D-Link 802.11n routers now compatible with Windows 7
D-Link, the end-to-end computer networking solutions provider for consumer and business, today announced its 802.11n routers have passed Windows 7 Logo testing, qualifying them for the "Compatible with Windows 7" Logo program.
Windows 7 is an advanced version of the Microsoft Windows operating system for use on personal computers. Windows 7 is intended to be a more focused, incremental upgrade to the Windows line, with the goal of being fully compatible with applications and hardware that are compatible with its predecessor Windows Vista.
The Windows 7 Logo program is designed to help companies develop systems and devices that have been tested to ensure that they meet Microsoft Corp. standards for Windows 7, with the shared goal of improving usability for the customer.
"Due to the automatic setup and connectivity capabilities built into Windows 7, it’s easy to get the most out of your D-Link network. Microsoft, with Windows 7, is looking at the bigger picture of the entire network and not just individual devices. Now, when you start plugging in all your devices, they will be auto-discovered and auto-configured," said Mr. Jayesh Kotak, VP- Product Management, D-Link (India) Ltd.
He further added, "This will help users realize additional functionality out of their networks and devices, and in the long run, this will help us lower support calls, benefiting the user and D-Link."
The D-Link Xtreme N Wireless Router (DIR-655) was the first router in the market to receive Windows 7 certification, with more models expected to pass testing soon. The following D-Link routers have already been tested for compatibility and have qualified to display the Windows 7 logo on their packaging.
