Yes, it’s been finalized. It’s that old that wifi 6E is just around the corner - the worlds first 6E router will be released by Asus in Dec 2020.Isn't the Wi-Fi 6 standard still yet to be finalised? If so, then it's probably not worth spending hundreds of Pounds on an AX router just yet.
Latest high spec BCM/QCA wifi radio's will always perform better than previous versions due to natural evolution of tech . A bit like why a 4x4 wifi 5 router will perform better with 2x2 clients than a 2x2 wifi 5 router will, despite throughput being limited to 2x2.Interesting... What changes have been introduced for AC clients to work better with AX APs?
Do you have any throughput numbers to substantiate that as I am struggling to find any?Latest high spec BCM/QCA wifi radio's will always perform better than previous versions due to natural evolution of tech .

Here you go, throughput tests from Tim Higgins @smallnetbuilder comparing throughput to 2x2 wifi 5 clients from 3x3/4x4 wifi 5 routers versus 2x2 wifi 5 access points:Do you have any throughput numbers to substantiate that as I am struggling to find any?
I have asked Ubnt support if this holds true on their APs as it will seriously impact on the choice of APs that I deploy, given the launch of their new AC Lite range.
Wish I could do that: My Lenovo laptop is BIOS locked and won't let me change out it's paltry 72mbps single stream N NIC. Meeh. :-(I've upgraded my Thinkpad laptop to wifi 6 using this card, its a fairly cheap & very easy to do upgrade:
Desktop PC has been upgraded using this card (also Intel AX200 based):
Thanks, I think I will probably end up with the Netgear. I am very tempted to replace the Ruckus and get a wi-fi6 extender instead but given how much I've already spent will need to think hard about that and may just run 2x wifi networks and hide the wifi6 for myself!!!Get the Netgear RAX200 if you can afford it. Superb router for Wi-Fi coverage and you *may* find you can get rid of 1 or more of your existing access points.
I'm pretty used to channel separation as I have had to do the same thing for zigbee devices. I even have a chart of channels used! Not played about with the power - will try and playabout from thereJust make sure that they are not on the same channels and that you balance the power output on both your Ruckus and the RAX200. Most routers and access points are often defaulted to auto - which is maximum power which can cause problems with other devices, especially in close proximity with one another. Channel separation is your most important though and they ideally want to be 5Mhz apart, so if your AP is using Ch1 your RAX200 wants to be on 6 or 11, and you will need to check this for both 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz
