While it promises fast connections, the RT-AXE7800 failed to deliver in our tests, making it a poor buy.
TP-Link's Archer AXE75 offers decent performance and features at a value price for entry into WiFi 6E.
Offering Wi-Fi 6E connectivity for under $150, the Tenda RX27 Pro is a solid value. However, its 6-GHz speeds are disappointing.
If your devices are compatible with the 5-GHz band, then the Netgear R6700AXS is a solid and predictable budget option—especially for families in need of traffic metering and parental controls.
