Linksys WRT350N router
Coincidental to the Lenovo announcement, Linksys has announced the WRT350N, a combination wireless/gigabit Ethernet router that will support the draft version of 802.11n. In addition to its speed, the router will boast a USB 2.0 Storage Link for connecting hard drives and media players to your network, and UPnP support for instant detection of the content in Windows XP. MIMO technology should increase the range, coverage and reliability of wireless signals. Users worried about kicking other networks offline may be glad to see a "good neighbor" mode, which restricts the radio band of the router when other wireless devices are detected. No date or price for the hardware has been set.
