D-Link Systems has released its first wireless router called D-Link DIR-865L Wireless AC 1750 Dual Band Cloud Router. This router supports the new 802.11ac (5G Wi-Fi) technology, Wireless-N and legacy clients. Its cloud feature is currently limited that makes the router advantageous for remote users to manage their home network while on the go. This router does not have the useful HD fuel QoS feature that we found in other D-Link routers such as the DIR-857.
The D-Link DIR-865L body is square shape which sits vertically, even its looks is different from previous D-Link routers. It has four LAN ports and one WAN port. All ports support Gigabit that is an advantage. These ports are able to manage heavy traffic when movies are streaming between devices. The router has a USB 2.0 port to connect an external storage device, a recessed reset button and an on/off button. At the front side of the router, it has two round LED light. The light indicates that the power and internet connection status as well as a Wi-Fi protected setup button. You can easily set up this router which is similar to other routers of D-Link.
