devices throughout your home. compliance with the ieee 1901 standard and backward compatibility with the homeplug AV ensure that the DhP-540 can be
used with older Powerline devices.
iDeAl For bAnDwiDth-intenSiVe APPlicAtionS
the DhP-540 is capable of delivering data transfer rates of up to 500 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
traffic has priority over web surfing and file downloads. now you can experience high-quality multimedia streaming throughout your home, all through your
existing electrical wiring.

the DhP-540 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-540 is the ideal solution for creating a wall-to-wall home network.
Power SAVinG FeAture
the DhP-540 incorporates a power saving mode that detects if there has been no data transmission or reception over a certain period of time or if no device is
connected to a port, and will automatically place that port into sleep mode, saving more than 50% of the power normally needed.

1 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.
2 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.
