The DIR-X1560 Router feature Multiple-User MIMO (MU-MIMO) technology and Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), a signature element of Wi-Fi 6. OFDMA provides exceptional capacity by splitting a channel into four sub-channels and supports faster bandwidth and connectivity distribution to devices, eliminating congestion and network queues.

What’s more, the DIR-X1560 supports voice assistant capabilities, allowing users to enable or disable Wi-Fi access, check log-in credentials or reboot the system via voice-enabled smart speakers using Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant.

Easy to set up, users can access how-to guides to install their new Router via D-Link’s dedicated app. Once installed, users are provided with many management tools and parental control features that allow them to tailor network access enabling safer Internet connectivity.
