TP-Link revs its mesh Wi-Fi router lineup to Wi-Fi 6, but leaves Zigbee behind
TP-Link is showing three new mesh Wi-Fi routers at CES. Each model in the good, better, best Deco lineup is based on Wi-Fi 6 (aka IEEE 802.11ax), but none of them have the integrated Zigbee smart home hub that TP-Link brought to market with its earlier Deco M9 Plus.
The TP-Link Deco X90 leads the pack. This tri-band router promises to deliver 574Mbps on its 2.4GHz network, 1,201Mbps on its first 5GHz network, and a staggering 4,804Mbps on its second 5GHz network. The router has a dynamic backhaul feature that can utilize all three networks for that purpose. TP-Link says a $450 two-pack should be able to blanket up to a 6,000-square-foot home with Wi-Fi when it ships in April.
