My network is faster than yours—or at least looks cooler with D-Link’s Xtreme N Gaming Router.
Designed for the best online gaming experience ever, the DGL-4500 is supposedly friendly with any incarnation of the 802.11 spec. According to CrunchGear, the unit promises speeds up to 300Mbps. Gamers can also choose between the 2.4 of 5GHZ band to help them slay opponents all over the world.
Other features include D-Link’s own GameFuel technology, which promises to cut interference from other programs to keep games running smoothly. There’s a also a nifty looking Network Activity Display, which allows users to check Internet, LAN, WAN and other various settings all from one screen.
The new 802.11n router is now shipping for $240.
