Our lives are basically inseparable from routers.
As an important network equipment connecting high-speed networks, the importance of routers is self-evident, in a few years, most of the routers used by every household are still the kind of Wi-Fi 5 and even Wi-Fi 4 routing with dozens of dollars, relatively few functions, and poor stability, and now with the popularity of Wi-Fi 6, more and more users have experienced high-speed network connections, but the update of technology sometimes means the rise in costs, and then affected by the chip, the current mainstream Wi-Fi 6 routers are basically in the range of 300-500 yuan, and even some high-end routes have soared to more than 1,000 yuan, I believe some people will have questions, why are the prices of these routers so expensive?
With the blessing of multi-stream aggregation, 4X4 antenna and 160MHz transmission bandwidth scheme, thousand-yuan products are more powerful in extreme wireless transmission, stronger processor performance can bring lower OFDMA transmission delay, some products provide better service performance experience through traffic identification and QoS guarantee mechanism, and many routers of this party committee are designed for high-real-time e-sports games, and will have built-in accelerators to bring the best experience to games.
Today, the author will take an inventory of those thousand-dollar routers loved by local tycoons!
01 Xiaomi AX9000
Xiaomi AX9000, as a 9000Mbps flagship tri-band router, is flagship in all aspects, including Qualcomm’s flagship SoC for Wi-Fi 6E Qualcomm IPQ8072, 1GB large memory, 2.5G network port. Of course, AX9000, as Xiaomi’s cross-era product, is not limited to these bright evolutions, under high configuration, it also has two new configurations: active cooling fan and USB 3.0 interface. It has a total of 12 antennas and three frequency bands, plus AIoT wireless, the total speed is as high as 9000Mbps, such a wireless configuration is not only at the top of Xiaomi routers, but also in the industry is a high-end flagship level.
High-bandwidth tri-band wireless means greater wireless capacity, less interference, and greater scalability on the Mesh for users. The AX9000 can utilize the 5.3G and 5.8G frequency bands to achieve virtually lossless wireless backhaul mesh network construction. For large families, even if the embedded line is not designed during the decoration, the network coverage of the home can be completed by using a strong wireless network.
As a 12-antenna router, Xiaomi AX9000 abandons the previous simple design in appearance, external antenna and circular body angular parting, very aggressive, and a large area of X-type gaming lighting effect blessing, placed at home will be very conspicuous. The exclusive game acceleration feature is perfect for gamers.
Although the initial price of this router is 999 yuan, the current price of 1299 is still worth buying.
02 Asus RT-AX86U
The Asus RT-AX86U continues the subsequent design of the generation of the RT-AC86U gaming router, bringing it into the high-performance Wi-Fi 6 world. Internally, the RT-AX86U uses Broadcom’s BCM4908 and BCM43684 chipsets along with 1GB of RAM and 256MB of flash memory to save its firmware and settings. The router is powered by a 1.8GHz quad-core processor. Its 802.11AX dual-band design can create 2.4 and 5GHz networks that can take advantage of the ultra-wide 160MHz data channel MU-MIMO and beamforming to compress as much data as possible into their transmission. Overall, for the AX5700 class, the RT-AX86U can move up to 861Mbps in its 2.4GHz band and up to 4.8Gbps in its 5GHz band.
On the back of the ASUS RT-AX86U are 1Gbps and 2.5Gbps multigigabit WAN input ports for use with the latest broadband modems. If a multigigabit connection is not used, it adds four dedicated Gigabit per second downstream Ethernet ports as well as an additional LAN port. This may have a total of five downstream ports, one more than most offered but three fewer than the eight LAN ports of TP-Link’s Archer AX6000. For speedsters, two network ports can be aggregated to achieve the highest speed output.
The Asus RT-AX86U is a powerful Wi-Fi 6 router that offers great speed and killer gaming features, as well as excellent customization options. With high-end performance and lifetime protection against intrusion and malware, it’s also a great choice for protecting your entire home network, providing long-term protection with no subscription fees, and a two-year warranty.
03 Huawei router H6
Huawei Routing H6 includes a parent route, one sub-route Pro Edition, and two sub-route Standard Editions. And all support Gigabit network ports. As a distributed router product, each Huawei route H6 female route can be connected to up to six sub-routes through a preset network cable, and the parent routes can also be cascaded to connect more sub-routes and achieve a wider range of coverage. A single sub-route can cover 1~2 rooms, and the sub-router Pro version is more suitable for use in the living room scene.
Not only that, Huawei’s small body size of the H6 contains a sufficient amount of design, the combination of software and hardware smart antenna technology can track and locate the signal source of smart devices, with high-performance external signal amplifiers, it can bring sufficient signal to every device in the home, coupled with Huawei’s self-developed Wi-Fi 6+ technology, support 160MHz ultra-large bandwidth and dynamic narrow bandwidth through the wall black technology, no longer have to worry about mobile phones and smart home devices disconnection.
With the blessing of Huawei’s router H6, Wi-Fi coverage of the whole house can be easily achieved, and the connection problem of smart devices can be easily solved, laying the foundation for the whole house intelligence.
04 Asus RT-AX92U
ASUS RT-AX92U adopts 2.4GHz/5GHz+5GHz 802.11ax three-band design, which can achieve a wireless transmission and reception rate of 6100Mbps, of which the 5GHz 802.11ac band bandwidth is up to 866Mbps, while the 2.4GHz 802.11n band rate is up to 400Mbps, and the 5GHz 802.11ax has a maximum speed of 4804Mbps.
The RT-AX92U is equipped with four high-gain external foldable antennas and its mesh networking function uses 802.11ax signals to backhaul between mesh nodes at high speed. The AiMesh AX6100 system can be set up or managed through the RT-AX92U’s web and APP interfaces, and can be synchronized to each route in the AiMesh system with only one setting.
In addition, through the AIMesh function, the Asus RT-AX92U can be updated with the latest firmware to support AiMesh, and other ASUS routers to form a mesh network, AiMesh compared to ordinary Mesh routers advantage is to retain the complete function of ASUS routers, and support many models of ASUS routers, and different models of routers can be mixed and matched, effectively reducing the purchase cost.
After reading these “local tyrant” routers, are you excited? But still have to warm reminder, the router still has to choose the right for yourself, according to the budget to choose is a more secure solution, how much do you like to buy in front of the screen router?
