The device's WLAN connectivity also delivers a wireless access option for Wi-Fi enabled devices.

The dLAN Wireless Extender offers data transfer rates of up to 85Mbps via dLAN and 54Mbps via WLAN.

The dLAN Wireless Extender works with most Wi-Fi enabled devices, including PCs, laptops, Macs, games consoles and other mobile devices. It comes in a Starter Kit which includes a dLAN Highspeed adapter (for initially connecting your existing internet connection to your home's electrical wiring system) for £139.99. On its own, the dLAN Wireless Extender costs £99.99.
