Ruckus MediaFlex Router

As a counterpoint to D-Link's MediaLounge, Ruckus is offering its uniquely-shaped MediaFlex router. Rather than connect computers to TVs and other offline electronics, Ruckus' network switch is built to ensure that video and other media files sensitive to interference can reach Internet-connected devices without trouble. The characteristic U shape is is more than cosmetic, according to the company: the rounded design points six high-gain Wi-Fi antennas in different directions and intelligently adapts its reception to nearby devices. The technology not only prevents collisions between multiple streams but can boost range by as much as 300%. An optimization routine named SmartCast also gives top priority to media traffic over regular Internet access. While primarily sold to cable companies and other large-scale providers, the router is also available through MobilePlanet and other stores for $105. [Via Gearlog]
