D-Link dropped some pretty cool tech at CES which included some new routers and the Rush accelerator which is basically a powerful 4x4 access point. The Rush accelerator can be switched between 2.4GHz and 5GHz and can also do up 600 Mbs over 802.11n. The routers shown consist of the new D-Link Touch and the D-Link Pocket.
The D-Link Touch sports a 3-inch interactive touchscreen that allows for easy setup, configuration and management of the router as well as internet traffic. It has dual-band capabilities and three data streams that support data transfer rates up to 450Mbps. This allows users to stream HD content faster in the 5GHz wireless band. You can also surf the web lag-free on the 2.4GHz band. An extra bonus feature is that the D-Link Touch is backwards compatible with earlier standards (802.11 a/b/g).
The D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router is designed to be a quick and crude travel router. The Pocket Router can be used multiple ways either as a wireless router that allows you to create an 802.11n Wi-Fi network or as an access point which allows you to add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network. The router includes SharePort technology. This allows you to share USB devices. Along with this the Pocket Router can be used to connect an Ethernet-ready device like a desktop or even an Xbox 360, to a Wi-Fi network.
Unfortunately, though these devices are very cool and many people will be looking to get their hands on them soon, there has been no word on pricing. Though it ha been revealed by D-Link that all three devices will be available and on the market in the first half of 2010. It seems the new year tech is already coming out fast.
