WiFi router speed rating
All the routers tested below support Unifi with HyppTV unless stated otherwise.
Only ASUS router support Maxis with VOIP working properly. Some TP-Link routers may not support VOIP.
Please buy local ASUS router as China model do not come with our VLAN profile and much lower WiFi transmit power.
What WiFi adapter to buy?
Here are the only WiFi adapter that I filtered that are decent.
WiFi 6 Adapters:
All the WiFi 6 adapters currently in the market are PCIE only and they are all powered by Intel AX200 chipset.
Performance are the same since they all use the same solution from Intel.
|TP-Link TX3000E||3 years warranty with external antenna cradle.|
|TP-Link TX50E||3 years warranty without antenna cradle.|
|ASUS PCE-AX58BT||3 years warranty with external antenna cradle.|
|Intel AX200||You can actually purchase the Intel AX200 from Lazada and install yourself for notebook users.|
|TP-Link T9UH AC1900||- Affordable, stable and perform well.|
|TP-Link T4U AC1300||- Even cheaper and just a bit slower than T9UH. Do not come with USB cradle.|
