At a Glance

The DIR-880L isn't the best router on the market, but it's a good choice if you don't need the power and performance that more-expensive 802.11ac models have to offer.

Price when rated: $190


  • Very easy to manage via the cloud
  • The best choice for consumers buying into D-Link's connected-home portfolio
  • Can share up to two USB devices (printer, scanner, or hard drive) over the network


  • 802.11ac performance not as fast as more-expensive competitors
  • SharePort hobbles USB storage sharing
  • No iTunes server, no ftp server, limited advanced features
