D-Link Wireless N 300 Gigabit Router arrives
D-Link in the morning brought out a wireless router with a relatively low-cost way to get both faster Wi-Fi and wired speeds. The Wireless N 300 Gigabit Router has a MIMO (multiple-in, multiple-out) antenna array that can hit up to 300Mbps over 802.11n Wi-Fi as well as gigabit Ethernet jacks both for the incoming Internet traffic and four wired users. Unusually, no mention has been made of whether it supports both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands, but it does have quality of service prioritization.
Other extras bring a WPA setup button for secure links as well as VPN support. Although the bundled setup CD is for Windows users only, the router can use web-only setup and should work with Linux and Macs along with anything else running a modern browser.
Stores should start carrying D-Link's new router immediately for $90 and will see it spread to Office Depot and Office Max in May.
