5 out of 5 eggsMuch better

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Well priced, and no issues. Just plug them in and they work.

Cons: None yet...still have to try more than two on the network :)

Other Thoughts: Easy fix for my desktop system that is in a room pretty far from my (very up to date) router. the signal path was through a refrigerator and a microwave, and a couple of walls. Needless to say, my connectivity was iffy. These devices solved my problem. I am ordering one for each desktop and laptop (desk) in the house. I'll leave the wireless for the phones and tablets.

5 out of 5 eggsPleased ....

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: These worked well with my existing D-Link 200 Meg adapters without any config. Got "green" connection rate where my old 200 meg connection was "red". Used speedtest web site and could get highest rate possible back to my PC through the power line adapter from the test web site based off of my max connection speed that my ISP provides. I do not transfer files between computers so I do not care if get 500 meg or 200 meg transfer rate. As long as I get the max connection rate that my ISP provides I am happy!

Cons: No utility to check speed or configure adapters. My older D-Link adapters have this utility. Manual has 309 on cover but references 308 model throughout the manual.

Other Thoughts: These are great!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than expected

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Worked as described. Worked a lot better than what i could have imagined. Worked across different sub panels. (from house to garage) For kicks I decided to try it from the house to a horse barn about 450' away, it worked!

Cons: Couldn't get the secure link established, but that's okay. No other cons.

Other Thoughts: The link from the house to the garage across a different sub panel took about 15sec. (75' away)
The link from the house to the horse barn took about 35sec (450' away)

2 out of 5 eggsWarning On Speeds!!

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: It usually works.

Cons: The speed is absolutely bogus. These things only come with a 10/100 Mbit/s ports. The title and specs state that you can get "up-to" 500 Mbit/s. This is a huge false advertising scheme. 100 is the max connection capacity between the two devices. You won't see speeds faster then 10 MegaBytes per second. If the title was correct you should see around 50 but I'm betting most customers will only report between 5-10.

Other Thoughts: The product needs to be updated to say "Up-To 100Mbits/s"

Manufacturer Response:

We want to thank you for the feedback and we are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with the product. Please be advised that 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. Thank you for choosing D-Link.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Great power line network starter kit. Our home is fairly new and I'm able to get ~16 MBps (Megabytes, not bits).

Cons: I can't think of many cons, works as expected.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate the feedback and want to thank you for being a D-Link customer.

3 out of 5 eggsDHP-309AV

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Works well with it's own kind. Quick to connect once started and easy to setup.

Cons: Does not play nicely with TP-Link AV500nano
Fights for the data so that either the TP-Link works or the DHP-309AV works. Can't work together at the same time. Have not tried with other models though.

Other Thoughts: Compact but kinda wished the lights were not so big. I can see it light up at the corner of my eye which is a bit distracting.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate the feedback as we take the input into great consideration and we are sorry to hear you encountered issues with the DHP-309AV. Please make sure that the two devices are not connected to the same electrical circuit as this adversely impacts the performance of the Powerlines. In addition make sure that the products are not plugged into a power strip. If you have experience any other problems feel free to contact our technical support team for assistance by calling 1-877-453-5465. We thank you for choosing D-Link.

2 out of 5 eggsThere are better units out there

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Does what it says, ethernet over power lines.

Cons: I was unsure how much throughput to expect from this technology, so I bought a pair of netgears also advertised at 500mbps with a 10/100 ethernet port. That device performed gave me 5 - 7 MB/s ( > 50 mbps ) which was enough for me to stream uncompressed blu rays ( ~40mbps). Satisfied with the result I bought this pair since it was half the price. With all the other variables kept the same, this pair of units clocks in at 3.3 MB/s which is about half the speed of the netgear device and inadequate for my needs. I returned it the same day.

Other Thoughts: While it does provide ethernet over power lines, many people are considering these devices to get better throughput than they would with wireless. My regular wireless-n connection performs faster than both this device and the netgear device (when properly optimized). I chose to keep the netgear device only because the wireless can drop in speed at times of the day when there is more interference.

Manufacturer Response:

We want to thank you for the feedback as we greatly appreciate the input and we are sorry to hear you encountered issues with the product. Please make sure you have done the following:

1. Do not connect your PowerLine devices to extension cords, surge protectors, or power strips. Doing this might prevent your devices from working correctly, or may negatively impact network performance.
2. Avoid plugging your PowerLine devices into electrical outlets that are located near appliances that use a lot of power, such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators. Doing this could prevent the adapter from working correctly, or may negatively impact network performance.
3. Verify that your PowerLine devices are electrically rated to operate with the power available in your location.

If you are still experiencing issues feel free to contact us for assistance by calling 1-877-453-5465. Thank you for choosing D-Link.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Perfectly

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: It works! I can not compare this with other brands or models but I am totally satisfied. I had trouble with a wi-fi connection to my HTC in the bedroom. This baby connects every single time as soon as the desktop appears.

The connection speed is excellent.

Cons: None as it works perfectly and connects all the time.

3 out of 5 eggsGood patch solution, won't replace ethernet

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV+ Mini Adapter Starter Kit Up to 500Mbps

Pros: Easy to install, set up, use, and provides a connection to any room without having to string ethernet cables across rooms.

Cons: Very noticeable speed limitations. I'm on 100+ megabit internet connection, and this seems to cap out at around 30 megabits per second downstream.

Other Thoughts: This is a good solution for people who are trying to bring wired internet in hard-to-reach areas of a home or business, and it's easy to use and install and requires little tech knowledge. However, the limitations make it a last resort option. If you can string an ethernet cable, you're better off doing that than using powerline. If you don't mind the speed slowdown, this product will work for you.

Manufacturer Response:

We appreciate the feedback and want to thank you for your comments and concerns. We are sorry to hear that you have encountered slower than expected speeds with our product. Please note that the product will work to its best of its capabilities if it is plugged into a wall outlet and not a power strip. Also make sure that other major appliances are plugged away from the product as they may adversely impact the DHP-309AV's performance. If your problem persists, feel free to contact us for further troubleshooting by calling 1-877-453-5465 or by visiting www.support.dlink.com. We thank you for choosing D-Link.
