Create On/Off Schedules For Your Devices

Your devices should work for you whenever you want them to, right? We agree — and that’s why we made the Smart Plug. You can set device schedules so that you walk into a brightly-lit home every day after work with your favorite song playing and the AC exactly where you want it.

Really Easy Setup

Connect to an existing Wi-Fi network with a simple push of the Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) button on the Smart Plug and on the router. It’s hassle-free and gets you connected in minutes.

Let The Smart Plug Worry About The Unexpected

Did you leave the electric blanket plugged in? How about the iron? Hey, don’t stress. The Smart Plug has a built-in thermal sensor that will shut off your devices if the plug overheats.

1. Maximum wireless signal rate derived from draft IEEE 802.11ac and IEEE 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.

D-Link’s DSL-2890AL has been out since last year, but somehow it’s managed to miss inclusion in the round-ups and reviews we’ve done in APC since. We therefore took the opportunity of the release of the new limited edition D-Link DSL-2890AL/LE version — which is essentially identical to the normal version, but comes in bright red — to give it a test run. (For those who aren’t after the lipstick look, it’s also available in a more discrete black version.)

d-link-dsl-2890

Even two years in, 802.11ac routers with built-in ADSL modems are still fairly thin on the ground, so it’s something of a relief that the DSL-2890AL is a relatively good option. It combines solid wireless performance with an easy-to-use web interface and a good spread of features — and it does so at a fair price.

Despite not being the newest router on the market, things are still reasonably impressive from a hardware standpoint — like the bulk of 802.11ac routers, this one’s based on a Broadcom chipset and comes with four Gigabit Ethernet ports (and you can reconfigure one of these as a WAN port for hooking into the NBN) plus one USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0 port for plugging in storage devices or a printer. (There’s a caveat to using that USB 3.0 port for storage — D-Link’s interface warns you that it “may” interfere with 2.4GHz wireless performance.

Thankfully, you can switch the port to USB 2.0 mode to avoid this, which is still fast enough for even the most demanding media streaming.) There’s also tweaker-pleasing features like a hardware power switch (no more yanking the power cable) and dedicated Wi-Fi on/off button.

Router interfaces have come a long way in the last decade, and D-Link’s are some of the best examples of that. The web interface here is one of the easiest to use, making initial set up a synch, but also providing detailed and helpful configuration tips and information for advanced features. This is displayed off to the right-hand side of basically every setting page — and it’s all in well-written, easy-to-understand English so even relatively novice networkers can figure out what each setting does. It’s even good at suggesting settings — warning you with a pop-up, for example, if you try to leave the Wi-Fi settings page without turning on security.

The D-Link DSL-2890AL/LE is not lacking for software features either. You can run both DLNA and iTunes servers from connected USB devices and also share USB drive files with PCs via the standard Samba protocol. There’s reasonably fine-grained control over network prioritisation in the quality of service screen, with some preconfigured rules already in place (prioritising YouTube traffic highly to avoid streaming problems, for example) and you can even specify what percentage of your connection each of the four priority settings is allowed to hog.

Likewise there’s better-than-average control over network access, with website filtering and scheduled network access times that can be applied to specific devices — you could prevent a specific PC from accessing a certain website and shut down its access completely between 10pm and a 6am, for example.

I have a house of 1200 SFT, will it cover whole house, when i use WIFI?

DIR_860L_wireless_ac_logo

Please note that actual data throughput and coverage will vary from home to home based upon the environmental conditions in the area and where the D-Link router is actually placed within the network.

Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, buildings materials, construction, network overhead and competing network overlap from other wireless devices and networks may impede and affect the actual data throughput rate as well. These variable conditions along with any environmental factors such as the weather and humidity which also have an impact on the actual wireless signal range make it very difficult to determine your actual signal range.

However, there are also other available options to assist you in increasing your wireless range as well such as changing channels on the access point to see if signal strength improves with each channel change and or adding a wireless range extender such as our D-Link DAP-1320 product, which can amplify a weak wireless signal from within your network and retransmit it out therefore extending your wireless range as well.

I was replaced with a new router and this was unable to send signals more than 10 meters. Signal range was dropped and unable to get in side room.

Answers:

We are sorry to hear that you are having connectivity issues with the DIR-600L. Based on the information you described in your review, D-Link suggests the following: If your router is not performing properly (freezing, automatically rebooting, disconnecting, etc), this could be happening for a number of reasons.

Please check the following:

1. Ensure the router is in a well ventilated area. If the router does not get adequate airflow, it could overheat.

 

Wireless Client Mode D-Link

 

2.Ensure the firmware is up to date. Firmware is the “Brains” of the router, it is the programming that tells it how to work. D-Link will release new firmware versions when bugs are reported and fixed. Upgrading the firmware may correct issues you are experiencing.

3. Perform a factory reset on the router. On the back of the router locate a pinhole marked “RESET”. Press this button with the end of a paperclip for about 8-10 seconds and release it – The light should go off and then come back on. After the router finishes rebooting, you will need to re-configure your settings (for both the Wireless and Internet).

If the issue still persists, please contact our technical support team at: www.dlink.com/support. Thank you for being a D-Link customer.
