D-Link Introduces EXO AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Router

D-Link this week made available its groundbreaking EXO AX5400 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (DIR-X5460) with ultra-fast speeds and efficient performance benefits of WiFi 6 protocol. The AX5400 Router is the latest model in D-Link's trio of best-in-class WiFi 6 routers developed for superior coverage, increased capacity, reduced network congestion, and improved device battery life in device-dense homes. As multi-tasking households seek uninterrupted coverage for smooth media streaming, video chats, and more, the DIR-X5460 has the performance needed for smart connected homes.
"The future of WiFi is here. With the current influx of digital demands as households increasingly work and learn online, many require a new premium router to handle the network strain," said Raman Bridwell, vice president, products and services at D-Link Systems. "Our new DIR-X5460 WiFi 6 Router is poised to overcome frustrating lag and buffer, replacing it with high-grade network efficiencies to meet simultaneous bandwidth-heavy activities like 4K/8K streaming or online classwork."

Dominant WiFi 6 Dual-Band Functionality Complemented By Durable Components

D-Link's AX5400 Router takes advantage of WiFi 6 standards for stellar dual-band performance up to 90% faster at 2.4 GHz band and 176% faster at the 5 GHz than previous generation WiFi. It features up to 4X greater capacity than Wireless-AC for ultra-efficient support of Ultra 4K video streams, FPS online gaming, and large file downloads, and other emerging smart home activities.

Outfitted with prosumer-grade parts, the AX5400 Router is engineered to withstand heavy bandwidth processing. Built-in high powered amplifiers with a 160 MHz channel capacity ensure exceptional data throughput and the fastest theoretical speeds possible.

Yup DLink is not known for keeping their firmwares up to date and plugging security holes.

And security is very important when your router protects your home network, I wouldn't use any of their routers even if you gave it to me for free.

Asus and specifically Merlin firmware for the win!
