†Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput, wireless coverage and number of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and client location.
‡Use of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) and its features including OFDMA, HE160, and TWT requires clients to also support corresponding features. The 160 MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions. Actual power reduction by Target Wake Time may vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors.
§The 802.11ax white paper defines standardized modifications to both the IEEE 802.11 physical layers (PHY) and the IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control (MAC) layer as enabling at least one mode of operation capable of supporting improvement of at least four times the average throughput per station (measured at the MAC data service access point) in a dense deployment scenario.
△HomeShield includes the Free Basic Plan. Fees apply for the Pro Plan. Visit https://www.tp-link.com/homeshield for more information
*Use of WPA3 requires clients to support WPA3.
**This router may not support all the mandatory features as ratified in IEEE 802.11ax specification.
***Further software upgrade for feature availability may be required.
Actual network speed may be limited by the rate of the product's Ethernet WAN or LAN port, the rate supported by the network cable, Internet service provider factors and other environmental conditions.
