TP-Link Archer AX3000: Wi-Fi faster than the "cable"

By | December 6, 2019

TP-Link wants to introduce us to the Wi-Fi 6 era and promises wireless Internet faster than that achieved using a standard gigabit Ethernet cable. The way to do this is the Archer TX3000E card.

What is Wi-Fi 6? It's a chance for super fast wireless Internet

Fast Internet today is not only a whim, but even a need. In the case of smartphones, we have to receive it along with the 5G network, but even more important may be the "classic" connection. In this case, the promise of significant improvement is the IEEE 802.11ax standard, called for short Wi-Fi 6.

Thanks to the latest technologies (such as MU-MIMO or OFDMA) Wi-Fi 6 can use the same bands as the "five" (ie 2.4 and 5 GHz), but offer much higher speeds. Recently, for example, the TP-Link Archer AX6000 router with a maximum bandwidth of 5952 Mb / s has hit Polish stores.

Sending is one thing, but you also need something to receive such a signal – and this is where it comes …

TP-Link Archer TX3000E network card, i.e. Wi-Fi 6 for everyone

Currently, to achieve real transmission speeds above 1 Gb / s you need to focus on a cable connection. Break with it has a new one TP-Link Archer TX3000E network card, working just in the Wi-Fi 6 standard. Specifically it will provide transfers up to 2976 Mb / s (2402 Mb / s in the 5 GHz band and 574 Mb / s in 2.4 GHz). Among other things, thanks to 1024-QAM modulation and a 160 MHz channel it is possible to outrun the capabilities of Gigabit Ethernet.

We connect the TP-Link Archer TX3000E card via PCI-E, a two omni-directional antennas we will put it outside to increase the quality of the connection. The manufacturer also promises low delays and a high level of security, which in turn is to ensure WPA3 encryption.
