"D-Link has emerged as the leader in shipping Draft 802.11n products, a clear indication that the market is confident with the technology that it has to offer," said Norm Bogen, director of networking with In-Stat, a leading research firm serving the computer and networking industries. "Despite the fact that 802.11n is still in the draft phase, the market has clearly adopted the technology as sales worldwide are increasing steadily with more and more users enjoying the increased speeds and range that the Draft 11n products deliver to home and small business networks."

"We're pleased that the market is embracing our line of 11n products, and we'll continue to develop robust solutions based on this standard for both the digital home and business environment."
