5 out of 5 eggs100% Efficiency and Reliability

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: - Will not fail
- Plug and play installation
- Works on any outlet in home
- Fast, efficient speed
- You can buy more to add to the network.

Cons: - None.

Other Thoughts: Please buy this if you need to create a LAN network in your home. You can also buy additional devices to expand it. They have never failed and, I bet, they never will.

1 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: When it worked, it was plug and play.

Cons: Completely unreliable. Documentation is inadequate.

Other Thoughts: Dont waste your time. If you have problems getting the device to work, there is no recourse or assistance in the documentation. Worked for 2 days, then just dropped signal completely. Documentation states to press the sync button on one device for 2 seconds, then press the sync button on the second device for 2 seconds. Pressing the buttons for 2 seconds does NOTHING. Holding it too long, and it does some weird cycling and does not reconnect the network. Now, I have 2 completely useless devices that dont work as they are supposed to. Stay away if you need any reliability.

1 out of 5 eggsVery disappointing

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: small; cheap when on sale

Cons: - significantly worse than my 200AV pair, even when these are the only powerline pair on the network (same plugs as the 300AV)
- support is missing/incomplete; they don't come with a firmware utility, and the one on the website expects a .BIN file, while the latest firmware zip archive contains two .GGL files
- Mine are HW Version B1, and they came with FW Ver 2.00

Other Thoughts: Will the Utility on the website work with the .GGL files? or will I brick them if I try to upgrade?
There are two files with the same date of creation. Which one 2.01 and which one is 2.02?
DHP308AVB1_FW202CEBb01.sorol_no_diag.ggl
DHP308AVB1_FW202NAb01.sorol_no_diag.ggl
Why are they both included?

4 out of 5 eggsWorks okay

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: - convenient and more stable than wireless extenders over large spaces
- cheap when on sale (~$20)
- quite easy to operate
- small compared to some other brands

Cons: - 10/100Mbps connection but powerline speeds rated at 500Mbps and capable of max speed of 200Mbps? This is all from D-Link documentation. In reality, of course you won't get anything close to these. Ideal case you'll get speeds close to megabit Ethernet, but in most cases, depending on your house wiring, it'll be significantly less.
- And not just mediocre speed is the issue here, stability when you really need it ain't so great. The farther away you connect these (which is the reason why you need these to begin with), the more likely speeds will drop or if the wiring is separate altogether, you get no connection
- BUT, slow speeds and stability are inherent issues for powerline Ethernet adapters... it's just this set has the most issues I have had compared to an old set of Rocketfish adapters. In a small apartment, it can't go from one end to the other (without constant resetting) because of some LED lights interference in the kitchen. Less issues with the old set.

Other Thoughts: It does the job in general, but I find these not to be as reliable as even smaller branded old Ethernet powerline adapters. Connection also depends heavily on the house wiring but that's the nature of this type of adapter.

1 out of 5 eggsUser-friendly, but surprisingly weak

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Easy to use right out of the box, lights are clear and easy to understand, based on color of light indicating strength of signal.

Cons: It simply did not perform. I bought these, hoping to replace some competitor branded 200 Mbps powerline adapters, since I was getting a fraction of the 75 Mbps speed of my internet, and thinking a 500 Mbps might be capable of pulling more speed from my electrical wiring. And upon comparing the competitor's 200 with the D-Link 500 on a variety of different wall outlets, the D-Link performed WORSE on every single one of them. Had no choice but to return.

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: Worked great out of the box, easy installation, supports high speeds.

Cons: Stopped working after two weeks. One of the units no longer appears to function correctly and emits a high-pitched noise.

5 out of 5 eggsWarning

This review is from: D-Link DHP-309AV PowerLine AV500 Mini Adapter Starter Kit

Pros: the product itself (as a starter kit) worked as designed within 5 minutes. Good speed. No complaints.

I read some people complaint it doesn't work with existing ZyXel powerline networks. just want to state it DOES. PLA4205 and PLA4225 and two of these D0LINKS all works together on one network with ZyXel PLA4205 connected to the router. It took me 40 minutes to make them all work together, but that's the ZyXel which locked up and refused to worked together. the trick was in ZyXel's user manual. No information on the Web. Plug all units into the same outlet/power strip, wait until power light is on an solid, then reset each of the units using Encrypt button by holding each for 10 or more seconds, that is not only re-set's the unit, but also unregistering it from the previous network. Then use only TWO units at the time. hold Encrypt button for 1-2 seconds on the base unit, connected to the router, as soon as lights start blinking (3-4 seconds later, but no longer than 120 seconds) hold encrypt button on the second unit for 2 seconds. Second unit MUST be connected to a computer/laptop via CAT5. the registering takes a minute. check internet connection. after it's completed, remove the second unit, replace it with a next one, connect that one to the computer via CAT5 and start by holding encrypt button on The base unit and 5 seconds later hold encrypt button for 1-2 seconds on the new unit, connected to a computer. within 1-2 minutes connection would be completed, check the internet speed via computer, replace the unit connected to the computer with a new one, requiring registering to the network and start registering again - 1-2 seconds hold encrypt on the base unit, and then 1-2 seconds on the new unit. remember ONLY TWO units at the time to work with and the pairing procedure must be done within 120 seconds. Connection to a computer on the second unit is a must for the reason - some of the units will go into the slip mode if CAT5 is not connected.

Cons: User manual could be better. especially connecting more than two units on the same network and troubleshooting paragraph sucks.

Other Thoughts: I bought this kit on sale for $20. ijust to try. if I would not rely on someone statement that D-LINK won't work with ZyXel network I would buy 3 of this units to have one in each of the rooms.
