Wi-Fi 6 routers are starting to get cheaper

Netgear announces one of the cheapest routers so far with support for Wi-Fi 6. Its new entry-level router, the Nighthawk AX4, offers support for Wi-Fi 6, four Gigabit Ethernet ports and up to 3Gbps data transmission. At $ 199, it's by no means a cheap router but it's cheaper for hundreds of dollars than most Wi-Fi routers 6 on the market so far.

The support of the router for Wi-Fi 6 It is really what makes it stand out. Wi-Fi 6 is the latest generation of the Wi-Fi standard and offers more efficient communication with devices, which should lead to better performance in busy networks. Routers and Wi-Fi devices 6 have begun to appear in recent months, but most have been quite advanced because it is a new technology. They will be more affordable routers like the AX4 that really help the new standard begin to spread.

TP-Link has also announced some more affordable Wi-Fi 6 routers, but those models have not yet hit the market. The Netgear AX4, on the other hand, will be available this month.

Apart from its inclusion of Wi-Fi 6, there is nothing particularly striking here. The AX4 is a basic router that must be able to handle the regular network needs in a home. Netgear says it includes games and video streaming in 4K. But the router does not offer near the bandwidth available on the latest Netgear Wi-Fi 6 router, the Nighthawk Tri-Band AX12, which includes an additional wireless radio and 10.8 Gbps of total data transmission.
