D-Link ships router capable of 1,750Mbps costs $190

D-Link has began shipping its first router equipped with 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, or what the maker calls 5G. The Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L) is said to be capable of reaching speeds of up to 1,750Mbps speeds when operating in this dual mode, which is made up of 1,300Mbps wireless-AC and 450Mbps wireless-N speeds. It also ships with the Cloud App, which lets owners monitor and control the home network remotely.

Content from a connected USB port can be quickly shared to mobile devices as well thanks to another D-Link mobile app, SharePort. Four 10/100/1,000 Ethernet ports allow adding a wired connection to devices.

At the heart of the router is Broadcom's 5G Wi-Fi (802.11ac) chip, which is said to offer transfer speeds up to three times faster that the best Wireless N tech. It also uses a 5GHz band for less interference and is backwards-compatible as well as future-proof thanks to supporting the IPv6 standard. Security is ensured thanks to an SPI firewall and WPA/WPA2 security.

The router is now shipping at online retailers, priced at $190.
