D-Link showed a preview of its new fashionable routers, the D-Link Color series. These 802.11ac routers will come in three colors, Candy Red, Champagne Gold and Vintage Blue, and have features similar to the standard routers that D-Link ships now.
D-Link unveiled the DIR-510L, a portable router that also has a 4000 mAh battery for exceptional router life as well as portable device charging. The router creates an 802.11ac Wi-Fi access point at 750 Mbps combined over the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands perfect for sharing cellular data connections with friends, family, coworkers, and that guy that never remembers to bring his own connection to conventions.
The mydlink Network Video Recorder (DNR-312L) is a single bay NAS device that sports HDMI out and up to 4 TB of storage for up to nine D-Link cameras over its gigabit Ethernet connection.
According to D-Link, its upcoming gaming-focused network router, the DGL-5500, will start off with its shipping on August 1. Customers located in the States can pre-order the device now for $199.99 USD. This router uses Qualcomm’s StreamBoost technology to prioritize specific apps and games.
D-Link has released a brand new dual-band wireless Gigabit router. The DIR-850L is an AC 1200 router so it operates at both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Not only do you have wireless support, but you also have 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and a single USB port. You can connect a USB hard drive to the DIR-850L for easy file access on any device that is connected to the router.
