Hot on the heels of last week's COVR-X1870 mesh networking system, D-Link is dropping a new Wi-Fi 6 router this week.

New this week is the EXO AX5400 DIR-X5460. This is a dual-band AX5400-class router which means it can deliver speeds of up to 600Mbps and 4,800Mbps on its 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks respectively.

The higher transfer speeds are much welcomed but what's really critical about Wi-Fi 6 is its support for more connected devices through a technology known as OFDMA (orthogonal frequency-division multiple access). This is a far more important consideration bearing in mind the number of connected devices we have today.

In terms of ports, you have the usual single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. There's also one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port which can be useful for connecting to peripherals such as printers or storage devices.

The EXO AX5400 DIR-X5460 also works with the D-Link Wi-Fi app so you can manage and monitor the router remotely. The app is available for free for Android and iOS devices.


Availability and pricing

The D-Link EXO AX5400 DIR-X5460 router is available now and it's priced at S$259, which makes it one of the more affordable routers in its class.

What's more, from now until the end of February, you can get it at a special price of S$188.

Readers can find the D-Link EXO AX5400 DIR-X5460 router on the D-Link Flagship Store on Lazada, the D-Link Official Store on Shopee, Hachi.tech, and all major retail stores.
