One of the best high-end network routers featured at the show is the ASUS RT-AX89X. It’s a dual-band AX6000 Wi-Fi 6 router, which means it can reach speeds of up to 1,148 Mbps on its 2.4 GHz network and 4,804 Mbps on its 5 GHz network. It also has tons of LAN ports. In addition to the usual Gigabit Ethernet WAN port, it also has two 10 Gbps ports – one Base-T and another SFP+ – and eight Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports. It’s going fine S$599 (about S$799).
