Dir-665 Xtreme N450 – A High Performance Router for Smooth Gaming and Video Streaming

DIR-665 D-Link Xtreme N450 is the first D-Link router with N450 label which means the router delivers the speeds of up to 450Mbps (in ideal conditions) by adopting the 3×3 MIMO technology which uses three distinct data streams to enable very fast data transfer rates. Computers which are embedded with 450Mbps wireless adapter enabled, such as the laptops which are embedded with Intel Centrino 2 processor, can experience faster wireless speed and greater network mobility.

The DIR-665 is powered by the latest wireless technology 802.11n. The router includes 4-port Gigabit Switch you can use for connecting the computers with Gigabit NIC adapter enabled using UTP Cat5e standards. High speed wired connection is ideal for high-intensive bandwidth applications such as multiplayer gaming, large file transfer and video streaming applications.

However, if you just need to build a wireless network for Internet sharing and other simple networking tasks such as print-sharing and document sharing, you don’t need this Dir-665 router. You can consider Belkin-Share router that enable you to share broadband Internet sharing and with the built-in USB port – you can enable a USB printer to be accessible by other users on the network easily. Belkin with Print-Gennie app allows you to configure the printer (connected to the router USB port) to share to the network easily.

Selectable Dual-Band and HD Fuel Technology

Unlike its competitor TEW691 wireless 450Mbps gigabit router which uses single 2.4 GHz frequency band, DIR-665 D-Link Xtreme N450 is powered by dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) you can select. The drawback with the selectable dual-band over simultaneous dual-band is that you cannot work with multiple wireless devices which operate in mixed frequency bands (both 2.4 and 5 GHz) in a time. But with single 5 GHz band in a time, the router provides much clearer band and less interference which is ideal for high-intensive bandwidth applications.

For gaming experiences and HD video streaming, you can select the 5 GHz radio band for cleaner band and less interference (from other wireless devices which operated in 2.4 GHz band). And with the additions of superior HD Fuel and Intelligent QoS Prioritization technologies, make your gaming and HD media streaming more enjoyable. You can provide prioritization for time-sensitive online traffic, such as smooth video streaming, responsive gaming, and smooth VoIP calls with this Intelligent QoS technology.

And to allow traveler users create secure tunneling to your network, the router supports VPN Pass-through / Multi-sessions PPTP / L2TP / IPSec. For wireless connection security, the DIR-665 supports the latest industrial wireless security WPA/WPA2 to helps protect the un-authorized access.

  • The router is designed to detect the ports with no link and bring them down, no power consumed. This helps to save the power.
  • Each different Ethernet cable lengths consume different power output. Traditionally the system supply the same power to different cable length
  • Energy star compliant

Network Management

Each of the client computers connecting to the network must be configured with a unique private IP address to allow them communicate each other and to access the internet. Configuring manually each of the computers with a static IP address is prone to the mistyping that can cause the connection problem. However, the router supports the DHCP server feature that takes care of the complexity of providing the IP address automatically to all the client computers in the network. This reduces the administration overhead in providing the IP address configuration to all the computers in the network.

One of the advantages of having the wireless network in home is apparent, no wires needed. With your XBOX console, you can install a wireless XBOX adapter to allow you play games at the comfort of your living room without the clutter of the wires. With your laptop, you can surf the internet and read the email messages by your poolside. With DIR-665 Xtreme N450, you can build your high-performance network in homes easily.
