Cisco intros Wi-fi routers

Cisco on Thursday announced the release of a trio of new 802.11n Wi-Fi networking products, with the WET610N Ethernet Bridge, and WRT400N and WRT320N routers. All operate on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies. The WET610N provides the faster wireless link to devices that only have an Ethernet port, such as the Xbox 360 or some network media hubs. It prioritizes data packets for smooth video delivery that nearly eliminates dropped frames due to interference Cisco claims.

As for the routers, the WRT400N is Linksys' new dual-band offering and supplies both 2.4GHz and 5GHz connections at the same time, while the WRT320N can only establish one network; to compensate, it gets a gigabit Ethernet port absent on the 100Mbps-only mid-range model.

The three wireless networking devices are available now, with the WRT320N priced at $130, the WRT400N at $150 and the WET610N at $100. [via Crave]

    And yet...

    None have a USB port for sharing drives on the network. It ought to for those prices.
