Networking equipment manufacturer D-Link’s answer to a seamless networking connection for small office/home office (SOHO) environments is the DIR-842, a dual-band AC1200 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi gigabit router.
Its upgraded 802.11ac wave II specification and Wi-Fi speeds of up to 1200 Mbps can not only handle high-speed file transfers but it also boasts of wider range, more channels, less RF interference, and superior bandwidth performance.
With the data signal speed on both 2.4 GHz (300 Mbps) and 5Ghz (867 Mbps) for wireless AC1200, the 2.4Ghz can be used for typical daily activities; while using the 5 GHz can accommodate heavier Internet usage such as online gaming, HD streaming, reliable file transfers, and more.
The model’s built-in Quality of Service (QoS) engine offers real-time functionalities that allow users to prioritize important traffic to keep those applications running the way they should. Also, the DIR-842 features support for multiple input, multiple output (MU-MIMO) — which can serve multiple wireless clients all at the same time) and Gigabit Ethernet ports.
Providing additional security to home networks, the DIR-842 comes with firewall options and lets users implement WPA/WPA2 wireless security or use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS). Users can download the free D-Link QRS Mobile app to set up the home network right from the smartphone.
Beginning August this year, the DIR-842 AC1200 Wi-Fi gigabit router will become available for P3,880.
