High-Speed Wireless Networking
Create a high-speed wireless network for your home using this Cloud Router. Connect the device to a broadband modem and wirelessly share your high-speed Internet connection at up to 300 Mbps. Enjoy surfing the web, checking email, and chatting with family and friends online. The router uses Wireless N technology, which offers increased speed and range over the 802.11g standard. It features NAT (Network Address Translation), allowing multiple users to connect to the Internet by sharing a single IP address. The Cloud Gigabit Router N300 also includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports that give you the flexibility to connect wired devices to the network at the highest speeds. It uses Intelligent Antenna technology to transmit multiple streams of data by bouncing multiple wireless signals off of walls enabling you to receive wireless signals in the farthest corners of your home.
Smart QoS prioritisation
With some routers, all wired and wireless traffic, including Voice over IP (VoIP), video streaming, online gaming, and web browsing are mixed together into a single data stream. By handling data this way, applications such as streaming video may stutter or have an unstable connection. With the D Link Smart QoS technology, wired and wireless traffic is analysed and separated into multiple data streams. Different applications like voice, video, and data will be automatically detected and the transmission sequence will be automatically prioritised.
Share and Stream Files with Shareport™ Mobile
Connect a USB storage device to your Cloud Gigabit Router N300 to create a shared storage space, making it easy to share files between computers and devices connected to your network. Plug in a USB hard drive to stream your library of videos and music to your laptop. An easy to use web interface lets you access, upload, and play files stored on your USB drive, and the SharePort™ Mobile app for iOS and Android™ devices allows you to back up photos and videos stored on your device. You can even customise your shared storage space by creating separate accounts to control access to the USB drive, so you can share your music with everyone but keep your personal files private.
This router is ready for the future of the Internet with support for the upcoming move from IPv4 to IPv6. It carries the IPv6 Ready Gold Logo, meaning that it not only supports the IPv6 protocol, but is also compatible with IPv6 equipment from other manufacturers. Using a dual-stack architecture, this router can handle routing for both IPv4 and IPv6 networks at the same time, so you can be assured that your router is forward and backward compatible.
D-Link’s Cloud Gigabit Router N300 is part of D-Link Green™, D-Link’s programme for providing eco friendly alternatives without compromising performance. The DIR-636L supports Green Ethernet technology, which reduces power consumption by setting Ethernet ports in stand-by mode if no traffic is detected. The WLAN Scheduler function turns off your wireless network when it is not needed, for example at night or during weekends. Also power consumption is further reduced with its Energy Star™ power supply.
Easy to Install and Use
With the D-Link Easy Setup Wizard, you can set up your wireless network in minutes. The wizard will guide you through an easy to follow process to install your new hardware, connect to your network, and add new devices. It configures your Internet Service Provider (ISP) settings to quickly establish broadband Internet connectivity. In addition, this router is Wi-Fi Protected Setup™ (WPS) certified, making it even easier to configure your wireless network and enable security.
