The best Wi-Fi 6 mesh routers you can buy

The best mesh router is fast, reliable, and covers a wide area so that your internet connection is solid. Mesh routers shouldn’t be fussy, they should do the job and give you the options to tweak your Wi-Fi in the way you need it. Everything from gaming, movie streaming, and simply browsing the internet must be handled as easily as a plain old router but with the benefit of being an entire network in your home or building. These are the best mesh routers that you can buy today.

The best Wi-Fi 6 mesh router

The best mesh router is easily the one that is as invisible as possible during everyday use. For us, that’s the ASUS ZenWiFi XT8. It offers the best speeds, lowest latency, and some of the best coverage compared to other mesh routers out there. It’s exactly what you need when you want your best devices like the HONOR MagicBook 14 to run as smoothly as possible.

If you’re looking for something cheaper, you can easily look at the eero Pro 6 or even the Netgear Nighthawk MK63. Both mesh routers offer strong connection speeds and simple setups, but the latter is a bit more discreet if you don’t want to announce your networking solution to everyone in your home or building.
