Fountain Valley, Calif. -
D-Link has started integrating OpenDNS technology into some of its routers as
an additional security measure for home networks.

The first two D-Link
products to incorporate OpenDNS are the HD Media Router 1000 and the Whole Home
Router 1000. The former is available now for $149, while the latter will ship
in August for $119. D-Link plans to include OpenDNS in other routers in the
future.

The company said its
OpenDNS routers enable homeowners and parents to add different levels of
security to their networks. The parental controls have 50 categories from
maximum to minimum protection, and feature the ability to block sites by
content, gambling or social networking, or block an exact website.
