The DIR-1750 is, as its name suggests, an AC1750 device, with theoretical speeds up to 450Mbps on 2.4GHz and 1300Mbps on 5GHz.
If additional coverage is required, the WLAN can be extended with EasyLink nodes such as the D-Link Covr-1100.
The DIR-2150 is an AC2100 model, with nominal speeds up to 300 Mbps on 2.4GHz and 1733Mbps on 5GHz.
It supports 802.11k/v smart roaming when used in conjunction with additional access points (such as D-Link's DAP-1820, according to the company). These standards allow wireless clients to move more smoothly between access points on the same network.
Features common to the two new routers include MU-MIMO for communicating with more Wi-Fi devices simultaneously, WPA3 encryption for greater wireless security, Gigabit Ethernet ports (one WAN, four LAN), IPv6 support, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa integration, profile-based parental controls, and QuickVPN support for connecting to remote networks.
Both routers can be optionally set up and managed via the D-Link Wi-FI app for iOS and Android.
The DIR-2150 additionally incorporates intelligent QoS to prioritise important traffic (the DIR-1750 provides device-based prioritisation), and Smart Connect to automatically connect devices to the optimal wireless band.
“Today's households want a Wi-Fi router that combines superior performance and cutting-edge features without breaking the bank," said D-Link ANZ managing director Graeme Reardon.
"These two new D-Link Wi-Fi mesh gigabit routers allow users to enjoy fast, reliable coverage to match their increasing amount of high-bandwidth devices. Easy setup and management via the D-Link Wi-Fi app and comprehensive parental controls all reinforce our commitment to providing consumers with safe, secure and best-in-class networking."
