FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - May 25, 2011) - D-Link® today announced its new Wireless N Dual Band MediaBridge® (DAP-1513), allowing consumers to easily expand a home network by wirelessly connecting up to four devices. Equipped with 802.11n technology, 2.4 GHz and 5GHz dual-band, for an enhanced media experience and a four-port Fast Ethernet switch, the DAP-1513 is ideal for connecting a wide range of network-ready devices for streaming HD videos, playing online games and sharing music, photos, movies, and more within a home network.

Featuring selectable dual-band to offer flexibility on how to best connect to the home network, the DAP-1513 can bridge a wireless signal from either a 2.4GHz or 5GHz network.
