Model: Archer AX6000  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.7 Build 20200212 rel.7095(5553)

Hello TP-link Community,

 

I need your help!

 

When setting the Operation Mode of the TP-Link Archer AX6000 to Access Point would we lose some of the features provided by WiFi 6 (outlined below)?  For example, would we lose the Multi-User MIMO Feature for 5GHZ, OFDMA, Airtime Faireness?

 

(Info taken from TP-Link Archer AX6000)

 

4x Larger Capacity

  • OFDMA greatly increases the number of connected devices by assigning channels to more devices

 

3x Faster Speed

  • 1024 QAM and Long OFDM Symbol boost overall speeds up to an incredible 6000 Mbps 1

   

Boosted Coverage

  • BSS Color technology ensures stable connections by eliminating signal interference, while beamforming and Rangeboost deliver a stronger and far-reaching network.

 

  1. New technologies that come with 802.11ax, such as 1024QAM and Long OFDM Symbol, allow the router to provide industry-leading speeds of up to 1148 Mbps on a 2.4GHz band and 4804 Mbps on a 5GHz band. With the maximum bandwidth increased to 160MHz4, you enjoy blazing-fast speeds without any lag.
  2. With OFDMA and MU-MIMO technology, Archer AX6000 provides up to 4× higher capacity and throughput compared to standard AC routers in dense usage environments, greatly increasing the number of connected devices.

 

 

Thank you!

Hello,

 

Basically, all the Wi-Fi 6 features will be saved as before when the AX6000 works as a router, it will not be modified by simply changing to AP mode.

 

Good days.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.  I appreciate it!  I set my router to AP Mode and verified some of the features I was worried about losing are still present (MIMO and OFDMA).
