For those that like to live on the cutting edge of Wi-Fi connectivity, D-Link has introduced the Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Cloud Router (DIR-850L) with cloud sharing and 802.11ac connectivity. A member of D-Link’s Cloud Series of routers, the DIR-850L offers the added benefit of remote network management and remote file access via mydlink Cloud Services.
For the speed freaks out there, the 802.11ac Wi-Fi spec enables faster speeds that 802.11n, with a theoretical maximum of up to 1 gigabit per second. Operating in the 5GHz band, the AC1200 delivers concurrent wireless dual-band speeds of up to 300 and 867Mbps, eliminating Wi-Fi interference for faster and more reliable Internet. This should translate into better wireless speeds for seamless HD video streaming, online gaming, and file sharing.
For those looking for the cloud connectivity options, but without 802.11ac devices, the DIR-850L is backwards-compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n. The DIR-850L also offers four gigabit Ethernet ports for connecting up your wired devices, such as gaming consoles and desktop computers.
