The rate at which Wi-Fi networks are popping up in homes and offices is impressive. To save money and to have less of an impact on the environment many of the components and accessories we use with our wireless networks and computers are going green.
D-Link announced today that it is the first company to offer green Wi-Fi networking gear for home networks. According to D-Link its Green home network Wi-Fi routers are capable of saving up to 40% in power usage. Power savings are gained from the ability for the routers to detect cable length and link status and adjust power accordingly. The routers can also be programmed to turn the Wi-Fi radio off to save power.
