D-Link A/NZ launches new AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Mesh Range Extender
D-Link A/NZ has launched the DAP-X1860, a portable plug-in AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Mesh Range Extender that easily expands your existing Wi-Fi network and rids your home of frustrating Wi-Fi dead zones once and for all, whilst enhancing device performance by utilising the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology.
The ultimate in flexibility, the DAP-X1860 gives you choices on where to position your new Range Extender for maximum performance gains. With its integrated wall-plug design, you can simply insert it into a standard power socket, then use the built-in Smart Signal Indicator, which allows you to see where the strongest and weakest Wi-Fi signal spots are around your home, to identify the best possible location to place the Extender for optimal network performance.
The DAP-X1860, built with D-Link Wi-Fi Mesh technology, easily pairs with a compatible D-Link Wi-Fi Mesh Router to create a seamless whole-home Mesh network built on industry-standard Mesh technology. This Mesh network cleverly shares the same name as your existing network and allows you to enjoy a seamless Wi-Fi experience throughout your entire home. It’s safe and practical too as it utilises the latest WPA3™ Wi-Fi security for high grade protection.
The DAP-X1860 also supports the 802.11k/v standard for Mesh Smart Roaming so you can use it together with other compatible Routers and client devices, making your life even easier by automatically connecting your devices to the strongest Wi-Fi signal as you roam around your home. It also sports a Gigabit Ethernet Port supporting wired Mesh backhaul for even greater flexibility.
The DAP-X1860 provides you with next-generation Dual-Band 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) Wi-Fi with up to 1800Mbps, with 600Mbps on the 2.4GHz band and 1200Mbps on the 5GHz band, and it uses advanced features such as MU-MIMO technology to ensure multiple devices get the highest speeds and bandwidth they need at the same time.
Finally, setup is a breeze with the free D-Link Wi-Fi app which also allows you to manage the DAP-X1860 directly from your smartphone or tablet. You can also set the DAP-X1860 up with D-Link’s One-Touch Setup with a simple push of the WPS button whenused in conjunction with a compatible router.
