D-Link has unveiled its latest router, the DHP-1320, a combination Wireless-N and PowerLine 200Mbps hybrid. Packing three 10/100 ethernet ports, WiFi g/n wireless with WPA and WPA2 encryption, and up to 200Mbps data through your home or office electrical wiring, the D-Link DHP-1320 promises sufficient speed to stream HD video without having to worry what walls are in the way.
D-Link's latest two-bay NAS has arrived, in the shape of the D-Link ShareCenter Pulse. The first product from the company's fledgling consumer-centric refresh, with the DNS-320 packing a pair of 3.5-inch SATA hard-drive bays, UPnP media streaming, iTunes server functionality, standalone BitTorrent downloads and various power management systems that D-Link reckons make the ShareCenter Pulse relatively green.
They include hard-drive hibernation and "Green Ethernet", which intelligently controls networking power consumption based on the state of your cabling, together with a smart fan that automatically adjusts according to temperature. You can also schedule fixed downtime, turning the NAS off when you won't be needing it, and use it with Apple's Time Machine backup.
The Boxee Box by D-Link is shipping, and it's played right into iFixit's destructive hands. Inside it's an admirable mixture of easily-unscrewed components and a vast heatsink keeping Intel's Atom CE4110 SoC cool.
The standalone Boxee Box by D-Link is finally shipping, with 33 countries getting the $199.99 home entertainment box at launch. While we've known to expect the Boxee Box for some time now, what's particularly exciting is that Boxee is in the process of inking deals with Netflix and Hulu Plus, which will see the streaming content services both eventually available to users.
Boxee finally have an official release date for their Boxee Box by D-Link, with the media streaming cube shipping on November 10, 2010 to customers who pre-order it through Amazon in the US or Best Buy and Future Shop in Canada, and then November 17 through D-Link's normal distributors. Street price is estimated at $199 (the MRSP is $229) and the Boxee Box supports Full HD 1080p and 5.1 surround sound.
It's been a long time since we heard anything about the D-Link built Boxee Box, but we're willing to say that it was worth the wait to hear good news such as this. The Box is still primed to launch some time in November, for the same price of $199. The change comes more in the software: the new Box will feature a Webkit Browser, and thanks to some choice words from Rob Spectre, it looks like they're going to make a hard push for HTML5.
D-Link is big in the network hardware market for home and business users. The company has announced that it is doubling the security on its line of home network routers in an effort to stay ahead of the continually escalating attacks on networks today.
The first Boxee Box by D-Link has turned up, though it's on Boxee's own desks rather than out in the wild. Not expected to launch until November, the Tegra 2-based set-top box is a standalone appliance for running the Boxee home entertainment platform.
Boxee has admitted their its plans to launch the Boxee Box by D-Link - the standalone Tegra 2 based media player demonstrated back at CES 2010 - were "overly ambitious", and that they will indeed miss their Q2 2010 launch window. Instead, the Boxee Box will make its retail debut in November across the US and Canada.
D-Link's myPocket 3G mobile router has cleared the FCC, and with it some specification details for all of those wondering how this differentiates itself from Novatel's MiFi. According to the user manual, the myPocket 3G supports 850/1900MHz HSPA 7.2Mbps, making it ideal for the US market, and unlike the MiFi it can connect to up to 16 (rather than five) WiFi b/g clients at any one time.
