Devolo dLAN 1200+ WiFi User Review

  • Ikki
    Works well
    Review of Devolo dLAN 1200+ WiFi home distribution product by Ikki, Jan 31, 2015.
    The unit gives a strong stable signal on both the 2.4GHz and 5GHZ bands. Installation should be a matter of plugging it in and pushing a couple of buttons on an existing powerline device and this one. However I had to reset the entire Devolo network to factory default settings in Devolo cockpit before it would let me do this. That was the only issue and it has performed faultlessly ever since.

    I would recommend resetting the SSID, WiFi key and channels to your own values through Devolo cockpit. A wifi analyser shows the Xerox name for the 5GHz connection and a short Internet search seems to suggest that Xerox is the manufacturer.

    My Internet at the main router is 76 Mb/s as measured by Speedtest.net and after passing through the Devolo network then WiFi to my Galaxy Note 3, I get about 58Mb/s.
    This item was purchased for £109 from Scan in 2015. The reviewer still owns this product.
