D-Link Launches New 802.11N Dual Band Router


Aggressively Priced RangeBooster N® Router Delivers 802.11n Wi-Fi Speed and Range on Both 2.4GHz and 5GHz Bands
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif.— D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today introduced the newest product in its award-winning RangeBooster N® line of 11n Wi-Fi solutions, the DIR-628, a competitively priced solution for creating a powerful home network optimized for high-definition (HD) video streaming, file sharing, VoIP calls, gaming and Web surfing.

The affordable DIR-628 launched with an MSRP of $119.99, giving the product an estimated street price (ESP) of under $100. The router offers dual band 802.11n Wi-Fi technology with selectable 2.4GHz or 5GHz radio bands, enabling users to create a high-performance network tailored to their needs and applications. A typical scenario could include checking email and sharing a broadband Internet connection using the common 2.4GHz band and then switching to the less crowded 5GHz band for more bandwidth-intensive applications such as streaming HD movies throughout the home or playing online games. It also includes D-Link’s Quality of Service (QoS) engine that prioritizes time-sensitive network traffic to enable smooth VoIP phone calls and responsive gaming.

“With its switchable 802.11n dual band technology, this new 11n router is a powerful solution for building out a digital home capable of driving a wide range of applications,” said A.J. Wang, Chief Technology Officer, D-Link. “It offers superb range and performance for anyone seeking to enhance network access at an extremely affordable price.”

The D-Link RangeBooster N Dual Band Router supports the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorized access, be it from over the wireless network or the Internet. It carries support for WPA™ and WPA2™ standards to ensure the best possible encryption, regardless of client devices. In addition, the RangeBooster N Router utilizes dual active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to help prevent potential attacks from across the Internet.

The DIR-628 is easy to install and use with the D-Link Quick Router Setup Wizard or using Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS). It is backward compatible with 802.11g and 11b devices including game consoles and digital media players.

Price and Availability

The D-Link DIR-628 is available now in select retail stores, including Best Buy, Circuit City and Frys’ Electronics; with wide spread availability through D-Link’s network of retail, etail and catalog partners beginning later this week. The DIR-628 has a MSRP of $119.99 and ESP of under $100.
