TP-Link’s Archer AX21 packs Wi-Fi 6 speeds into a compact, affordable package well-suited for smaller spaces. Its space-saving design measuring just 5 inches square can fit anywhere while providing faster and more reliable wireless coverage than older routers. It’s ideal for apartments or dorm rooms.
Simple setup guided by TP-Link’s Tether app on your mobile device makes it easy for networking novices to get better connectivity right out of the box. The AX21 may lack USB ports or advanced networking options, but covers the essentials well. That includes beamforming for targeted device connections, MU-MIMO for smooth streaming to multiple devices, and WPA3 encryption for better security than the common WPA2 standard. For its low cost, the AX21 brings Wi-Fi 6 and core features within reach.
