Excerpt: D-Link really has gotten a feel for it this year. We've seen one new product after the other. Earlier we got the flagship model from their standard line of routers the DIR-857, and now it's apparently time for the 802.11ac router, the DIR-865L. Also known as the Wireless AC 1750 Dual Band Cloud Router, this can be seen as the second D-Link flagship model of this year.
Summary: Gamers and those who require the fastest possible throughput from their router should definitely check out the $189 D-Link Cloud Router 5700 DIR-865L. We wish that D-Link would invest in a better design and a more intuitive setup process, which would give its products more universal appeal.
Pros: Incredibly fast, Two good mobile apps, Four gigabit Ethernet ports
Cons: Old-school setup, No widgets, USB does not support printers
Conclusion: D-Link's DIR-865 L falls short in overall performance compared with other draft 11ac routers on the market. Issues with features that should make the DIR-865 L stand from its competitors such as the SharePort utility and the mydlink cloud service are too problematic to give the DIR-865 L an edge over competitors.
Pros: Provides 11ac as well as 802.11n. USB port for attaching USB drives. Robust IPv6 support.
Cons: Performs worse than competing draft 11ac routers on the market. USB port does not support printers. SharePort utility interface issues. Problems signing up and registering for mydlink cloud service.
Excerpt: Also known as the Wireless AC 1750 Dual Band Cloud Router, the DIR-865L is D-Link's flagship 802.11ac model. You do get a lot of router for your money, and this is one of the cheaper 11ac options. See also: Group test: what's the best wireless router?
Excerpt: Opsætningen forløber ganske smertefrit og uden problemer. Det burde den også gøre bagefter, når routeren skal administreres. I modsætning til den til iPad- og iPhone-udviklede QRS-app, der har en nydelig, moderne brugergrænseflade, når routeren skal administreres, så er den webbaserede brugergrænseflade på ingen måde nyskabende.
