D-Link DIR-868L review: extremely fast router

Flagship 802.11ac router


Minimalistic design

The vertical, cylindrical design of the D-Link DIR-868L is definitely unique, and D-Link kept it minimalistic as well. The front has two LEDs, one to indicate it's on and the other to tell you whether it has internet. Green is good, orange means there is no connection.

The back features four LAN ports and a WAN port, all gigabit of course. The WPS button and the USB 3.0 port are located above the network ports, the power switch and power adapter are below them. The WPS button is very tiny, and is not always easy to locate when you're in front of the router. 

If you want to hang the D-Link DIR-868L on the wall, the bottom has grooves you can slide screws into. Due to the design, the router will stand out quite a bit from the wall.
