Home Home Tech D-Link launches AC2600 Wi-Fi range extender

Networking equipment company D-Link has launched an AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender that is equipped with the company's Whole Home Wi-Fi technology.

The device has four high-performance external antennas and high-power amplifiers designed to optimise coverage and maximise range, and is claimed to eliminate wireless dead zones in hard-to-reach areas like bedrooms upstairs and outdoor areas.

A statement from D-Link said the DAP-1860 would work with any router. But when paired with a D-Link PowerZone-enabled router or modem router, it enabled a mesh solution with a single network name across the entire home.

The device has dual-band connectivity with speeds of up to 2600Mbps, advanced AC SmartBeam to enhance signal strength, and a Smart Signal Indicator to help users find the optimal spot for its location.

It also has the latest multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology to enable simultaneous transmission to groups, use available Wi-Fi network capacity efficiently and speed up transmissions.

"The new DAP-1860 AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender helps guarantee this allowing users to place devices anywhere in their home without having to worry about a slow or intermittent Wi-Fi connection.”
