It isn’t every day that I get to review a router, and I must admit that I am a little late on this one. I received this last week, but I only reviewed it last weekend. Yes, I know I am a little late on this review. Dude, I’ve got other things going on, man.
The D-Link AC1750 is that big can that you see there. It is the Next Generation 11AC Wi-Fi, which means that is good for up to 450 + 1300 Mbps. It allows for faster Wi-Fi speeds and less interference.
I can testify to this being true. My old router is in my living room, and I used to only get three bars on my laptop in my home office, maybe four if I am lucky. With the D-Link AC1750, I get five bars. This is really nice, because I used to get these stupid Internet blackouts where I had to move my laptop around the room. Yeah, it was stupid, but the AC1750 solved that.
Another feature that I like is that it has SharePort Mobile, which allows you to stream and share files over your home network from virtually any connected USB drive to your mobile devices. There is also an app for that, and it supports Android and iOS.
I believe that this black can is durable too. I accidentally knocked it over twice after installation, and it works as well as I described. I can’t recommend it more highly. Make sure that when you are installing it, you use Internet Explorer and not Firefox. This is the reason for my tardy review. So, if you want on this, head to the D-Link site and lay down $149.99.
