D-Link Launches New 802.11n Dual Band Router

D-Link has launched a new RangeBooster N Router which delivers 802.11n Wi-Fi on both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands.

The affordable DIR-628 launched with an MSRP of $119.99, giving the product an estimated street price (ESP) of under $100. The router offers dual band 802.11n Wi-Fi technology with selectable 2.4GHz or 5GHz radio bands, enabling users to create a high-performance network tailored to their needs and applications. A typical scenario could include checking email and sharing a broadband Internet connection using the common 2.4GHz band and then switching to the less crowded 5GHz band for more bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming HD movies throughout the home or playing online games. It also includes D-Link's Quality of Service (QoS) engine that prioritizes time-sensitive network traffic to enable smooth VoIP phone calls and responsive gaming.

"With its switchable 802.11n dual band technology, this new 11n router is a powerful solution for building out a digital home capable of driving a wide range of applications," said A.J. Wang, Chief Technology Officer, D-Link. "It offers superb range and performance for anyone seeking to enhance network access at an extremely affordable price."

The D-Link RangeBooster N Dual Band Router supports the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorized access, be it from over the wireless network or the Internet. It carries support for WPA™ and WPA2™ standards to ensure the best possible encryption, regardless of client devices. In addition, the RangeBooster N Router utilizes dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to help prevent potential attacks from across the Internet.
