Linksys announced the newest addition to its family of wireless-N products, the Wireless-N Gigabit Gaming Router WRT330N. Designed as a high performance gaming router for home networks, the WRT330N features Wireless-N technology that is designed to offer up to four times the range and twelve times the throughput speed of Wireless-G.* It includes four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports, one Gigabit WAN port and an industrial design tailored specifically to the gamer audience. An optimized Quality of Service implementation within the WRT330N examines network traffic based on customizable settings and gives gaming packets the highest priority.
The WRT330N supports PC and game consoles, online games-on-demand services, multi-player online role-playing game servers, and head-to-head multiplayer games. Its network optimization also makes the WRT330N an ideal router for other latency-sensitive applications such as Voice over IP and Internet cameras.
Wireless transmissions made using the WRT330N can be encoded with industrial-strength encryption using WPA2, WPA, or WEP to help protect data and privacy. It can serve as a DHCP server, supports VPN pass-through, and has a powerful SPI firewall to help protect against intruders and most known Internet attacks. Enabling these security features is easy with the Linksys Web browser-based configuration utility.
Available now the WRT330N has an estimated street price of $199.99.
