutions available, it's also one of the safest.
Get Ready for the Future: IPV6 Equipped
With the growing number of Internet-enabled applications requiring IP addresses, the supply of IP addresses under the current Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) system has already been exhausted. The IPv6 protocol solves this network addressing exhaustion by creating more IP addresses, but migration from IPv4 to IPv6 is not necessarily automatic. No worries--this D-Link product is IPv6 Certified and ready for the future.
