D-Link COVR in Singapore

Saw this teaser in D-Link Facebook then did a brief online search and realise they should be launching their new product called Covr in Singapore soon.

Will share more again cos it is so-called an entire home wi-fi system...

SNB already has a full coverage and review on this. Despite the name suggests, its still not a wifi mesh but merely operating like Orbi.

But the results for the speed is remarkable as comparing to other systems out there.

Will be keen to read about the local experience instead since technically, SNB has already published the technical tests done in accordance to their standardised wifi testing standards.

They should in order to keep up with their competitors.
As even now starhub switch to linksys routers n google wifi.
That is after using dlink for donkey years and their products were being outclassed and worse were customers complaints.

I have to say D-Link is no longer the leading brand like 6 to 7 years ago. I remember seeing their very nice booths everytime at the shows and drawing so much attention.

Guess they put in effort but perhaps not as strong as competitors? Its a good brand afterall~



If only their packaging is as nice as this for all their products...

Yea it is good brand.
But it do require to update the router firmware to maintain up to standard.
Currently using both DLink 868L routers and having a good wireless speed after firmware update.

Do you know there is problem in this 850L model as latest news.

Using 868L now and also quite happy with its performance, I also like the design, sleek to put inside cupboard.

Security, D-Link have advise release next week although I am not impacted, haha.. Not good in security, but with hacking methods getting sophisticated.. I believe this type of news will be more and more common. April period, Linksys and tplink also have vulnerability issues..

Back to Covr, anyone care to buy and share real experience ? Not real mesh a Orbi ? Does that mean Velop or Tp Deco is real mesh?

Velop and deco are real meshes.

There's a new update of orbi which supports communication between satellites. So if that's the case, it will be a true mesh network as well, unless there are some other limiting factors..

Read about it... but it seems like the hackers are only targeting d-link at the moment... maybe they will give xmas "presents" to Asus or TP-Link or even Netgear! Even govt sites also can be hacked lor, u say leh...

What's the point of hacking dlink routers only? I guess it's more of exploiting a flaw which only exists in dlink?
