- Very good cloud integration with mobile apps to support the initiative
- DLNA media server
- Better than average TCP throughput with 2.4GHz 802.11n
- Fewer features than similarly priced 802.11ac routers
- Only one USB port to support storage or a printer--not both
- Very slow performance writing large files to an attached USB hard drive
At A Glance
D-Link's is on the right path with its cloud initiative, but the DIR-865L isn't the best 802.11ac router we've tested.
The D-Link Cloud Router 5700 (DIR-865L) provides revolutionary Gigabit 802.11ac wireless speed ÃÂ¢ÃÂÃÂ up to 1750Mbps (combined 1300 AC + 450 N) for flawless HD video streaming to multiple devices. That's because 802.11ac speed is 3 times faster than conventional router speed.
