  • 4 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and 1 Gigabit Ethernet WAN port provide optional wired connectivity
  • Intelligent Quality of Service (QoS) prioritises network traffic to minimise the impact of busy bandwidth
  • Backwards compatibility ensures support for previous Wi-Fi standards and all Wi-Fi devices
  • Increased battery life of connected devices with Target Wake Time technology
  • Supports WPA3™ — the latest WiFi security for more protection
  • Voice Control for an even easier home Wi-Fi networking experience
  • Works with the D-Link Wi-Fi App for easy setup and enhanced parental controls

Next-generation speeds

X3200 speeds are complemented by 1024-QAM that increases throughput on devices by as much as 25%, and 160 MHz of contiguous channel width for additional bandwidth. It provides up to six simultaneous streams for faster, more enjoyable 4K streaming, online gaming, and more. If you require faster wired connectivity, it has four Gigabit LAN ports and one Gigabit WAN port.

Less Congestion with OFDMA

The DIR-X3260 uses the innovative Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology of Wi-Fi 6. It transmits together multiple small data packets so they don’t have to queue up again. Perfect for smart homes filled with bandwidth-hungry IoT devices.

MU-MIMO

MU-MIMO technology allows data to be distributed to multiple devices simultaneously. With Wi-Fi 6 technology, the DIR-X3260 uses OFDMA and MU-MIMO for better upstream and downstream transmission efficiency, as opposed to previous Wi-Fi 5 technology where MU-MIMO could only be used for downstream transmission. Combining these technologies significantly increases capacity, coverage, and performance, especially in ultrahigh-density environments.

Extended coverage, reduced interference

Thanks to high-gain antennas, built-in power amplifiers and beamforming technology, the DIR-X3260 can maximize the range and speed of your Wi-Fi signal and give you better Wi-Fi experience. Similarly, a long OFDM symbol offers even greater Wi-Fi range, especially outside the home.

Final Thoughts

Featuring high-end performance paired with innovative features, the D-Link DIR-X3260 router comes at an affordable price. 

By utilizing MU-MIMO and mesh-extenders, you will access the same high speeds from anywhere in the house. There is reliable coverage across multiple high-speed smart devices connected simultaneously. 

There is no compromise on user-friendliness. With an easy-to-use smartphone app, you can create parental controls, manage settings, and control security access. 

D-Link has once again shown why they’re the leader in home internet devices. For smart homes in the modern age, the AX3200 router is a must-have.
