The DLNA-certified Media Server built-into this router allows you to stream media content directly onto computers, game consoles and media players like the Boxee Box by D-Link. Insert a SD card complete with your photos, music and videos in to the card slot to share content with everyone in your home. You can even share any USB device (like a Printer or Hard Drive), courtesy of D-Link's SharePort technology across your network with friends and family.
With some routers, all wired and wireless traffic, including Voice over IP (VoIP), video streaming, online gaming, and web browsing are mixed together into a single data stream. By handling data this way, applications such as streaming video may not have the bandwidth they need to give you a flawless viewing experience. With D-Link's QoS technology, wired and wireless traffic is analyzed and separated into multiple data streams. Different applications like voice, video, and data will be automatically detected and prioritized so that you can game, talk with friends online overseas or stream the latest films without any lag or glitches.
With the growing number of Internet-enabled applications requiring IP addresses, the supply of IP addresses under the current Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) system has already been exhausted. The IPv6 protocol solves this network addressing exhaustion by creating more IP addresses, but migration from IPv4 to IPv6 is not necessarily automatic. This D-Link product is IPv6 Certified and ready for the future.
D-Link's Wireless N HD Media Router is part of D-Link Green, D-Link's program for providing eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance.
