Experience up to AX1800 speeds while 1024-QAM boosts throughput to devices by up to 25% and 80 MHz contiguous channel width gives even more bandwidth. Up to 4 simultaneous streams let you enjoy faster, more enjoyable 4K streaming, online gaming and more, and should you require them - 4 Gigabit LAN ports and 1 Gigabit WAN port give you faster wired connectivity whenever you wish.
The DIR-X1860 uses Wi-Fi 6’s cutting-edge Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology.
Small data packets destined for multiple devices are transmitted together and never have to queue up again.
Perfect for Smart Homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices battling for bandwidth.
MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously.
With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X1860 leverages the multi-user version of OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better efficiency of upstream AND downstream transmissions, unlike previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only operate simultaneously in downstream transmissions.
This combination greatly increases capacity, coverage and performance in ultra-high-density environments.
We put the DIR-X1860 to the test against our nearest competitors and the results speak for themselves.
The DIR-X1860 outperformed our nearest competitor with consistently faster download speeds over greater distances, everytime.
High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X1860 to extend the reach of your Wi-Fi
and focus a stronger signal in the direction of your devices to ensure a stronger, faster and more reliable Wi-Fi experience.
Meanwhile a long OFDM symbol ensures even greater Wi-Fi range, especially outside the home.
One of the biggest concerns with IoT devices and Wi-Fi networks is privacy. The latest industry-standard 128-bit encryption is the most advanced security standard available and begins a new era of wireless encryption, ensuring greater privacy throughout users’ devices and networks.
Latest 128-bit encryption will replace previous industry-standard encryptions on Wi-Fi devices
Creates stronger and more unique encryption keys for each device
Stronger protection for users against password guessing attempts
Creates stronger and more unique encryption keys for each device
Cannot use a cracked password to decrypt previously-intercepted traffic
D-Link Routers will not be the ones holding your network back with previous encryption protocols
Target Wake Time (TWT) helps reduce battery consumption for connected devices by communicating with them and deciding when and how often the device requires data transfers.
TWT increases the device’s sleep time, therefore cleverly conserving energy and helping save battery life.
Firmware upgrades can be a pain, but with the DIR-X1860, they are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won’t even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X1860’s Dual Image functionality saves a recovery image as a backup before an upgrade. So, in the unlikely event an upgrade fails, the system has your pre-existing configuration to fall back on.
Your neighbours’ Wi-Fi could be interfering with your wireless signals and slowing things down.
Wi-Fi 6 puts an end to the Wi-Fi strife with BSS Colouring Technology. It makes transmissions more unique by ‘colouring’ them with their own unique code.
The result? Devices can decide whether to transmit signals or ignore them, based on their “colour”.
Get less interference, less Wi-Fi slowdowns and more range.
The DIR-X1860’s VPN Wizard lets you configure LAN-to-LAN and remote access VPN connections while its built-in passthrough feature also allows any devices connected to the Router to establish outbound VPN connections.
Tired of Internet speeds that don’t live up to your ISP’s claims? The DIR-X1860’s integrated Internet Speed Test lets you measure the true speed of your Router-to-ISP connection with the D-Link Wi-Fi app.
Turn on/off your guest Wi-Fi, ask for your guest Wi-Fi credentials, reboot your Router or update your firmware. Do it ALL hands-free using voice commands.
Just speak the words of command to your Google Assistant or Alexa, and the Router bends your smart home Wi-Fi to your will (without you having to lift a finger). Perfect for when you’ve got your hands full entertaining guests or just want to wow them with your smart Wi-Fi.
Download the free D-Link Wi-Fi app for super simple setup and ongoing management. Set parental controls based on your family’s online needs, access your Wi-Fi settings and more, directly from your smartphone or tablet.
