The DHP-W310AV supports three key hybrid features when used with other D-Link Hybrid routers - channel bonding to combine Powerline bandwidth with wireless bandwidth for faster data transmission, load balancing to prevent bottlenecks, and failover to automatically transfer the data stream to the other interface if the connection on one interface has any serious problems.
The DHP-W310AV supports the draft IEEE1905.1 standard for better ease of use for hybrid network setup and management. The DHP-W310AV also supports Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) Quality of Service to ensure faster multimedia transmission by prioritizing multimedia data over other kinds of data.
This range extender features WPA/WPA2 and WEP wireless encryption to ensure a secure wireless network connection. It features a Common Connect button to easily set up either a wireless connection through WPS, or create a secure Powerline connection. Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) by PIN is also supported.
