Can’t wait to get your hands on this networking tank? Back-off a bit because you aren’t looking over a cheap gaming media. Yes, game-guilders, you are looking at the beast of the beasts, the best yet networking product of D-Link Systems, the D-Link DGL-4500 GamerLounge.
Not your typical router, with its shell, specifically designed for gaming enthusiasts, quite similar to D-Link’s wide range of DIR Series, which has an LCD Front Panel that displays the primary power and configuration status of the router. With three linear antennas mounted at the back for wireless data signaling using Wi-Fi. Three linear antennas with the purpose that if any of those receives an interference and fails, you still get to have two in continuous action leaving an uninterrupted connectivity. The router system supports Wired/LAN connectivity as common routers do, with 4 Gigabit LAN Ports allowing a transfer of over 100Mbps to 1000Mbps depending on the Interconnect Module and Ethernet Connectors used.
The DGL-4500 GamerLounge supports Wireless Draft N, making the wireless scope a whole lot wider and stronger in range than that of a usual A, B and the most common G Routers. It’s backwards compatible as well that it could be set to Wireless 802.11 N Mixed Mode Setting allowing any of the older drafts A, B, G and as well N routers to connect. Common security features like MAC address Filters, allowing specific MAC ID’s to communicate with the router or could be set the other way around. An option to enable and disable the Wireless Broadcast, which results to stealth broadcasting of one’s created SSID making other people not to detect the ID using their PC, blackberry and iPhone Wi-Fi scanners, a reliable security option which makes nobody to detect, connect and hack into your system.
Shareport Utility, an advanced concept which allows any computer connected to the Network, could either be Wired or Wireless to access a specific USB device, may it be a USB Network Printer, a USB Memory Key/Flash Drive or a USB eBook/Hard drive attached on the rear USB Connect Port of the DGL-4500 System. This allows you to access, save, copy, modify or even delete files on a USB Memory Key or USB Harddrive, makes you capable of using a USB Printer to print any document from any of your network computers, wired or wirelessly connected.
A common deal with router’s is opening specific Virtual and Application Ports to allow a certain Game or Application to connect to the Internet without being filtered or blocked by the router’s embedded firewall. On most routers you get to do trial and error test-run several times for you to get to make the virtual ports open and passive. This is a gaming router which specifically caters to game enthusiasts, so what would you expect? If you’re a gamer why worry and why deal a hard time with port opening, time is precious, you’d rather spend time banging your Logitech Keyboards rather than opening virtual ports on your router, that’s why with DGL-4500 it’s never a toll. DGL-4500 has a wide listing of all the available network games in the market and all the possible applications as well as its corresponding Virtual and Application Ports needed to be opened. Just need to pick a certain Application or Game title from the listing, hit apply then save, then go grab your game keys and play.
What proves D-Link DGL-4500 GamerLounge to be the beast of the beasts among the routers clan? Its award winning Game-Fuel System. Game-Fuel is an intellectual concept originally designed and perfected by D-Link Systems, Inc. which utilizes an Advanced Prioritization Method. Scanning and detecting available computers connected either wired or wireless through a network, defined by its respective MAC Addresses. The Game-Fuel System is so intelligent that it recognizes which among computers is of normal internet usage, with just light emailing and browsing stuff, and it actually defines if there’s a computer dealing with Online and LAN games. The science is it prioritizes bandwidth and packet distribution that it gives an elevated amount of prioritization for computers within a network demanding for a much higher bandwidth, making your online gameplay lag-free, regardless of your connection type: wired or playing wirelessly.
If you’re a hard core gamer who needs Game-Fuel to help you prioritize Gaming over anything else? Then you ain’t gonna be a badass alt-tabber if you aren’t gonna lay your hands on D-Link DGL-4500 GamerLounge! But careful, dude! This costs half the prize of your Quad Core System Units.
