Connect to Anything, Anywhere: PowerLine Meets Your Digital Demands.
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 AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit, you have everything you need to create a PowerLine network from the ground up and 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 AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit, 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.
Give up to 4 of your favorite devices their own Gigabit Ethernet Port, anywhere in your home. Check out the PowerLine 500 AV 4 Port Gigabit Switch and build a complete PowerLine network.
Create a Wall-To-Wall Home Network, Instantly.
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. All you need is to plug each PowerLine AV 500 Adapter into any conventional power outlet and that’s it - you can build a custom PowerLine network and get performance connectivity, exactly where you need it. It’s an 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.
Need more coverage? Check out our individual AV Adapters and extend your PowerLine network exactly where you need it.
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. PowerLine turns any conventional electrical outlet in your home or office into a fully-functioning Ethernet port and your entire home into a wall-to-wall network.
Setup? The PowerLine AV 501 Starter Kit is Plug and Play. And That’s It.
Building a custom PowerLine network with the DHP-501AV is a cinch. Simply plug each PowerLine AV 500 Adapter into a conventional power outlet and D-Link’s ‘Simple Connect’ button will establish a 128-bit security encrypted connection between your Adapters and your Internet source device in a flash. With a PowerLine DHP-501AV there are no cables to run, holes to drill or wireless signals to configure. Use the DHP-501AV to extend and build a custom PowerLine network and pair it with the PowerLine AV 500 4-Port Gigabit Switch and connect up to 4 of your favorite connected devices to setup a clean, cable-free entertainment system, anywhere in your home or office.
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 Adapter Starter Kit is not only one of the fastest networking solutions available, it’s also one of the safest.
Get Ready for the Future - IPV6 Equipped
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. No worries - This D-Link product is IPv6 Certified and ready for the future.
- Goes into power-saving mode when no data link is detected after 5 minutes
- Complies with the EU RoHS directive that restricts the use of certain hazardous materials
- Uses soy ink and recyclable packaging to reduce harmful environmental waste
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.

1 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.
