Connect More, Congest Less with OFDMA

The DIR-X5460 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.


Without OFDMA





MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously.
With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X5460 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.


Extended Coverage, Reduced Interference

High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X5460 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..



The Future of Wireless Encryption

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.




The Future of Wireless Encryption

Latest 128-bit encryption will replace previous industry-standard encryptions on Wi-Fi devices

Stronger Encryption Algorithm

Creates stronger and more unique encryption keys for each device

Enhanced Protection from Brute Force Attacks

Stronger protection for users against password guessing attempts

Individualised Data Encryption

Creates stronger and more unique encryption keys for each device

Forward Secrecy

Cannot use a cracked password to decrypt previously-intercepted traffic

Futureproof and Compatible

D-Link Routers will not be the ones holding your network back with previous encryption protocols



Conserve Energy, Save Battery Life

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.




Always Up-To-Date

Firmware upgrades can be a pain, but with the DIR-X5460, they are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won’t even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X5460’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.

BSS Colouring

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.







Internet Router Office

Virtual Private Networking
Your Way

The DIR-X5460’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.

True Internet Speeds Without the Guesswork

Tired of Internet speeds that don’t live up to your ISP’s claims? The DIR-X5460’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.

Simple Setup and Management

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.
