User Experience

Plug and play is sufficient, and once the communication link is established – you’re done! It’s that simple.

Below is the test result on my 30M/10M broadband connection – I’m on my work PC that’s connected to an ASUS Router that’s link to the AV500 adapter, while on the other end is another AV500 that’s linked to another D-Link router that is connected to the modem.
