D-Link (http://www.dlinkshop.com/store/) has announced its latest in PowerLine 200Mbps home networking solutions with a new line of mini adapters. Pricing ranges from US$59.99 to $129.99.
The PowerLine AV Mini Adapter (DHP-310AV) and PowerLine AV Mini Adapter Starter Kit (DHP-311AV), as well as the PowerLine AV 4-Port Switch Mini Adapter Starter Kit (DHP-348AV) transform a home’s existing electrical wiring into a high-speed home network. PowerLine technology delivers a high-performance, reliable and secure wireless signal throughout the home that’s suitabl for connecting a desktop, laptop or wired entertainment device in those hard-to-reach spots, such as homes or small offices where concrete walls, successive floors in multi-storied buildings, or other architectural impediments could inhibit a wireless signal.
Delivering speeds of up to 200Mbps over existing electrical wiring, D-Link’s latest PowerLine products are ideal for high-bandwidth network-ready devices such as the Boxee Box by D-Link, Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, and more, according to Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. And the compact size only takes up one electrical outlet on a standard plug, enabling consumers to plug in more devices, he adds.
The PowerLine AV Mini Adapter and PowerLine AV Mini Adapter Starter Kit (includes two adapters) can be plugged into an existing power outlet to add a PowerLine connection to an existing PowerLine Network. Or you can create a PowerLine right out of the box using the PowerLine AV 4-Port Switch Mini Adapter Starter Kit, which includes the PowerLine AV 4-Port Switch and one adapter.
Connect the adapter into an existing outlet, connect it to the router and plug the switch into any other room for an instant shared connection. Equipped with four ports, the switch enables consumers to connect more devices per room.
