I’m not sure if this is new or old news but D-Link are advertising that SkinIt skins are now available that can be used to customise D-Link products such as their newer routers.
I had a fun playing around with the skin making software, it’s easy to use and I got the hang of it straight away, I haven’t purchased a skin yet, however I might in a few weeks time.
The skins are $19.95 USD however currently the coupon ‘dlinkskins’ will get you 10% off.

D-Link have finally brought this technology to life in a limited fashion with SharePort.
