Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender Works with Existing Router to Extend Wi-Fi to Those Hard to Reach Places

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — D-Link today announced that the new Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1520) is now shipping. Designed to easily eliminate Wi-Fi dead zones, this latest addition to the D-Link® family of networking solutions is ideal for bringing wireless coverage to hard-to-reach areas in the home like basements, upstairs bedrooms and outdoor areas. The compact Range Extender provides wireless speeds of up to 750Mbps, perfect for seamless web browsing and high bandwidth Internet activities like HD video streaming and online gaming.

“As the number of mobile devices in a household increases and we spend more time online, more and more consumers are looking to extend their Wi-Fi coverage and solve the problem of the dreaded dead zone in the home,” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc. “Our new Wi-Fi Range Extender not only works with virtually any wireless router brand to extend an existing 802.11g, 11n or 11ac network, it does so with the push of a button and can be configured using a mobile device, without the need for a PC. One can simply plug the extender into a wall socket within range of a current wireless signal, and instantly expand the wireless network to the furthest corners of the home.”

Utilizing Wireless AC technology, which offers speeds up to three times faster than Wireless N, the new Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1520) enables users to take advantage of the latest in wireless technology while still remaining backward compatible with Wireless 802.11n, g and b networks. This range extender can also be used to add dual band wireless capabilities to a single band router, helping to reduce Wi-Fi interference from nearby wireless transmitters in the home for maximum throughput. In addition, the Dual Band Wi-Fi Range Extender features a simple one-button installation so users need only press the WPS button on the existing router and then on the extender to sync and instantly increase the coverage of a wireless home network. Users whose routers do not have a WPS button can use a web browser or D-Link’s free QRS Mobile app for simple setup.
