Dual-Band with a Kick
How about a dual-band wireless router with 3x3 data streams for faster Wi-Fi speeds?
Independent data streams are delivered to each device on the network for speeds of up to
1900Mbps (600 Mbps in 2.4GHz + 1300 Mbps in 5GHz).
The best performance for streaming your favorite movie or playing games with your friends.
Want Great Coverage?
Four high-performance external antennas will bring out stronger Wi-Fi coverage throughout your home. More devices that will connect faster to your network and no more dead zones.
Multi-User MIMO (MU-MIMO)
With MU-MIMO technology multiple devices are able to get high-bandwidth Wi-Fi signal at the same time, distributing data more efficiently, giving you the fastest Wi-Fi speeds in your home. You can stream HD media faster, transfer large files really fast and play buffer free gaming.
More Processing Power
A Dual-core processor boosts multitasking computing power and improves
throughput speeds for all of your applications.
Optimal Bandwidth Connection
Not all Wi-Fi bands are the same, but you don’t need to worry about that. The DIR-878 chooses from two Wi-Fi bands and automatically connects each device on your network to the best, clearest band available for the best connection every time.
Improves coverage by directing bandwidth to your devices as you move around your home. You can seamlessly stream HD video, surf the web, skype your friends and play online games from wherever you are so you’ll always get the best experience.
