D-Link gives power to online gamers

AFTER whetting appetites at Ingram Micro’s showcase event in July, last month D-Link finally launched what it claims is the first wireless gaming router.

The GamerLounge features D-Link’s GameFuel priority technology, a new intelligent packet-processing engine which gives online games precedence for bandwidth over all other internet applications, email and FTP transfers.

D-Link says the router provides gamers with increased control to maximise online performance for the ultimate no-lag gaming experience and surpasses the high-performance demands of today’s video games.

The router is designed to work with PC, Xbox and PlayStation 2 games.

According to D-Link, it enables users to set up a high-performance gaming network that offers the fastest wired and wireless speeds available from a single broadband device.

The company claims GamerLounge is the first router to feature four 1,000Mbit/s gigabit ethernet ports with up to 108Mbit/s 802.11g wireless connectivity for fast LAN and WLAN connections. A Flash-based game-centric user interface is said to allow multiple ports or port ranges to be configured with ease, and enables users to quickly change settings and adjust performance for individual applications.

GamerLounge is set to be very popular in New Zealand, says D-Link country manager Juliana Moss. Although it will be sold mainly through large retailers such as Harvey Norman, Noel Leeming and Bond and Bond, says Moss, it will also be available to general resellers and independent retailers through D-Link distributors Dove Electronics, Lan1 and Ingram Micro.
