CNET Editor Dong Ngo says the DIR-868L is D-Link’s “best router to date” and gives it 4 out of 5 stars!
Dong ran the DIR-868L through a gamut of tests and we are proud to say that the 11AC router emerged victorious. When used with legacy N devices, the wireless cloud router not only improved the wireless performance on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands (up to 63Mbps and 178Mbps respectively) but its scores placed it among other top performers. Testing the router’s 11AC wireless range, Dong discovered that the DIR-868L registered 221Mbps at a distance of 100 feet, topping the charts, which means complete and reliable home coverage for you, the customer. The Wireless AC1750 Cloud Router also offers “excellent network storage data speed” when coupled with an external hard drive using the SharePort enabled USB port, providing quick and easy access to your files through any of your connected devices.
