D-Link today announced it is now shipping its first 802.11n Wi-Fi router with 3×3 MIMO technology. The router provides better, more consistent coverage and uses three distinct data streams in a multiple-input and multiple-output smart antenna configuration to enable extremely fast data transfer rates. While most routers on consumer shelves today operate at 300Mbps or less, this router boasts speeds up to 450Mbps*.

The D-Link Xtreme N 450 Gigabit Router (DIR-665) is the industry’s first wireless router to receive Connect with Intel Centrino Ultimate-N certification. The rigorous testing for Intel Centrino compatibility assures faster and wider wireless connectivity. The DIR-655 utilizes the power of HD Fuel to play movies and games with superior technology over competing routers. It is also D-Link’s first router to pass Wi-Fi Multi-stream N certification.

“Featuring Intel Centrino compatibility, the DIR-665 is the next evolution in Wi-Fi performance technology,” says Herman Chang, product line management director for D-Link. “Wi-Fi users will enjoy smoother HD video streaming, VoIP calls, quicker gaming response, and faster file transfers at exceptional distance. We are proud to be able to deliver the next level of speed and performance that our customers demand for their home and business networks.”

The router offers both wide area and local area network (WAN/LAN) Gigabit ports, SharePort™ for printer sharing capability, selectable dual band (2.4 or 5 GHz) performance, three antennas and D-Link Green™ technology, which saves power through Wi-Fi scheduling and innovative, eco-friendly port activity and cable detection techniques.
