D-Link has unveiled the Hybrid Wireless N PowerLine Router, also known as the DHP-1320, a networking solution for extending wired and wireless home networks using a home’s existing electrical wiring.  The 802.11n 300 device offers throughput of up to 200Mbps via the Atheros Hy-Fi chipset.

The device is aimed at helping to extend Ethernet or Wi-Fi networks into “dead zones” such as  a basement or attic. The D-Link device provides previously unreliable areas with bandwidth sufficient for HD video, gaming and VOIP by turning the existing electrical system into an extended Ethernet network.

The DHP-1320 is simply connected to the high-speed cable or DSL modem, then plugged into an electrical outlet.  It will then distribute broadband to every electrical outlet in the home or office. PowerLine adapters are then used to connect computers and other internet devices either through a wired or wireless connection.

The DHP-1320 comes with three 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports, supports WPA2 wireless encryption (the PowerLine network itself is also protected using 128-bit AES security), and easy network configuration. The unit also supports IPv6 for future-proofing. Accessories include a PowerLine AV 4-port switch, a Wireless N extender and Network Starter Kit. The DHP-1320 itself costs $130, and the various adapters range from $100 to $140
