Free update brings WiFi Move Technology to dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+

devolo
With WiFi Move Technology, devolo brings the best Wi-Fi into any room. The principle: Wi-Fi access points are used right where you do a lot of wireless surfing at your home - giving you the best reception for your smartphone, tablet and laptop! The German manufacturer now makes its flagship dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+ product compatible with its forward-looking Powerline Wi-Fi technology as well, through a free-of-charge firmware update.

Wi-Fi revolution through the power outlet: best Wi-Fi reception throughout the home

WiFi Move Technology allows flawless Wi-Fi reception via multiple Wi-Fi access points in the home. The access points are simply located in any room in which you tend to surf the web frequently. This ensures the best Wi-Fi quality in the home office and living room, for example. Through WiFi Move Technology, mobile devices automatically recognise the Wi-Fi access point with the strongest transmitting power. In the living room, the tablet therefore immediately connects to the WiFi Move Adapter on site, while in the home office it switches to the access point installed there.

dLAN® 500 WiFi and dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+ - the WiFi Move family

The dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+ is now presented as an ideal addition to the dLAN® 500 WiFi. While the dLAN® 500 WiFi dazzles with its compact dimensions, the Wireless+ variant offers an integrated electrical socket and mains filter. The adapter also has three LAN ports for cable-based network devices and is therefore ideal for all rooms in which stationary PCs and consumer electronics are also used.

devolo WiFi Move Technology: higher performance than Wi-Fi repeaters

The wireless Wi-Fi access points are simply connected to one another via dLAN® Powerline, the home network via the power line. Powerline is not weakened by thick walls and ceilings - so every access point utilizes the full Internet connection bandwidth.Because of this design, devolo WiFi Move Technology is considerably better than Wi-Fi modem/repeater solutions. While conventional repeaters simply take an already weak Wi-Fi signal and reproduce it, WiFi Move access points always supply full Wi-Fi performance, since the data are distributed over the electrical wiring.

Simple set-up by app for smartphone and tablet

With an app for smartphones and tablets (iOS/Android), WiFi Move is extremely easy to set up. All settings automatically apply for all adapters. Along with the SSID, password and filter tables, the app offers individual configurations for time control, guest accounts and child-safety features. The expansion is therefore remarkably easy: When adding a new access point, all settings are transmitted from one adapter to the other at the touch of a button.

Firmware update for dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+ now available

A free update makes WiFi Move Technology available on the dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+. It is available starting immediately for installation via the dLAN® Cockpit software. Alternatively, the dLAN® 500 Wireless+ Adapter can also be updated without the configuration software. There is also a self-executing update file available on the product page for the adapter at www.devolo.de. This is easily downloaded and started by double-clicking. In those devolo dLAN® 500 AV Wireless+ adapters that are now available in stores, the update is already implemented.
