details: Wireless N PowerLine Gigabit Router
hardware type: Wireless Router

D-Link's DHP-1565 Wireless N Powerline Gigabit Router uses your home's electrical wiring to expand your network to all corners of your home - at speeds of up to 500 Mbps. It can be used in either of two operating modes - Router Mode or Access Point Mode.

AES data encryption protects the Powerline network from unauthorized access and wire-tapping, and modern encryption standards such as WEP, WPA, and WPA2 ensure that your data will remain safe when transmitted wirelessly.

Users can press the Common Connect Button to establish a secure Wi-Fi (via WPS) or Powerline connection in just a few seconds. Built-in dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT ) also help to guard against potential attacks originating from the Internet.

The DHP-1565 supports D-Link Green features such as Wi-Fi Scheduling, PLC (Power Line Communication) Power Saving, and Power Saving by Link Status.

Wi-Fi Scheduling allows you to configure specific time periods when the wireless network will be powered off to save energy and enhance security. PLC Power Saving shuts down the Powerline connection when no Ethernet activity or wireless connection is detected. Power Saving by Link Status automatically detects the link status of wired devices and reduces the power usage of ports that are idle.
