D-Link today announced it’s now shipping the first router in a series of new high-performance 11AC home networking solutions.

D-Link DIR-890L/R AC3200 ULTRA Wi-Fi Router Launched

Comprised of three routers including the AC5300 ULTRA Wi-Fi Router (DIR-895L/R), AC3200 ULTRA Wi-Fi Router (DIR-890L/R) and AC3100 ULTRA Wi-Fi Router (DIR-885L/R), the ULTRA Performance Series delivers chart-topping wireless speeds up to 5.3 Gbps1, far-reaching coverage, a revamped and intuitive user interface, and dynamic Smart Connect to automatically balance clients, giving users more control over their network than ever before. The new series also includes the ULTRA AC1900 Wi-Fi USB Adapter (DWA-192)designed to bring 802.11ac performance to existing laptops and desktop PCs.

The ULTRA Performance Series from D-Link brings an aggressive and stylish design to home networking with a premium red finish designed to match the ultra-performance delivered by these new routers. In addition, the series’ sleek form factor features a broad base with angular points and high-powered antennas to offer extreme performance in a modern form-factor for today’s homes.

“We’ve set the bar for how a Wi-Fi Router should look and perform,” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Our new ULTRA Performance Series has everything a demanding user is looking for – three bands of Wi-Fi, fast speeds, beamforming, and QoS – all housed in an attractive form-factor that is sure to make a statement.”

The new series of routers is equipped with a wide array of advanced features including Wireless 11AC Beamforming to enhance signal strength and throughput, Smart Connect to automatically assign clients to the wireless band providing the best bandwidth and an advanced QoS engine with a drag-and-drop UI to provide an easy way to prioritize applications and devices. In addition, the routers feature gigabit WAN/LAN Ethernet ports for high speed wired connectivity and are enabled with WPA™ or WPA2™ security and Wi-Fi Protected setup to ensure network integrity and ease-of-setup.

Each router is fitted with high power antennas (four for the DIR-885L/R, six for the DIR-890L/R and eight for the DIR-895L/R), designed to maximize range and optimize coverage.  For added performance, the DIR-885L/R and DIR-895L/R routers incorporate 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.

The ULTRA Performance Series Wi-Fi routers also feature D-Link’s latest user interface, making it easier than ever to control a network right from a smartphone or tablet device with touch-friendly layout. Enabling parental controls, blocking unwanted devices, monitoring internet activity and creating Wi-Fi guest networks has never been simpler. The routers also support simple setup using a mobile phone or tablet with the free Quick Router Setup (QRS) app.
