The DXN-221 is designed for users who want to add bandwidth-demanding applications, such as high-definition (HD) media streaming, music-sharing and online multi-player gaming, to the home network. Included are two adapters, each with a wired Ethernet port and coaxial F-type connector for bridging the two adapters together.
Users can easily connect one of the included D-Link® HD MediaBridge Adapters to their existing home network router and then to an available coaxial outlet in the home, enabling network and Internet access to multiple rooms. A second adapter is connected to a coaxial outlet in another room to connect Ethernet-enabled devices like PCs and media players. The DXN-221 may be used in rooms with multiple devices by connecting a switch (such as the D-Link DGS-2205 5-Port Desktop Switch) to the adapter to connect additional devices.
The technology also works as a point-to-multipoint network, enabling multiple adapters to be placed throughout the home for connections in any room with a coaxial outlet.
With simple plug-and-play installation, the DXN-221 is ideal for connecting an Ethernet-enabled digital media device, such as TiVo® or Slingbox™ to the home network and the Internet. It also allows users to connect gaming consoles, like the Xbox 360®, Playstation 3® or Nintendo Wii™ to the Internet.
