LAS VEGAS, January 4 - LAS VEGAS, BOOTH 36232, SOUTH HALL, LVCC, January 04, 2010

D-Link will highlight the next-generation in digital home networking and
solutions at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) here this week,
demonstrating how today's consumers can enjoy affordable, easy-to-use
connectivity in their homes like never before. With a focus on the "Link Your
Life" theme, the digital home networking pioneer will preview some of the
hottest devices to enhance digital home entertainment, monitoring and
connectivity, including:

Home Entertainment

The Boxee Box by D-Link — A winner of the Consumer Electronics
Association's Best of Innovations award for 2010, the Boxee Box by D-Link
reinterprets what TV should be - it is a set-top box that delivers movies, TV
shows, music and photos from a user's PC, home network and the Internet to
their HDTV using a remote control. With Boxee software's core social
features, it makes it easy for friends to share newly discovered content
through social networks like Twitter, Facebook and others.

The D-Link(r) Pebble(tm) — No other media player of its size, style and
price offers 802.11n wireless technology with full home networking
capabilities. Also a CEA Innovations honoree, it can stream data from
wherever it is stored — in USB thumbdrives, or SD/XM/Flash memory cards, in
network storage (NAS) devices, PCs or on the Internet.

Home Monitoring:

The D-Link Home Monitoring Starter Kit is an affordable, easy-to-use and
innovative "Connected Home Monitor" system that provides homeowners and
renters with new levels of security for their property and loved ones.
Designed for quick and easy installation by the user, this CEA Innovations
Award-winning system connects via broadband router in the home, and can then
be remotely monitored and controlled through a personalized web portal
account at mydlink.com. Alerts from wireless sensors around the home are
instantly relayed by text, email and voice-call to the consumer and their
designated contacts.

The Home Monitor can be expanded with the D-Link Home Energy Monitoring
Starter Kit. Another CEA Innovations honoree, it is the first product that
lets consumers measure energy consumption of electrical appliances in the
home, turning the Home Monitor into the ultimate smart energy "Green
Machine". It actually changes the way homeowners or renters deal with the
age-old challenge of how to keep their home energy consumption to a minimum.
It also provides practical tools for power management. When linked to the
Home Monitoring Starter Kit, consumers can use the mydlink(TM) portal to
program devices to power-down when the home is empty, helping reduce carbon
emissions and reduce utility bills by saving electricity.

The D-Link 3G Door Phone is the newest idea for adding another level of
surveillance for the home. It acts like - and is powered the same as - an
ordinary doorbell. But it is not ordinary. It is the first doorbell of its
kind to allow homeowners to get a full view of visitors to their property
from wherever they are - at home or away - using their 3G mobile phones. A
built-in fixed focus .1 megapixel CMOS camera captures the images of visitors
and streams the information to the PC or 3G mobile device, an LED indicator
lets the homeowner know that the device is working, and an illuminated button
allows easy visibility when it is dark outside.


The D-Link Rush(tm) is an Xtreme N 600 Duo HD MediaBridge kit and is
D-Link's fastest, most far-reaching and most secure wireless device yet. It
takes home networking to a new level of performance for homeowners who demand
the fastest streaming possible of high-definition content, such as movies, HD
video and photos. There is no need to replace the home router - it boosts the
power of any existing 802.11 a, b, g or n router with up to 600Mbps* speed
and greater signal coverage.

The D-Link Touch(tm) blends power, speed, range, security, functionality
and energy efficiency into one economical and attractive router for homes or
small businesses with increasing multimedia applications. Its concurrent
dual-band capabilities and three data streams support data transfer rates up
to 450Mbps*. It sports a 3-inch interactive touch screen for easy setup,
configuration and management of the router and Internet traffic.

The D-Link Wireless N Pocket Router is an ideal travel companion
featuring multi-mode functionality. It can be used either as a wireless
router to create an 802.11n Wi-Fi network anywhere one is needed, or as an
access point (AP) to add Wi-Fi to an existing wired network. It is small
enough for travelers to carry with them, includes a travel case for
convenience and SharePort(TM) technology to enable users to share USB

In addition to introducing the industry's fastest wireless home access
points and routers, we will be demonstrating mydlink and NetEasy(R), D-Link's
newest solutions for making digital home connectivity true Plug-and-Play.

mydlink — D-Link's path to the future of digital home connectivity will
be paved with mydlink-enabled products created for people who long to embrace
a world connected through the Internet, but are afraid they lack the
technical expertise to do so. mydlink products remove the learning curve that
is typically associated with high-tech devices because they are truly
Plug-and-Play compatible with extremely easy configuration. mydlink provides
easy and straightforward access to all things digital in the home from an
intuitive, convenient website (www.mydlink.com).

NetEasy is the newest software program from D-Link designed to improve
the complete user experience for all of our products. It makes installation
and setup quicker, easier and nearly automatic. It improves the user's
ability to manage their networked devices and receive valuable status
information. It improves access to the core functions and cross-functions of
those devices. And, it decreases the user's need to obtain technical support
by offering proactive troubleshooting NetEasy will be rolled out beginning Q1
2010 with our Xtreme N Wireless Router.
