At CES 2014, enterprise IT vendor D-Link announced the launch of its latest Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Range Extender (DAP-1650) and Wireless AC750 Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520).
With the new launches, D-Link is trying to eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones and broaden the range of its wireless network.
D-Link claims that both extenders are backwards compatible, enabling users to extend the reach of their existing 11N as well as 11AC Wi-Fi networks. The new extenders also allow users to add 5GHz connectivity to a single band network with the push of a button.
In addition, both extenders offer the latest 11AC Wi-Fi technology and deliver wireless signals to those hard-to-reach areas for seamless video streaming, online gaming and other everyday Internet activities. For added flexibility,
The DAP-1650 and DAP-1520 deliver AC1200 (N300 + AC867Mbps) and AC750 (N300 + AC433Mbps) wireless speeds, respectively. The DAP-1650 is equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports for reliable wired connectivity ideal for media centers, game rooms and home offices.
