Gigabit 802.11n Router Features QoS Capability

Using the latest Draft 802.11n wireless technology, the D-Link Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) and its accompanying Xtreme N desktop and notebook adapters (DWA-552 and DWA-652, respectively) are designed for small businesses, consumers, and gamers who demand the highest performance possible from their wireless networks. With faster speeds and longer range than that found in 802.11g wireless products, the Xtreme N Router incorporates Intelligent Wireless Quality of Service (QoS) technology that automatically prioritizes high-bandwidth, latency-sensitive wireless data traffic, allowing users to experience smooth streaming HD video, lag-free gaming, and jitter-free Voice-over-Internet calls. The QoS capability is powered by StreamEngine technology from Ubicom.

The router ships with Gigabit LAN and WAN ports. It also comes with an integrated wireless security wizard, Windows Connect Now (WCN) support for easy connection to WCN devices, Network Magic management features from Pure Networks, removable antennas for flexible installation, and a wall-mount option. A 3-by-3 antenna configuration ensures high performance. Other features include Wireless Multimedia support and backward compatibility with 802.11g and 802.11b standards.


The Xtreme N Gigabit Router (DIR-655) and optional adapters are available now.


Manufacturer's suggested prices are $199.99 for the Xtreme N Gigabit Router, $119.99 for the Xtreme N Notebook Adapter (DWA-652), and $141.99 for the Xtreme N Desktop Adapter (DWA-552). The RangeBooster N USB Adapter (DWA0142) is $149.99.
