D-Link unveils game-ready 802.11n router

updated 11:00 am EDT, Tue October 30, 2007

Xtreme N Gaming Router

Catering to a growing number of gamers that use wireless networks for game sessions, D-Link today launched the Xtreme N Gaming Router. The Draft 2.0-spec device cuts down on the bandwidth and latency problems that sometimes plague Wi-Fi through intelligence: the device includes packet routing that prioritizes games regardless of the title or even the operating system, supporting Macs, Windows PCs, and game consoles. The router can optionally run its 802.11n connection on the 5GHz band to reduce interference and includes an unusually high-performance processor to handle large traffic loads.

The new network device provides four gigabit Ethernet ports for local wired clients and a USB port for Windows users sharing storage through Connect Now; users can keep track of most essential information through a built-in OLED screen that provides bandwidth and settings info without having to access a web browser. The Gaming Router should be available now at some retail shops for $240 and will be available on a wider basis before the end of the year.
