Intelligent QoS engine
With D-Link’s Intelligent QoS Technology, wired and wireless traffic is analyzed and separated into multiple data streams. The DIR-655’s embedded WISH Stream Engine improves wireless media streaming by moving time-sensitive tagged traffic to the front of the WMM queue and optimizing RF settings for optimal wireless throughput. WISH (Wireless Intelligent Stream Handling) automatically detects multimedia, VoIP, and online gaming applications, requiring no user configuration. It works transparently with other QoS technologies to immediately improve wireless media speed.
Advanced network security
The Xtreme N™ Gigabit Router supports the latest wireless security features to help prevent unauthorized access, be it from over a wireless network or the Internet. Support for WEP, WPA, and WPA2 standards ensure that you will be able to use the best possible encryption regardless of your client devices. In addition, the Xtreme N™ Gigabit Router utilizes Dual Active Firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks from across the Internet.
Share a storage device, printer, or 3g mobile internet connection
Using the SharePort™ Network USB Utility, you can connect an external hard drive or multifunction printer to the router’s USB port to share disk space or printing and scanning functions among family members or a group of users. This USB port also supports compatible D-Link 3G adapters, so you can connect your router to a 3G mobile service to provide Internet access to a group while travelling.
