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.
