Setup of the DIR-890L/R is quite simple and uses a new firmware than what we are used to seeing on D-Link solutions. To begin setup, you follow through a few menus including the one above.
The DIR-890L/R is unique with the way the network is setup in that while being similar to the Linksys solution, the D-Link houses all three bands under one SSID and password, it then chooses a network for you based on the device connecting.
Above, we have the new dashboard. As you can see, like similar solutions, we get an overview of what's going on with the router in one page.
The DIR-890L/R, like said above, by default puts all networks under one SSID and chooses based on device. If you would like to separate your networks, and setup multiple SSIDs, you must disable Smart Connect.
SharePort is the platform for media sharing and SMB servers on D-Link solutions. As seen above, you can setup a DLNA server, along with Windows file sharing.
The D-Link QoS engine allows you to drag and drop your devices into categories allowing you to decide what gets priority on the network.
A unique feature of the DIR-890L/R is the statistics menu that shows you activity across each band separately. This includes LAN and both WLAN networks.
