Product information

The Devolo dLAN 500 combines dLAN powerline technology with Wi-Fi to extend your network to wired and wireless devices virtually anywhere in your home with a power socket. The dual adapters work by transferring your network connection from your router, through your household electrical wiring to wherever the second unit is plugged in. You can then plug into the connection directly, using an Ethernet cable, or enjoy wireless browsing, thanks to the built in wireless LAN. Ideal for homes where solid walls and dead spots make a regular Wi-Fi network hard to use.

Key Features:

  • Use the integrated Ethernet connection to connect wired machines for a faster connection, or use the built-in Wi-Fi to gain full-strength reception for smartphones, tablets and other wireless devices.

  • Wi-Fi move technology means you can seamlessly connect to Wi-Fi from each adapter as you move about the house, without signal dropping out (requires at least two dLAN 500 Wi-Fi adapters).

  • Connect devices that require high data transmission speeds such as Smart TVs or games consoles through the Ethernet adapter and enjoy speeds of up to 500Mbps.

  • dLAN 500 automatically encrypts your connection, providing active protection from unauthorised access at the touch of a button for Wi-Fi(WPS) and dLAN (AES).

  • dLAN 500's compact, unobtrusive design means that it won't look out of place in any location.

  • Devolo's Powersave technology ensures continuous, intelligent and entirely automatic minimal energy consumption.

  • dLAN Cockpit Software allows you to survey your home network easily though a Windows, Mac or Linux computer.

Package Includes:
1x dLAN 500 WiFi adapter
1x dLAN 500 duo adapter
1x Network cable
CD containing software and documentation
Hard copy of installation guide

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product - good customer service. We have been using this product for a few weeks now and it appears to have improved our Wi-Fi throughout the house. We have thick walls throughout the house. Broadband in our area (near Oban) is generally very poor but this product appears to improve things for our television and I-pads. 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple to set up with this poduct Having used a similarly priced previous brand that went into fault after about a year, I then went to John Lewis to replace it. This one is quicker and was easier to install, it also has a far stronger signal. Very pleased 17 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fab product - does what it says I found this really easy to set up and it works a treat. It has solved the problem of a weak wifi signal in the rooms furthest away from our hub. The house has old thick cob walls and wifi wouldn't transmit through them all. But this product plugs into the electricity ring and so gets around that problem. Highly recommended. And I got very good advice and service in the Exeter branch where I bought it. 25 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not so straightforward It worked after about 20 mins of fiddling - no idea what I did. Excellent signal in previously dead part of house - so top marks for that. What I didn't (but should have) realised is that you connect to a different network. So I need to use my original Virgin Media network in the front of the house, and the dLan network in the back. So need to switch between them when moving about. Not the end of the world and worth the hassle for the signal. Also, it recommends not having much kit pugged into same socket - tricky if, like me, you run Router/TV/HiFi/DVD/HD Recorder etc from the same sockets via a gang. Not sure to what extent this actually affects performance. Pricey for what it is, but if you want a great signal where there wasn't one before, that's what you get. You decide whether it is worth it. 11 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Genius product This really has changed our wifi world - having not been able to get reception at one end of our flat since we moved in three years ago, this clever gadget now means we can get wifi everywhere. Heartily recommend. 23 June 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nightmare to connect 2 Followed the Quick Setup guide exactly but couldn't get the Devolo to connect to my iPhone. Yes, the code on the back of the unit is small but I definitely noted the correct number (checked it multiple times) but couldn't get it to work. Luckily after about an hour of trying I saw a previous post on here by Monty. I also downloaded the Devolo app for my phone and used the 16 digit code from there. This was a completely different code to that on the back of the unit. The new code worked immediately, so thank you Monty. Apart from that, really pleased with the device, now get great coverage all over the house. Really think that the instructions should be updated by Devolo. 15 March 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by What a difference! Really happy with The Devolo dLan 500 Wi-Fi Powerline Starter Kit. Before I bought this kit, my laptop had great problems with connecting to a WiFi signal.Many times I would be online and my broadband connection would cut out. Most annoying! Since I have connected up my Devolo dLan 500 Wi Fi starter kit (simple to connect) I have not experienced anymore problems and I can now go online knowing that I will not lose my connection. Thoroughly recommend this kit, worth every penny! 02 September 2014
