TP-Link Tri-Band Wi-Fi 6E Router AXE5400, ¥12,990 + ¥3416 Delivery (~A$167 Delivered) @ Amazon JP


This one is straight from "Fantastic Beasts" movie, never confirmed to actually exist. But Wifi 6E!
About A$167 delivered to AU. You need to create Amazon JP account.
I first got this TP-Link RE815XE access point to feed my Quest 3 with Wifi 6E, but now I want to try this too, RE815XE firmware is too barebones.

  • Can we order from jp?

    • I just did :) You need to create Amazon JP account.

  • How much is this in Australian yen, or rupees or whatever we use around here?

      About A$165 delivered

  • Stupid question: do these work ok in Australia?
    I vaguely remember finding some discounted routers on Amazon UK, but reading on OzB that there were problems with using certain overseas routers here….

    • -1

      Definitely a risk. It will work for sure, just some radio channels may be unavailable or power capped. But one Im willing to take, returns are easy, and it might be reflashed by OpenWRT or original but AU firmware.

      • UK power restrictions are limited in hardware as far as I know so I imagine it'll be a similar case here.

        By the looks of it, there doesn't seem to be an equivalent Australian version. There is also something called the Archer AXE5400 but in a different form factor so who knows if the hardware is the same or not.

        • There is also something called the Archer AXE5400

          There is a shit ton of different AXE5400s, lol

        • I have this https://www.amazon.com.au/TP-Link-Dual-Band-Gigabit-Supporte…
          It's super similar.

          I don't have 6ghz but it's WiFi 6.

          Speedtest I'm sometimes getting over 100mps and my plan is 100/20

            6E on the 5ghz band

            IMHO Wifi 6E is 6GHz, no such thing as Wifi 6E on 5GHz.

            • @[Deactivated]: Lol then I'm stumped how to get it working on 6ghz

              • @Cheapsize: Relax, you have neither 6E, nor 6GHz, all is good :)

      • It is not on the OpenWRT list https://openwrt.org/toh/start

        • Last time I checked OpenWRT doesn't support any WiFi 6GHz device yet

    • -1

      The router will speak in Japanese..

      • Bluetooth device ready to pair

        • The Bluetooth device is connected successfully

  • +1

    Any reviews on this - especially range??

    • Range won't be optimistic on 6GHz or 5GHz IMO

      • -1

        6GHz should be fine, full power full 160MHz channels, kinda the reason Im getting it.

      • I have been using 6 for a couple of years now, range is obviously slightly shorter but the bandwidth is pretty high.

        • Are there any reviews of this Japanese model? I cant seem to find any..
          Looking more for range - around 550 square meter home…will the range of 2.4ghz/5ghz be okay?
          Was initially looking at TP-Link mesh setups like the TP-Link Deco X55 or X50 AX3000 (obv no Wifi 6 E but)

  • I bought one, I guess we wait and see.

    • Respect for the brave!

  • Great price, Just from spec wise looks like TP-Link Archer AXE75 here without the external antenas, duno if any other differences.

  • +1

    Ordered! Thanks OP.

  • Plash speed?

  • Browsing other routers the BE85 is also alot cheaper from Japan ATM.


    The cheapest I can find this in aus is ~$1800 from good guys commercial so I'm very interested in this. Anyone have any idea if this would be gimped in the Japanese market?

    The listing says:
    [Standard value] As of September 2023, the bandwidth of 320 MHz and 240 MHz cannot be used in Japan. The speed of this product is 5760Mbps (6GHz) + 5760Mbps (5GHz) + 1376Mbps (2.4GHz)

    Probably a long shot to ask here, but would this be hardware limited? Could it be unlocked with Australian firmware? If so, this is an extremely compelling option

    • No Wifi thing should cost $1000, this is just crazy mad!

      • I knew this comment was coming and was tempted to preempt it. How much I spend on my home network is not really the discussion I'm looking for :)

        Id like to maximise throughout within my network and I'm renting so ethernet drops are not an option. I need something with wireless backhaul and wifi 7 will give the fastest wireless backhaul.

        It's an expense I'm willing to pay; I just want to know if the restrictions in this particular case can be bypassed

        • What your client device is capable of? Nr of 802.11ax MIMO streams?

        • Nobody questioned how much you spend or should spend on your home network, that is your discretionary decision.

          The comment was about the piece of equipment for home environment that is indeed on expensive side, same as some of ASUS WIFI6 mesh routers.

          • @dr: same same; people love making comments about expensive routers. value is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Thank you, OP! I purchased two to create an EasyMesh WiFi alliance echo system, which is an open standard and compatible with a wide range of devices from other networking vendors, making it more future-proof than TP-Link's open OneMesh or Deco systems.

    Another advantage is the availability of a 2.5 GB LAN/WAN port, which is only available with the much more expensive TP-Link XE75Pro systems (A$489).

    Japanese Wifi signals are half the strength of AU routers (mainly 5 GHz), but that doesn't matter if Wifi clients aren't as powerful as the router and can't connect to it. Most experts recommend lowering your WiFi router signal power to reduce signal noise, heat and power consumption, increase WiFi client battery life, and focus more on increasing the number of APs and routers, so I'm going to install two and connect with a 2.5Gbps Ethernet backhaul.

      Does this mean the router will struggle to send signal to all corners of my house ?

      Compared with a normal router. ?

    • Isn't this the reason why all the UK routers are so much cheaper? Lower strength, lower bandwidth?
      Can someone educate me? Otherwise if it's of no consequence, the UK routers seems great value.

  • These will likely come with a dual vertical prong power adapter but you should be able to gently bend the prongs to match an Australian plug as I think the voltage is similar, and also because many power bricks now are switching anyways.

    • +2

      Unfortunately voltage not similar.
      At the end of World War II Japan adopted the same voltage and frequency as United States.
      110 V 60 Hz
      Up until recently Australia was 240 V 50 Hz.
      More than a decade ago it was lowered to bring us closer to the European standard of 220 V 50 Hz
      Australia is now 230 V 50 Hz Standard
      However, the power brick should be multi voltage and Support Au power. Check before plugging it in

    • You could alternately use a $2.50 travel adapter instead of bending the prongs.

  • Having not had to (touch wood), what's the returns process like with Amazon internationally shipped items? More specifically in this case, Amazon JP?

  • Shipped!

    • Did your Quest 3 find the wifi 6e signal? Quest 3 units in Taiwan are not shipped with Wifi 6e enabled. I suppose in Australia they would be..

      • +1

        Yep. Quest 3 shows Rx 2.1 Gbps and Tx 1.7 Gbps link speeds.

        • How do you position your router for best signal to your quest 3?

          • @gronze: Taped under my chair

  • Got mine today ,
    As the fellow was upgrading our home to fttp

    • Awesome!
      So what is the summary on the 2.4 and 5ghz ranges?
      Is it half powered vs Australian routers?

      How's the range otherwise?

    • is the interface in japanese?

      • +1

        No you can set it to english the second the router admin portal loads. All English
