Experience up to AX1800 speeds (1200 Mbps on the 5 GHz band and 574 Mbps on the 2.4 GHz band) while 1024-QAM boosts throughput to devices by up to 25% and 80 MHz contiguous channel width gives even more bandwidth. Up to 4 simultaneous streams let you enjoy faster, more enjoyable 4K streaming, online gaming and more, and should you require them - 4 Gigabit LAN ports and 1 Gigabit WAN port give you faster wired connectivity whenever you wish.
The DIR-X1860 uses Wi-Fi 6's 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.
MU-MIMO technology helps distribute the flow of data to multiple devices simultaneously. With Wi-Fi 6 technology the DIR-X1860 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.
High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X1860 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.
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 extending the battery life of client devices and optimizing spectrum utilization.
With the DIR-X1860, the updates are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won't even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X1860'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.
The DIR-X1860'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.
