With the majority of us still working from home, ensuring we have a usable connection to the internet becomes more important.

To help workers from home stay connected, Linksys is announcing two new E-series routers today. These are the company's line of affordable routers.

First up is the E5600, a dual-band AC1200 Wi-Fi 5 router (802.11ac) that's powered by a 880MHz dual-core processor and capable of delivering speeds of up to 300Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 866Mbps on its 5GHz network.

In terms of ports, it features a single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.

Best of all, it costs just S$79 and is available now from Challenger and authorised resellers.

For more demanding users, Linksys has also announced a Wi-Fi 6 router (802.11ax) called the E7350.

The E7350 is a dual-band AX1800 router that's also powered by a 880MHz dual-core processor and delivers speeds of up to 600Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 1,200Mbps on its 5GHz network.

Like the E5600, the E7350 will come with the usual single Gigabit Ethernet WAN port and four Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports.

The Linksys E7350 will be coming later this year in Q4 2020. We will update this article once we have precise local availability and pricing details.
