    features to palpitate the taste buds of even the most superlative online

    wireless networking router*, the updated GameFuel™ technology lets you
    get your game on smoother, with no lag time. MSRP: $239.99.
--  Take advantage of the benefits of both worlds -- wired and wireless --
    with D-Link's PowerLine HD Network Kit (DHP-301).**  Now you can extend
    your home network by using the existing electrical wiring already in your
    house or apartment, and enjoy high-definition media streaming, online
    gaming and other next-generation digital home applications. It's a great
    complement to a wireless home network. MSRP: $189.99.
--  Give the gift of media sharing in the home whether you are at your PC
    or TV. Give the new D-Link MediaLounge Wireless HD Media Player (DSM-520)

    wireless or wired, it can stream music, photos and HD videos to your TV and
    home entertainment systems quickly and with the highest quality technology
    available. MSRP $249.99.

Mobile Solutions

--  For the traveling businessperson in your life, you can't go wrong
    giving the D-Link Mobile Wireless Router (DIR-450). The Mobile Wireless
    Router is designed to provide a wireless "hot spot" anywhere the user goes
    within a wireless broadband network. Connect the router to an EV-DO
    notebook adapter and they can check their email and browse the Web while
    sharing files, printers and storage content. It supports secure wireless
    protocols for protection against viruses, hacking and identity theft, and
    it can be installed into a wireless network in minutes with automatic
    Internet connection. Suggested retail price: $229.99.

Store & Share

--  If you've got a virtual library of family photos, videos and other
    precious data stored on your PCs and laptops around the house, you probably
    want to share them. Now you can with the new award-winning D-Link 2-Bay
    Network Storage Enclosure (DNS-323). Using the latest technology in high-
    volume storage (up to two terabytes of memory on two 3.5-inch SATA hard
    drives which are sold separately) and high-speed data transfer (a gigabit
    Ethernet connection is built in), the DNS-323 lets you stream files
    throughout your home network. MSRP: $229.99.

Security First

--  Maybe the ultimate gift this season is the gift of a safe and secure
    home network. D-Link's SECURESPOT (DSD-150) is designed to prevent unwanted
    Internet content from invading your family domain. Supporting up to four
    computers with the initial one-year subscription at $99.99***, it is the
    first hardware, software and web-based solution to combat damaging viruses
    and spam, annoying pop-ups and dangerous content. This multi-layered
    security device with extensive parental controls is housed in a small box
    that installs between a broadband modem and a router, providing extra
    firewall protection. After the first year, the cost is $79.99 per year, and
    additional licenses are available for $19.99 each***.
