Q1: How can I connect Archer AXE300 to the network?


A1: There are 3 ports can be used as the WAN/Internet port, choose one and connect it to the ISP modem, then all the other ports will act as LAN.

  • 1× 10 Gbps RJ45/SFP+ Combo WAN/LAN Port (The combo port pairs a RJ45 port with an SFP+ port. Only one port in the pair can be used at a time.)
  • 1× 10 Gbps WAN/LAN Port
  • 1× 2.5 Gbps WAN/LAN Port


Q2: What if I cannot find the 6 GHz network?


A2: Wi-Fi 6E is hardware-dependent, please ensure the client device supports 6 GHz Wi-Fi.

  • Some mobile devices that support 6 GHz, such as Samsung S21 series, confirm with your device manufacturer to confirm compatability

  • PCs or Laptops should be equipped with a 6 GHz Wi-Fi card to be able to see the 6 GHz Wi-Fi network.

*Maximum wireless signal rates are the physical rates derived from IEEE Standard 802.11 specifications. Actual wireless data throughput and wireless coverage, and quantity of connected devices are not guaranteed and will vary as a result of network conditions, client limitations, and environmental factors, including building materials, obstacles, volume and density of traffic, and client location.

**Use of Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax) and its features, including OFDMA, HE160, and 1024-QAM, requires clients to support the corresponding features. The 160 MHz bandwidth is only available on the 5 GHz band. It may be unavailable in some regions/countries due to regulatory restrictions.
