D-Link all-in-one DIR-685 router now out

D-Link has began shipping its Xtreme N DIR-685 all-in-one router that was first introduced back at CES in January. The device has a built-in draft N Wi-Fi module that allows it to communicate with network attached storage devices and a 3.2-inch LCD screen that lets it play streaming video or double as a digital photo frame. The screen can also display device status information via graphs and gauges. D-Link's SharePort feature lets networked computers share printers and other USB devices.

The screen can also be programmed to display weather forecasts and other live streaming Internet content. The NAS feature supports both UPnP server functions and BitTorrent downloads, with content stored on an optional 1TB, 2.5-inch SATA drive that can be inserted into the side of the DIR-685. There is also a built-in FTP server that gives users access to documents, photos, music and other local or networked content.

The router has two USB ports and two gigabit Ethernet ports. Energy efficiency is ensured with Energy Star specifications for savings of up to 30 percent, and a Wi-Fi Scheduler can turn off the Wi-Fi radio at a specified time.

The D-Link Xtreme N DIR-685 router is priced at $300.
