    Product Description

    Wi-Fi 6 technology has redefined home WiFi. Experience faster speeds, higher capacity, and reduced congestion overall compared to the previous AC Wi-Fi 5 standard. The Archer AX20 dual-band router reaches speeds of up to 1.8 Gbps, for a buffer-free 4K/HD streaming and gaming experience. With more and more devices in your home, your current router will likely begin to slow down. Archer AX20 uses Beamforming technology and 4 antennas to adapt and focus WiFi signals to your devices far away for stronger, more reliable coverage. Using Target Wake Time (TWT), your router talks to your devices and negotiates when and how frequently they should transfer data to increase device sleep time, extending battery life. The Archer AX20 works with all previous WiFi standards and all WiFi-enabled devices. Setup in minutes with Tether app.
