Energy is becoming a crucial global issue because of the global energy crisis and the environmental impact of energy consumption.
D-Link has initiated some forward thinking with the company’s “green” WiFi routers. The new routers possess green features that will make it more energy efficient.
Three routers in the company’s Xtreme N WiFi line will now have Green Ethernet technology. This feature lets the router sense the cable length and link status and adjusts power based on the results. There is also a WiFi scheduler that allows user to initiate automatic shutdowns. The green features now allow users to save up to 32 per cent on power. That is a very significant saving. Other models even offer a 41 per cent saving.
I just bought a new D-Link router but these new models may just make me switch because of their eco-friendly features.
