WiFi 6 works great for any device that can use it. Handles all older devices with ease. Range is absolutely amazing! You want this router, and Gamestop will get it to you fast!
Bandwidth is a lot better then some reviews claim online, very satisfied with how the internet runs with it and it works great with apex and my other games that I play.
This is the best thing I have ever purchased!! I work from home and my system would constantly disconnect. I was at a local store and decided to give it a shot. NO MORE DISCONNECTS!!! We are a family full of gamers and streaming. I am able to work while others are connected playing games and there are no problems at all!! I have even suggested the router to others within my company!!
Couldnt be more happier with this product. Looks great. Easy to setup. The range is great even with cement walls. It raches my back yard. Speeds are crazy fast...would recommend as i will pick up a 2nd one to take advantage of aimesh..
Wow!!! Sounds like a great buy all around (: Happy to hear this worked out so well for you and I appreciate you sharing your experience with this!
So far so good. I am not super techy, but was able to set this up via their app. I also don't game. My wife and I use it for mobile wifi and our TV streaming. Work awesome for both with excellent speed and signal strength
