This look at the D-Link DIR-860L router is focused exclusively on security, which probably makes it the first review of its kind.
My last blog, How secure can your router get?, described a checklist of router security features on my RouterSecurity.org site. Here I employ that checklist to evaluate the security aspects of a random router.
There is nothing special about the DIR-860L, I just happened to have access to a new one. It’s a dual band router, one of the first to support AC Wi-Fi. It was released in 2013 and currently sells for around $70.
