Stall-Free On-Line Gaming
An interesting router was demonstrated in action at the D-Link booth. Their so-called GameFuel gaming router features embedded technologies to automatically identify gaming data packets and to prioritize gaming bandwidth. As a result, we could see that the reaction time got much shorter, alongside with the response time from squeezing the trigger or throwing a grenade, and these things mean life or death in a combat situation.
As a live demo there were two systems were running side by side, and the player on the system with D-Link’s wireless gaming router was definitely winning. I wonder if the “winning” part is also included with the router, maybe something like a magic experience potion? :)
Protect Your Wireless Network
Now that the small home and office networks have become very widely spread, network security turned into a big and important issue that needs to be addressed. D-Link alongside with a few other networking solutions manufacturers came up with a solution that is affordable, easy to use and at the same time efficient home and small office use. The SecureSpot designed by D-Link and BeSecure Company is an all-in-one plug-n-play Internet Security Device that combines network security firewall, intrusion detection, pop-up killer and spyware killer software, content filtering options and anti-virus protection.
According to D-link, this is the first and so far only solution of the kind that provides three-level protection for the small office and home network:
- Web Level. It provides integrated setup and administration as well as maintenance of anti-virus, spam, spyware and content filtering databases.
- Device Level. On this level it provides network perimeter protection through firewall, content filtering, virus filtering, application control, identity theft and reporting.
- PC Level. It provides protection for each individual PC in the network through antivirus and spyware detection and removal, pop-up control and application control.
