You can even configure a guest zone to give visitors Internet access without giving them access to the rest of your network.

Alternatively, you can download the free QRS (Quick Router Setup) App for iOS or Android to set up directly on your smartphone or tablet without the need of a computer.

1 Maximum wireless signal rate derived from draft IEEE 802.11ac and IEEE 802.11n specifications. Actual data throughput will vary. Network conditions and environmental factors, including volume of network traffic, building materials and construction, and network overhead, lower actual data throughput rate. Environmental factors will adversely affect wireless signal range. Wireless range and speed rates are D-Link relative performance measurements based on the wireless range and speed rates of a standard Wireless G product from D-Link. Maximum throughput based on D-Link 802.11n devices.
