Features

Take Your Networking Performance to a Higher Level

4 High-Gain Antennas and MU-MIMO technology combine for enhanced Wi-Fi coverage in and around your home. The DIR-878 avoids interference to deliver the fastest wireless speeds, improved coverage and reliable connections. You can do multiplayer gaming, 4K streaming, file transfers, video chat, email, and web surfing all at the same time.

High Powered Amplifier

With the DIR-878, you can connect wherever and however you want. It's more than just a regular router.

With it's built-in high-powered amplifier, and AC technology you can enjoy wireless coverage throughout your home. Watch videos in an upstairs room, Skype from your home office, or browse and stream from your couch.

4 Gigabit Ports

Wired performance 10x faster than traditional Fast Ethernet for the best wired online experience for 4K streaming and gaming.

Do More With Dual Band

Use the 2.4 GHz band for everyday tasks, while leaving the high-speed 5GHz AC band free for 4K video streaming, online gaming and large file transfers.

With fewer devices using the high-speed 5GHz band, there's less interference and congestion, giving you better performance and a lag-free wireless experience.

New User Interface

Controlling your network by enabling parental controls, blocking unwanted devices, monitoring internet activity and creating Wi-Fi guest networks is easier than ever with our new interface.

Hassle-Free D-Link Smart Connect Technology

Ever since the introduction of 5 GHz wireless technology, users have had to blindly guess whether the 5 GHz or 2.4 GHz band would provide them with the best networking experience. D-Link's Smart Connect Technology eliminates this confusion by automatically distributing devices to the optimal network. Simply initiate a connection to the DIR-878 and its advanced algorithms will determine the best network for your device to connect to, thereby ensuring a faster, more reliable, and hassle-free experience for your friends, colleagues, and family.

Easy to Set Up and Protect

Sharing your Internet connection doesn't have to be a complicated process; just open a web browser to access the setup wizard and follow the easy step- by-step instructions to get started. Configure, apply, and set up WPA/WPA2 wireless security in minutes with the wireless network setup wizard, or use Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS), which establishes an encrypted wireless connection to new devices without the need to enter settings or create passwords. In addition, the built-in firewall requires no setup, protecting you against malicious attacks from the Internet, and access control features allow you to restrict access to your network giving you greater control over network users.
