D-Link DIR-X3260

details: EXO AX AX3200 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router
hardware type: Mesh Wireless
date added: 2021-09-04
updated: 2021-09-23
Experience up to AX3200 speeds while 1024-QAM boosts throughput to devices by up to 25% and 80 MHz contiguous channel width gives even more bandwidth. Up to 8 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-X3260 uses Wi-Fi 6's cutting-edge 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-X3260 leverages OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better efficiency of upstream AND downstream transmissions, unlike previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only operate in downstream transmissions. This combination increases capacity, coverage and performance especially in ultra-high-density environments.

High-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology allow the DIR-X3260 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.

One of the biggest concerns with Wi-Fi networks and connected devices is privacy. The latest WPA3 encryption is the most advanced standard available and begins a new era of wireless encryption, ensuring greater privacy throughout users' networks and devices.

Firmware upgrades can be a pain, but with the DIR-X3260, they are completely automated. Upgrades are so smooth, you won't even notice them. On top of that, the DIR-X3260'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.

Your neighbors' Wi-Fi could be interfering with your wireless signals and slowing things down. Wi-Fi 6 puts an end to the Wi-Fi strife with BSS Colouring technology. It makes transmissions more unique by 'colouring' them with their own unique code. The result? Devices can decide whether to transmit signals or ignore them, based on their "colour". Get less interference, less Wi-Fi slowdowns and more range.

Download the free D-Link Wi-Fi app for super simple setup and ongoing management. Set parental controls based on your family’s online needs, access your Wi-Fi settings and more, directly from your smartphone or tablet.
