Subscribers will be able to install Plume's pluggable Wi-Fi mesh SuperPods and manage their smart home services via the 'WiFi Your Way™' App, Atlantic Broadband says in their press release here. However, if a particular desktop or laptop enables Wi-Fi 5, the adapter will be compatible with it.

With Alexa built-in, you can use the Deco Voice X20 to control devices in your home, including both the speaker itself and smart devices that support Amazon Alexa. Deco Voice X20 also supports Alexa calling, messaging, and announcements (ACM), which expands the range of interactions between Deco units or with other Alexa built-in devices. These products include Deco X96, Deco X76 Plus Mesh models with smart hub, as well as Archer AX96 and Archer AX206 routers with 10GB ports. Simple plug and play delivers smooth, reliable combined speeds up to AX1800 (574 Mbps + 1200 Mbps), ideal for large file transfers, online learning lessons, and FPS gaming. The Deco X96 and Deco X76 Plus are both tri-band systems, and they'll use the new 6GHz network as a backhaul to communicate between router notes.

Other key features include AI-driven mesh and seamless roaming. 6E routers are only just arriving this year, so you can expect some of the best bandwidth and lowest latency ever - though we also expect a high price tag. Its Smart Antennas establish a strong backhaul to boost coverage and improve wireless connections. It's a 10G router with multiple ethernet ports capable of hitting 10Gbps, plus a dedicated 6 GHz band for Wi-Fi 6E. Linksys Aware allows for existing smart devices such as thermostats or doorbells to act as points of communication, expanding motion-sensing coverage area and allowing consumers to get a more detailed picture of where exactly motion has happened in the home. Auto-negotiation for 100Mbps/1G/2.5G/5G/10G connections provides optimal performance, while its durable metal casing and desktop/wall-mounting design are well-suited for many environments. 8 ports option is also available if you need connect more.

The device also supports TP-Link HomeShield, which protects IoT devices, has parental controls, and can create security reports. Deco X80-5G, a gateway solution that combines 5G and WiFi 6 technology, increases download speeds up to 5.0 Gbps and is 33 times faster than 4G. Its whole home Deco mesh technology ensures strong WiFi signals everywhere.

CES 2021, D-Link introduced its latest solutions which are equipped with Wi-Fi 6 technology: DWA-X1850 AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 USB 3.0 Adapter And D-Link AI M32 AX3200 Wi-Fi 6 AI Mesh Router.

For a couple of years, Wi-Fi 6 was hyped as the solution to wireless networks that had become over-crowded with smartphones, computers, and countless smart home devices all demanding their slice of bandwidth.
