DIR-853

AC1300 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router with 3G/LTE Support and USB Port 3.0
Where to buy

Description

 
USB Port
The router is equipped with a USB port for connecting a USB modem, which can be used to establish connection to the Internet. In addition, to the USB port of the router you can connect a USB storage device, which will be used as a network drive, or a printer.
In order to use the multifunction USB port effectively, the router supports simultaneous2 operation of several USB devices. For example, you can access multimedia content of the connected HDD storage and at the same time share a USB printer3.
 
LAN/WAN2 Conversion, WAN Failover
You can use any Ethernet port of the router as LAN or WAN port. The new-generation firmware supports assigning several WAN ports, for example, in order to configure the primary and backup WAN connection of different ISPs. In addition, you can configure the WAN failover using a 3G/4G modem.
 
Wireless Interface
Using the DIR-853 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 1300Mbps )1.
 
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
The Super MESH2 function is D-Link implementation of Mesh networks designed to quickly connect multiple devices into one transport network, for example, when it's required to provide high-quality Wi-Fi coverage without dead zones in living units of complicated planning or it's needed to create a large temporary Wi-Fi network for an outdoor event.
Multi-user MIMO technology allows to distribute the router's resources to let multiple wireless clients use the Wi-Fi network efficiently, keeping high rates for HD media streaming, lag-free gaming, and fast transfer of large files.
Transmit Beamforming technology allows to flexibly change the antennas' radiation pattern and to redistribute the signal directly to wireless devices connected to the router.
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.
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.
 
Security
The wireless router DIR-853 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.
The SSH2 protocol support provides more secure remote configuration and management of the router due to encryption of all transmitted traffic, including passwords.
In addition, the router supports IPsec and allows to create secure VPN tunnels. Support of the IKEv22 protocol allows to provide simplified message exchange and use asymmetric authentication engine upon configuration of an IPsec tunnel.
Built-in Yandex.DNS service protects against malicious and fraudulent web sites and helps to block access to adult content on children's devices.
The router also supports the SafeDNS/SkyDNS web content filtering services, which provide more settings and opportunities for safer Internet experience for home users of all ages and for professional activities of corporate users.
Now the schedules are also implemented; they can be applied to MAC filter rules and used to reboot the router at the specified time or every specified time period2.
 
Easy configuration and update
You can configure the settings of the wireless router DIR-853 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 quickly switch DIR-853 to one of the following modes: router (for connection to a wired or wireless ISP), access point, repeater, or client, and then configure all needed setting for operation in the selected mode in several simple steps.
Also DIR-853 supports configuration and management via mobile application for Android and iPhone smartphones.
You can simply update the firmware: the router itself finds approved firmware on D-Link update server and notifies when ready to install it.

1For some models of USB modems.
2Maximum wireless signal rate is derived from IEEE standard 802.11ac and 802.11n specifications. In order to get the rate of 400Mbps in the 2.4GHz band, a Wi-Fi client should support MIMO 2x2 and QAM256 modulation scheme. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range.
3The manufacturer does not guarantee proper operation of the router with every modification of the firmware of USB modems.
