Combining an ADSL2+ modem and an Ethernet/Wi-Fi router in one box is nothing new, but D-Link has gone two steps further.
The addition of a USB print server makes it easy to share a low-cost inkjet or laser printer without having to pay extra for a network interface (which probably won't be compatible with that printer's eventual replacement) or a stand-alone print server.
It also avoids the inconvenience associated with using a printer shared from one of several PCs.
The DVA-G3670 also includes a dual VoIP adaptor, complete with failover support for a regular phone line and QoS in the router to ensure voice traffic is prioritised for best voice quality.
"Until now, there has not been a single networking product that combines all the functions typically needed in a modern home or small office," said Maurice Famularo, marketing director for D-Link Australia and New Zealand.
"You could buy a modem router for wireless networking and fast broadband, or a router with an integrated print server or VoIP phone connection, but never a complete all-in-one solution."
But the DVA-G3670 does have some shortcomings - see page 2.
