D-Link debuts three 802.11n wireless devices to enable a wireless home—the D-Link Rush that boosts network speeds for existing routers; D-Link Touch that combines high speed and range with functionality in the digital home, and D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router that offers convenient wireless connectivity on the go.

The D-Link Rush (DAP-1560) is touted as D-Link's fastest, most far-reaching and most secure wireless device yet. It takes home networking to a new level of performance for homeowners who demand the fastest streaming possible of high-definition content, such as movies, HD video and photos. There is no need to replace the home router—its unique 4x4 antenna design helps boost the power of any existing 802.11 a, b, g or n router with up to 600Mbps speed and greater signal coverage.

The dual-band selectable device transmits in 2.4GHz wireless band for applications such as surfing the Internet or in 5GHz wireless band for HD media streaming, online gaming and large data file transfer. The latest D-Link AP can also be used as a wireless client to Ethernet-enabled media devices such as video game consoles, digital video recorders, and digital media adapters for seamless access to the Internet.

The D-Link Touch (DIR-865) blends power, speed, range, security, functionality and energy efficiency into one economical and attractive router for homes or small businesses with ever-growing multimedia applications. It sports a 3-inch interactive touch screen for easy setup, configuration and management of the router and internet traffic.

Its concurrent dual-band capabilities and three data streams support data transfer rates up to 450Mbps, allowing users to stream HD content faster than ever before in the 5GHz wireless band, while surfing the Internet without lag-time and checking email on the 2.4GHz band. The 802.11n Wi-Fi router is backward compatible to earlier standards (802.11 a/b/g).

Lastly, the D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router is a suitable travel companion featuring multi-mode functionality. It can be used either as a wireless router to create an 802.11n Wi-Fi network anywhere one is needed, or as an access point to add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network. It is small enough for travellers to carry with them, includes a travel case for convenience and SharePort technology to enable users to share USB devices. The device also can be used to connect an Ethernet-ready device, such as a desktop PC or Xbox 360, to a Wi-Fi network for increased flexibility and convenience.

Lightweight and compact with its own travel case, the Pocket Router is small enough to carry while travelling and sets up easily to share an Internet connection or connect to an existing wired network in a conference room, hotel room or anywhere a Wi-Fi network is needed. It delivers powerful 802.11n performance and offers the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorised access.

The D-Link Rush, the D-Link Touch and the D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router will be available in the first half of 2010 through the company's network of retail and retail outlets, and at D-Link's online store. Pricing will be announced when the products ship.
