Imagine if you had blazing fast Wi-Fi, nearly instantaneous ping times, and could connect multiple devices at once. The D-Link Wireless AC3000 and D-Link AC2000+ Wi-Fi routers come packed with advanced features to ensure that your home networking setup is up to this task. Wireless Internet and home networking have become an integral part of life, so much so that you can find Wi-Fi enabled coffee tables, locks, and much more. Pretty much anything can get connected these days. Of course, with all these devices fighting for bandwidth on your network, you’re going to need a wireless router capable of handling them all. Find out below what makes these routers so amazing and how to enter for your chance to win one!
Networking woes affect everyone, from students to families
If you’re a newly admitted college or university student, you’re probably accustomed to pretty good Wi-Fi at home. Take it from someone who went from a house with 4 people maximum using Wi-Fi to a house with 6 to 8 people using the Wi-Fi at one time: you’re going to want a better router. Even when I was at home, we would still have dropouts and slowdowns because the router we had just wasn’t up to the task of handling streaming, video gaming, working, and web browsing for us. When I moved into a shared house this problem became even worse because we didn’t think about the router we all pitched in on.
And this isn’t just my problem. I investigated the problems people have with their Wi-Fi, and found out that students, families, and many more people experience similar issues. For example, check out this testimonial of networking woes that someone posted on Reddit:
I’ve moved into a new apartment and I thought they provided routers themselves because, when I came in, I saw a sticky note on the table of the password and everybody had the same router name with a different number … I will have to buy my own router to connect to the internet when he [the roommate] moves out at the end of the month.
I was cool with it. At least he let me know beforehand. Ever since, I’ve been trying to look into which router I want. I don’t want what he has because I noticed that internet gets slow at certain periods of time, if it even decides to work at all.
Just imagine writing an important term paper and trying to submit it 5 minutes before the deadline in this situation. The Wi-Fi kicks out and suddenly your paper is late and you are docked a letter grade. Yikes!
If you’re not a student and just have you and your family to worry about, things may not go as smoothly as you’d expect. Take this Reddit post for example:
So asking you guys what would be my best option for the home network? … The wife works from home and needs reliable internet, the kids youtube and fortnite all day and we will be using three nest cameras a nest hello and nest thermostat / smoke detectors.
As these two examples show, reliable Wi-Fi is more than a matter of convenience, it’s a matter of safety and dependability.
How D-Link Wi-Fi routers can help
Now that we’re aware of the pitfalls that bad W-Fi brings, lets find out how these 2 models of D-Link routers can help. The D-Link AC2000+ comes loaded with features designed to make your Wi-Fi connections more reliable. It has dual bands, so you can connect different devices on different bands to maximize the number of things that can connect to it. With support of 802.11g/n/ac at 5GHz, you can be assured of interference-free connectivity. Its integrated SmartConnect technology can automatically find and assign the best connection bands for your devices, so your network is optimized without any hassle from you. Plus it has MU-MIMO technology to connect multiple devices simultaneously, meaning there’s less waiting around to get connected.
The D-Link Wireless AC3000 has 6 antennas and 3 Wi-Fi bands, ensuring that there’s plenty of coverage and bandwidth available for all your Wi-Fi enabled tech gadgets, from laptops to security cameras. It has a dual core processor, MU-MIMO, and SmartConnect technology to automatically optimize your network. You can even control it with your voice using Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, making network management and maintenance quick and hassle-free. If that weren’t enough, it also works with additional D-Link Mesh-enabled routers and extenders to create a whole-house network for a strong signal no matter if you’re in the kitchen, bedroom, or anywhere else.
As you’ve probably gathered from the specs packed into these routers, there are plenty of things in your life that need Wi-Fi beyond your laptop. If you have many devices that need access to your bandwidth, these D-Link routers are a great choice for you.
