TP-Link has entered the Wi-Fi 6 fray with its new Archer AX6000 router.

Like other AX6000-class routers, the Archer AX6000 is a dual-band router that serves up speeds of up to 1,148Mbps on its 2.4GHz network and 4,804Mbps on its 5GHz network.

However, these speeds are only attainable with Wi-Fi 6 compatible clients - of which they are none right now.

Which means if you want a taste of these blistering speeds, you'll need two of these routers setup in a bridge mode.

Anyway, back to the Archer AX6000. It has a single 2.5Gbps WAN port and eight Gigabit LAN ports. It also has two USB 3.0 ports - one USB-A and another USB-C. This makes it one of the first routers to feature a USB-C port.

The Archer AX6000 also comes with built-in antivirus, the usual parental control options, and QoS. It also works with Alexa and IFTTT so you can use it to manage your smart devices.

But perhaps most crucial of all, the TP-Link Archer AX6000 is priced at S$479, which makes it a fair bit more affordable than the ASUS RT-AX88U (S$599) and the Netgear RAX80 (S$659). It is available in stores now.
