Upgrading to WIFI 6?
Upgrading to WIFI 6? I am upgrading my router. The question is Wifi 5 (AC) or Wifi 6 (AX) ? Wifi 6 gives you longer range and speeds up to almost 2 times faster than Wifi 5. The new Mesh options make it even better but its expensive. I’ve already upgraded my desktop with a Wifi 6 card for around $40.00 and my laptop for about $60.00. You can easily install them yourself or you can have a professional like Kinetisys install them. Also a good choice would be to buy your own modem if you’re going to buy a new Wifi 6 router. AT&T rents you a Modem/Router for $10.00 a month. You can buy your own modem for $100-$60. So, you can pay for your modem in less than a year saving rental costs. And typically, AT&T has a Modem/Router. If you buy a Wifi 6 router, you will have 2 routers and if you don’t know what you’re doing, it can cause you a lot of problems. Longer range, almost 1GB speed. I am going to upgrade to the WIFI 6 mesh for me. I know my IPAD and phones won’t take advantage of the WIFI 6 but everyone’s tablets and phones will be coming out later with the upgrade. See the link below for a more technical review.
