D-Link has announced its new line of Wi-Fi 6 routers and mesh routers in advance of CES and was showing them off at CES Unveiled. We took a look at the DIR-5460 (pictured above) and almost confused it with a large drone. D-Link claims it will support Wi-Fi 6, WPA3 encryption, BSS coloring, integration with Alexa, Google Assistant and IFTTT as well as support through the D-Link Wi-Fi app. It will debut in Q1 2020 at an MSRP of $279.99.

D-Link also had their mesh Wi-Fi routers on display which will help you roll out coverage throughout your house without fishing CAT-5/6 cables to where you want the access points to go. While I personally prefer fishing the cables, I can see the value in a plug and play operation. The COVR-1900 is pictured to the right and will be available in Q1 2020 at an MSRP of $119.99. It should carry all of the same features as the DIR-5460 except for WiFi 6.

While the DIR-5460 is at the top of its family’s price point, there’s a host of additional Wi-Fi 6 routers launching with it ranging from $119.99 to $279.99 as listed below:

  • Smart AX1500 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X1560-US), Q1 2020, $119.99
  • Smart AX1800 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X1870-US), Q2 2020, $139.99
  • Smart AX2400 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X2460-US), Q3 2020, $159.99
  • Smart AX5400 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router (DIR-X5460-US), Q1 2020, $279.99
