TrustedReviews writes D-Link has released new firmware for its DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit router and DIR-855 dual channel router. The special thing about this new update is that it cuts the power consumption of the DIR-655 by 32 percent while the DIR-855 gets a 41 percent power consumption cut.
The DIR-655 Xtreme N Gigabit router and the even smarter DIR-855 dual channel router (above) are the lucky recipients of Green Technology which will arrive via an impending firmware update and the consequences are dramatic.
