D-Link is bringing a new router to the market that is as stylish as it is functional with the new DIR-818LW. While traditional routers have come in one color, this one comes in 4: black, white, teal, and red. The design is good looking too, ditching the traditional router design for a cylinder shape with integrated antennas. The router uses Dual Band AC750 wireless technology and if that isn’t enough, comes with 4 gigabit Ethernet ports as well. It also has a USB port for connecting a drive via D-Link’s Shareport service.
The DIR-818W is available for $79.99 on Amazon.
D-Link Brings Color to Wi-Fi
New Line of Red, Teal, Black, and White Routers Deliver AC750 Speeds in a Stylish Form Factor
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – May 14, 2014 – D-Link today announced that it is now shipping a new line of AC750 Wi-Fi Routers (DIR-818LW) available in red, teal, black, and white. Featuring a sleek, cylinder shape, the routers deliver next generation 802.11ac wireless speeds and gigabit wired speeds. The new routers are perfect for any house looking for a reliable and strong home network ideal for HD video streaming, online gaming and multiple user activities with some desk appeal.
”Wi-Fi routers have never had the reputation of being the most aesthetically pleasing products in the home, and we set out to change that with our color routers,” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “With the launch of our new line of AC750 Wi-Fi Routers, customers not only get a powerful home network capable of supporting the most demanding applications, they also have a stylish device they can proudly display on the desk rather than buried underneath it.”
Designed to eliminate Wi-Fi interference for faster and more reliable Internet, the AC750 Wi-Fi Routers feature dual-band technology enabling users to perform simple Internet activities on the 2.4GHz band, and more demanding activities on the cleaner, interference-free 5GHz band. The routers are also backward compatible with 802.11a/b/g/n devices for seamless connectivity. Additionally, for fast wired connectivity, the AC750 Wi-Fi Routers are equipped with four Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Offering easy remote network management, the AC750 Wi-Fi Routers allow users to see what websites are being visited, block unwanted connections and set up automatic email alerts when unauthorized connections are made on any iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ device with the free mydlink™ Lite app. In addition, the routers feature a USB port that works with the free mydlink SharePort™ app, enabling users to stream and share photos, music and movie files directly to their mobile devices. The AC routers also support easy setup using a mobile phone or tablet with the free Quick Router Setup (QRS) app.
