It's time to upgrade to a Wi-Fi 6 router if you haven't already. The TP-Link Archer AX21 AX1800 Wi-Fi 6 smart router has dropped to $79.99 at Amazon. That is $20 off its regular price, $10 less than a deal we shared a few months ago, and an all-new low price for this router. No matter how you look at it, we're talking about some good savings here.

When it comes to value, we generally recommend the AX1500, but the router on sale here today is a step up in terms of performance and today it is only $10 more thanks to the sale.

TP-Link makes great routers. The sort of routers that perform really well but also don't empty your wallet. The company somehow manages to always find that balance between super affordable and super functional. The AX1800 strikes that balance perfectly, too, with amazing Wi-Fi 6 speeds and other features.

With the Archer AX21 you get dual-band and Wi-Fi 6 tech for fast speeds, great capacity, and reduced network congestion even when compared to other TP-Link routers. Stream, game, and download whatever you want without clogging up the network or bringing down the network. You'll get Wi-Fi speeds up to 1.8 Gbps thanks to 1200 Mbps on the 5GHz band and 574 Mbps on the 2.4GHz band.

Rely on this router to keep you connected even if you live in a home with a whole bunch of devices trying to connect at once thanks to the built-in OFDMA technology. You can connect your laptop, mobile device, smart home, gaming consoles, and the rest of your family's devices all at the same time without worrying about dropping them.

The Beamforming tech also ensures you get the strongest signal no matter where you're connecting from. It helps focus the signal strength and keep it strong even across larger distances. The four external antennae help ensure you stay connected in the corners of your home as well.

Use the TP-Link tether app to set it all up easily when you first get your router.
