DWR-953

Wireless AC1200 4G LTE Router with Gigabit Ethernet Ports
Where to buy

Description

Built-in LTE Modem
The router is equipped with a built-in LTE modem which provides 3G/4G mobile connection with fast downlink speeds of up to 150Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 50Mbps1
 
Wireless Interface
Using the DWR-953 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 1167Mbps2).
 
Secure Wireless Connection
The router supports multiple functions for the wireless interface: several security standards (WEP, WPA/WPA2/WPA3), 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
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 DWR-953 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 SSH 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 IKEv2 protocol allows to provide simplified message exchange and use asymmetric authentication engine upon configuration of an IPsec tunnel.
The router also supports the SkyDNS web content filtering service, which provides 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 the rules and settings of the firewall and used to reboot the router at the specified time or every specified time period, to set rules for limitation of wireless client maximum bandwidth, and to enable/disable the wireless network and the Wi-Fi filter.
 
Easy configuration and update
You can configure the settings of the wireless router DWR-953 via the user-friendly web-based interface (the interface is available in several languages).
The configuration wizard allows you to quickly switch DWR-953 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.
You can simply update the firmware: the router itself finds approved firmware on D-Link update server and notifies when ready to install it.
