There are some great inexpensive Wi-Fi 6 routers out there, and you should definitely take a look at our roundup that includes popular brands like Asus and TP-Link. This Netgear router isn't on there because it's not a cheap router. At least, not originally. It'd definitely be on that list at today's price, but today's price is temporary and it's not going to stay for long.

Netgear's router is super easy to set up and manage, too. All you need to do is plug it in and use the Nighthawk app on your smartphone. It will walk you through all the steps you need to take. Plus, once it's setup you can use the app for so much more. Customize the router to your specifications. You can manage all your Wi-Fi settings, test your internet speed, view your speed history, and even monitor your data usage over time. All of this is great, especially if you need to see how your internet is being used in your home.

The router includes four Gigabit Ethernet ports so you can hardwire devices like gaming consoles or your computer for a more stable connection. It also has a USB 3.0 port for hooking up a hard drive, printer, or other device.

Of course you'll get some super fast Wi-Fi 6 speeds with the AX1800. It can handle Wi-Fi speeds up to 1.8 Gbps, and it works with all devices that have Wi-Fi 6, including newer Apple and Android smartphones.
