Important information when choosing your modem
If you have a large house- the DLink AC2600 Wi-Fi Gigabit Router (DIR-882) combines ultra-fast next generation Wi-Fi with Gigabit Ethernet and a dual-core processor for enhanced performance, with advanced AC SmartBeam which can bring dead zones back to life by delivering individual beams of bandwidth where you need it. 4 Gigabit ports give you lightning fast wired connections and dual USB ports let you access content on your network.
The MyRepublic Wi-Fi Hub+ has AC1600 technology and is also dual band, providing a good modem for small- medium households.
Wireless-AC has wider bandwidth capabilities of 80 MHz (and an optional 160 MHz). By comparison, older N-Series Modems bandwidth was only 20 or 40 MHz. Imagine the MHz as lanes on a highway: 20 MHz represents 2 lanes and 80 MHz represents 8 lanes. The more lanes available, the larger the amount of data that can pass through simultaneously, giving you the maximum performance connection speed.
Multi Input Multi Output (MU-MIMO) available on D-Link DIR 882
MU-MIMO allows communication with 4 different devices at the same time where you only used to be able to connect one. No longer is there a queue of connectivity on a router waiting for availability. With Wireless-AC, more devices can connect instantly to a single router, with less interference or disruptions.
Why have 2 bands?
Both Modems use wireless-AC with a choice of the 5 GHz and 2.4 GHz bands. Most people will use the 5GHz frequency most of the time, but if you are on the edge of your Wi-Fi Modem’s reach, use the 2.4 GHz network as it is slower but more stable when you are further away from your connection point.
