Linksys has announced the WRT610N router ,a new simultaneous dual-N band router that enables it to use 802.11n WiFi on both 5 and 2.4GHz at the same time.The Two simultaneous, separate, radio bands double your available bandwidth.
Also the benefit is in being able to use each band for separate, bandwidth intensive applications; 5GHz has a shorter range but higher throughput, while 2.4GHz is backward compatible with earlier WiFi versions that would usually slow the whole network down.
It is an Internet-sharing Router and 4-port Gigabit Switch, with a built-in, dual-band, speed and range enhanced Wireless Access Point.Linksys include their Entertainment Optimized Networking (EON) technology, which can intelligently prioritise time-sensitive data such as high-definition video or online gaming.The WRT610N is designed so that its 5GHz band automatically gives priority to high-definition video without the need for manual configuration. PC users can tweak their networks to give priority to certain devices, like gaming consoles, over others.
Its price in India will be around Rs. 6000 .
