The Archer AX6000 is TP-Link’s first router with next-generation 802.11ax Wi-Fi technology.
It is a dual-band modem that can support speeds of up to 1,148Mbps on its 2.4GHz channel and up to 4,804Mbps on its 5GHz channel using the Wi-Fi 6 standard.
Wi-Fi 6 routers are now coming out from different companies. The TP-Link AX6000 comes at a PHP 19,500 market price and it is not that cheap for most consumers.
In this article, we will try to show all the features of the AX6000 and with that, you will know if this is the right one for you.
TP-Link ARCHER AX6000 Wi-Fi 6 Router
The TP-Link Archer AX6000 comes with eight high-gain antennas on a square-type form factor. It has the TP-Link logo on the center which also serves as LED status for determining connectivity.
On its front side, it has WPS, Wi-Fi, and LED control buttons. One one side, it has a USB 3.0 Type-C and USB 3.0 Type-A ports where you can plug external storage like a flash drive or an external hard drive for easy transfer and back-up of files on the home network.
On the back side, it has a 2.5Gbps WAN port and eight Gigabit Ethernet ports which are 10x faster compared to standard Ethernet. You can also find the power button, power port, and the reset button here.
Setting up the router is so easy thanks to the TP-Link’s Tether app. You don’t even need to open a computer or laptop to set up the router. All you have to do is to download the app, open your Bluetooth and follow the instructions.
One of the best features of the TP-Link AX6000 is the HomeCare that ensures every device on your network remains protected with a threat database updated live by Trend Micro.
It also has Parental Controls which lets you block inappropriate contents and limit the time spent on each device on your network.
When it comes to the wi-fi signal, the AX6000 has a wider range compared to the stock modem from our internet provider. The 5GHz band also works well since most of our neighbors are using the 2.4GHz band.
Remember that in order to maximize the features of the AX6000, you must also have devices that support Wi-Fi 6 standard such as the latest Samsung Galaxy smartphones and laptops with 802.11ax support.
This router is also recommended for gamers and live streamers who want to maximize their internet speed even with a lot of connected devices on their network.
