    Top comment

    "I separated all my wifi channels from 2.4ghz, 5ghz, 5ghz high and 6ghz. Through speed tests, im getting 1200 to 1300 mb/s speed tests. ...The Wifi coverage is great even setting the transmit oower to only 25% for 5Ghz and 6Ghz, and 12% for 2.4Ghz. Awesome gateway so far, this is definitely the one to get, still playing around with settings and learning this one but it is definitely a beast and top of the line and DEPENDABLE. "

  3. ASUS - BE96U Tri-Band Wifi 7 Router - Black - Front_Zoom
    Top comment

    "Couldn’t test WiFi 7, but got WiFi 6E, it couldn’t connect to 5ghz 160mhz wide channels with a device, it could only do that at 6ghz. ...Now, I have done a work around for the 5Ghz issue. I turned off, for now, the signal at the mesh unit and run a second mesh unit in the adjacent room only emitting the 5Ghz signal using a RT-AX86U Pro for that. "

    Product Description

    The RT-BE96U’s dual 10 Gbps ports make it a great choice for servers or NAS devices. These are more convenient than simply combining multiple gigabit Ethernet ports, and they help increase your available bandwidth to avoid data bottlenecks throughout your whole network. Users are also empowered to leverage multiple high-speed internet service providers.

    "My S23ultra phone works just fine, but, tends to gravitate toward 5Ghz and sometimes 2.4Ghz. When on Wifi6E, which it will do up close, latency is under 20ms and speeds are over 900Mbps down and over 40 up. 5GHZ is just under 900Mbps and over 40 up and 2.4Ghz is around 140Mpbs and 40 up. ...There have been the occasional lapse to 5Ghz to my upstairs node, but it does go back to 6Ghz pretty quickly.

    "I appreciate the longer range of both the 5GHz and 6GHz channels to the point where I am sticking with the 6GHz more often than before and the 5GHz channel covers my entire house now. ...Over 2500 sqft and even at the furthest point in the house to the router, I still get full upload and download on 5GHz band. At this time, I dont have anything that will connect to the 6GHz band yet, so cannot say how well that works. "
