Are there any good-quality wifi6 access points out there, but without a router component?

 

I watched a review of the Amplifi Alien, which combines a router/access point and there is a bundle with a second access point as well.

 

I couldn’t find any wifi6 access points only - I have a great router already (Ubiquiti), so a router isn’t needed.

 

Ideally I would like two meshed AP’s as I have a long, narrow house and probably a single AP won’t cut it. I have two xclaims now, but thinking about wifi6.

 

Any ideas?

Simple answer is there are lots of options. Ruckus and Aerohive to name a couple of brands that I work with.

 

Complex answer is why you think you need it right now - especially as you'll be paying somewhere in the vicinity of $1000 per AP unless you know sobebody who can get you good reseller discounts.

Wi-Fi6 access point was a requirement for the lock down! Did you not get the memo?

And from what I heard Wifi 6 new signal multiplexer is strong enough that it scrambles covid19's RNA strand leaving the virus' lipid bilayer envelope intact.
Coupled with mutiple access points with carefully placed, in a pentagram configuration gives you absolute protection against even bacterial's macrophages.

 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, just needed a bit of mind exercise.. and it's only day 1!

 

Last time I checked even on the consumer level brands, only implement it on their top tier line up with premium prices, north of $600.
Probably better off waiting to get the features trickle down to the more mainstream products line.

thanks, pointed in the right direction. I don’t *need* it, but thought it worthwhile checking out. At current prices, it’s not worth it for me.

 

most of the crap I buy, I don’t need.
