Today D-Link announced the pre-order availability of its most advanced Gaming Router to date, the D-Link® Gaming Router with Qualcomm® StreamBoost technology* (DGL-5500). The D-Link Gaming Router offers AC1300 wireless speeds with unique traffic shaping and bandwidth management coupled with four gigabit Ethernet ports to deliver the ultimate in gaming performance, media streaming and network control. The Gaming Router is now available to customers in the U.S. for pre-order through newegg.com and will begin shipping Aug. 1.

“The Gaming Router represents the ultimate in high-performance connectivity to give power users the ability and control they need to do what they love online without the concern or interruption of buffering and lag,” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Today’s action role-playing games and MMOs are more competitive than ever and with limited bandwidth coming into the home, gamers need to ensure they’re making the most of their connectivity to maintain an advantage. With Qualcomm StreamBoost technology, the new Gaming Router is designed to do just that – shape the network traffic to help gamers do more and lag less.”

The D-Link Gaming Router features Qualcomm StreamBoost technology designed to deliver a robust connected experience to users of all devices on a home network by intelligently managing and shaping traffic, and giving each device and application the priority and bandwidth required for optimal performance. Unprecedented bandwidth allocation and control features create a harmonious network where applications no longer need to compete for bandwidth, and issues such as buffering video streams, glitchy voice chats and online game latency are minimized. The intuitive StreamBoost interface is designed to allow users to view all computers, tablets, phones, and other connected devices on a home network, as well as the applications they are using and the real-time bandwidth usage of each.

 “Whether streaming video on a tablet, downloading content from iTunes or playing the latest online first person shooter, today’s connected home requires smarter management of the Internet traffic,” said Michael Cubbage, director of business development for Qualcomm Atheros’ Wireless and Wired Infrastructure Networking Business Unit. “With D-Link’s new router, users are able to enjoy multiple Internet applications across a variety of devices without issues such as lagging or frozen video. StreamBoost is designed to bring intelligent, fast and easy-to-use networking to the connected home and, as featured in D-Link’s Gaming Router, the best possible experience for every user on the home network.”
