D-Link announced today that it would be offering a free upgrade to owners of existing Xtreme N and RangeBooster N routers that feature D-Link SharePort technology. SharePort allows printers and other USB connected devices to be shared over the wireless network.

SharePort turns the local USB port of the router into a responsive virtual port allowing the use of USB over TCP/IP. Owners of existing DIR-655, DIR-825, DIR-855, DGL-4500 Gaming Router with GameFuel® and the D-Link RangeBooster N DIR-628 can upgrade their routers to allow Macs to use the technology from the D-Link support page.

"SharePort has been one of the most popular and well-received upgrades to our 802.11n routers by PC users," said Daniel Kelley, senior director of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. in Fountain Valley, Calif. "We are pleased that Mac users also will be able to benefit from our SharePort USB-sharing technology available with our Xtreme N and RangeBooster N wireless router product lines. In offering this free upgrade we are further meeting the consumer's need for the most sought-after features of network functionality, and offering the ideal centerpiece for a wireless network in the digital home or small office."
