Best Wi-Fi 6 mesh routers 2022

The best Wi-Fi routers are almost always of the mesh variety since they're fast, reliable, and cover a much wider area than a typical router. Mesh routers shouldn't be fussy; they should do the job and give you the options to tweak your Wi-Fi the way you need it. Everything from gaming, movie streaming, and simply browsing the internet must be handled as easily as a plain old router but with the benefit of being an entire network in your home or building. These are the best Wi-Fi 6 mesh routers that you can buy today.

The best Wi-Fi 6 mesh router

The best mesh router is easily the one that is as invisible as possible during everyday use. For us, that's the ASUS ZenWiFi XT8. It offers the best speeds, lowest latency, and some of the best coverage compared to other mesh routers out there. It's exactly what you need when you want your best devices like the Dell XPS 17 9710 to run as smoothly as possible.

If you're looking for something cheaper, you can easily look at the eero Pro 6 or even the Netgear Nighthawk MK63. Both mesh routers offer strong connection speeds and simple setups, but the latter is a bit more discreet if you don't want to announce your networking solution to everyone in your home or building.

There's also the TP-Link Deco X90, which offers the best coverage range out of all of the routers listed here. If you live in an extremely large home and want to prioritize range over having the absolute best speeds, it will likely be the best Wi-Fi 6 router for you.
