TP-LINK AX1500 Wi-Fi 6 Router $120 @ The Good Guys Commercial (Membership Required)


Seems like the cheapest WiFi 6 router I could find. Can’t speak for the performance of this router but it looks alright based on this review:

    The router is fast…but sadly not the internet in Australia.

    • Speak for yourself. I have a Gigabit Fibre plan through an NBN provider. Getting 900Mbps on some sites.

        Not sure why you got negged when plenty of people have gigabit capable NBN connections (2 million or so). Enough people to be considered as decent sized market.

        • No sure either. Maybe just people with a chip on their shoulder who can't believe there are a decent percentage people out there who have acess to Gigabit NBN connections at their home.

  • Good performance compared to RT-AC68U (in my testing) but fewer features for advanced networking

    • That has wifi 6?

      • I’m using that router at the moment and it doesn’t have wifi 6, though is widely regarded as one of the best AC routers.

      • Yes apples to oranges but as stated using a known-good device as a baseline

  • And how do we get in with a membership to the website do we need some special email or do we have to be a staff member or something?

    We run a construction business with an ABN does that help.

  • That's a fake one. Anything below 1800 is not AX…:-)

      mind to explain why? just curious if you have a link to share…

        He doesn't know that you can market your product as WiFi 6 without it utilising the 160Mhz bandwidth.
        The best features of WiFi 6 are OFMDMA and MU-MIMO. The incremental speed increase is not what wifi 6 is all about.

        • How does a normal ac2600 type router compare to a wifi6 one at 1800 spec?

          Range? Total as well as usable speeds at the long end of the range.
          Peak mb/s?
          Heavy user load?

          These are the 3 main things right?

          Obviously the older router with higher bitrate will have advantage on peak mbs but other 2 aspects?

          • @voter1: The number after ac or ax doesnt mean a lot in term of normal usage scenario as you quoted. Range is all about antenna configuration/ quality (and the obstructing materials if you're within the line of sight with the wireless AP. Multi-AP set up always give you better speed/usability than a massive 11 antenna inverted spider looking AP. That said, you might not be able to tell the difference if you live in a small-medium home and not on a gigabit plan.
            Heavy user/device load gets better with each standard and ax is revolutionary I terms of putting multiple low bandwidth devices (smart home shits) into smaller sub-channels, leaving room for high bandwidth use like video streaming. You only gets to use ax features if both clients and router have ax though.

        • Ah yes… I know some of these words…

  • it maybe the cheapest Wifi 6 router for Aus stock, but definitely not the cheapest Wifi 6 router. Redmi AX5 is probably the cheapest Wifi 6 routher on the market, which selling less than AUD$60 on Aliexpress.

    Xiaomi AX1800 can be found for around on Aliexpress AUD$70 and they support Mesh as well. I bought 2 when they were on sale and works beautifully as mesh network.

    • TGG is local store selling with local warranty, can't compare it to Aliexpress cheap junk

      • I did say it maybe the cheapest for an Aus stock. However, I won't call Xiaomi AX1800 cheap junk as it's works pretty good for me when compared to $100+ local stock.

        • -1

          when you receive the product without local warranty and its turns out to be a faulty unit, it becomes cheap junk

  • Can anyone confirm that it is ok to be use with TP link Wi-Fi Mesh System AX1800 or AC2200 M9 Plus

    • +1

      My understanding is this won't act as a mesh router add to these systems. Is designed to be used as a stand-alone router. To add to the mesh systems you would want to look at any of the TP-Link Deco's.
