D-Link has unveiled its DWA-F18 VR Air Bridge, a wireless dongle designed specifically for Meta Quest 2 in an exclusive partnership with Meta. The DWA-F18 VR Air Bridge provides high-performance wireless links between Meta Quest 2 and PCs/laptops, eliminating cable clutter to provide enhanced and safer VR gaming experiences.
“While connecting Meta Quest 2 through a PC/laptop will significantly boost performance and graphic quality, most gamers are connected via the home Wi-Fi router or a dedicated gaming router. Many home Wi-Fi router connections can be unstable and are likely affected by other connected home Wi-Fi devices. Gaming routers can be significantly higher in cost, more time consuming to set up, and definitely not tuned for optimized Meta Quest 2 connectivity,” explained CJ Chang, CEO of D-Link Corporation.
The DWA-F18 VR Air Bridge is embedded with D-Link’s advanced Wi-Fi 6 firmware and Meta’s proprietary VR algorithms to bring low-latency wireless connectivity and improved Wi-Fi efficiency. Furthermore, the DWA-F18 features a compact design with simple installation and WPA3 Wi-Fi protection to let gamers experience safer, unrestricted, and fully-immersive VR adventures in the Metaverse.
“After joining the Metaverse Standards Forum in July, we aim to be a pioneer in Metaverse development. This exclusive partnership with Meta not only validates our innovation, but also affirms that D-Link is the ideal partner to combine technology, security, and quality. In anticipation of growing Metaverse trends, D-Link will continue to develop user-friendly and cost-effective Metaverse products and services to optimize consumer VR experiences,” said CJ Chang.
