Linksys, the connected home division within the Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) entity, has announced the latest addition to its WiFi 6 product line, the Max-Stream AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 router (MR7350), which delivers whole-home mesh technology, faster speeds, greater coverage, and more at an affordable price.
The AX1800 is designed to, like other WiFi 6 routers, accommodate the growing number of connected devices people have in their homes while maintaining good speeds, range, and overall performance. The router, like others, is backwards-compatible with current and previous-generation devices as well, including those on WiFi 5, WiFi 4, and earlier standards while still operating at a higher capacity to meet the increasing bandwidth demands.
The MR7350 follows the Max-Stream Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR9600) announced earlier this year, offering the latest WiFi standard and signature Linksys Intelligent Mesh Technology for a fast, reliable and seamlessly expandable home WiFi network, says Linksys. Designed with the same scalability and flexibility of Linksys mesh systems, it provides speeds up to 1.8 Gbps and coverage of up to 1,700 square feet.
“At Linksys, we believe that WiFi is the foundation of the modern home,” says Kannan Vardarajan, Director of Product Management at Linksys. “We are witnessing a shift in home productivity as more consumers rely on their home network for remote work, virtual healthcare and entertainment, and we’re proud to be offering an affordable, innovative, future-ready solution with the Max-Stream AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR7350) for consumers to enjoy today and for years to come.”
Certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, the MR7350 meets industry requirements for interoperability, security, and reliability. It is compatible with the entire Linksys Intelligent Mesh portfolio and can be used in addition to any Linksys mesh product to amplify Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home. It can be used as primary router or as a secondary node to existing mesh system.
The router is easy to set up from any Android or iOS device using the Linksys app, after which you can enjoy remote access to features like guest access, parental control, device prioritization, and insights on how to get maximum performance.
The Linksys Max-Stream AX1800 Mesh WiFi 6 Router (MR7350) will be available in Canada for starting July 3 for MSRP $200 but is on pre-order now at retailers like Best Buy. It joins the Max-Stream Dual-Band Mesh WiFi 6 router (MR9600), which was announced at CES 2020 earlier this year. That model offers 6 Gbps of speed of coverage of homes and businesses up to 3,000 square feet in size.
