3 April 2013 – devolo has released the latest version of its Powerline software, the dLAN® Cockpit 4. The free tool has enhanced functionality to make monitoring and configuring the home network even more convenient for users.
All dLAN adapters in the network can now be seamlessly updated to the latest version of the firmware, ensuring that the entire dLAN Powerline home network is up-to-date and all adapters are operating at their peak with regard to performance and energy efficiency. In addition to this, the users can also conveniently automate updates and allow the software to regularly search and install available updates.
Users can also control even more adapter settings through the software, including temporarily blocking an adapter completely, so that no more data can be transferred until the user enables the adapter again. In addition, the status LEDs on the adapter can also be shut off completely.
Integrated operating manuals are also available via the Cockpit 4 and the digital manual is automatically available for all adapters in the network. Furthermore, using a new documentation function, the current configuration of the user’s home network and additional information can be stored. This allows employees on the devolo hotline to generate more accurate and faster analysis, thereby providing more targeted assistance.
The new software also features existing functions such as graphically displaying connection speeds between individual adapters in the home network, useful tips for improving transmission quality and individual security settings.
Version 4 of the devolo dLAN Cockpit is available now as a free download from the devolo website at www.devolo.de/download. The software is available for all current Windows versions (such as Windows Vista, 7, 8) and for Mac OS X and Linux (Ubuntu) and works with all adapters of the current dLAN 200 and dLAN 500 product ranges.
