Rolling in at about 100 (around $160), D-Link provides a surprisingly affordable entry into the 500Mbps market, with this its DHP-501AV Powerline AV 500 Network Starter Kit. Inside the formidably large box you'll find a pair of stylish powerline adaptors, as well as a pair of cables to connect the units to your machines, a simple manual and a set up CD that isn't really needed for day-to-day operations.The units themselves are large, but they do counter this with some nice design choices that elevate them above the usual boxy looks of the competition. The fact that the bulk of the unit drops below the socket means that there's plenty of room for the power socket on/off switches.Another neat touch on the design front is that the Ethernet port is on the right-hand side of the unit, which makes it slightly more accessible that the usual bottom placement. This does infer that you should use the right-hand socket of a double wall plug, though - otherwise you could hit problems trying to squeeze it next to another large device.
Powerline networking, which uses your home's electrical wiring to send and receive data, has been around for years, but until recently it has been held back by slow throughput speeds, interference from other electrical appliances, and the emergence of Wi-Fi as the preferred home networking technology. However, the latest crop of powerline devices now offer \"theoretical” throughput speeds of 500 Mbps and are impervious to interference from all but the most power hungry appliances. And when it comes to transferring large chunks of data, powerline is exponentially faster than Wi-Fi. D-Link's DHP501-AV Powerline AV 500 Adapter Starter Kit ($159.99 list) has everything you need to add powerline technology to your network. It offers speedy transfer rates and installs in minutes, but the adapters are bulky and can be easily disconnected from their outlet. Features and DesignLike Netgear's Powerline AV 500 Adapter Kit ($159, 4 stars) the D-Link DHP501-AV Kit comes with two adapters, two Ethernet cables, and a CD containing a quick installation guide and a Management utility.
