    1. Supporting 4×4 MIMO takes a lot more power, and for battery powered devices, runtime is FAR more important.

      Reason why client devices still use 2x2 MIMO, not 4x4 MIMO

    2. How did your router even get a 'rating' of 5300 Mbps in the first place? Router manufacturers combine/add the maximum physical network speeds for ALL wifi bands (usually 2 or 3 bands) in the router to produce a single aggregate (grossly inflated) Mbps number. But your client device only connects to ONE band (not all bands) on the router at once. So, '5300 Mbps' is all marketing hype.

      Why routers get such a high rating

    3. The only thing that really matters to you is the maximum speed of a single 5 GHz band (using all MIMO antennas).

      What to focus on when choosing a router

    4. You have 1 Gbps Internet, and just bought a very expensive AX11000 class router with advertised speeds of up to 11 Gbps, but when you run a speed test from your iPhone XS Max (at a distance of around 32 feet), you only get around 450 Mbps (±45 Mbps). Same for iPad Pro. Same for Samsung Galaxy S8. Same for a laptop computer. Same for most wireless clients. Why? Because that is the speed expected from these (2×2 MIMO) devices!

      Reason why you may be getting slow internet speed on your client device (2x2 MIMO one)

    1. Where exactly did you leave the laptop in your office? Or where did you last see your employee Gary working? Questions like these are seconds or minutes wasted throughout the day, and cumulatively it may become an entire day wasted (or more) at the end of a work quarter. Now imagine a factory where thousands of people work together. How will you find the right person or the right tool without getting lost in this sea of resources?

    1. 8devices has now entered the fray with Qualcomm IPQ6000/IPQ6010 powered Mango WiFi 6 system-in-module available in commercial or industrial temperature range, as well as as a development kit based on the module.

      8device is awesome and has made really good modules at a great price for a while now i love this company & their support is definitely on par.

      i can't wait for a less frigging ancient core but wow still a powerful offering. good wifi! huzzah: that's what this module offers. on package. wow. the chip has some good ok stuff. 2x 5Gbe. usb3. a lane of pcie3. not bad. seemingly the lane of pcie is after the dual onboard 802.11ax 2x2? cause that's what this is really about. some wifi io.
