Router Setup and Management Interface




First connection to the 868L leaves us preparing to set it up. Here we have the option of manual or an automated process.




There is also an additional wireless setup wizard. Optionally, you can set your connection up manually.




As routers have matured, they have also become a central point for adding storage to your network. Here you can setup users, in addition to the storage medium.




Here we have the media server menu. From within, you can setup the built-in DLNA server, along with the iTunes server and enabling USB 3.0. A side note about USB 3.0 use is the adverse effects that have been documented with the 2.4GHz band. With this, D-Link gives you a pop-up warning when you enable it.




The 868L supports the cloud service myDlink, allowing you to access and manage your router from anywhere in the world. Additionally, you can access the storage on the router on the go.




The QoS engine has been widely revamped here, especially if I compare this to my personal router, the DIR-857.




Advanced wireless allows you to control the transmit power for both bands.
