It is understandable on why the product is of such a size, the D-Link AC2600 is as the name indicates – having AC2600 allows it to provide high-speed network connectivity while not forgetting it also has MIMO technology that allows multiple antenna to work simultaneously to provide high speed and reduce transfer errors.

D-Link AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1860) Review

Being an Extender, what it does is that it expands the coverage of your existing network. Put it in a more simple term, it acts like a middle person. By providing stronger network signal, you are now to get faster Internet connection

Here’s what it looks like with and without using the extender, my main “Wi-Fi” signal is located on the upper floor of my residence while the D-Link AC2600 is placed at the lower floor at the socket closest to the main signal.

You get what you paid for – the D-Link AC5600 might be a device that connects wirelessly but it delivers as if you are using the network right next to the modem itself.

The Verdict

Retailing at RM 530, the D-Link AC2600 Wi-Fi Range Extender (DAP-1860) isn’t cheap but I guess RM 530 isn’t that much to pay if you have a family and you want to provide everyone around the house the best possible coverage. šŸ™‚ The only down side of this device is that it’s huge, as in really huge! It’s so huge, you can even use it for self-defense, like say beating up a cockroach.
