As of late DLink has been filling market gaps in its portfolio, first with its Mesh solution DLink Covr and today we look at a rather low cost AC2600 class solution from the EXO lineup, the DIR-882.
The DIR-882 is built from the same hardware as the DIR-878 and while the 878 was capable of AC2600, DLink had turned a few things off to make it competitive in the AC1900 class market. For the 882, DLink is aiming for a efficient gaming and streaming solution with features like QoS, Advanced Beamforming, and DLNA support.
This solution does support and feature USB 3.0 ports for storage while offering dual-band performance of 800Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1733Mbps on the 5GHz band. This comes through in a 4x4 configuration supporting both 80 and 160Mhz streams on the 5GHz band
Hardware specifications of the 882 give us a simple look at the setup of the router. For instance, we have support for 802.11agn/ac with four-gigabit ethernet ports and one gigabit WAN port.
Doing a little digging on this solution we found it is a MediaTek platform offering a dual-core 880MHz processor backed by 128MB of memory and 128MB of NAND Flash. The Wi-Fi chipsets are the same for each band in the MediaTek 7615N with the ethernet switch also from MediaTek in the 7621A.
Moving down the list this solution supports WPA and WPA2 along with WPS PIN setup. Its compatible with DLNA 2, IPv6 and is Wi-Fi certified. The MSRP of the DLink DIR 882 comes in at $149.99 with a one-year warranty.
