D-Link AC5300 Ultra Wi-Fi Router (DIR-895L/R)
Inside are three radio bands that can deliver theoretical data rates of up to 5,332Mbps (1,000Mbps on the 2.4GHz band, and 2,166Mbps on each of the two 5GHz bands) and a 1.4GHz dual-core processor. It’s a 4X4 router, which means it uses four independent streams to deliver data, and it offers all of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi technology, including MU-MIMO simultaneous streaming, beamforming (signal steering), and Smart Connect (automatic band switching).
