Since most homes and offices are heading towards wireless connectivity, manufacturers are
reducing the size of their wireless routers by decreasing the physical Ethernet connectivity options. Yet D-Link embeds an 8-port hub into this N-series router. Though some might not find this move necessary, small office and cybercafe owners will love it. The DIR-632 features an 8-port 10/100 Mb/s switch which can prove beneficial for those who need additional wired networking along with a wireless N network. It is one-step ahead by implementing the IPv6 protocol for a future-ready networking scenario. The router is similar to other conventional routers in the category, which feature SPI firewall,
WPA and WPA2 security options, WPS, OoS, access control a port forwarding. The router has a 51 look with a black glossy shell, but is slightly wider due to the integration of the 8-port switch within. The USB port on the rear can be configured I USB sharing (storage or printer), 3G internet or WCN. Basic testing of the router revealed good performance a a wider range throw even in dead 5 where conventional routers find hard perform. The DIR-632 should definit considered for a future-proof netwo and at just Rs 4,700, it's a steal.
