It will be priced at $599.99. As many offices continue to work from home, we required wireless tech like WiFi 6E. In comparison to WiFi 6, the 6GHz band is added in WiFi 6E. It uses 64-bit 1.8GHz quad-core processor, which helps in video streaming up to 8K. Also, it helps the users who prefer to play games.

As it is a tri-band 6E, it will support your earlier 2.4 and 5 GHz-supported devices as well. Thus, you won’t be forced to change every device. Netgear claims to offer you speed up to 10.8Gbps by unlocking the 6GHz band. “As regulatory bodies around the world open up the 6 GHz band, Wi-Fi 6E networks will provide enabled devices with the breathing room to use large channels even in dense and congested areas with higher average data rates and lower latency.”

The LAX20 and the LM1200 are two of them. The former comes with four-gigabit ports. It is already available in Europe for the customers. The latter is an LTE mobile router. It is supposed to be launch in January 2021 for $150. Netgear has not announced any release date for the Nighthawk RAXE500 Tri-Band Wi-Fi router, but we expect to hit the market by the spring of this year.
