From the Manufacturer
The Linux-based Wireless-N Broadband Router with Storage Link (WRT160NL) is an open source router targeted at IT or programmingprofessionals and hobbyists. Two detachable antennas allow flexibility for customized applications. A Storage Link USB port allows connection of a hard drive or flash-based USB storage device to easily add storage and access music, video, or data files from any computer within the network, or more securely through the Internet. This Wireless-N router – essentially the next generation of the WRT54GL – transfers data faster and further than Wireless-G. Wireless-N delivers high performance for smooth streaming video, high frame-rate gaming, fast data transfers, and heavy Internet use from multiple users – all with great range and reduced dead spots.
The WRT160NL utilizes MIMO (Multiple-In; Multiple-Out) smart antenna technology embedded in the router design. MIMO leverages the wireless signals that reflect off walls and other interior surfaces to extend the signal coverage and enhance the speed of data transmissions. The WRT160NL features two detachable antennas with SMA connectors but is designed to accept other antennas with SMA connectors as well. It has the same contemporary design and styling as all new Linksys by Cisco routers.
This router is compatible with 802.11b/g wireless devices. It also includes a built-in 4-port 10/100 Fast Ethernet switch for connecting other computers, Ethernet-enabled storage devices or other peripherals. There is also an integrated UPnP AV media server that can serve media content (audio, video and pictures) on an attached storage drive to a media adapter.
- Internet-sharing Router and 4-port Switch, with a built in speed and range enhanced Wireless Access Point
- Great for media-intensive applications like streaming video or music, and gaming
- MIMO technology uses multiple radios to create a robust signal that travels farther and helps reduce dead spots
- Storage Link lets you connect a hard drive or flash-based
USB storage device to allow access to your music, video,
or data files from anywhere within your network
