D-Link launches TV/Stereo Wi-Fi link,
new DSM-320 Wireless Media Player

Fountain Valley, CA, January 20, 2004 - D-Link, announced their new DSM-320 D-Link Wireless Media Player that distributes digital music, video and photos stored on PCs to play and view on a television and/or stereo system. The 802.11g based D-Link Wireless Network Media Player enhances the usability of both a home network and a home entertainment center by creating a seamless connection between computers and consumer electronics.

Also to be available are the DSM-320R with 6 in 1 Digital Media Card Reader and a DSM-320D with built-in DVD Recorder.

"The new wireless media player gives consumers access to more content than ever before in the area where they congregate the most, the family room" said Steven Joe, President and CEO of D-Link. "Now a family can view a catalogued library of digital photos on their TV or listen to pre-set
configured MP3s in surround sound stereo, all of which represent the next step in the evolution and convergence of the CE and PC for the digital
home."

The D-Link Wireless Media Player is a stand-alone unit that resides within a home entertainment center and connects to the television and/or stereo using standard A/V or S-video cables. Using the included remote control and step-by-step TV interface, it is then easily connected to a home network via 802.11g wireless, or if preferred, through standard Ethernet cabling. In addition to streaming digital music, photos and video from networked PCs
within the home, D-Link also incorporates AOL® Services, allowing users to experience a free trial opportunity of up to 6 months for Radio@AOL®, the #1 Internet streaming radio service.

The D-Link Wireless Media Player is IEEE compliant, supports the Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) standard for immediate network recognition of the device upon installation, and also supports UPnP AV for immediate device
recognition and content playback, as well as the emerging standards set by the Digital Home Working Group. The wireless connection is secured with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) 64/128-bit encryption.
