Devolo dLAN 200 AV Wireless N review
8 February 2012
Summary: The DevlodLAN 200 AV Wireless N boasts three Ethernet ports and Wi-Fi connectivity making it ideal for people who need to connect more than one device to their network, however it's far from the cheapest on the market. Read our full review to find out more.
Excerpt: As well as send network data, Devolo's latest HomePlug AV kit lets you communicate with USB devices over your home's wiring. This kit comes with a normal HomePlug AV adaptor, with a single Ethernet port but no pass-through power socket, plus the new USB-equipped unit. The latter is also available separately on its own for £57 (part code 01562). Setting up the HomePlug AV network was simple.
Summary: An easy to set up system that gives decent data transfer results over residential mains electricity networks, but which can also be used to set up a small standard Ethernet LAN and an 802.11n wireless network.
Pros: Simple set-up; flexible configuration options to mix Ethernet LAN, mains LAN and wireless LAN networks; decent mains LAN data transfer rates.
Cons: Users will likely get one quarter of the claimed 200Mbit/s data transfer rate written on the starter kit box
Excerpt: Devolo’s dLAN 200AV Wireless N Starter Kit includes two HomePlug devices. One is a single-port plug to connect to your broadband router, while the other has three LAN ports as well as wireless. You can plug this into a socket far from your router to extend its wireless range, and it gives you a choice of wired or wireless connections. As with most HomePlug devices, initial setup is easy - you plug both units in and press the button on each.
Summary: Eine USB-Verbindung über bis zu 300 Meter Distanz einfach über das Stromnetz herzustellen, klingt verlockend. Der dLan 200 AV USB Extender des Aachener Spezialisten Devolo verspricht genau das.
