Even though the 802.11n standard is expected to be finalized in November 2008 with publication in July 2009, 802.11n products based on early specs have already been making their way to stores for some time now. So if you have a relatively new laptop supporting the wireless standard you may be interested to know that D-Link has lowered the price of its entry-level 802.11n routers to below $50.

The cuts bring the prices of D-Link’s entry-level 802.11n routers down to more than 35% below those offered by rivals Linksys and Netgear, according to DigiTimes, and are part of D-Link’s efforts to drive shipments of its 802.11n products up to its goal of two million units set for this year.
