The D-Link EXO DIR-879 router is pretty

Internet Routers
[MUSIC] Hi guys. This is the EXO DIR-879 Wi-Fi router from D-Link. Look at it. It's got a nice color, nice design. I can play with these collapsible antennas here all day. Okay, maybe five minutes, but you know what I mean. It's fast, too. In my testing, it is actually one of the fastest AC 1900 router on the market. And it has very good range, too. Unfortunately, it has a rather buggy firmware. For example, if you use the smart connect feature, that combines the 2.4 gigahertz And foggyhood blends into a single wi-fi network. The performance was as good as if you used two separate wi-fi networks, one for each band. Also in my trials, sometimes it randomly disconnected itself from the internet, with no reason. And would require a restart or repair. Now this would not happen consistently and might never happen to you, but when it happens, it sure is annoying. Now the [UNKNOWN] Share a similar feature and web user interface as [UNKNOWN] Router [UNKNOWN] Dealing. The interface is easy to use and it's great for home user who want to get it up and running fast. But for savvy user board to customize a whole network to the Mac, it's kind of lagging a little bit. Also, this one here is a feel free router it has just a regular usual four gigabit land port and one gigabit one or internet port. There's no [INAUDIBLE] or SD cart slot installed in some other [INAUDIBLE] routers. So all things considered, this one here at the cost of $140 Can be a good buy as long as you believe that you would get better via future footwear upgrade because I do because I'm an optimist. You see, I don't care if the glass is half full. I like it empty because then I can fill it with cold beer and then immediately empty it again. And that's because I'm [UNKNOWN] and it's summer time.
