If you’re looking for a Wi-Fi 6 router that’s priced more like a budget one, the TP-Link Archer AX6000 should fit the bill. It may not be as fast as some of its competitors, but the Archer AX6000 delivers all the features and security needed to safely fill a home with data.
I like the review format, but I'm wondering if you could provide your findings on things like data transfer speed, and what the max speed is on each channel (2.4 vs 5G). Do you capture these data points when you are testing?
I could not care less if it's not the fastest router available, it just runs and runs and runs without issues. It's Sept 22 and I have probably not rebooted it since last year, its CPU and memory use are stable, and devices never have issues connecting. I have owned enough routers to appreciate one that's more than fast enough that never has any kind of issue or needs a reboot.
