Almost but not quite

Mr N A Cassidy, Amazon
16 August 2014
  • Summary: Looking to save space I purchased this to replace a combo of Netgear AV500 plug, Actiontec MI424wr and Netgear GS105. The D-link replacement kinda works, but not as well as I'd hoped. The AV side seems to work well. It can interoperate with other AV500 devices from TP-Link and Netgear, and worked with a Zyxel AV200 device as a test. Wireless 2.4GHz only, works ok, but having no external antenna impacts signal strength at distance.

Just bought a second...

Mr. B. Rose "jaffacake", Amazon
16 May 2014
  • Summary: Writing a review of my second one of these. I now have a pair which talk to each other over the power cabling in my home at around 170Mbps. End result is that I have two wireless access points running off one internet connection and some much needed Ethernet ports behind the TV to connect up smart TV etc. This box is great value right now but, with internal antennas, the WiFi strength isn't quite as good as some external antenna models - not an issue now I have two.

Not that good

Andy B, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: Bought this to allow me to use my Virgin Media Superhub as a cable modem as it was not great as a router. One of the major flaws with the VM hub is that it does not seem to work when setting up port forwarding. So I was disappointed to see I had the same problem setting up port forwarding on the D-Link. It is not user error as I have had port forwarding working on a Thomson router supplied by O2 Broadband (now Sky) for their ADSL service. It was also erratic to set up.

DHP-1565 used as an access point

Tim, Amazon
12 December 2013
  • Summary: I purchased the D-Link DHP-1565 to use an access point in combination with a DHP-1565 used as a router purchased some time ago. The two DHP-1565's talk via powerline very successfully and have proved very reliable. The downside of a DHP-1565 is the rather limited Wi-Fi range (in my house with thick walls) but the ability to link via powerline is a real advantage and extends the Wi-Fi range considerably.

Nice except for very slow WiFi

William Hartnell "will", Amazon
24 August 2013
  • Summary: The spec is good (high-speed powerline, gigabit Ethernet ports, 802.11n wireless). The router connected to my TP-Link adapters at a link speed of 150Mb/s (the maximum theoretical speed is 250Mb/s, so that's not too bad). And my laptop connected to the WiFi with a link speed of 130Mb/s (which is the bog standard speed: no dual channel stuff worked for me). But the throughput of the WiFi is terrible: down to 20Mb/s. I have no idea why. Other benchmarks online (e.g.

Brillant

  • Summary: Really easy to set up even for a technophobe like me. Wireless signal is really good through house and adding powerline adapters instead of hard wiring is a doddle. Worth every penny.

D-Link DHP-1565 Router

Pedro della Toria, arukereso.hu
21 August 2014
  • Excerpt: Dlink márkahűség, ethernet over power funkció.
  • Pros: Gyorsan installálható.
  • Cons: Kissé drága és időnként dobja a wifi-t, a gyakoribb (nem dlink) NAS-okkal kissé nehezen birkózik meg.

  • Excerpt: Удобное построение сети. Хорошая скорость, стабильная работа, отсутствие проводов, а сигнал (стабильность и скорость передачи данных) лучше чем WiFi/.
  • Pros: Отлично работает в сети по технологии PLC
  • Cons: Мало информации - брал кота в мешке))) Оказалось повезло. Высокочастотный свист, как от отпугивателя грызунов (((
