It doesn’t surprise me at all how Xiaomi launches various smart devices for home and our life. Today I want to talk a little about the new generation of Wi-Fi 6 router called Xiaomi Mi Router AX1800.
Many of us have met with Xiaomi routers and many know how they have excellent data transfer for a reasonable price. Let’s check what new things appeared in the new generation of the router and what should we expect?

In appearance, the new Xiaomi router does not remind me of the router at all, since all the antennas are hidden inside the case. At first glance it is difficult to determine what kind of device it is, whether it is a wireless speaker or some kind of humidifier.
This design decision is not the first time that Xiaomi has come across. Earlier, the brand introduced another interesting model of the Xiaomi Mi Router AC2100, which is very similar to the new AX1800.
The entire body of the Xiaomi Mi Router AX1800 is made of matte black plastic, which is quite practical in everyday life. On the front part you can see two LED indicators with the designation Internet and System. The back of the router received three LAN ports and one WAN port with power and reset buttons.
Naturally, the new generation of the router operates at frequencies of 2.4 and 5 GHz or 802.11a/b/g/n/ac/ax. The maximum speed at 2.4 GHz will be about 574 Mbps, and at 5 GHz – 1201 Mbps.
Inside the case, a new Qualcomm IPQ6000 chip is installed, which works with five cores, where four of them are Cortex A53 with a frequency of 1.2 GHz and one NPU module with a frequency of 1.5 GHz.
The device has support for up to 128 connected devices at a time. If we compare the performance with the previous generation of the router from Xiaomi, then the Mi Router AX1800 grew by 130%.
In addition, the router uses OFDMA data technology. It guarantees data transfer to 8 connected devices at the same time. This feature will be useful for gamers who often play online games and they demand a stable signal.
You can talk about the various functions of the new router model a lot. But I want to note that compared to the previous generation, the new Mi Router AX1800 has a number of strong advantages, both in terms of performance and in terms of signal quality.
Another important feature of the new Xiaomi Mi Router AX1800 router is the price. Currently available at a low price of around $55. The price tag is even lower than its predecessor, but the functionality is much more interesting.
