Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput, wireless coverage, and connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and client location.

Use of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), Wi-Fi 6E, and features including OFDMA, 1024-QAM, and HE160 requires clients to also support the corresponding features. Not all seven 160MHz channels may be available in the 6 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions. The double channel width refers to 160 MHz compared to 80 MHz for general WiFi 6 routers.

25% faster of 1024-QAM refers to the speeds compared to WiFi 5 (802.11ac) 256-QAM.

*HomeShield includes the Free Basic Plan. Fees apply for the Pro Plan. Visit for more information.

**All devices need to support 802.11 Wi-Fi protocols. In order to have a Wi-Fi 6E connection on 6 GHz, you may require a client supporting Wi-Fi 6E.

***A separate modem or gateway may be required. PPPoE, Static IP, and Dynamic IP are supported. PPTP and L2TP may also be supported under certain configurations.

1. Use of WAP3 requires clients to also support the corresponding feature.

2. This router may not support all the mandatory features as ratified in the IEEE 802.11ax specification.

3. Further software upgrade for feature availability may be required.

4. Actual network speed may be limited by the rate of the product's Ethernet WAN or LAN port, the rate supported by the network cable, Internet service provider factors and other environmental conditions.
