D-Link DIR-879 EXO AC1900 Wireless Router Review (Page 3)

Management GUI


The management for the 879 is rather simple to use, and it all starts with a wizard to get the router setup.


After setup is complete, you land at the screen above. As you can see, D-Link has chosen to go with a modern look with tabs above and all the info you need at the bottom.


The Basic wireless menu allows you to change the SSID of your networks along with passwords and the bands you want to use.


QoS for the D-Link is one of the nicer setups I have seen. You simply select from the connected clients and drag and drop where you want them to be prioritized.


D-Link has also included a nice feature in the statistics server showing you the past few minutes of traffic on the router for each interface.
