Alien + Wi-Fi 6E ?


  • “Wi-Fi 6E devices are expected to make it to the market relatively quickly after regulatory approval, as it only requires changing the antenna tuning / RF front end on existing devices.“

    Hi @UI-Brett - did you guys take into account the 6 GHz spectrum when tuning the Alien’s 12 polarity antenna and RF front end?

    Or maybe planning a WiFi 6E Alien Pro with 160 MHz channel widths?

    That 6 GHz spectrum range sure sounds nice for mesh backhaul...


  • I would love to know this as well...


  • I asked Brett still waiting he said he will look into it, I'm extremely curious about this also, I'm thinking that would explain why the alien is only at the moment available in the USA at this stage, possibly being delayed to implement 6E or I hope that is the case.

    I'm not even sure if my Asus router supports 6E.


  • My vote is for a Pro model. It needs a 2.4Ghz, 2x 5Ghz and 2x 6Ghz radios. Also all 2.5Gb ethernet ports. The dual 6Ghz is for 1 to be a dedicated backhual if you want.

    Also this will be a hardware upgrade, unless they built it in somehow. Broadcom is already releasing new chipsets.
