Needs to go lower. Especially if these speeds are lower than what AC routers are still offering at a cheaper price point.

Im debating whether WiFi 6 is worth it, I signed up for Meraki Webinar and have the MR33 with 3 year free cloud license. Teams calls still come out choppy on Video and not sure if it's WiFi or my iPhone XR, using FIOs 200M plan.

This is the very low end of the TP-Link AX range. It you need a new router it might be OK, but it's not going to be an "upgrade" over most AC routers.

I've been using the AX50 for almost a year (I was a beta tester for it) and don't have a single complaint - but it's also over twice as fast as this one...

How's this compare to the Netgear Nighthawk AX4 4-Stream AX3000 Wi-Fi? I found that at my local Walmart for $95. I haven't opened it yet, so if I can save some money with similar performance, I may go for this.

Missing 160Mhz band frequencies which is a big feature of WiFi6. And missing WPA3 for proper security.

I've been using this for months and it's a must have when Every device in your home has WiFi6 or will soon.

This is a slower router than higher end AC Routers, & has been at $70 at Walmart for months.

I just replaced my 5yr old TP Link AC1900 dual band, with a TPLink Triband AC4000. Available at Costco for $130.

Likely one of those things supports AX. (The Note 10+, and possibly the iPad if it's literally brand new)

Zero chance any of the rest do.

You recommend the RT-AX3000? How are ASUS routers in general? Reliable?

BTW the RT-AX3000 is available at Best Buy for $160: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=6377908
Tempted to grab one as I really need a new router.

There's also a higher tier AC router for $213: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/asus...Id=3937062

Not sure which would be favorable...? Obviously if you need WiFi6 (and WPA3) you gotta opt for the RT-AX3000, but if you don't have any WiFi6 devices anyway...?

Thanks!

I'm curious, do you foresee the RT-AX3000 being obsolete anytime soon? I need a new router as well and am tempted to grab that one too. I just would hate to buy it and then find out a year from now that a new significantly better router is available.

Looking at the tech info depot wiki for its detailed hardware specs, IMO it's low 5GHz 11ax rating (1201 Mbps) is totally defeating the purpose of a WiFi 6 upgrade.

Eventually they all will. My only WiFi 6 devices are a laptop and my Note 10+ but the benefits of WiFi6 are far beyond just WiFi6 capable devices. The snappy ness and quick response is instantaneous even on devices that are not WiFi6. I attribute that to less congestion on the Frequencies the router can seemlessly juggle a 2.4Ghz tablet and a 4K TV on 5Gz while updating a WiFi 6 phone.

Lastly YouTube buffering is non-existent. That's enough for me.
I just want to point out the logic doesn't make a ton of sense. The devices which don't support 802.1ax are not going to support it in the future. So, no eventually the devices you currently have will not support it. If you mean that eventually the other devices you buy will support it, well sure but that logic of getting a router to support future devices doesn't really provide any tangible short term benefit aside from what you mentioned about band congestion.
