D-Link Xtreme N Router

Although the high-speed 802.11n WiFi specification is not set to become official until 2008, D-Link today released a slew of networking devices built on the initial draft standard. At the core is the Xtreme N Gigabit Router, a three-antenna network switch that can connect at up to 14 times the real-world speed of the current 802.11g standard (which currently connects between 20 and 25 Mbps). The router also has gigabit Ethernet ports for Internet and local traffic so that wired and wireless devices alike can connect at speeds well beyond 100 Mbps. The Gigabit Router is equally notable as the first 802.11n device to offer built-in intelligent quality-of-service traffic shaping, says D-Link. This prioritizes games, video streams, and other low-latency data over less critical connections such as web browsers. D-Link's router is available immediately for Macs and Windows PCs at a price of $200.

Accordingly, D-Link also released a PCI-based Desktop Adapter as well as a PC Card Laptop Adapter for most portables. Both will also ship today for $120 each.
