D-Link’s Wireless AC Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520) is a handy add-on for expanding the Wi-Fi coverage in your home, especially in areas where it’s difficult to get a clear signal, like basements and backyards. The Wi-Fi Dual Band Range Extender eliminates dead zones by expanding the range of your current home network, sending out both 2.4GHz or 5GHz signals to an existing single or dual band router.

The small device is made to be plugged directly into a standard electrical outlet and it has an easy push-button setup for auto-configuration.

This is the first Dual Band Range Extender available in Canada and as President of D-Link Canada, Lou Reda says, "As more Canadians bring mobile and connected devices into their home, the amount of time spent online, as well as the need for stronger wireless signals will continue to surge." The Wireless AC Dual Band Range Extender (DAP-1520) is available for $79.99 online through D-Link, as well as a number of Canadian retailers.
