The devolo single adapters of the Magic series are perfect for areas in your home where you do not yet have optimal Internet reception. These could be newly used rooms or floors, for example. Or you might have just moved into a new home and therefore have more square metres at your disposal.
Are you currently using a Magic LAN set? Then you can also add WiFi adapters to this system. This also allows you to bring WiFi to other rooms or floors.
You have a Magic WiFi set in use? Then you also have the freedom to choose between additional Magic adapters with LAN or WiFi - depending on whether you want to surf everywhere or only want to supply a stationary device with reliable Internet.
devolo Magic adapters are compatible with all routers, network devices, devolo Magic adapters and products certified by the HomeGrid Forum. dLAN® powerline adapters and other HomePlug AV products including the devolo Outdoor WiFi powerline adapter are not supported.
The new expansion adapter is added at the push of a button using one of the previously installed adapters. You can refer to the information leaflets of the specific devices for detailed information.
In addition, we recommend installing the devolo Home Network App on your smartphone. This app makes it even easier to perform set-up, get a performance overview and configure settings of the devolo Magic adapters.
How can I change the password for my home network?
You can do that either using the app or via cockpit.
Where is the best place to put a Powerline adapter?
Ideally it should be plugged into a single socket. If the adapter is plugged into a multiple socket, then it should be the only device plugged in there if possible. You can easily use the power socket on the adapter to connect additional devices or a power strip.
Do devolo Magic adapters work with all routers and network devices?
devolo Magic adapters are compatible with all routers, network devices, devolo Magic adapters and products certified by HomeGrid Forum. dLAN® Powerline adapters and other HomePlug AV products, including the devolo Outdoor WiFi Powerline adapter, are not supported.
Is there a difference between "expansion adapter" and "single"?
No. These are merely two different terms for a single adapter for expanding the network which is sold separately.
How many adapters can be connected together in one home network?
You can easily combine as many as eight adapters together.
What software can I use to configure and manage my Magic adapters?
Do Magic devices also support older dLAN devices?
dLAN devices are not supported by the new generation of technology, which is why Magic and dLAN are not compatible with each other.
Are supplementary Magic adapters also installed automatically?
No. You have to add the new device using one of the previously installed devices and by pressing a button. To do this, start by selecting an adapter from your existing network. Then press the encryption button of the new adapter.
Can Wi-Fi be used simultaneously with the integrated LAN port?
Yes, you can definitely use the Wi-Fi signal and the LAN port at the same time.
