High Quality Performance

The D-Link DHP-1320 provides up to 200 Mbps over your electrical wiring – fast enough to stream HD video, support enhanced gaming and share large files from anywhere in your home.

The Convenience of Wi-Fi and PowerLine – All in One Place

The D-Link DHP-1320 is also a Wireless N 300 router that provides 300 Mbps wireless connectivity. By using D-Link’s Wireless N technology, the DHP-1320 provides a significantly faster and farther-reaching wireless signal than outdated Wireless G routers. D-Link’s Intelligent Antenna Technology makes use of your home’s environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off of walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots. At the same time, you can use PowerLine in areas where a wired connection would be beneficial, like hard-to-reach areas in your home.

D-Link DHP-1320 User Reviews

The D-Link DHP-1320 PowerLine Router is the first all-in-one router we’ve seen, and it delivers for the most part. The router offered decent close-range wireless speed and worked well with most HomePlug AV adapters in our testing. It also has an USB port and a decent set of features that can be conveniently managed via its responsive and well-organized Web interface.

On the downside, the router doesn’t feature dual-band or support Gigabit Ethernet and comes with just three LAN ports, whereas most wireless routers have four. For the street price of around $85, however, it’s a good buy for a home that requires a flexible network and doesn’t have intensive networking needs.

The good: The D-Link DHP-1320 Wireless N PowerLine Router incorporates HomePlug AV power-line technology and works with other HomePlug AV-compliant power-line adapters. The router offers fast wireless throughput speed, long range, and IP6 support, and is easy to use.

The bad: The D-Link DHP-1320 has only three LAN ports and doesn’t support Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band wireless, or the 500Mbps power-line standard. The router’s range throughput could be better and it’s a little bulky.

The bottom line: Supporting Wireless-N and HomePlug AV, the D-Link DHP-1320 Wireless N PowerLine Router is an id
eal router for a home network that favors flexibility over performance. Its lack of support for Gigabit Ethernet, dual-band wireless, and the 500Mbps power-line standard, however, makes it less suitable for those who need to share or stream a large amount of data.
