D-Link wireless DIR-628

D-Link on Monday unveiled a new dual-band RangeBooster N router that offers 802.11n WiFi on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. The DIR-628 features D-Link's Quality of Service management engine to improve performance, while being able to switch to either 2.4GHz signals for low-intensity network throughput, or 5.4GHz for intensive file sharing and media distribution. D-Link is currently selling the DIR-628 through select retailers for $120.

"With its switchable 802.11n dual band technology, this new 11n router is a powerful solution for building out a digital home capable of driving a wide range of applications," said A.J. Wang, Chief Technology Officer for D-Link. "It offers superb range and performance for anyone seeking to enhance network access at an extremely affordable price."

    Makes Me Wonder..

    How much benefit exactly does the 5Ghz really give you besides being on a less crowded channel? This is after I just purchased a D-Link Range-Booster N router 2 months ago, so maybe I'm just feeling a little left out..
