The one thing that I have come to appreciate greatly during the lockdown is my Wi-Fi. I can stream all the shows I want in 4K, I can download all the massive AAA games without waiting for an eternity, I can watch all the YouTube I want and I can attend my online classes
Now I can certainly do all this with my mobile data, but then I have a 1.5GB daily limit. And when you are bored at home, you can chew through that pretty quickly. But the thing is, I am not the only one stuck at home, so is the rest of my family. And they want to binge-watch their favourite shows too. And with so many devices connected to the same network, speed definitely takes a hit.
And Wi-Fi 6 has been designed to fix exactly that. Wi-Fi 6 brings the speed upgrades you would expect it to: It supposed to be 30% faster than Wi-Fi 5 in early world usage. But where Wi-Fi 6 shines is in environments with numerous devices. It is designed to allow routers to communicate more efficiently with more users and devices at once. They can do this by packing more information into each signal they send. Wi-Fi 6 access points can also divide a signal between multiple devices, thus serving them all with a single transmission.
So, if you are looking to upgrade your Wi-Fi setup, you should probably get a Wi-Fi 6 router. And it could be D-Link’s new EXO AX5400 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X5460). It can support speeds up to 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 4800Mbps on 5GHz. It has new connectivity features like OFDMA, 1024-QAM, and multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO).
It can support up to 6 continuous streams of 4K content. It has 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 2 USB 2.0/3.0 ports. D-Link is selling this model online for $249.99. If that is too much for you, D-Link has also released an entry-level variant: the EXO AX1500 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X5160), which retails for $99.99.
