The D-Link DHN-500 Network Card device provides a PCI HomeNet Network Card that comes with two modular RJ 11 phone ports and one RJ 45 10 BaseT port. This is one of the most affordable and simplest solutions for sharing access to the Internet, peripherals and data files in a network without duplicating resources for all connected computer systems. The technology behind this robust device enables common phone wires to concurrently accommodate voice services and high capacity network data with software for Internet sharing like the MidCore MidPoint Lite. With this device, it is possible to connect a maximum of 25 computer systems on a single network for every network interface card (NIC). The D-Link DHN-500 Network Card device functions with Windows 2000, Windows NT4, Windows 98 and Windows 95.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The MidCore MidPoint Lite software that comes bundled with the D-Link DHN-500 Network Card device is used for sharing a modem device. IT is generally a proxy server with a built in DHCP server to deliver dynamic IP addresses in the event that users do not want to designate the addresses one by on to every machine. This feature is very convenient especially for users who use several machines. The software functions well if users utilize static IP addresses but every port has to mapped manually – for every protocol users want to utilize, mapping the port it utilizes to the machine that has the MidPoint Lite software installed is mandatory. It must be noted however that users will have to configure every client machine which will in turn restrict what users will be capable of sharing via the Internet. As an example, users cannot play particular games that communicate across arbitrary ports. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and D-Link DHN-500 Network Card errors before installing any driver updates.
