Xiaomi Cost Value WiFi6 Routers

Xiaomi released Cost Value WiFi6 Routers into markets.  The price is around $50-100. What’s WiFi6? IEEE 802.11ax is a wireless local area network standard. The Wi-Fi Alliance calls it Wi-Fi 6, which is also known as High Efficiency WLAN (HEW).

The Wi-Fi Alliance launched the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6 certification program on September 16, 2019. On January 3, 2020, the IEEE 802.11ax that uses the 6GHz frequency band is called Wi-Fi 6E.

802.11ax supports all ISM frequency bands from 1GHz to 6GHz, including the currently used 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, and is backward compatible with a/b/g/n/ac.

The goal is to support indoor and outdoor scenes and improve spectrum efficiency. Compared with 802.11ac, the actual throughput in a dense user environment is increased by 4 times, the nominal transmission rate is increased by 37%, and the latency is reduced by 75%.


  • Backward compatible with 11a/b/g/n/ac
  • Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA): In a demanding environment, the channel is effectively shared for both the uplink and the downlink to improve network efficiency and reduce delay.
  • Multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO): allows more downlink data to be transmitted at once, enabling the access point to simultaneously transmit data to more devices.
  • 160MHz channel: Increase the bandwidth to provide higher performance with low latency.
  • 1024 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation Mode (1024-QAM): Improve the throughput of Wi-Fi devices by encoding more data in the same amount of spectrum.
  • Target Wake Time (TWT): Significantly extend the battery life of Wi-Fi devices, such as Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
  • Transmit beamforming: Supports higher data rates within a given range, thereby providing greater network capacity.
  • 4 times OFDM symbol duration (symbol duration)
    Adaptive clear channel assessment (Adaptive CCA)
    The security standard is upgraded to WPA3

Xiaomi Cost Value WIFI6 Routers

Other thinking about Xiaomi Cost Value WiFi6 Routers:

Comparing with customerized soft router, we call these routers integrated with switch and wireless Access Point as “hard” router. These router is easy to use and configure, mostly for consumer-market. However they are less features and processing ability, not suitable for a complex and commercial environment.

Consequently, you can still DIY a soft router with strong features and processing ability, and get Xiaomi WiFi6 router just as WiFi6 Access Point.
