†Maximum wireless transmission rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Range and coverage specifications are based upon test results under normal usage conditions. Actual wireless transmission rate and wireless coverage are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of 1) environmental factors, including building materials, physical objects and obstacles, 2) network conditions, including local interference, volume and density of traffic, product location, network complexity, and network overhead and 3) client limitations, including rated performance, location, connection quality, and client condition.
‡Use of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) and features including OFDMA and Target Wake Time requires clients to also support corresponding features. Actual power reduction by Target Wake Time may vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors.
§Use of WPA3 requires clients to also support WPA3.
