“In addition to 11AC Wi-Fi speeds, what sets the Wireless Range Extender apart from others on the market is its ability to also function as an access point or a media bridge, depending on user needs,” said Ken Loyd, director of consumer product marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “As an access point, the DAP-1650 connects directly to an existing router to improve its wireless speed and range. In media bridge mode, the DAP-1650 can connect up to four wired devices to a wireless network, making it the perfect solution for those looking to connect an entertainment center or home office. We know no one’s home setup is the same, so we’re proud to offer a product that is flexible enough to accommodate a range of connectivity needs.”
