D-Link’s New Wireless AC MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Routers

D-Link DIR-882 AC2600 EXO MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router

Today, D-Link ANZ launched 2 of their newest AC based wireless routers, the DIR-882 AC2600 ‘EXO’ MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router and DIR-878 AC1900 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router.

“These two new Routers further deliver on D-Link’s promise of producing Routers packed with premium features, faster speeds and support for more devices providing the perfect combination of performance and ease of use. With MU-MIMO as well as ‘Whole Home Wi-Fi’ support on both products, D-Link are bringing the latest Wi-Fi technology to the market at an affordable price point.” – Graeme Reardon, D-Link ANZ MD.

Featuring dual-band speeds of up to 2.533Gbps, the DIR-882 rocks a high-performance dual-core processor and AC SmartBeam technology. In addition, the AC2600 EXO router also features USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports

“The DIR-882 AC2600 EXO Router is the latest high-performance Router in our line-up, sitting between our flagship AC5300 DIR-895 Router, and the new DIR-878, and is specifically designed for 4K streamers and gamers. It also enables users to reliably maintain the strongest Wi-Fi signal on multiple devices at one time, whether streaming, gaming, surfing the web, or working from home. Additionally, it creates a ‘PowerZone’ of high-performance Wi-Fi right where you need it, but can be seamlessly expanded to gain extra coverage should your home need it by adding Whole Home Wi-Fi enabled Range Extenders, giving you a scalable mesh network solution.” – Reardon added.

The other router D-Link released was the DIR-878 AC1900 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Gigabit Router. It’s shaping up to be a powerful wireless solution tailored for small businesses. Featuring a combination of 802.11ac WiFi, dual-band technology, and gigabit ethernet ports, the router can provide a seamless networking experience with minimal management. The DIR-878 also includes D-Link’s advanced security features that help keep intruders at bay.
Both routers are available now from D-Link Australia, New Zealand or an authorised retailer. The RRP pricing is:

  • AC2600 EXO MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router (DIR-882) – AUD$349.95 / NZ$399.99; and
