ASUS RT-AX56U Router
With the entire family stuck at home, your bog-standard router may not be able to support having so many devices connected to it at once – for that, you’ll need something more capable like the ASUS RT-AX56U router.
This router supports AX1800 dual-band Wi-Fi 6 connectivity – meaning you get bandwidths of up to 80MHz and 1024-QAM that allows for up to 25% increase in data rate throughput. On top of that, MU-MIMO and OFDMA tech increases capacity, allowing more devices to connect to it.
The router is currently priced at just RM399 (listed price RM1,299) – a nice 69% saved on what could improve your WFH experience.
