Your internet will never fail you again
Disruptions can happen at any time, but D-Link has built the DWR-978 router to eliminate them altogether with D-Link Failover technology. When your 5G/LTE cellular provider is having technical difficulties, the DWR-978 router will jump into action by switching to the internet via your fixed-line (Fibre/Cable/DSL), so you can keep working, playing or watching as normal.
Cut down on dead spots and loading times
Two (2) high-performance antennas deliver WiFi speeds of up to 2.6 Gbps throughout every corner of your home, making it easy for you to stay connected at the highest speeds possible despite any structural interference. The DWR-978 router’s MU-MIMO technology ensures multiple devices get high-bandwidth WiFi at the same time, distributing data more efficiently and giving you faster WiFi speeds throughout your home.
Stay protected from online threats
The DWR-978 router supports WPA3 – the latest version of the WiFi Protected Access (WPA) protocol that encrypts user data and protects wireless networks from outside threats. WPA3 includes a protector to verify authentication and secure your devices’ connections while further protecting your wireless network from attacks.
