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.
D-Link ANZ managing director Graeme Reardon said: “More connected devices mean a greater need for a strong reliable connection covering the entire home.
"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.”
