AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Router
Why do you need Wi-Fi 6 (11ax)? Because your smart home isn’t reaching the limits of its potential. The most common Wi-Fi standards in use today simply aren’t built to support multiple personal devices and smart home gadgets running simultaneously 24/7. The DIR-X1860 Smart AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Router brings next-generation Wi-Fi technology into your home, giving you the quantum leap in capacity and bandwidth to support more devices at once. By combining high-speed 802.11ax Wi-Fi with dual-band technology and Gigabit Ethernet ports, the DIR-X1860 provides a seamless networking experience with a high degree of convenience and flexibility.
Mind-Blowing Speed and Range
The DIR-X1860 Smart AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Router brings a host of new technologies to create the best wireless networking experience to date. Unlike the existing 11ac wireless standard that operates only in the 5 GHz range, Wi-Fi 6 fully utilizes both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands. It also comes with 1024 QAM to boost throughput to devices by up to 25%, and 80 MHz contiguous channel width for even more bandwidth. All this adds up to fast combined speeds of up to 1800 Mbps (1,200 Mbps + 574 Mbps). Built-in Power Amplifiers and beamforming extend the reach of your Wi-Fi and direct the signals where they need to go. Wi-Fi 6 lets you unleash all that lightning-fast Wi-Fi over larger areas - from bedroom and bathroom all the way to the basement and the backyard.
Made for Smart Home
The DIR-X1860 upgrades your network to the latest Wi-Fi 6 wireless technology which supports dual-band Wi-Fi with up to 4 simultaneous streams, handling all the connected devices you throw at it at the same time with ease. Enjoy simultaneous throughput to multiple devices for seamless high definition streaming media, VR gaming, and cloud storage. In addition, the DIR-X1860 future proofs your Internet as it utilizes a 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet WAN port. The built-in Quality of Service (QoS) engine allows you to prioritize traffic to your preferred client, ensuring that your favorite devices are receiving optimal bandwidth.
If you thought Wi-Fi using MU-MIMO was cool, wait till you meet Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA). It’s a signature technology in Wi-Fi 6 that splits a channel into four sub-channels. The result? Signals from multiple devices get transmitted together in one shot and never have to queue up again. Get an incredible 4x boost in your bandwidth capacity - perfect for smart homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices threatening to devour your Wi-Fi capacity.
Unprecedented Network Efficiency
There’s nothing worse than inefficient Wi-Fi putting a damper on your network experience. In environments with multiple routers or access points, BSS Coloring makes transmissions more unique by ‘coloring’ them with their own unique code resulting in less interference and more range in congested Wi-Fi environments. Target Wake Time (TWT) efficiently schedules transmissions for client devices, meaning they know when to be ready for data, and when to take a break, increasing your devices battery life. With the DIR-X1560, give your smart home the network efficiency boost it deserves.
Easy to Setup and Manage
Sharing your Internet connection doesn’t have to be a complicated process; just download the free D-Link Wi-Fi app for your compatible iOS or Android device and follow the on-screen step-by-step instructions to set up your DIR-X1560. You also have the option to use a web browser to access the setup wizard and manage your router. In addition, access control features allow you to restrict access to your network, giving you greater control over network users. The DIR-X1560 even integrates voice assistant compatibility for Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant so you can control your network with voice commands.
Always Up-to-Date with the Latest Features
Tired of having to check the website or going to the DIR-X1560’s UI manually every so often to check for the latest firmware updates? The DIR-X1560 will automatically check daily for updates to make sure that the device always has the latest features with the most secure firmware and installs the update silently in the background. For an extra peace of mind, in the event of failure during an automatic or manual firmware upgrade, the router will store a backup system image in the memory beforehand.
