(Pocket-lint) – Today, most of our household activities revolve around the Internet. We use it for shopping, streaming movies, TV shows, playing online games and, increasingly, working.
Fulfilling all these needs requires a stable and fast Internet connection, which makes good Wi-Fi a must in every home, office and home office. Unfortunately, this is not what we get in most default configurations.
If you have a normal setup, it probably looks something like this: A broadband cable plugs into your router, which routes the connection through LAN and Wi-Fi cables. And if you move too far from the router, your device loses connection.
As a result, you may experience poor internet stability, which affects all your online activities.
Fortunately, technology company devolo has stepped in to address these issues with its latest range of Wi-Fi repeaters. devolo WiFi 6 3000 repeater AND devolo WiFi 6 5400 repeater are designed for maximum efficiency and the fastest and most stable Wi-Fi connection.
Let’s find out the main features of these high-end repeaters.
Advanced Wi-Fi 6 technology
As the name suggests, devolo WiFi 6 repeaters support WiFi 6 technology, which is the latest generation in connectivity. Wi-Fi 6 is more advanced than previous versions as it enables faster speeds, significantly reduced latency, better network security and even a possible increase in battery life.
The Wi-Fi 6 standard uses Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) technology. It is a modern modulation technique that ensures that each data stream enjoys greater bandwidth. Therefore, more devices can connect to high-speed Wi-Fi.
The Target Wake Time (TWT) feature improves efficiency and has a direct impact on battery life. When a device does not need a constant connection to the Internet, the TWT protocol puts the connection to sleep. This feature can help Wi-Fi 6 smart devices installed in your home work longer without charging.
In terms of network stability and performance, devolo repeaters are equipped with BSS (Basic Service Set) technology. This means that several access points can use the same frequency band, minimizing Wi-Fi interference.
Finally, sending and receiving data packets is facilitated by MU-MIMO (multi-user – multiple-input multiple-output) technology. This protocol allows multiple clients to send and receive data packets at the same time. MU-MIMO is a particularly valuable solution when many devices require a real-time connection.
The best feature of the Wi-Fi 6 capabilities of devolo repeaters is that you don’t have to worry if your smart devices or computers are a little older. Wi-Fi 6 powered by devolo repeaters will work seamlessly on most devices.
Seamless installation and connection
The latest devolo WiFi 6 repeaters are designed for full compatibility. You’ll be able to connect them to your router and other devices, regardless of make and model. Installation is performed in three steps:
- Plug in the repeater.
- Press a single button.
- Start using your Wi-Fi.
The button in question activates the Wi-Fi smart mesh option which will build your home Wi-Fi network in an instant. devolo WiFi 6 repeaters use your router’s access data to create hotspots with the same username and password.
In addition, the Wi-Fi network uses what is known as client routing and access point routing. When these features are enabled, each device automatically connects to the access point with the strongest signal. This means that wherever you are within range of your devolo repeater, your smartphone or other device will receive the best possible Wi-Fi signal.
In terms of physical placement, devolo WiFi 6 repeaters will help you determine the best location for the device. Ideally, the extender should have strong Wi-Fi reception from your router so that the signal it transmits is just as strong. Each repeater has a signal strength indicator, making it easy to find the optimal location in your home.
If you need help setting up your new devolo WiFi 6 repeater, you can download devolo Home Network, a free app for Android and iOS devices. The app features a simple setup wizard that will give you step-by-step instructions for the process. In addition, you can use the devolo Home Network app to configure various Wi-Fi settings.
Highlights of devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 and devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 5400
Although both repeaters have the same function, some of their characteristics are different. Let’s look at their similarities first:
- Support for Wi-Fi 6
- Wi-Fi network option
- WPA2 and WPA3 encryption
- 2.4 and 5 GHz repeaters
- Signal strength indicator
- Integration with the devolo Home Network app
- Full compatibility with all routers and end devices
devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 – Distinctive feature
of devolo WiFi 6 3000 repeater it is named so because of Wi-Fi 6 support and maximum connection speed. The device can transfer the Wi-Fi signal at 3000 Mbps. devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 has 2×2 MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) antenna configuration for this.
The repeater also supports wired Ethernet connections through a gigabit port.
The way this repeater is used in the desired space is perhaps one of its most attractive features. Instead of being connected to a computer, the devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 3000 has a housing that plugs directly into a wall outlet. This type of housing makes the repeater very versatile – it can be placed anywhere there is an outlet in your home.
devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 5400 – Special features
The 5400 model is more powerful and reaches a maximum connection speed of 5,400 Mbps. This is possible thanks to a strong antenna configuration – the devolo WiFi 6 Repeater 5400 has a 2×2 plus 4×4 MIMO antenna configuration.
The Ethernet port connection is also stronger, with the extender featuring two gigabit ports.
Regarding placement, devolo WiFi 6 5400 repeater it is designed with a desktop box. It can be placed on any flat surface. Since the repeater is likely to be placed in a more visible position, it is designed to look decorative and aesthetically pleasing.
devolo is dedicated to improving the networking capabilities of homes and businesses. Founded in Germany in 2002, the company is now present in nearly 20 countries. With its global presence, devolo continues to advance network solutions for millions of customers in various industries.
