The Wireless N technology incorporated into the DHP-W306AV offers
increased speed and range over standard 802.11g/b. Initial wireless
setup can be accomplished quickly, thanks to a convenient WPS
button atop the device. WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption keep your
network traffic safe and secure.
Ideal for Bandwidth-Intensive Applications
The DHP-W306AV is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to
200 Mbps2. This rapid transmission speed makes it ideal for bandwidthintensive 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 you to tap
into existing electrical wiring for high-quality multimedia streaming.
Convenient Setup and Secure Operation
The DHP-W306AV 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 via
Ethernet cable or Wireless N. For convenient setup, wired or wireless
encryption keys can be quickly configured with the push of a button
atop the device. The adapter implements 128-bit AES data encryption
to protect the network from unauthorized wire tapping. With hasslefree plug and play installation, the DHP-W306AV is an ideal solution to
create a wall-to-wall home network.
Fast Transmission Using Your Home’s Existing Wiring
The PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender incorporates the latest
technology to deliver up to 200 Mbps1 over a home’s existing electrical
wiring. This fast transmission speed provides ample bandwidth suitable
for streaming high-quality video HDTV signals while simultaneously
providing highspeed Internet access throughout the home. With
Quality of Service (QoS) support, the performance of applications
which require real-time communication, such as VoIP phone calls
and multiplayer online games, will not be compromised even while
downloading Internet TV and music.

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. Maximum throughput based on D-Link’s 802.11n devices. 2Power 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. 3Maximum 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. 4Computer must adhere to Microsoft’s recommended system requirements. 5Software included
