D Link DIR 645 – Whole Home Router 1000

Front ViewThe Whole Home Router 1000 Wireless N Router (DIR-645) is the newest consumer router from D-Link designed to handle large home networks.  It utilizes “SmartBeam” technology that is supposedly able to send focused beams of bandwidth to individual wireless devices simultaneously, which effectively delivers uninterrupted connectivity to any device, anywhere in your home.  Also included is an active USB SharePort™ Plus for streaming USB devices, and with 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports, you can connect your favorite entertainment devices as well, and give you up to 300 Mbps speed and advanced QoS bandwidth prioritization you need for seamless HD video streams, high-performance gaming, and VOIP calls without annoying glitches or lags.


This is not your average router, which is evident in its design (round cylinder, instead of the usual box-shaped routers).  This is a D-Link Green router, which is as good for your wallet as it is for the environment.  According to D-Link, the Whole Home Router 1000 is designed to conserve energy, protect our environment from harmful substances and reduce waste by using recyclable packaging.  D-Link Green devices provide eco-friendly alternatives without compromising performance.
