Wireless AC1900 Dual Band Gigabit Router
Using the DIR-879 device, you are able to quickly create a high-speed wireless network at home or in your office, which lets computers and mobile devices access the Internet virtually anywhere (within the operational range of your wireless network). Simultaneous activity of 2.4GHz band and 5GHz band allows performing a wide range of tasks. The router can operate as a base station for connecting wireless devices of the standards 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n, and 802.11ac (at the wireless connection rate up to 1900Mbps1 ).
Secure Wireless Connection
The router supports multiple functions for the wireless interface: several security standards (WEP, WPA/WPA2), MAC address filtering, WPS, WMM.
In addition, the device is equipped with a button for switching the Wi-Fi network off/on. If needed, for example, when you leave home, you can easily switch the router’s WLAN by pressing the button, and devices connected to the LAN ports of the router will stay online.
Advanced Capabilities of Wireless Network
Support of guest Wi-Fi network allows you to create a separate wireless network with individual security settings and maximum rate limitation. Devices connected to the guest network will be able to access the Internet, but will be isolated from the devices and resources of the router's LAN.
Smart adjustment of Wi-Fi clients is useful for networks based on several D-Link access points or routers – when the smart adjustment function is configured on each of them, a client always connects to the access point (router) with the highest signal level.
Also the device is equipped with a two-position mode selector. You can leave DIR-879 in the router mode in order to connect devices to the Internet or switch it to the access point mode in order to create a new wireless network or extend the range of an existing wireless network.
The wireless router DIR-879 includes a built-in firewall. The advanced security functions minimize threats of hacker attacks, prevent unwanted intrusions to your network, and block access to unwanted websites for users of your LAN.
Built-in Yandex.DNS service protects against malicious and fraudulent web sites and helps to block access to adult content on children's devices.
Easy configuration and update
You can configure the settings of the wireless router DIR-879 via the user-friendly web-based interface (the interface is available in two languages – in Russian and in English).
The configuration wizard allows you to connect DIR-879 to a wired or wireless ISP (when switched to the router mode) in several simple steps or quickly set needed parameters for operation as an access point, repeater, or client (when switched to the access point mode).
