    I bought this DHP-W306AV unit with the D-Link DHP-307AV Powerline AV Network Adapter and Starter Kit. I aeraldy have a D-Link DIR-655 Wireless Router and the need of these equipment is that I live in a big & good apartment and the wireless signal is not strong in some areas. So the idea was to use the electric wire to expand both wired and wireless to the entire apartment. After several minutes reading the instructions, you may feel frustraded because it is not that simple. You have to use intuition and pay a lot of attention for details in the documentation to be succesful. I spent 45 minutes to install both and they really work very well. The network signal is strong and estable. I consider a good product and investment. I don’t give a 5 star just because the poor instructions as definitely, it needs improvements to be more user friendly.

      I am using a mix of DHP-W306 N Extender and normal cabled versions. Everything working OK until recently when N Extender will not rcognise itself as part of the over Powerline network. I have reset to factory, aligned all relevant password etc. Any suggestions?

        Hello. We have a DHP-W306AV – system with one master and three “slaves”
        One or another way we have lost the password to connect to the system, and we cant find a way to change it.
        Do we need to reinstall the whole system or are there a way to just change the connecting password?
        Most grateful to hear from You
        Regards
        /Lars Persson
