|Operate two concurrent, high-speed Wi-Fi bands Dual-band with the DIR-816L|
Do you have multiple smart devices that require internet connectivity? Worry not, as D-Link, one of the world’s biggest suppliers of home networking products, is introducing the DIR-816L Wireless AC750 Dual-Band Cloud Router, a powerful yet affordable wireless networking solution for the tech savvy.
The DIR-816L combines high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity via dual-band technology and fast Ethernet ports to deliver a seamless networking experience for multiple devices at any one time. Additionally, the DIR-816L’s wireless AC technology is able to reach the furthest confines of your apartment, making it ideal for homes with multiple walls and partitions.
“With technology becoming increasingly user-friendly and affordable in Singapore, the average person has more than one smart device, with smartphones, tablets, laptops, and even smart TVs attempting to connect to the router at the same time”, said Mr. Jonathan Quek, Marketing Director for D-Link International. “Simultaneous connectivity with multiple devices is therefore a key element of the DIR-816L. It is set to be the perfect networking solution, providing a stable and secure connection for households with many devices.”
Two Bandwidths, One Router
In terms of raw performance, the DIR-816L promises swift combined Wi-Fi speeds of up to 750Mbps. However, the key feature of the router is its dual-band wireless AC that allows you to operate two concurrent, high-speed Wi-Fi bands. Users can surf the web and chat online on the 2.4 GHz band, while concurrently streaming high-definition digital media and play online games on the 5 GHz band. Each band can also operate as a separate Wi-Fi network, giving you the ability to customize your network according to your connectivity needs. For instance, you can configure a zone to give guests Internet connectivity without them accessing the rest of your network, ideal for those who host friends and relatives at their homes regularly!
Access your Favorite Files Anytime, Anywhere
Through the mydlink SharePort app, users can connect a USB storage drive to the router to instantly create a personal cloud storage space to access or share their favorite files even away from home. Setting up only requires four simple steps:
- Plug the storage device containing your favourite media content (be it music, videos or pictures) into the USB port located at the rear panel of the DIR-816L.
- Install the mydlink SharePort app from the Apple app store or Google Play and launch it.
- Log-in locally if you are at home, or remotely if you are outside.
- You should see the DIR-816L listed as a potential connection. Select it!
Bingo! Your smart device is now connected to USB storage drive via the DIR-816L and you should see all your media content categorized neatly through an easy-to-navigate user interface. The files can also be accessed via mydlink SharePort even when you are away from home, as long as the storage device is plugged into the router. No longer do you have to fill your smart devices to the brim just to enjoy media content at anytime, anywhere.
Stay Connected to Everything that you Love 24/7
With the DIR-816L being mydlink enabled, home monitoring is now a truly simple experience. Effortlessly access your network, view active connections to the router, modify settings, or block someone entirely from your network, all from any Internet connected PC, iOS or Android device via the mydlink app, no matter where you are. Parents can also stay informed and in control of which sites their children are visiting.
Simple Setup, Serious Security
For D-Link, setting up your Internet was never meant to be a complicated process. Get the router up and running in no time right from the comfort of your sofa using the QRS (Quick Router Setup) Mobile app from the Apple app store or Google Play. Avoid the typical setup hassles of conventional routers as the simple interface walks you through the setup process step-by-step to get connected faster and easier than you dreamed possible.
WPA/WPA2 wireless security can also be implemented within minutes with the wireless network setup wizard, or Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), which establishes a secure connection to new devices without the need to modify settings or manually create passwords.

The D-Link DIR-816L mydlink Cloud AC750 router will be available from Q2 2015 at all authorized retailers at an SRP of Php3,400.
