The best way to navigate through any network is by using a router, but beware all routers are not created equally. One of the best dual band wireless router you can use today is the D-Link DIR-868L, which is designed to enable the efficient flow of your network bandwidth, with robust security features. The D-Link Wireless AC1750 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router is designed to deliver reliable next generation coverage and wireless speed to all your digital Wi-Fi devices.


When you look closely at the D-Link DIR-868L, the unique cylinder shape is bound to catch your attention. This type of design makes it difficult to place the router in any angle you want or mount it on a wall. Not been able to place it on your wall won’t matter much, as you’re getting the router to enable faster connections and give you uninterrupted Wi-Fi. This premium wireless router comes with dual band speeds of 450 and 1300Mbps, and has features that helps the device avoid interferences in your connections.

This best Wi-Fi router is what you need to stream HD video, games, TV shows, and connect multiple devices all at the same time. Since this router uses the latest most advanced routing AC technology, it also has features that makes it compatible with the old still popular 802.11a/b/g/n technology. This most powerful wireless router has free mobile apps designed for easy setup, instant remote monitoring, and quick and immediate access to digital contents from anywhere using your tablet or smartphone.

The d link cloud router is truly optimized to support instant free internet access, file sharing, online gaming and video streaming. It uses a special SmartBeam technology which comes with the power to enhance your Wi-Fi connection. With this dual band router, you’ll be able to access media on the 5GHz and 2.4GHz frequencies at the same time without losing signal power.

The simple design do come with some limitations. It only has two different color lights, which are the internet and power buttons. You should be aware that the device cannot be used as an access point or media bridge, as is common with other premium wireless routers. In simple terms, you can use it as an 802.11ac client for best Ethernet-ready devices. Regardless, you’re able to still connect to the internet via Ethernet as an 802.11n client. If these features are truly important to you, you can buy a separate device to use to help with those features you require.

D-Link DIR-651 Wireless N 300 Gigabit Router Connect you desktop computer to a wireless network and access a high-speed Internet connection, transfer files and stream media from greater distances across your home than previous-generation Wireless G* technology.



The D-Link Wireless N 300 Gigabit Router (DIR-651) comes equipped with 4 Gigabit ports to provide speeds up to 10x faster* than standard 10/100 ports. It also uses 802.11n technology with multiple intelligent antennas to maximize the speed and range of your wireless signal to significantly outperform 802.11g devices1. With the addition of Intelligent Quality of Service (QoS), data streams are separated which helps organize and prioritize your network traffic so your video streaming, gaming, and VoIP calls run smoother over both your wired and wireless network.

1.Maximum wireless signal rate derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, buildings materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link RELATIVE performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link Wireless N devices.

2.1-Year Limited Warranty available only in the USA and Canada.

3.Computer must adhere to Microsoft’s recommended System Requirements.

4.The software included with this product is not Mac-compatible.



It looks like D-Link wants to offer a competitor to Cisco’s new Linksys E1500 budget router.
According to D-Link, this new single-band router features multiple intelligent antennas, and supports Intelligent Quality of Service, which aids in optimizing Internet traffic for services such as VoIP or gaming.

Most significant, however, is the fact that D-Link’s new router supports Gigabit Ethernet, which the E1500 doesn’t. This means wired clients can enjoy network speeds of up to 1000Mbps, and those with a home server can enjoy media streaming to multiple devices without worrying about clogging their networks.

Like most wireless routers, the D-Link DIR-651 comes with four LAN ports and one WAN port. For security, the router also supports all variations of WPA and WPA2 standards. In addition, it supports Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), so you can add WPS-enabled clients to the network with the push of a button.

The DIR-651 Wireless N 300 Gigabit Router is slated to be available next month for an estimated price of $90, about the same as that of the Linksys E1500.

The D-Link® Wireless N 8-Port Router (DIR-632) provides a better wireless signal for your network than previous-generation Wireless G* technology. Upgrading your home network to Wireless N provides an excellent solution for sharing an Internet connection and files such as video, music, photos, and documents. D-Link Wireless N products use Intelligent Antenna technology to transmit multiple streams of data which enables you to receive wireless signals in the farthest corners of your home.

Not only does the D-Link Wireless N technology extend your wireless range, it also works with previous-generation wireless devices. The DIR-632 also includes basic QoS (Quality of Service) Prioritization Technology that analyzes and separates multiple data streams based on sensitivity to delay, enabling multiple applications such as VoIP, Video, and Gaming to stream smoothly across your network.



The key feature of the router is the large number of 100Mbps Ethernet ports. The router has eight of these which would typically be handy for a SoHo or a small internet café. For most home users, these many ports will be of little use. WiFi 802.11n capacbility should give it an edge over other routers as well. All of the usual features you find in a good router are available – QoS, web site and access filtering. There is also some emphasis on IPv6 in the advanced menus.

The USB port function at the rear of the router can be used to share data and it can also be used to connect to the internet using a 3G modem. There is also support for something called WCN which is something Microsoft deviced to make configuring wireless network simpler. This feature also needs a USB flash drive to function.

Design and Build Quality

One of the first things you notice about the DIR-632 is that it’s noticeably larger than most other WiFi routers. The reason for that are the 8 wired 100Mbps ports at the rear of the router. In terms of build quality, it’s a pretty lightweight router and a little flimsy at the bottom. The front face of the router has the activity indicators for each one of the wired ports clearly marked. There’s also an indicator for the USB port. Provision for wall mounts is present on the back of the router and there is space for two antennas.



The performance of a WiFi 802.11n router should be considerably better than standard 802.11g routers. We setup the router in the Tech2 Labs close to where the router was and tried copying two data sets of 2 GB each. There were two test zones that we used. The first test was performed in the same room as the router. The second test was done in the room adjoining the labs. During our test run, we saw speeds of sequential data in the first zone peaking at 5.52MB/s, which is roughly the same theoretical speed of WiFi 802.11g (54Mbps). The assorted data set took a little longer with an average speed of 4.64MB/s. In the second zone, sequential data sets averaged 4.13MB/s and the assorted data folder 3.63MB/s.

User Reviews

“So far, so good.” by griffin2811

Pros: Great range, signal strength and stability. 8 ports and energy saving features.Interface for setup is clear, has many useful features my D-Link di524 didn’t. So far, no signal drops. Reserve I.P’s and has a central shareport,two things I wanted.

Cons: 60 seconds for this router to save changes every time you make one, but should only be one time during the setup.

Summary: I like it. I wasn’t able to read many reviews before I bought, but am pretty happy with this router.
