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....

When we initially heard about Intel's Wireless Display (WiDi for short) technology, we immediately suspected it would become the next killer application for notebooks. The dream of wireless streaming for video, particularly in consumer machines at consumer-level prices, was a big one. To date, WiDi hasn't really grabbed a huge chunk of mind share, at least not in the way of some other things -- things like Android and iOS. That said, it's still a viable option, and it's only getting better with time. D-Link is now looking to cash in on the solution by shipping their MainStage for Wireless Display... Read more...
Looking to expand your home network? Love streaming media? You're in luck. D-Link has just announced their new Wireless N Dual Band MediaBridge, also known as the DAP-1513. The device is meant to bridge a wireless signal from either a 2.4GHz o a 5GHz network quicky and easily, enabling consumers to expand their wireless home network by connecting up to four additional devices – ideal for a variety of network-connected devices for streaming HD videos, playing online games and sharing media. You'll find four Ethernet ports, an 802.11n module and Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) for push-button security... Read more...
Trying to cut cables these days? It's time for Spring Cleaning in your network rack, and D-Link knows it. This week they announced the DIR-651, a Wireless N 300 Gigabit router that's geared for speed. It'll handle 802.11n connections as well as provide four Gigabit Ethernet ports on the rear. The Intelligent Quality of Service (QoS) allows the DIR-651 to enable users to browse the web, stream media and share data more efficiently, and the new antenna design is made to distribute Wi-Fi signals over a larger radius. In addition to increased speed, the router also supports WPA and WPA2 security standards,... Read more...
This is a pretty interesting situation. Had this shipped a decade ago, we suspect D-Link would've sold out in record time. But today, we aren't sure how many people will even give these two new products a passing glance. Much like Logitech's new Unifying USB nub, the Wireless N 150 Pico shown here is probably the smallest external Wi-Fi dongle out there. It plugs right into a USB port and just barely sticks out; it's so tiny that you could definitely leave it plugged in at all times. But when even netbooks and low-end tablets have Wi-Fi as standard equipment, is there seriously a need for external... Read more...
Why buy a plain 'ole router when you can have this? D-Link's latest device is a whole lot of things in one, with the Wireless-N PowerLine Router (DHP-1320) handling both wireless Internet distribution and PowerLine networking. It's an IPv6-ready solution that merges PowerLine 200 Mbps technology with a Wireless-N router and Ethernet ports, giving users the ability to extend Internet over your home wiring network while also providing a new wireless access point. Having your cake and eating it too, it sounds like. The DHP-1320 extends wired and wireless networks to all devices in the home, allowing... Read more...
Free flowing bandwidth; it's an enabler. There was a time when no one had cable modems or DSL lines. Remember that? Alright, fair enough, neither do we. Regardless, having a 10Mb+ data connection to your domicile is a thing of beauty, because there's obviously so much you can do with it. The question becomes not so much what the cable or telecom companies tell you, or sell to you, with respect to what you can do with it, but rather what a little imagination, and some optimized hardware and software can do with it. And that's exactly the premise by which service platforms like Roku, Apple TV, Google... Read more...

The media streamer market has really become crowded as of late, with the new Apple TV, a few new Roku boxes and tons of lesser-known products coming to light. It's clear that the Web is the next big portal for content, and now Boxee is hoping to enjoy some of this market with the Boxee Box, produced by D-Link. The Box itself has been announced and floating around for the better part of this year, but a ship date kept slipping and slipping. Now the slipping is over. Boxee has today announced that November 10th will mark the day in which the first Boxee Box units begin shipping. Those who pre-ordered... Read more...
The little HTPC (Home Theater PC) and media center software start-up, Boxee, has been making a splash on the web scene since it first debuted in public beta back in January 2010.  The software was developed in an effort for cross-platform support and as such, has received a lot of air-play on the internet by end users, social media as well as Boxee's platform partners.  With the ability to support a "soup to nuts" offering of web-delivered content from big name providers such as NetFlix, YouTube, CBS and ABC, as well as stream locally stored media from NAS devices, USB drives, optical...

Is little Johnny always complaining about his Internet connection crapping out on the other end of your home? There are a number of solutions, one of which is to make him go outside and play like we used to do as kids. Barring that, you can string Ethernet cord through and around walls and get him plugged him, or if D-Link has its druthers, you'll pick up its new PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender "Powerline technology is the perfect complement to Wi-Fi connectivity," said Harrison Albert, Director at D-Link Middle East & Africa. "Our D-Link PowerLine AV Wireless N Extender is the most cost-effective... Read more...
And so it begins. Boxee, which has generally let users access a wealth of free online content from a variety of locations, has finally seen the light: you need premium content (or a great Plan B) to stay afloat in today's environment. The company has been quoted as saying that they aren't planning to make anything from their partnership with D-Link on the Boxee Box, but now that they've opened this window, there's really no turning back. Premium content has arrived on Boxee, and we suspect that more and more of it will continue to arrive. And that's a good thing for everyone, regardless if you... Read more...
Waiting is a tough, tough thing. Waiting on a new gadget is even tougher. Late last year, the folks at Boxee seemed to think that the Boxee Box (which was being built by D-Link) would be available to consumers in the first half of 2010. It's sort of tough to believe, but the first half of 2010 is just about over. With the latter half quickly approaching, Boxee has issued an update to everyone wondering if we'd see the Boxee Box go on sale in the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, that doesn't look like it will be the case. According to a new post on Boxee's own blog, the original plan was to... Read more...
What's better than a WLAN router? Why, a WWAN router, of course! D-Link has just introduced its newest 3.5G router in the DIR-412, which is a compact wireless access point that essentially enables multiple users with Wi-Fi devices to share a single cellular data connection. The portable router ships with 802.11n functionality, which essentially enables users to plug in their WWAN modem and then distribute that signal to any device with a Wi-Fi chip. You'll obviously see a significant slow down if you try to connect to many users to a single connection, but it definitely has merit in a pinch. No... Read more...
