D-Link unveils DIR-412 3.5G Wireless Router

d-link DIR-412 3.5G Wireless Router

Anyone who deals with networking and wireless products would definitely have chanced upon the name D-Link, and recently D-Link Middle East has a new wireless router for the masses – the DIR-412 3.5G Wireless Router. For those who are in the market for a new wireless router, why not consider the D-Link brand if you’ve been using other names so far? That is, assuming you are having problems with the other marques, of course, otherwise there is no need to reinvent the wheel in such a case. The DIR-412 comes across as a diminutive 3.5G router which enables users to share a 3.5G Internet connection via a secure, high-speed wireless network whenever one hooks up a 3.5G wireless USB adapter to it. This ought to get those frequent travelers sitting upright at such news, since it offers unprecedented connectivity options regardless of where you go – just make sure your 3.5G data-enabled account has unlimited data and the cheapest roaming charges around beforehand.

The DIR-412 comes with integrated Wireless N 150 technology, boasting increased speed and range while enabling one to hook to a DSL/cable modem in order for it to function as a primary or backup link. Apart from that, the DIR-412 also supports WAN failover to ensure uninterrupted connection by connecting users to a 3.5G network automatically in the event where the WAN connection is lost or dropped.

According to Harrison Albert, Regional Sales Director at D-Link Middle East, “The DIR-412 is excellent for situations where conventional forms of network access are less than convenient. With the transition to wireless, this device provides users with an affordable 3.5G option that is also highly dependable.”

Security-wise, you need not fret too much as the DIR-412 boasts advanced network security with WPA/WPA2 encryption, while offering flexible coverage with multiple frequency support. Setting up the device in terms of security is but a simple affair, where all you need to do is press the WPS button which is located conveniently above the router to get seucrity up and running. In addition, D-Link has thrown in dual-active firewalls (SPI and NAT) to prevent potential attacks and intrusions from across the Internet in the DIR-412. Sounds like a dream device, eh?

  1. I own a DIR-412 and I am not satisfied with the performance. Signal strength is not better than my Linksys WRT54G. Two walls, and you’ll get only one bar signal if not nothing. Very disappointing because one of the Wireless N promise is to have increased range coverage.
    I also frequently lost access to the 3G internet. My computer can access DIR-412 administration pages and got an IP from it, but somehow it failed to trigger the 3G modem to initiate an internet connection session (I setup only 3G internet connection and I set it to connect on demand.) I have to restart the router (that is turn the power off-wait-and turn it on again) to enable the 3G internet access.
