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. D-Link quotes the DIR-655 as benefiting from up to a 32 per cent power saving with the DIR-855 even more impressive at up to 41 per cent.

“D-Link is proud to be taking the lead in integrating innovative, power-saving technology into its home and business networking solutions that doesn’t sacrifice performance or functionality,” said D-Link Marketing Manager Andrew Mulholland. “By offering green upgrades to our most popular Wi-Fi routers, we’re helping protect the environment whilst our customers save money in the process.”
