TP-Link has introduced two new WiFi 6 routers that use tri-band technology, resulting in more bandwidth for multiple devices and less congestion. The Archer AXE5400, also known as the Archer AXE75, is a WiFi 6E router capable of delivering speeds of up to 5400Mbps. It’s a standalone router that gives users access to the new 6GHz band, increasing the number of WiFi devices the router can handle, and owners of phones and other devices using 6GHz Capability provides an alternative to the crowded 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies bands. However, it doesn’t have motorized antennas that can follow devices like the model the company showed at CES this year.
TP-Link states on the device’s official page that “[a]Accessing the 6GHz frequency brings more bandwidth, faster speeds and lower latency, opening up resources for future innovations like AR/VR, 8K streaming and more.” In addition, the device is protected by the latest WiFi security protocol called WPA3 , which is more secure than its predecessors and features USB 3.0 so it can be connected to an external drive.
In addition to the AX5400, TP-Link also introduced the Archer AX5400 Wi-Fi 6 Tri-Band Router or Archer AX75. This does not have access to the 6GHz band, but allows users to split demanding devices connected to the network to its two separate 5GHz bands for better performance.
Both the AXE75 and AX75 cost buyers $200 and are available now on Amazon.
