Apart from Huawei, TP-Link is also offering its WiFi 6 routers for less than RM300 during the upcoming 7.7 mid-year super sale. WiFi 6 aka 802.11ax offers wider bandwidth and higher capacity to support more wireless devices at the same time.

The TP-Link Archer AX50 WiFi 6 router has a theoretical maximum transfer speed of up to 3000Mbps with 2402Mbps on 5GHz and 574Mbps on 2.4GHz bands. It supports OFDMA and MU-MIMO, and according to the product page, it can support up to 256 devices.
The AX50 is powered by Intel’s Home WiFi WAV654 chipset that claims to provide the best pairing with Intel WiFi 6 Gig+ PCs and laptops. The router can be managed via TP-Link’s Tether app and it also supports Amazon Alexa integration.
