First Look: D-Link DHP-1320 Powerline Router

1:35 /

The D-Link DHP-1320 Powerline Router is the first all-in-one wireless router that support all wired, wireless and powerline network devices.

-A wireless router can generally handle both the wireless clients, such as a laptop or a smartphone, and wired clients, such as a desktop computer. Now, it would be even better if it could handle a powerline connection, too. Hello, my name is Dong Ngo and this is the first all-in-one router of that kind, the DHP 1320 Wireless N PowerLine Router from D-Link. The router is slightly different from other wireless routers. The biggest difference, however, is its power supply, which is inside the router itself. This power supply is also now dubbed a powerline adapter, allowing its power cable to also work as direct cable for a powerline connection. This means, in order to create a powerline connection, you only need just one adapter at the far end corner, instead of two. Other than that, the DHP 1320 is a single-band wireless N router that has a built-in USB port. This port can be used with D-Link's SharePort technology and allows any USB device to work with a network computer as though it worked connected to the computer directly. The router has 2 antennae on the back where you'd also find the on/off button and a switch that quickly changes the device's function between a router and an access point. The router is now available for $120. As usual, however, you should check out the full review at CNET.com before buying it. Once again, my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the DHP 1320 Wireless N PowerLine Router from D-Link.
