AirLive WN-5000R Router

AirLive today released the WN-5000R, its entry into the field of Draft 2.0-capable 802.11n wireless routers. Rather than tout a theoretical maximum speed, the company claims the network device produces a significant increase in real-world speed; the combination of multiple-in, multiple-out antennas and optimized transmitters produces 120Mbps of usable bandwidth. This is frequently six times the practical speed of 802.11g and offers longer range in the process, the company claims. In contrast to some newer routers, the 5000R is low-profile and more likely to fit in a tightly-packed setup.

Four 100Mbps Ethernet ports provide near-similar performance for wired computers, while wireless systems can take advantage of simplified Wi-Fi Protected Setup with USB adapters to establish a secure link by tapping a button, saving new users from the challenged of setting up WEP or WPA encryption. AirLive has not discussed exact availability but should be making the router available in the US through resellers.

    stupid 10/100 ports

    Why cripple the hardlinks with 10/100 when the wireless side can go so much faster?
