    Can either of these be flashed with dd-wrt or open wrt?

      not yet as far as i know, too new

      •  

        as XanderYuan said theres a roadblock into getting it dd-wrt/open wrt onto them and not much progress has been made from a year or so ago as far as I've read, cause was looking to see if someone had done it myself.

        You can program them with options that exist but aren't viewable on the stock firmware by using a program someone made that lets you add what changes you want to the factory firmware then flashing it with the modded one though.

        •  

          Hey bro, do you have the link to that program / firmware?

    Will this provide coverage to go through 3/4 walls and 15 metres in distance? I'm using the Deco 5 mesh system but am interested in upgrading to WiFi 6. So I'm wondering if I would need a new mesh system to go with this.

        The router has great reviews, they can definitely make a good one.

        The language on the Chinese version is however Chinese only. No English option. To get English you need to buy the (slightly) more expensive global version. Most reviewers for this (Chinese) model just loaded the page in Chrome and used its translation feature to understand what the options are.

      There is no global version. There is one version, and it has chinese language. The app is in English though, and chrome will translate most of the web interface.

      FTTN, FTTB = VDSL2 modem + Xiaomi.
      FTTC = NBN NCD + Xiaomi.
      FTTP, HFC = NBN NTD + Xiaomi.

      •  

        I'm FTTC - so chuck out Voda modem and get this yeh?
        Any benefits in doing so other than looks?

        •  

          Swap the Vodafone router for the Xiaomi router. In doing so you lose Vodafone's automatic 4G failover. Vodafone's router is good to keep as a backup and for ISP tech support reasons.

          Better Wi-Fi speed and Wi-Fi range.

      •  

        will this really work with HFC? got told by ISP that you need a special router and that not many of them work with the NBN NTD

        • +1 vote

          Xiaomi works with HFC. There is no such thing as a special router.

          • +3 votes

            @Twix: He probably means the HFC providers who require VLAN tagging.
            Not all Routers will allow you to do so.

            •  

              @MasterScythe: The ISP rep saying that not many routers work with the NBN NTD is false. Any router with a WAN port is compatible with the NBN NTD. VLAN 802.1q is done on the ISPs end. Churn ISP or use a switch to tag the port. Problem solved.

              •  

                @Twix: sigh amateur hour over here.

                @Jaspa7: It's uncommon, but a few of the big boys do require it. Very few of the budget ISP's do though; so most ozb users are fine.

          On HFC and use the Xiaomi AX6000 with my NBN NTD. Works perfectly

      •  

        How about Telstra 5g with HTC Smart Hub?

        •  

          I'm not sure. I don't have 5G.

    • +2 votes

      FTTN: in addition
      FTTP: replacement

      FTTN required a VDSL2 modem. This router has an Ethernet WAN port, not a VDSL2 modem. This is how you know.

      FTTN users can disable WiFi on their ISP modem and connect it to the WAN port on the new router, or put their ISP into bridge mode.

      In bridge mode the new router is the only firewall which makes NAT and inbound stuff easier, this is the method I recommend. It means that games that rely on upnp will work seamlessly too.

        Thanks. See my above comment.

    Do these models need a backdoor snooping/spying fix like others?

    • +5 votes

      Pretty sure every manufacturer that isn't open source has back doors built in

      • +1 vote

        I actually doubt this, for one reason.
        As part of the WRT scene, one thing we're always doing is reverse engineering firmware to look for injection points for a sideload.

        And there are hundreds, if not thousands of us, doing the same.

        I can't think of a single time ive seen a "backdoor" in the router. ('Cloud' management tools aside)
        Telstra have one, but thats to allow remote assistance (still stupid; but getting necessary as people get dumber).

        The 'worst' ive seen is using their own DNS to collect metadata; which is far from a backdoor.
        Its not even really useful data; its verging on metadata.

        i mean sure; scan your wan IP for open ports, from your phones 4G or such by all means, but Ive never really found anything 'scary'.

        •  

          He means is this router phoning home like at least one other model of Xiaomi router. Some guys on the OpenWRT forums found that I think with the AX3600 and were putting a pihole in front of it to block certain domains. I would say yes, this would need the same.

    How do you get to US$109.21 (A$146.74) this price?

    It's showing US $234.91 for AU adapters.

    When checking out, it's still added 10% GST. Making it over $300 for the AX9000

    The price you mentioned does not include 10% GST.

    •  

      There's two prices mentioned in the title. US$109 for AX6000, US$218 for the AX9000. Prices are inclusive of GST.

      •  

        I know, but AX9000 when checking out, it will still add 10% GST, making it $238.22. which is over $300 AUD

          It's showing US$218 for me. Try following the store, the members discount should increase from 36% to 46%. See here

          Edit: Additional 10% discount may be because I'm a Diamond member. Tried following store on another account and didn't get the members discount.

    It's worth mentioning that these are WIFI 6E products, in case anyone was hesitant on that point.

    You've also tagged the wrong product.

    •  

      The other AX6000 deal which was revised by a mod was tagged the same. It's the correct tag.

      •  

        That's when you need a mod to create a product page, which they've now done for both models.

        •  

          Like I said, the last AX6000 deal wasn't tagged, it was then revised by a mod and tagged AX3600, hence why I said it was correct. If a mod tagged it as such I wasn't going change it :)

    • +1 vote

      Are you sure? The descriptions are a bit confusing as they mention Wi-Fi 6 enhanced but do not specifically say they support the 6Ghz frequency. If these 4x stream routers properly support 6E then they will make for a killer combo with multiple Intel AX210 equipped laptops or desktops.

      • +2 votes

        Exactly, nothing says it supports 6E (6ghz) only 2 bands listed in the specs 2.4 & 5 ghz…

      • +1 vote

        Seems there was some botched marketing and misinformation at launch: it extends beyond the Wifi 6 spec (notably with 4048 QAM), but it doesn't have 6E/6GHz.

        I honestly thought the spectrum had been released too, but apparently not.

        •  

          Spectrum released? Are 6E devices officially sold in Aus?

          If people import 6E then they will use it despite non compliant status. There is so little enforcement in Aus that people get away with a lot of non compliant devices.

    •  

      these are WIFI 6E products

      Completely incorrect.
      WiFi 6 only.

      •  

        Good that you read further to determine this had already been discussed

  •  

    Pardon my ignorance but what additional benefits this router provides than the router given by ISP. I live in apartment and use internet on phone/Netflix etc, no gaming. Is it worth upgrade considering I don't have any signal trouble.
    Thanks

    •  

      Speed and stability of a high end router( faster speeds further away). Future proof with wifi 6.

    • +3 votes

      The routers that come with nbn are usually bog standard. More expensive models have more features and usually have more powerful antennas

      One way to test is to plug your laptop directly to the router via lan cable and do a speed test then run another test using WiFi. If you get similar results on WiFi compared to lan then you really won't benefit from a new router. Unless you have a specific feature you want like QoS or flashing custom firmware

    • +2 votes

      They have faster chips, better coverage, support a larger amount of devices at the same time, cover new standards. Very hand if you have high speed internet, a lot of device to device wifi, a lot of smarts home stuff.

      OTOH If all you are just doing its surfing, gaming and Netflix on a 50 Mbps NBN being able to do Gbps wifi is mostly pointless. If your RSP router is doing fine no rush to upgrade.

        Pretty ignorant on your part. Even with 100+mbit connections some things require close to real time traffic, ie voip/gaming etc, while plenty of other things can be deprioritised such as streaming/file transfers. You are correct that with enough bandwidth, this is less of an issue, but you can definitely tell, which is why QOS exists.

            @Burnertoasty: Perhaps you don't understand the concept of QOS. So, none of your answers are helpful at all.

      QoS is good but if you have 100mbit it isn't really needed and it doesn't really do anything
