The D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Gigabit Router (DIR-850L) uses dual band wireless AC technology to provide lightning-fast data speeds for all of the wireless devices in your home. The two bands can transmit data up to 300Mbps and 867Mbps respectively and give your wireless network extended range and better reliability. It's ideal for streaming HD video, online gaming, and more.

More Information

  • Compatible with 802.11 a/b/g/n devices
  • For any of your devices that don't have Wireless AC built in, you can pick up D-Link AC USB adapters (sold separately) and let them take advantage of the full potential of your AC network

  • You can use your smartphone or tablet to set up the router, quickly and easily

Great product! at a reasonable price

All in all i am quite impressed with the product and it's AC band. Connected it to my mac on the AC band and transferring data over the network is amazingly fast. Originally I was planning on getting an airport extreme but all in all the specs of this router are on par with the extreme plus [...] cheaper too. This was a win win

Reliable, has great range

I hooked up the D-Link DIR 850L to my Shaw Cisco router to improve the wi-fi in my house. I eventually had to get Shaw to bridge the modem as it was causing issues with my VPN. I've had no issues, the router has never dropped the signal and the range is impressive. I have the router located at the front of the house, main floor.....using my wi-fi manager, I discovered I now get full bars in my backyard.

great router

Had a belkin n600. upgraded because of dropped connections and not getting a signal from the other end of our house. this dlink ac1200 can handle 10 devices at once with great signal range. i wanted a dual band router however after i purchased it none of my devices are 5ghz compatable anyways. Router works great. was easy to set up.

Good speed/connectivity with multiple devices. I like the nice clean look of it. Found installation a bit frusterating. I had to do a firmware update before I was able to save the new passwords.

first time use: speed from 25-72 Mbps

set up easy, except wireless auto , should use manual set up new name and password. it took me about 2 hours to complete. reviewed on day 1.
