D-Link DGL-4500 Xtreme N Gaming Router
D-Link released their DGL-4500 Xtreme N Gaming Router in October 2007 to provide a faster solution for gamers desiring better Quality of Service (QOS) for both wireless and networked connections. The DGL-4500 offers both Wireless N and Gigabit connectivity options, and comes geared with tons of settings for special services including gaming. The DGL-4500 also includes a small LCD unit with buttons for the ability to browse settings and status without using a PC.
The DGL-4500 comes packaged in a black box with the usual front graphics. The box is about the same size as other routers intended for home use, measuring 9.6" x 11.1" x 3.1". On the front is a large photo of the router itself, displaying some information on the LCD.
The rear of the box showed the rear of the router, introducing the concept of Xtreme N Wireless and the gigabit ports. There's a short brief on D-Link's Gamefuel technology, which graphs showing network performance when it's enabled.
Once I opened the packaging up, I was greeted with the ever-familiar egg-crate in which many companies these days package their networking equipment. In addition to the router and power adapter, D-Link also includes the three detachable antennae, an Ethernet cable, and a CD-ROM with the Installation Wizard, Product Documentation, and World in Conflict Content
Next, I look at the production specifications and features.
