DATA TRANSMISSION OVER ELECTRICAL Wiring
The D-Link DHP-P306AV Powerline AV Network Adapter, compliant with the HomePlug AV standard, uses your home’s existing electrical wiring to create a
network or extend your existing network.1 It turns every power outlet into a possible network connection to access digital media devices, game consoles, print
servers, computers, and network storage devices throughout your home. Additionally, the DHP-P306AV provides an extra passthrough power socket to ensure
that your electrical outlet remains available.
IDEAL FOR BANDWIDTH-INTENSIVE APPLICATIONS
The DHP-P306AV is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to 200 Mbps.2 This rapid transmission speed makes it ideal for bandwidth-intensive
applications, guaranteeing smooth HD video streaming, VoIP calls, and lag-free online gaming experiences. In addition, it prioritizes Internet traffic, ensuring
that multimedia applications do not experience glitches while web surfing and downloads are in progress. This device provides ample network bandwidth,
enabling digital home consumers to tap into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming.
CONVENIENT setup AND SECURE OPERATION
The DHP-P306AV plugs directly into a power outlet, and does not require any additional cables. Extend your home network by connecting multiple devices in
the farthest corners of your home, or attach a switch or wireless access point to the adapter for additional connectivity. For convenient setup, an encryption
key can be quickly configured with the push of a button. The adapter implements 128-bit AES data encryption to protect the network from unauthorized wire
tapping. With hassle-free plug and play installation, the DHP-P306AV is an ideal solution to create a wall-to-wall home network.
POWER SAVING FEATURE
The DHP-P306AV incorporates a power saving mode to comply with the European Energy Using Product (EuP) Directive. If no data transmission or reception
occurs over a certain period of time, the adapter will automatically go into sleep mode to save power.

Power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part of the same electrical system. Certain electrical conditions in your home, such as wiring condition and
configuration, may affect the performance of this product. Additional D-Link Powerline AV adapters are required to add new devices to the network. A
minimum of two D-Link Powerline AV Network Adapters are required to create a network. Connecting this product to a power strip with a surge protector
may adversely affect the performance of this product. For best results, plug the adapter directly into a wall outlet.

Maximum throughput based on theoretical transmission PHY rate. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including
volume of traffic and network overhead, may lower actual data throughput rate. Interference from devices that emit electrical noise, such as vacuum
cleaners and hair dryers, may adversely affect the performance of this product. This product may interfere with devices such as lighting systems that have a
dimmer switch or a touch-sensitive on/off feature, short wave radios, or other powerline devices that do not follow the HomePlug AV standard.
