If you want to speed up your laptop’s Wi-Fi and have a USB 3.0 port spare, the launch of D-link’s new DWA-X1850, the world’s first Wi-Fi 6 USB 3.2 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) adapter might interest you.

The new DWA-X1850 AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 USB 3.0 adapter is engineered to power the increasing number of high-bandwidth devices and support high-intensity data traffic for remote workers, students and families.

Featuring the latest 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 technology, it delivers smooth, reliable combined speeds up to AX1800 (574Mbps 2.4Ghz / 1200Mbps 5Ghz), ideal for large file transfers, online learning lessons and gaming.

The new adapter also features:

  • 128-bit WPA3 encryption giving customers added peace of mind over network and device protection.
  • Multi-User or MU-MIMO technology for better efficiency of upstream and downstream transmission
  • Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology (where small data packets destined for multiple devices are transmitted together and never have to queue up again).

Combined, these advancements ensure that multiple devices receive high-bandwidth Wi-Fi at the same time to distribute data more efficiently over a wider area, and providing you with faster Wi-Fi 6 speeds.

With Windows drivers already preloaded on the Adapter, installation is simple and your older, slower laptop or desktop computer can immediately enjoy the speed and range benefits that Wi-Fi 6 provides. The slim and compact design means the dongle can also easily be carried around when out and about.

The DWA-X1850 is available now from www.dlink.com.au for $149.95 as well as JB Hi-Fi and other online retailers.
