Gone are the days where connecting to the internet requires a noisy gadget that goes through the motions of the now-dying “dial-up noise.” Thankfully we have access to much better technology today such as ADSL, VDSL, HFC and Fibre that can connect to the internet instantly. Unfortunately, this also means that there are so many options out there that make choosing the right device difficult.

Recently, D-Link announced the availability of their latest consumer router – the D-Link Viper 2600. Here’s why we think the D-Link VIPER 2600 router is a great choice when you need to replace your router.

A Trusted Brand

D-Link is a trusted brand when it comes to connectivity, and they’ve been providing high-quality connectivity solutions to clients all over the world since 1986. Excellent customer support and great products have helped to make them one of the top companies around.

Affordable Yet Powerful

The D-Link Viper 2600 Router doesn’t have to break the bank: It’s affordable enough to suit your pocket but powerful enough to connect your home or small business network. Powered by an internal dual-core processor, the Viper 2600 delivered ultra-fast performance and high-speed connectivity – even with several devices connected at once for Netflix streaming, gaming and more.

Easy to Set Up

The D-Link Viper 2600 guarantees you an easy setup with no need to fumble with settings, wires or buttons – it’s designed with an easy-to-use one-button setup that’ll automatically pair all of your devices with the router.

Similarly, you don’t need technical knowledge about Wi-Fi connections to set up wireless on your VIPER 2600. An easy installation wizard will walk you through the steps to getting your connection up and running.

Dual-Band Connection

The D-Link Viper 2600 offers a superior dual-band 5GHz connection through four antennae on the unit for ultra-fast performance and an internet connection perfect for surfing, streaming or gaming. The four antennae also helped to provide great coverage in our test area.

Available Guest Connection

Receiving guests who need access to your Wi-Fi connection? This isn’t a problem for the D-Link Viper 2600, and you can set up a separate guest Wi-Fi connection with its own settings and password so that your guests don’t need to access the internet through your main connection. You can also add special parental control settings to your Wi-Fi connection or limit usage if you have younger children.

Perfect Prioritisation

The D-Link Viper 2600 offers perfect and automatic prioritization of all devices connected to the main router so that you never have a slow or dropped connection no matter how many devices are connected or how much traffic is going through.

Final Thoughts

The D-Link Viper 2600 gives you the capability to stream high-quality media, play games online or just surf the web. Being affordable, easy to install and offers great performance, the Viper 2600 is one wireless router that you will want to consider.
