Wifi 6

Post by RonH »

Our broadband router is to be upgraded to this new spec together with a faster broadband wireless to house connection.

From reading, WiFi 6 is stated to be backwards compatible so I assume no problems with connecting our pc' s, smartphones, printer and Internet radio, all purchased within past 3 to 5 years. Likely we do not have latest tech for WiFi 6 and so would not be able to utilise the faster speeds just yet.

Anything I should be especially aware of :scratch:

A WiFi 6 router will automatically communicate using WiFi 5 with devices that don't support WiFi 6, so you shouldn't have any problems.

Thanks Hans. Good to get 'double checked'.
It will be great to at last get a decent wireless to house broadband speed for up/down data transfer.
