Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and client location.

Use of Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax), and features including OFDMA, 1024-QAM, or HE160 require clients to also support the corresponding features.160 MHz bandwidth may be unavailable on the 5 GHz band in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions.

§Archer AX72 can connect 64 devices on the 5 GHz band, and 48 devices on the 2.4 GHz band. Performance may vary depending on the applications and environmental factors.

*HomeShield includes the Free Basic Plan. Fees apply for the Pro Plan. Visit tp-link.com/homeshield for more information.

**Use of MU-MIMO requires clients to also support the corresponding feature.

***This router may not support all the mandatory features as ratified in Draft 3.0 of IEEE 802.11ax specification.

****Further software upgrades for feature availability may be required.
