FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Mar 02, 2011 - D-Link® today announced its Wireless-N PowerLine Router (DHP-1320), a combination networking solution for extending wired and wireless home networks throughout the house by tapping into a home's electrical wiring, is now available. This combination IPv6-ready network solution merges PowerLine 200 Mbps technology with a Wireless-N router and Ethernet ports, offering consumers two connectivity options to extend home network coverage and enjoy high-bandwidth applications, including HD video content, multimedia, VoIP calls, and more.

“As the amount of high-bandwidth Internet-based content viewed and shared in today's homes continues to grow exponentially, superior network coverage is essential,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. “With this combination router and D-Link's line of PowerLine accessory products, we're able to provide consumers with a simple way to extend their networks into 'dead zones' where wireless coverage has previously been limited or spotty, such as a basement, an upstairs bedroom, or other hard to reach locations.”

Wired and Wireless Network Coverage Anywhere in the Home

The DHP-1320 extends wired and wireless networks to all devices in the home with optimal speed and bandwidth for a range of HD video-on-demand, gaming and other applications. Essentially turning a home's existing electrical system into an Ethernet network, PowerLine's extended coverage can be obtained without any drilling, difficult installation or messy cables. Simply plug the DHP-1320 into an electrical outlet and the technology distributes broadband to Internet-connected devices both wirelessly and through the electrical wiring in a home. D-Link® PowerLine adapters then plug into outlets anywhere in the home to extend wired coverage to additional rooms and devices where coverage is limited.

The DHP-1320 also provides IPv6 support, enabling consumers to future-proof their home networks for the next-generation of the Internet, ensuring connectivity with new wireless devices for years to come.

Additional features of the Hybrid Wireless-N PowerLine Router (DHP-1320) include:

  • HomePlug AV certified with up to 200Mbps throughput
  • Wireless N 300
  • 3-Port 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet Ports
  • Wi-Fi® Protected Setup™ (WPS) for Simple Push-Button Wireless Network Configuration
  • Atheros Hy-Fi™ technology expands coverage, improves performance and simplifies network set up and management
  • Built-in QoS Engine Enhances Internet Experience
  • Supports Secure Wireless Encryption Using WPA™ or WPA2™
  • Supports 128-bit AES Encryption For PowerLine Network Security
  • PowerLine Sync Connection (ENY) Button

Also shipping are a number of 200 Mbps PowerLine accessory products, including the PowerLine AV 4-Port Switch, Wireless N Extender, and Network Starter Kit. Combining these products with the DHP-1320 allows consumers to create the ultimate wired and wireless home network.
