FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Sept. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- D-Link today announced the immediate availability of the AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1860). The company's newest extender is equipped with four high-performance external antennas and high power amplifiers designed to optimize coverage and maximize range, eliminating wireless dead zones in hard-to-reach areas like basements, upstairs bedrooms and outdoor areas.
The AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender comes packed with advanced features including dual-band connectivity with speeds of up to 2600Mbps, Advanced AC SmartBeam to enhance signal strength and throughput, and a Smart Signal Indicator to guide users to find the best placement for optimal coverage. For added performance, the AC2600 Extender incorporates the latest multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology that enables simultaneous transmission to groups of clients, making more efficient use of available Wi-Fi network capacity and speeding up transmissions.
"As customers continue to increase the amount of connected devices in a household, the need for a strong reliable connection covering the entire home becomes more and more apparent," said Oscar Reyes, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. "Our new AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender allows users to place devices anywhere in their home without having to worry about a slow or spotty Wi-Fi connection."
Like all of D-Link's range extenders, the AC2600 Extender features a simple one-button installation – users need only press the WPS button on the router and then on the extender to sync and instantly increase the coverage of a wireless home network. Users whose routers do not have a WPS button can use a web browser or D-Link's free QRS Mobile app for simple setup.
