The PowerLine AV 500 4-Port Gigabit Switch from D-Link boasts transfer rate of up to 500 Mbps for multiple HD streams and its QoS Traffic Optimization technology engine prioritize's bandwidth traffic. Simply plug into the existing power outlets and connect an entertainment system from anywhere in your house to your network. Use the DHP-541's ports to ensure high performance online gaming or seamless 1080p HD video streams always get top bandwidth priority. With this switch you can organize and manage your traffic flow and get the most out of your broadband connection.
Connect to Anything, Anywhere
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 541 AV Starter Kit you can build a custom 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 Network 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
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. Use your 541 AV Starter Kit to build a custom PowerLine network and deliver performance - up to 500Mbps -connectivity exactly where you need it. Just connect your Internet source device to the included PowerLine Adapter, plug the PowerLine AV 500 4-Port Gigabit Switch into any electrical outlet, and connect up to 4 high-performance devices to the switch. Power your entertainment center and keep your home clean and cable-free. PowerLine is the ideal networking solution for homes or small offices 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. And with Noise Filtering, interference from external devices such as vacuums or blenders is also diminished.
PowerLine is Plug and Play
Building your PowerLine network from the ground up is a cinch. Just connect your Internet source device to the included PowerLine Adapter, plug the PowerLine AV 540 4-Port Gigabit Switch into any electrical outlet, and connect up to 4 high-performance devices to the Switch. D-Link's 'Simple Connect' button will establish a 128-bit security encrypted connection over your PowerLine network in a flash. With PowerLine, there are no cables to run, holes to drill or wireless signals to configure, delivering blazing-fast connectivity - up to 500 Mbps - to any device, anywhere in the home is as easy as plug and play.
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 PowerLine AV 500 4-Port Gigabit Switch Kit is not only one of the fastest networking solutions available, it's also one of the safest.
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.
PowerLine Network devices automatically power down when not in use or connected, and the LEDs have a manual 'disable' switch to conserve energy. D-Link Green devices provide eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance. They are designed to help conserve energy, protect our environment from harmful substances and reduce waste by using recyclable packaging. Complies with the EU RoHS directive that restricts the use of certain hazardous materials.
