The TP-Link Archer AX11000 is top of the line in its class with tri-band radios, fast Wi-Fi speeds, excellent range with a reliable signal and decent NAS performance if that takes your fancy. Overall, a premium flagship product with a premium price tag to match.
If you’re looking for a decent flagship spec mesh Wi-Fi kit, that comes with Wi-Fi 6E (AXE) out of the box with an excellent range at around 7500 ft² (696 m²), awesome performance with quad-band connectivity, supports 200 concurrent connected devices, looks great and just plain works with minimal configuration then the Orbi RBKE963 should make your shortlist, providing you're willing to pay for it.
The Nighthawk RAX120 is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 1GB of flash memory. It's a 12-stream dual-band router with four streams on the 2.4GHz band and eight streams on the 5GHz band that can reach maximum (theoretical) speeds of up to 1.2Gbps on the 2.4GHz band and up to 4.8Gbps on the 5GHz band.
Today's review sees one of my favourite products to review at the moment, in the form of Orbi's RBK753 mesh networking kit from NETGEAR. Featuring tri-band WiFi 6 connectivity, with a total throughput of 4200Mbps.
The TP-Link Archer AX50 is an AX3000 Wi-Fi 6 router using Intel’s Home Wi-Fi package and this is indeed a fantastic performer aimed at households wanting to upgrade to Wi-Fi 6 networking and have something better than their ISP-provided router.
If you’re looking for a decent spec mid-range mesh Wi-Fi kit, that comes with 5400 Mbps Wi-Fi 6 (AX) out of the box with an excellent range at around 7500 ft² (696 m²), awesome performance with tri-band connectivity, supports 75 concurrent connected devices, looks great on a shelf and just plain works with minimal configuration then the Orbi RBK763S should certainly make your shortlist.
The Netgear Nighthawk XR1000 pro gaming router is a feature-rich and performance-orientated router. With a decent triple-core SOC and radios, with strong & stable Wi-Fi 6 features like MU-MIMO, OFDMA, 160Mhz channel support, 1024 QAM, Beamforming, additional DFS channels and Smart Connect.
The Archer AX90 is one of the first routers from TP-Link that supports Whole Home OneMesh WiFi, so you can then pair it up with the RE505X Wi-Fi 6 Range Extender to create a whole-home mesh network.
The results speak for themselves. The AV2000 kit is the fastest AV2 powerline adapter we've seen on the channel, but not by much. The AV1300 results we're just 15Mbps slower, but with a single Gigabit port vs. the two Gigabit ports on the AV2000 kit, the AV2000 kit has an ace up its sleeve. Though this won't improve speeds (as Gigabit Ethernet is the limiting factor) but the ability to connect an additional device to the adapter is a positive.
If you're looking for a decently specced mesh Wi-Fi kit, that comes with Wi-Fi 6 (AX) out of the box that has excellent range, decent performance, looks great and just plain works with next to no configuration then the Deco X50 is certainly something you should consider.
