|Triple WAN Router integrated with mydlink cloud platform & HomeZone technology for seamless networking access|
Ever had full connection in your living room, only for it to drop to one bar after heading to your bedroom, even with range extenders and repeaters to extend wireless coverage at home? D-Link, one of the world’s largest suppliers of home networking solutions presents the answer with the new D-Link DSL-2877AL Dual Band Wireless AC750 Router / ADSL 2+ Modem Router.
This multi-WAN (wide area network) router provides high-speed Internet and wireless coverage, and is equipped with industry-leading HomeZone technology. When paired with the new smart switching device DMG-112A, it provides seamless coverage and connectivity throughout one’s wireless network even when moving from room to room. The router’s ‘Triple WAN’ function with WAN fail-over settings ensures uninterrupted internet connections for home work and entertainment.
Cutting-Edge HomeZone Technology for Seamless Coverage at Home
The DSL-2877A works well with DMG-112A, the latest smart switching device by D-Link. Made available to the consumer market for the first time, HomeZone technology enables the devices to communicate with each other, enhancing one’s home Wi-Fi network, by allowing automatic and seamless transitions across different networking devices on the same Wi-Fi network (i.e. the repeater and the main router). To set-up, simply plug the DMG-112A into a USB power adapter within the wireless range of the DSL-2877AL and set it up using the D-Link One Touch mobile app available for free on iOS and Android devices. The DMG-112A will automatically connect and communicate with the router for uninterrupted connectivity.
High-Speed Wired and Wireless Connectivity with Failover Features
The DSL-2877AL Dual Band Wireless AC750 Router / ADSL2+ Modem Router uses the latest high speed wireless technology to bring you fast speeds via 3 external 5dBi antennas of up to 300Mbps on 11n and 433Mbps on 11ac. This allows users to enjoy media streaming, Internet calls, online gaming, and content-rich web surfing throughout one’s home without disconnection. In addition, the router is designed with four Fast Ethernet ports and one gigabit WAN port for solid wired performance for media centers and game consoles. Two USB2.0 ports also allow users to connect to USB storage for data sharing over-the-air or D-Link 3G/4G LTE dongle for WAN and failover. Furthermore, the 10/100Mbps switch also provides wired connections for other devices such as network storage, to ensure data is always accessible.
The router’s ‘Triple WAN’ function using asymmetric digital subscriber line (ADSL), gigabit WAN port and D-Link 3G/4G LTE dongle allows users to connect to ADSL, cable modem, fibre optic, or 3G/4G LTE networks. Users can also set their preferred WAN priority for WAN failover to ensure continuous connectivity.
Traffic Prioritization and Dual-Band Technology
The router’s built-in Quality of Service (QoS) engine additionally allows users to prioritize traffic, ensuring that important or bandwidth-intensive applications are receiving optimal bandwidth. At the same time, it has dual-band support, allowing users to operate on two concurrent Wi-Fi bands for optimum performance. Users can surf the Internet and chat on the 2.4GHz band, while simultaneously stream high-definition media or play online games on the 5GHz band on another device. On top of that, each band can operate as a separate Wi-Fi network, giving customizability according to one’s needs. One can even configure a guest zone for visitors without granting access to the rest of one’s network!
Simple Setup and Easy to Secure
Taking away the hassle of a complicated process, D-Link allows users with a simple and quick way to get connected – the D-Link One Touch app. It provides a step-by-step guide for the DSL-2877AL installation, and allows users to configure or change the router’s IP address, Wi-Fi settings, and even upgrade firmware without the need for a computer. WPA/WPA2 security can be setup within minutes, and the built-in firewall protects against virus attacks and gives users access control to customize network restrictions.
Use mydlink to Monitor Your Network
