Packaging for the EXO includes a rather large image of the router on the front with a few specs of marketing below.

On the backside, we have a little more detail on the features of the router including the Amplifiers, Beamforming and SmartConnect technology.

Opening the box, I first noticed how well the router is packed. D-Link definitely put a little more thought into this solution.

The scope of delivery included the power adapter, Ethernet cable, and screws.

Looking at the EXO, we find a similar aesthetic to the Ultra tested over a year ago. This time around D-Link is using an orange scheme, but we still have the sleek antennas on the sides.

The back of the router houses reset, WPS, and power buttons with four Gigabit LAN ports and a WAN port in yellow.
