General Questions
« on: March 14, 2018, 08:40:46 AM »

1. How is the COVR-C1203 Whole Home Wi-Fi solution different from our other Wi-Fi solutions?

COVR-C1203’s key differentiator is its balance of sleek, elegant design, and seamless whole-home networking. Other whole-home networking solutions are geared towards high-end, niche consumers who place a premium on performance and speed for data-intensive activities such as multiple users streaming HD video and online gaming. COVR-C1203 aims to bring high-speed whole home networking within reach of general, everyday users who would like to experience the benefits of mesh networking in their own home.

The COVR-C1203’s seamless Wi-Fi solution is the perfect fit for your modern home featuring three COVR-C1200 Covr Points for complete coverage. Its Smart Roaming technology enables your devices to stay automatically connected to the nearest Covr Point in your home, with all Covr Points working together as one. That means you can seamlessly move from room to room while staying connected at all times.

Covr uses MU-MIMO technology which efficiently handles traffic to multiple devices for even greater wireless speeds. With three Covr Points, you can bring Wi-Fi coverage to an area of up to a massive 5000 square feet.



2. Can I add more Covr Points to my network?

Yes. You can have up to 6 covr points.



3. Does COVR-1200 support bridge mode?

No. COVR-1200 does not support bridge mode. Currently, the models supporting bridge mode are: DIR- 895L, DIR-885L, DIR-880L, DIR-868L, DIR-865L and DIR-605L.



4. Does COVR-C1203 support VLAN?

No, currently COVR-C1203 does not support VLAN functionality.



5. Can I adjust the 2.4G or 5G wireless bands for COVR-C1203?

No, the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless bands cannot be configured separately. Instead, COVR-C1203 features a single network with a single Wi-Fi network name (SSID) which uses intelligent band steering to automatically place your devices on the optimal wireless band, either 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz.



6. How many simultaneous users can my Wi-Fi network handle?

The more devices that are simultaneously connected to your Covr Wi-Fi network, the slower the transfer speed will be for each device. For the best performance, D-Link recommends a maximum of 32 simultaneously connected users.

My current building has 5 floors,
in each floor has 2 rooms 1 sala,
my main router are in the 3rd floor sala comes along with 16ports gigabit lan swutch hub
and spread connections to each floors 2 rooms & 1 sala with backbone internet cable.

Q1: can I change all my 15 units AP coneected w/ backbone internet cable to COVR-C1203 wich is 5 sets (3 units/set)? since you said can increase up to 6 (maybe just example).
Q2: how to config all those COVR1203? I saw tutorial video that you need to put them close togeather so they can find each other and bopost up the signals, so how I'm gonna do it in separate rooms and floors?
Q3: Can I use a main router like COVR-3902 and use multiple COVR-C1203 to connect them togeather? or COVR-1203 can only pair with the same model?

You can connect all the remote Points via ethernet however to the A Point router.
Q2: how to config all those COVR1203? I saw tutorial video that you need to put them close together so they can find each other and bopost up the signals, so how I'm gonna do it in separate rooms and floors? I found that if you initially set up all the remote Points with the main router first, then place them in the remote locations seems to work well.
Q3: Can I use a main router like COVR-3902 and use multiple COVR-C1203 to connect them togeather? or COVR-1203 can only pair with the same model?
The 3902 is only limited to the 1 remote Point extender. It's also not ethernet back haul supporting.
