Linksys CES cavalcade


Who wants 802.11n? Linksys has a full selection of new routers and bridges for the N generation including a $99 switch that looks like an alien spaceship.

Take the Linksys Ultra RangePlus Wireless-N Gigabit Router for example. It has 802.11n and Gigabit Ethernet and should hit the $100 mark when it’s released.

There is also the DMA2100 which is a Media Center Extender that shuttles video and audio over N. The DMA220 includes a DVD player.

The WVC54GCA isn’t an N device but it is completely wireless. It’s essentially a webcam that doubles as a security camera and includes motion detection and online remote control.

Generally, the new designs are quite nice. One standout product is their new network control interface which puts all of your devices, laptops and NAS included, into one easy-to-read screen. You can click on items to get full specs and information and get automatic updates. It ships with most new Linksys devices.
