D‑Link Introduces AC1900, AC2600 and AC3000 Smart Mesh Wi‑Fi Routers

D-Link announces the availability of its all-new Exo Smart Mesh Wi-Fi Router series; a powerful addition to D-Link's portfolio of seamless connection solutions for the home. The series comprises of AC1900 Smart Mesh Wi-Fi Router (DIR-1960), AC2600 Smart Mesh Wi-Fi Router (DIR-2660) and AC3000 Smart Mesh Wi-Fi Router (DIR-3060).

D-Link's next-generation routers offer high-performance Wi-Fi connectivity combined with McAfee protection, providing a faster and more secure home network. The routers all feature a five-year McAfee Secure Home Platform subscription; protecting every device on a connected home network by blocking suspicious connections and access to malicious content. Comprehensive parental controls prevent access to inappropriate content and can be used to set up Wi-Fi schedules. The routers also come with a two-year subscription to McAfee LiveSafe, which allows antivirus software to be installed on an unlimited number of computers, tablets and smartphones.
McAfee Secure Home Platform includes:
  • Malicious site blocking
  • Connection anomaly and botnet detection
  • Advanced network controls to hide your devices from hackers
  • Automatically disconnect selected devices when you are away from home
  • Comprehensive parental control with customisable content filtering, profiles and Wi-Fi scheduling.
The new routers feature best in class 802.11ac Wave 2 allowing for dual-band and tri-band combined wireless speeds of up to 1,900 Mbps, 2,533 Mbps and 3,000 Mbps. For even wider coverage, simply add compatible D-Link Wi-Fi Mesh extenders to create a seamless, self-optimizing, mesh wireless network that allows you to move around without disconnection.

Kevin Wen, President at D-Link Europe said "People want internet access that is as safe and secure, as it is fast and reliable. With McAfee protection, our new Exo routers provide enhanced cyber security for the home network as well as on-the-go protection when users are away from the home."

Other key features include:
  • Voice control support with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa enabled devices
  • The SPEEDTEST powered routers allow you to find out the true speed of your internet, straight from the router.
  • Automatically downloads and installs firmware updates to ensure the best protection and latest features
  • Powerful 880 MHz dual-core processor to handle intensive network activity, allowing users to enjoy buffer-free video streaming, lag-free gaming and lightning-fast internet surfing

"The SPEEDTEST powered routers"

And here I thought routers were powered by an SoC...

Also, based on the spec, these use an old MediaTek MT7621 SoC, which was launched in 2013. Powerful indeed...

Hey, why care if it sells?

Hardcore/tech savvy guys knows that decent networking gear comes from little-known (to the general public at least) manufacturers.

This flashy trash is aimed at 'gamers', parents who think they are buying their kid a decent present, etc.

I guess you are still on Windows 7 then. And also you are checking update MS files before? Oh, wait, 7 is EOL, so no updates.
Ridiculous...
