Belkin's New Router Frees Up Internet Traffic

By Tony Ibrahim | Friday | 10/08/2012

With a variety of TVs, gaming consoles, smartphones and tablets communicating with one another via DLNA/AirPlay technology, traffic on your home network is congesting. Belkin is looking to add more lanes to free this congestion up with their new 802.11 ac dual band router.

The company has launched a wireless router that jumps on the ac standard, enabling speeds almost "three times faster than [the] existing 802.11n technology." This technology endows Belkin's AC1200DB router with the ability to stream videos across multiple devices easily.

"With a majority of video content being consumed on devices such as smart TVs, smartphones, and tablets instead of a home computer, today's tech-savvy families have an increasing need for simultaneous connections to multiple devices throughout their homes," said Mike Chen, senior director of Belkin's networking business.

"The enhanced speed and expanded coverage of Belkin's AC router enables families to achieve the truly seamless online experiences they crave."

The AC1200DB provides gigabit speeds wirelessly over an extended range with greater reliability. It also features two USB ports along its spine which can be used to wirelessly access a printer or hard-disk drive.

New LG 65   New LG 65" Ultra High Definition TV, Complete With Pop Down Speakers: REVIEW
LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
