If there's one thing that'll get one's attention, it's a snazzy tagline. And D-Link has one. The company has just released their new Amplifi family of home networking solutions, including the HD Media Router 1000 with HD Fuel (DIR-657) for managing high bandwidth HD traffic and streaming, the Whole Home Router 1000 (DIR-645) and Wi-Fi Booster (DAP-1525) with exclusive SmartBeam technology for pushing wireless signals into the farthest corners of homes to deliver whole home coverage, and PowerLine 500 products (DHP-500AV, DHP-501AV, DHP-540) for adding bandwidth over existing electrical wiring.
The Amplifi HD Media Router 1000 with HD Fuel automatically manages traffic flow and optimizes broadband connections to give priority to high-bandwidth entertainment, allowing consumers to watch streaming content on their Boxee Box by D-Link, play online video games with Xbox 360 or make Skype calls without the lags or glitches found with standard routers. Definitely a boon for those with bandwidth issues.
The IPv6-ready Whole Home Router
1000 features up to 300 Mbps speed, four Gigabit Ethernet ports, advanced QoS bandwidth prioritization, SharePort Plus for sharing USB devices such as printers or security cameras, and 128-bit security encryption with advanced Wi-Fi Protected Setup for a secure, plug-and-play home network.
D-Link’s PowerLine 500 products use a building’s existing electrical wiring to deliver secure, fast connectivity to otherwise hard-to-reach places, such as a basements or attics. With the PowerLine AV 500 Adapter (DHP-500AV), PowerLine 500 Adapter Starter Kit (DHP-501AV), and the PowerLine AV 500 four-port Gigabit Switch (DHP-540), there are no cables to run, holes to drill or wireless signals to configure. Easily plug, play and transform any conventional power outlet into a fully-functioning Ethernet port and your entire home or small office into a wall-to-wall network.
As for pricing? All of them will be available soon for between $99.99 and $199.99.
