D-Link announced at CES 2020 in Las Vegas a number of new routers with the newest Wi-Fi 6 technology right out the gate.
Among them is the COVR X1870, a two-piece mesh router system that's slated to arrive later this year at $269. The system supports 802.11ax, or Wi-Fi 6 - the newest, fastest version of Wi-Fi. As its name suggests, you'll be able to enjoy top speeds of up to 574 megabits per second on the 2.4GHz band and 1,201 megabits on the 5GHz band. The dual-band router features a total of four antennas - two for the 2.4GHz band and two for the 5GHz band - so you'll be able to take advantage of basic, 2x2 MU-MIMO connections that use both antennas at once in order to transmit data more efficiently to devices with multiple antennas of their own.
D-Link also announced the Smart AX5400 Mesh WiFi 6 Router. The name points to 5.4Gbps of total wireless bandwidth on top of its four Ethernet jacks and two USB ports. It shows up in the first quarter of the year for a hefty $280.
Less demanding users can also spring for AX1500 ($120), AX1800 ($140) and AX2400 ($160) variants that will respectively show in the first, second and third quarters of the year. They all feature 1 Gigabit WAN and 4 Gigabit LAN ports, but lack USB ports.
You can also expect the COVR family of mesh routers to get a $270 AX1800 Whole Home Mesh System in the second quarter of the year alongside a $130 AX1800 range extender that can fill in gaps.
