D-Link EXO AX AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router DIR-X5460 Review

The D-Link DIR-X5460 EXO AX AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router is essentially the same as the DIR-X1560 EXO AX AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router, with a few more features. And this is especially true in terms of physical size and performance.

At their heart, though, the two products are virtually identical, including the outdated web interface, the limited feature set, and the familiar strange sense that it might need some TLC (Test Driven Development). The DIR-X5460 doesn’t provide anything particularly noteworthy.

D-Link DIR-X5460 EXO AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Router with Gigabit Ethernet Ports, MU-MIMO, Band Steering, 1024 QAM, OFDMA, WPA3, Firewall, Parental Controls and Speedtest. Works with Alexa/Gooogle Assistant.

However, the router possesses sufficient capabilities to merit consideration for my recommendation, but with some reservations.

To summarise, if you’re searching for a simple Wi-Fi 6 router for a small or medium-sized business that only requires a single broadcaster, this newest D-Link model will do the trick. You might even call it a decent deal considering its low price of around $250 – as long as you don’t rely on it being mesh-ready, which isn’t guaranteed.

Consider alternative AX5400 broadcasters on our list of best Wi-Fi 6 routers instead if you want to get the most of your network work, whether it means getting the greatest performance, adding more features, or adding a little excitement.

The D-Link DIR-X5460 is an AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 router that uses the AX5400 chipset. In terms of hardware, it is comparable to the Asus RT-AX82U, the Netgear RAX50, and the Netgear XR1000 routers. When it comes to residential Wi-Fi, the software (also known as firmware) is always the most important factor to consider. The D-Link, on the other hand, is a bit of a drag on this front.
