* The 160MHz bandwidth may be unavailable in the 5GHz band in some regions / countries due to regulatory restrictions.
* Compatible WiFi 6 device required.
** The data compares speed of 4×4 11ax on 5GHz 160MHz bandwidth with 1024QAM modulation to speed of 4×4 11ac on 5GHz 80MHz with 256QAM modulation.

Flexible Network Naming

Uniquely, ZenWiFi AX lets you choose how you name your WiFi networks: a single name for everything, or separate names for each frequency band. The choice is yours!

Tri-band. Zero slowdowns.

Unlike traditional dual-band mesh WiFi systems that sacrifice half of the total wireless bandwidth to the backhaul connection, ZenWiFi AX features a tri-band design with a full WiFi band for the backhaul, maximizing system performance and stability. With this upgraded design, you’ll experience fast and stable WiFi, even when data transfers through multiple hubs to reach your device.

Backhaul Configuration

ZenWiFi AX allows flexible configuration of the backhaul connection. You can set the second 5GHz band as a dedicated or non-dedicated backhaul connection, enabling maximized backhaul speed or freeing up the fastest 5GHz band for connected devices. If you have Ethernet ports in your walls, you can also set ZenWiFi AX to use Ethernet backhaul, reserving all three WiFi bands for your wireless devices for even more stable and reliable networking.
