Belkin Advance N900 DB arrives ahead of CES
Belkin's turn at CES saw it introduce the Advance N900 DB, what may be one of the last 802.11n Wi-Fi routers before 802.11ac arrives. The new dual-band router has a full six antennas with MultiBeam support that can more reliably deliver its 450Mbps across a home. IntelliStream also promises a more advance form of traffic priority that focuses on gaming and video over basic tasks.
Along with four available gigabit Ethernet ports, the N900 DB has a pair of USB ports for network-attached storage and printers. Inside, a 600MHz processor supports multitasking and can more elegantly handle a large amount of concurrent network traffic.
The new router doesn't arrive until April, although pre-orders will start this month. Belkin anticipates pricing it at $200.
