The D-Link DIR-806 Wireless AC1200 Dual Band Router with Signal Plus creates a fast
home network that connects all of your computers and mobile devices to your broadband
Internet connection.

Concurrent dual-band 802.11ac brings you the future of high-bandwidth wireless connectivity, providing transfer rates of up to 1.2 Gbps (900AC + 300N), which allows you to surf the web, stream HD video, and make VoIP calls, from every corner of your home without interruption.

The DIR-806 operates on both the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless bands at the same time using concurrent dual-band technology and six external antennas. This allows you to browse the web, chat, and email using the 2.4 GHz band, while simultaneously streaming digital media, playing online games, or making Internet phone calls over the 5 GHz band.

The DIR-806's 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet ports provide high-speed wired connections for up to four PCs or other devices. D-Link Intelligent Quality of Service (QoS) technology will prioritize important Internet traffic such as movie streaming, online gaming, or VoIP calls, improving the performance of these applications.

Furthermore, the DIR-806 is certified as IPv6 Ready, signifying that it not only supports the future IPv6 protocol, but is also compatible with IPv6 equipment from other manufacturers, so you can be assured that your equipment is forward and backward compatible.
