The D-Link AC Smartbeam 1750 uses the 802.11AC wireless networking standard which offer significant benefits to the users, the most obvious of which is an increase in the potential top connection speed. WiFi devices that use one of the older standards can work properly with the 1750 Smartbeam, because the router is fully backwards compatible. That means that whether it is a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop, the device should be able to connect to the router without any problems.
The D-Link AC1200 is able to deliver simultaneous, dual bands with faster speeds and less interference, resulting in faster connections and fewer lags. Able to work with existing as well as future Wi-Fi devices, the AC1200 is up to 10 times faster than traditional Ethernet. With its four Gigabit Ethernet ports and one Gigabit WAN port, the AC1200 is always able to keep things running smoothly while delivering a fast stream.
If you’re looking for a router that’s unobtrusive in your home, the tri-band D-Link DIR-890L/R isn’t it. It’s been described as looking like a space-age spider or a modern-day flying drone, and it’s the largest router by size out there right now. But it’s fast. Actually, it’s incredibly fast. That, coupled with a good interface and excellent customer service, puts this new D-Link router at the forefront despite a few initial problems with the firmware.
The D-Link DIR-880L is a router that efficiently distributes bandwidth, provides decent levels of speed and assists you in easily monitoring the network through wireless technology. While the router doesn’t score too high in terms of performance, it certainly provides decent speed for its price range. Within the same category, Asus and Linksys routers cost more for the same features.
The D-Link DIR-885L AC3100 is a powerful 802.11ac router. The DIR-885L has 4 external antennae and has beamforming for directional transmission, which decreases interference and increases range, enough that devices will receive strong signal even in a large home. The DIR-885L has a maximum throughput of 2600Mbps on 5GHz and 1000Mbps on 2.4GHz, though note that most devices support a maximum of only 300Mbps on the 2.4GHz bands. With simultaneous transmission, this adds up to a theoretical maximum 3100Mbps.
For people who want a traditional appearance, the DLink DIR-895 might not be the right router. Admittedly, it looks like it scuttled out of the mind of George Lucas or J.J. Abrams. Either way, the red exterior and eight antennas make the DIR895 look like something from the future. It features sharp lines and makes an imposing appearance. The router almost resembles a futuristic crab.
