LAS VEGAS--D-Link's passion for 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard is both deep and wide.
Apart from the existing
They are the AC1750 Dual-Band Gigabit Cloud Router (model DIR-868L), and the AC1200 Dual-Band Gigabit Cloud Router (model DIR-860L). Both use the same Broadcom chip as that used in the DIR-865L. And similar to the DIR-865L, they are both cloud-based routers, allowing users to remotely manage their home network via a mobile device or Web browser.
The two new routers don't look anything like the DIR-865L, however. Instead, they use the same design as the DGL-5500, looking like a cyclic computer speaker. Both have the same feature set and come with one USB 3.0 port that works with D-Link's free SharePort mobile app, enabling users to share digital content to connected devices.
The only difference between the two is that the flagship DIR-868L supports the three-stream setup of both 802.11ac and 802.11n standards to offer up to 1,300Mbps Wi-Fi data speeds on the 5Ghz band and up to 450Mbps on the 2.4Ghz band. The DIR-860L, on the other hand, supports only the two-stream setup of both Wi-Fi standards to offer 900Mbps on the 5GHz band and 300Mbps on the 2.4Ghz band.
Both routers will be available later this year with prices being announced at that time.
