D-Link announces Covr Wi-Fi System


Recommended Posts

D-Link announced a handful of new products today and one is the Covr Wi-Fi System.


As more devices are added to Covr's network, its intuitive features take away the complexity of managing a home wireless network. Smart Steering technology works to balance the load between the 2.4 and 5GHz wireless bands. Covr intelligently prioritizes activities and steers devices between bands as more devices connect, making sure each device has optimal performance. Covr, unlike a traditional router-extender solution, creates a seamless network with a single network name (SSID) which allows users to move throughout the home while devices automatically connect to the strongest signal, eliminating the need to disconnect and reconnect. Additional Seamless Extenders (DAP-1655) can be added to expand coverage in larger homes.

Covr Wi-Fi System Key Features

  • MU-MIMO Technology: Efficiently handles large groups of concurrent users
  • Smart Steering: Devices automatically connect to the router and range extender depending on which networking device provides the optimal Wi-Fi signal
  • 11AC Wireless Speeds2
    • AC2600 Dual-Band MU-MIMO Wi-Fi Router (DIR-883) – 4x4 11ac with up to 1733Mbps on the 5GHz band and 800Mbps on 2.4GHz band for maximum throughput with less interference
    • AC1300 Gigabit Wi-Fi Extender (DAP-1655) – 2x2 11ac with up to 867Mbps on the 5GHz band and 400Mbps on the 2.4GHz band
  • Dynamic Adaption: Load balancing to ensure the 2.4GHz and 5GHZ bands are optimized
  • Easy Setup: Router and Extender come pre-paired out of the box for simple setup
  • Backwards Compatible: Supports legacy devices and Wi-Fi standards (802.11n/g)


"While other mesh network solutions rely on multiple access points, D-Link's Covr Wi-Fi System uses a premium router as the backbone of the wireless network. The router provides the advanced features and speed needed to power bandwidth intensive activities like 4K streaming and gaming on multiple devices. Combined with seamless extenders to cover hard to reach areas, Covr delivers a Wi-Fi signal to all areas of the home including upstairs, basements and backyards."
