Devolo dLAN 500 Wi-Fi Powerline Starter Kit

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

Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by Devolo dLAN 500 Wi-Fi Powerline Starter Kit This was easy to set up and works a treat. Recommended. 16 December 2014
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product did exactly what it promised My wifi did not reach to all parts of my property. This unit was so easy to set up and worked perfectly. It was so good. I wanted to extend it further into my garden summerhouse. Unfortunately, John Lewis on line only sell the starter kits and don't seem to sell additional dLAN 500 units. 15 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works exactly as described. Works straight out of the box. Simply easy to understand instructions. Set up took less than 10 minutes. 08 July 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Nightmare to connect What should have been a simple installation turned out to be a nightmare. Kept getting 'invalid' password using code on unit. After 4 hours searching net finally found an obscure post which helped solve problem. Download Devolo Cockpit app, hover over Adaptor icon, click on 'configuration page adaptor', click on WLAN config, click on 'AccessPoint', scroll to bottom of page. Note 16 (alpha) characte rcode and use this instead of the 16 (alpha) character one on back of unit. Now works! Would have helped to have a troubleshooting guide with the starter kit and a cd I could use! (comes with a mini disk) 11 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the box! The instructions provided are generic 'euro' diagrams and do not tell the full story. When you have difficulty resetting the WLAN you will need to go online and find expanded instructions. Otherwise a very good product. 20 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by works a treat Ive waited a month to review this product, and to be honest i thought it would be a gimmick only work in new houses thin walls etc, we live in a 350 year old house with walls a good 2 foot thick made of stone, I couldn't get any wi-fi to my ipad or iphone from my wireless router in my lounge the router is in my office on 2nd floor of house, but with this its perfect i was pleasantly surprised..takes out the hassle of running the Ethernet cable down the stairs 10/10 product 04 November 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommend The two adapters are quite discreet. They're small in size, however if you have a twin socket you may find it to be obstructing the way of connecting other appliances. I must say, they are excellent build quality and a nice shade of white. They match the colour of my walls which making them discreet. As for installation, they are quite simple to install. The quick start guide contains a series of pictures. Also, If you go to the Access Point menu on the adaptor configuration page you can find the key to connect to the adaptor. This part was omitted in the quick start guide but it's quite important for you to specify your security details. As for performance, they work well. I can stream 1080p with no problem. They do not make any noise, and you can switch of the green LED lights in the menu. Recommended. 22 October 2013
