D-Link Releases New Wi-Fi Range Extender

D-Link is unveiling its new AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1860) which is equipped with four external antennas and high-power amps maximising range and eliminating wireless dead zones in hard-to-reach areas.

The Wi-Fi range extender can be used with any Wi-Fi router.

The DAP-1860 Wi-Fi Range Extender has dual-band connectivity with speeds of up to 2600Mbps, Advanced AC SmartBeam for enhancing signal strength, and a Smart Signal Indicator to guide users to find the best placement for optimal coverage.

The AC2600 Extender incorporates the latest multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology that enables simultaneous transmission to groups of clients, making more efficient use of available Wi-Fi network capacity and speeding up transmissions.

Graeme Reardon, managing director at D-Link ANZ says, “More connected devices mean a greater need for a strong reliable connection covering the entire home. The new DAP-1860 AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender helps guarantee this allowing users to place devices anywhere in their home without having to worry about a slow or intermittent Wi-Fi connection.”

The AC2600 Extender has a one-button installation – users need only press the WPS button on the Router and then on the Extender to sync and instantly increase the coverage of a wireless home network. Users whose Routers do not have a WPS button can use a web browser or D-Link’s free mobile app for simple setup.
