Digitimes reports that the three leading consumer networking device vendors are holding the line on product prices this holiday season.
D-Link, Linksys and Netgear have mostly kept the price of consumer networking devices—especially 802.11n products—unchanged, instead of resorting to more aggressive pricing to boost sales during the year-end peak season, according to industry sources.
The article said that the companies are still looking for indications of how strong demand will be for holiday buying and said that consumers "may start seeing discount offers from the vendors in early 2008 if sales do not pick up as expected in the following weeks".
Linksys today announced the first of its Ultra RangePlus wireless networking products.
The Ultra RangePlus Dual-Band Wireless-N Gigabit Router (WRT600N) and Dual-Band Wireless-N Notebook Adapter (WPC600N) are 802.11n Draft 2.0 Wi-Fi Certified and operate in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands. The WRT600N has two radios for simultaneous dual-band coverage. Both products are based on Broadcom Intensi-Fi draft 11n chipsets.
The Linksys RV042 packs a lot of small-biz routing features into a compact chassis.
