D-Link Wireless 108G Gaming Router

It's been a long time since I've been able to review a D-Link product, so why not start with one that breaks some new ground? The DGL-4300 Wireless 108G Gaming Router (and its wireless-less sibling the DGL-4100) are the first consumer routers to include a 10/100/1000 (Gigabit Ethernet) switch. And while they are not the first to incorporate QoS (Quality of Service) features, they are the first to use automatic traffic classification to attempt to simply its setup.

Since gamers tend to try anything that promises to give them an edge over their competition, D-Link has decided to position the 4300 and 4100 for that crowd. But as I found out, this powerful pair can do more than just help you out-frag your online opponents.
