FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – Dec. 5, 2012 – Designed to extend an existing wireless network to the farthest corners of a home, small office or even the backyard, D-Link today announced the push-button Wireless Range Extender (DAP-1320). The compact and ultra-portable Wireless Range Extender is ideal for pushing wireless signals to those hard-to-reach areas – eliminating Wi-Fi dead zones and broadening the range of a wireless network for seamless everyday Internet activities such as emailing, chatting, music, video streaming, and VoIP calling.

“As the number of wireless devices increases in a household, consumers are always looking to expand and strengthen their Wi-Fi coverage into the farthest corners of the home,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Not only does our Wireless Range Extender offer whole home coverage for today’s connected home, but it works with any router brand with a push of a button and also complements the user experience with other D-Link® products – watch seamless streaming content on a MovieNite™ Plus or keep an eye of things with D-Link’s Cloud Cameras without any glitches.”

Delivering speeds of up to 300Mbps, the Wireless Range Extender expands network connectivity to wireless devices such as laptops, smartphones and tablets, offering fast web-browsing, smooth online gaming, uninterrupted music and video streaming, fast downloading/uploading speeds, and Skype or Facetime calls without any lag time or glitches. The device is equipped with Wireless N technology and uses multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi signals to significantly outperform previous-generation Wireless G devices. The antennas make use of a home’s environment by bouncing multiple wireless signals off walls and ceilings to work around obstructions and help eliminate dead spots. In addition, the Wireless Range Extender features a simple one-button installation and is universally compatible with all wireless brands[i] for added flexibility. Simply press the WPS button on the existing router and then on the Wireless Range Extender to sync and instantly increase the coverage of a wireless home network.

This is a cute box and all, but most people will be waiting for a N450 Wireless-n box that works in the 5Ghz range. Just too much interference and this only works at 300Mbps...going to be butt-slow when used in the real-world.
Just a little puppy trying to make it in a big digital world.
