Netgear RAX40 Router

Excellent service from NetGear SG and Kaira Global, especially Cedric Yeo. Fast response and support. This Wifi 6 Router has increased my wireless speed from 300 Mbps to 866 Mbps.

For those who are planning to install VPN, this is one unit to invest as it has VPN option already installed and it is considered as 1 device on VPN set.

Forget about Routers from your ISP, they will not provide you the machine with high-speed capability so that you invest on higher broadband from them. And in case you move house, you can always bring this router with you which make this a good investment.

Introducing Wi-Fi 6 - The New Standard of WiFi 

What is Wi-Fi 6 (also known as AX WiFi)? 

The demand for data is increasing faster than the capability of current WiFi standards.

This standard of WiFi provides faster speeds and a substantial increase in network capacity, allowing more devices to connect to the network at the same time. Wi-Fi 6 is especially ideal if you have more than 20 devices connected on one network.

More Efficient WiFi for More Devices

When multiple users simultaneously stream video, download, play games, or run their smart home appliances, the network loses efficiency and performance suffers.

Wi-Fi 6 is built to handle more wireless capacity for your growing home network.
