What Wifi 6(6E) router to buy.


Recommended Posts

What Wifi 6(6E) router to buy. Wifi 7 routers is in early life and all of them are quite expensive. Neiter do I need it https://www.tomshardware.com/news/wi-fi-7-faq


So, yes, Wi-Fi 7 is here, but we highly suggest that you "sit on the sidelines until at least 2024" when the market is expected to start fully embracing the standard.


I have an Asus RT-AC3200 I want to replace it with a new router. 


ASUS ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000 Tri-band WiFi 6E - $528.31 USD (Wifi 6E)


ASUS GT-AX11000 Pro - Wireless router Wi-Fi 6 - $497.40 USD (Wifi 6)
https://www.proshop.no/Ruter/ASUS-GT-AX11000-Pro-Wireless-router-Wi-Fi-6/3118587 (this one have 10 GigE).


Asus ROG Rapture GT-AX11000 Router - $410.70 USD (Wifi 6)


This is on the used market same as above... Asus ROG GT-AX11000 Wifi 6 Router - $293.56 USD - Ordinary retail price $410.70 USD (Wifi 6)

This one is on sale here home on retail right now at 50% off. TP-Link Archer GX90 Router $183.38 USD with the 50% discount (Wifi 6)

I have always used Asus routers. Due their ability for Merlin custom firmware and ok'ish support lifespan.

Other options... ASUS RT-AXE7800 Router - $330.16 USD - (Wifi 6E)


Nighthawk AXE7800 WiFi Router (RAXE300) - $412.72 USD (Wifi 6E)



Long support life, good wifi range and possibilities for custom firmware is preferred.


Pleasee come with advices and pros and cons for the posted models. Thanks

I would skip a consumer 6E router and get a Ruckus R650 or something similar. I've had a few Asus ROG wireless routers until I went with Ruckus. Now I don't have any down time when it comes to wireless. Unless you really need 6E, it's just not worth it.
