D-Link's Gig wireless box forgets the 'and'

D-Link's announced a Gigabit wireless router - but don't get too excited, as it's not some ten-fold breakthrough in radio bandwidth. Sadly, the Gigabit bit is only on the wired side, with the box having a four-port Gig switch built in.

What it does show is how fast Gigabit Ethernet is reaching the desktop - in smaller businesses and homes, at least, where new PCs now come with it as standard. The DI-724GU Gigabit office router includes all the other features we've come to expect from a wireless router, including 54Mbit/s 802.11g Wi-Fi, a firewall, Web filtering to block access to inappropriate URLs, and a USB print server.
