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,
short wave radios, or other powerline devices that do not follow the HomePlug Powerline Alliance standard. 2 Power outlets and electrical wiring must all be part
of the same electrical system. Certain electrical conditions in your home, such as wiring conditions and configuration may effect the performance of this product.
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 adapter directly into a power outlet. 3 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE
Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building
materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless
range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link.
