D-Link Cuts Existing WiFi Routers’ Power Use 40%

Save on those sky rocketing domestic bills...

With power companies trying to make themselves less popular than an ice cream vendor on Everest, D-Link has chosen the perfect time to announce an advancement which will help put the pennies back in your pocket…

First seen last year in its DWA-643 and DWA-556 wireless adaptors, D-Link is expanding its rather clever ‘Green Ethernet’ technology to products you may already own – and it won’t cost you a penny.

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.”

Just one problem: the DIR-635 isn’t anywhere on that list fellas? *Hint + Hint + Hint*

Pretty please…
