In an age of mass remote working and an increased need for reliable home Wi-Fi connection across Europe, D-Link’s EXO AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router is engineered to withstand the most bandwidth-demanding environments and applications. These include cloud-based applications, video conferencing, Ultra-HD 4K/8K video streaming and a growing number of smart IoT devices.  

As families spend more time inside and online, the EXO AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router comes with a selection of smart security features to monitor and control children’s internet usage. Features such as profile-based parental control gives parents full visibility and control of when specific devices have access to the Internet.

Providing combined wireless speeds of up to 5,400 Mbps and supporting that latest 802.11ax wireless standard, this router delivers fast wireless connectivity that spans an impressive range. Its built-in Power Amplifiers and beamforming features extend the reach of an existing network and direct the signals to exactly where they need to go.

The new OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access) and BSS Coloring technology boosts not only network capacity but also range and speed by improving overall network efficiency. Its Target Wake Time (TWT) feature schedules transmissions for connected devices efficiently, meaning they know when to be ready for data, and when to take a break, increasing your devices battery life.

What’s more, the DIR-X5460 supports voice assistant capabilities - allowing users to enable or disable Wi-Fi access, check log-in credentials or reboot the system via voice-enabled smart speakers, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. 

Easy to set up, users can access how-to guides to install their new router via D-Link’s dedicated app. Once installed, there are many management tools and parental control features that allow users to tailor network access enabling safer internet connectivity.
