Not a bad price, but, anyone who hasn't jumped on the WiFi 6 bandwagon might as well go for WiFi 6e instead.

I have a couple of Huawei AX3 Pro Quad-core WiFi 6 Routers ... One in the living room mainfloor at the back of house and one in a bedroom on the second floor at the front of the house. They replaced the pair of D-Link DIR-859 that I had in the same spots.

So much better connection and very stable.

At $100 a pop ... Way better than TP-Link.

It's not officially sold or supported in Canada, what if they die? You're out $100 a pop.

TP-Link has excellent customer service and I had to RMA one of my routers, smooth and easy. My router was EOL so they replaced with newer version ,which is also now EOL lol but at least it's faster.

Picked up off of Banggood. Waited a month for them.

Interface was in simplified Chinese but using Google Chrome it would translate to English which made setup a breeze.

Amazing coverage. No complaints.

Router is something I prefer having local support and warranty for, the internet is one of the most important service in the house, aside from water and electricity.

What makes this a Wifi 6 router? Trying to find some differentiators of this unit come to compare AC1750 or AC1900 routers (other than speed). If speed is slower, but offer additional functionality / stability / security, then maybe it's worth going to this unit.

+1, as the so-called wifi6 speeds are slower than that of the other AC routers

Which routers for under $90 do you recommend instead of this one? I still am using an asus rt-n66U.

It isn't all about bandwidth (but even so, potentially that an AX1500 will be consistently "faster" than an AC1700)

And it's called an wifi6 because it uses IEEE 802.11ax standards (at some level). I haven't checked this model in particular, but having like OFMDA and stuff like that.

I'm still running my RT-N66u trouble free in my 2-storey home. Will wait for wifi6e.

I was told the TP-Link Archer C7 v5 (AC1750) is a good candidate (has 3rd party firmware support, easy firmware recovery via TFTP)...but only has one USB 2.0 port.

None under $90...
I was comparing to my R7000 and AC86U to see if I should jump into wifi6, but it's not an upgrade.

Yeah, I've read the 802.11ax specs...that's why I'm wondering from a device level, what is this model offering that makes it wifi 6 (which may also be a functional differentiator) when compare with other AC routers.

OFMDA is supposed to be quite a big deal...
