WD today unveiled the new My Net AC1300 HD Dual-Band Router and My Net AC Bridge as the latest additions to the My Net family of HD dual-band routers.
These products combine next-generation 802.11ac wireless technology
with WD's FasTrack technology for automatically prioritizing
high-bandwidth entertainment services like Netflix, YouTube, online
games and Skype, to provide maximum streaming performance inside the
FasTrack prioritization technology and next-generation AC Wi-Fi
work together in the My Net AC1300 router to deliver high-definition
streaming content to gaming consoles, media players, smart TVs,
tablets, smartphones, computers and other Wi-Fi connected devices at
speeds up to 3 times faster and with more reliable coverage, than
wireless-N Wi-Fi. With dual-band performance up to 450 + 1300
Megabits per second (Mbps) and FasTrack technology, the My Net
AC1300 features 802.11n wireless technology on the 2.4 GHz band and
802.11ac wireless technology on the 5 GHz band. Both bands work
simultaneously to reduce streaming delays and interference with the
multitude of Wi-Fi devices connected to the network. The My Net
AC1300 achieves its throughput and signal quality via a horizontal
3x3 antenna array design.
Setup is as easy as plugging in the new router and running the
integrated automatic setup via the web browser on any smartphone,
tablet or PC. Additionally, the My Net Dashboard makes it easy to
customize, monitor or change settings on the network, by providing
access to parental controls, Internet security settings, network
name and password settings, all in one easy view.
The router also featrues four Gigabit Ethernet ports for wired
devices, as well as two USB 2.0 ports. Additionally, My Net AC1300
is Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) certified for easy detection and
connection of Wi-Fi devices, as well as Windows 8 certified for
support of the new Microsoft operating system.
With the new My Net AC Bridge, users can convert up to four devices
like a smart TV, game console, Blu-ray disc player and media player
from wired-Ethernet to wireless and get fast AC Wi-Fi speeds. This
reduces the amount of network cabling needed in the home without
sacrificing the throughput Ethernet provides. The My Net AC Bridge
is set up by pushing the WPS buttons on the bridge and the My Net
AC1300 router (or other brands' AC routers).
My Net AC1300 Router and My Net AC Bridge are available now at
select U.S. retailers and online at wdstore.com. Manufacturer's
Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) is $189.99 USD for My Net AC1300 and
$149.99 USD for My Net AC Bridge.
