While we haven't yet tested the AX6000, we have tried the brand's mesh WiFi in the form of the AC3000. We were especially pleased with its advanced functions, such as quad-streaming (which allows you to stream or download on up to four devices and 6 GBPS (billions of bits per second) wireless speed—not exactly a surprise, since NETGEAR is a widely-trusted brand in the tech world. We also loved that system's duality (it serves as a WiFi router and speakers), along with its Amazon Alexa capabilities.
While the AX6000 can't be used as speakers, you can use plug it into computers and gaming consoles via the wired ethernet ports. The AX6000, which has more than 5,000 five-star ratings on Amazon, is also superior to the AC3000 in a few other ways.
For starters? The AC3000 covers 25 devices, whereas the tri-band AX6000 pack can cover 35 to 100 devices at once, so you won't have to worry if your household uses the internet on phones, laptops, TVs, and tablets galore. It works with all web providers, and the 2.5 GBPS ethernet ports support multi-gigabyte Internet speeds, making it ideal for simultaneous video streaming, downloading and the like.
Just like the AC3000, which left us seriously impressed by the aesthetics at first glance, the sleek, mesh AX6000 is gorgeously designed. Safety is also a top priority, with parental controls that offer internet time limits and usage monitoring, and there's built-in antivirus and theft protection for all of your devices.
Not sold yet? It's also a breeze to configure. Simply take advantage of the easy, stress-free app setup, which will assist with creating a guest network and testing internet speeds, and you've got a system that's bound to blow you away.
Reliable internet, here you come!
