Last week D-Link, Canada’s leader in home networking, introduced the Wireless AC Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520), the first-ever Dual Band AC Range Extender available in Canada.
The newest addition to its highly popular Wireless Range Extender family, the Wireless AC Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520) offers next generation Wireless Dual Band AC technology and delivers interference-free wireless signals to hard-to-reach areas in your home or backyard.
“Whether you’re using a smartphone in your basement or a tablet in your backyard, encountering a Wi-Fi dead zone can be extremely frustrating. As more Canadians bring mobile and connected devices into their home, the amount of time spent online, as well as the need for stronger wireless signals will continue to surge,” said Lou Reda, President of D-Link Canada, Inc. “D-Link’s latest range extender offers Wireless AC speeds and is backwards compatible, allowing users to keep their current Wi-Fi router. It provides a quick and easy way to extend your current wireless N or wireless AC networks, enabling you to use a range of mobile devices and even add dual band connectivity to an existing home network.”
The DAP-1520 works with all wireless brands1 and allows users to add 5GHz of connectivity to a single band network with the push of a button, meaning whether you have a dual band router or not you can take advantage of the better throughput and reduced interference you get with a dual band network.
The DAP-1520 delivers AC750 (300 + 433Mbps) dual band wireless speeds and features one- touch configuration. Simply push the Wi-Fi Protected SetupTM (WPS) button on the range extender and then on the router or Wi-Fi modem you want to extend, and the range extender will automatically configure itself.
