FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., — D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced the industry’s best-selling wireless draft 11n gigabit router*, the D-Link® Xtreme N™ Gigabit Router (DIR-655), has been awarded the prestigious “Editors’ Choice” award in the latest issue of the popular computer publication, PC Magazine.

In rating today’s routers, the May issue product review praises D-Link’s latest router, noting its “robust feature set that includes wireless QoS (Quality of Service) monitoring and adjustment” and commended the Xtreme N Gigabit Router, stating that it is “feature-rich” and showed “better performance than the other three routers tested.”

“Recognition from PC Magazine, one of the industry’s most respected publications, is a testament to the engineering and design teams that work tirelessly on these products and underscores our confidence in the Draft 802.11n technology,” said Brian Larsen, associate vice president for product management for D-Link Systems, Inc, “We’re proud of the acknowledgement our Xtreme N Gigabit Router has received from the media, especially when it continues to be described by words such as robust, feature-rich, lightening-fast, and packs a punch.”
