D-Link Xtreme N Wireless Router wins Laptop Mag's Editors Choice Award
by Bend Weekly News Sources

Publication Gives D-Link Draft 802.11n Gigabit Router Highest 5-Star Rating

D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, announced Wednesday its newest wireless home networking router, the Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-655), has been awarded the prestigious "Editors' Choice" award in the latest issue of the popular computer publication, Laptop Magazine.

In rating today's routers, the March issue product review states that D-Link's latest router "just keeps upping the 802.11n ante" and that it "narrows the gap between consumer and business Wi-Fi routers." Laptop Magazine's editorial staff gave the router a perfect five out of five-star rating, citing its Quality of Service (QoS) and incorporated Ubicom StreamEngine technology "which now handles wireless streams, smoothing VoIP calls and online gaming."

The article praised the Xtreme N Gigabit Router, noting, "with the gigabit ports we moved about 3GB of wired data in just three minutes, compared with 10 minutes for D-Link's nearest competitor."

"Recognition from one of the industry's most respected publications underscores our confidence in the Draft 802.11n technology and the Xtreme N line of wireless networking products," said AJ Wang, chief technology officer for D-Link. "Customers of our new Draft 802.11n wireless networking deploy an extremely powerful wireless platform inside their home on which they'll enjoy the benefits of increased speeds and extended range for running even the most traffic-intensive applications."

Powered by Xtreme N technology and equipped with three external antennas, the DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit Router provides superior wireless coverage for larger homes and offices, or for users running bandwidth- intensive applications. In addition, the router has earned the "Works with Windows Vista" distinction, giving users assurances that it meets the performance, ease-of-use and security standards for Microsoft's powerful new operating system.

When connected to a broadband cable or DSL modem, it provides high-speed Internet access to multiple computers, game consoles, and media players. The DIR-655 creates a secure wireless network to share photos, files, music, videos, printers, and network storage, and includes a 4-port 10/100/1000 Gigabit switch that connects Gigabit wired devices for enjoying lag-free network gaming and faster file transfers.

The D-Link Xtreme N Router is also the industry's first gigabit Draft N router to incorporate intelligent wireless Quality of Service (QoS) technology that automatically prioritizes high-bandwidth, latency-sensitive wireless data traffic, allowing users to experience smooth streaming HD video, lag-free gaming and jitter-free voice over Internet (VoIP) calls.

In addition to its distinctive styling, wireless multimedia (WMM) support and compatibility with previous wireless standards, the DIR-655 features easy installation with its Quick Adapter Setup Wizard software and Universal Plug and Play (UpnP) support.

Price and Availability

D-Link's new Xtreme N router and adapters are now available from D-Link's network of retail and online outlets as well as from the company's online store, www.dlinkshop.com. Manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP) are $179.99 for the Xtreme N Gigabit router, $141.99 for the Xtreme N Desktop Adapter (DWA-556), $119.99 for the Xtreme N Laptop Adapter (DWA-652), and $119.99 for the Xtreme N ExpressCard Adapter (DWA-643).
